  1. Hi GH75, I just saw your post. I don't log in very often because I've sort of lost faith in these "communities." There are only a few helpful people on here. It seems that the majority of users on here are eastern-market sellers looking for ways to hack region-locked firmware with the intent to sell to to western markets. As for your question, it sounds like you're on the right track. If the main stream is not being recorded, it should not matter. Why that DVR is going down is a bigger mystery. I don't use a DVR myself, but I have a QNAP Turbo Nas that I use as an NVR. I would try to troubleshoot that DVR. You said you have to reboot the PC, so does that mean the DVR is software running on a workstation, such as Windows?

  3. I missed your post the other day. Thank you for this Sutekh. If you run across the IVS feature, you'll be my hero.
  4. Could be your browser. Have you tried others?
  5. Many IP cameras allow multiple users to logged-in to their GUIs simultaneously, so If you had a second computer, such as a laptop, you could use one for the controls and the other connected to the projector. The computer connected to the projector would be logged into the camera and viewing full screen, while the other computer controlled the camera.
  6. I seem to remember having an issue like this on my Windows 7 PC. Ultimately, the system (user name) itself did not have full control permissions over the directory, so regardless of what the FTP commands were attempting to do, the system could not create or delete folders/files. Once I gave the gave the system full control in the security properties, which was a lengthy process, the FTP began working properly.
  7. Have you tried: http://IPADDRESS/cgi-bin/snapshot.cgi?chn=0&u=USERNAME&p=PASSWORD
  8. For your first question: I haven't seen it personally, but I've heard about it happening. It's probably the injector/switch failing. Your second question: The 4200S' max resolution is 1920x1080, which is 16:9. The 4300S' max resolution is 2048x1536, which is 4:3. Have you tried lowering the 4300S to 1920x1080 to match the 4200S?
  9. I prefer the IVS feature on the 10.R version, rather than the newer 8.0.R (7-10). Does the Synology automatically connect or does the camera need to be configured to communicate with the NAS, if in which case, check the Storage setting on the camera. The storage settings are typically wiped while upgrading the firmware. You said it seems to be motion detection, so that may have something to do with the IVS feature. You can upgrade to the 8.0.R version which doesn't have the IVS.
  10. We established that the FTP on the camera is uploading and functioning properly, so the problem seems to be the router. The Netgear R7000 has limited FTP functionality, so without the ability to create a username and password for the camera, this may be a dead-end. With the router's FTP authentication set to Admin, did you try using Guest (with no password) on the camera?
  11. I was having this problem for years, but now I use the IVS feature which works fairly well with eliminating false-positives. I have the IPC-HFW4300S's.
  12. I don't have experience with Hikvision, but by chance, is the camera's bit rate set to VBR? On my Dahua, when I set it to VBR, I'll notice the picture quality will drop substantially at random, then jump back up to better quality. I leave the cameras on CBR to avoid the problem. I hope this helps.
  13. Yes, the username and password where I have Cam1 is the FTP username and password. The remote directory does not need to exist first. The FTP username needs write access, so the camera can create and upload videos. Be warned, though, Dahua has (IMO) a stupid method of creating directories, so videos are buried somewhat deep in folders respective of camera, date, hour, minute, and a bunch of crap in between. I stopped using my router as an FTP server because of this, now I have a computer running 24/7 that acts as an FTP server with a scheduled task to pull videos out of those folders and sort them for me.
  14. I had a strange issue exactly like this when I upgraded to Windows 10. Regardless of which browser I was using, all streams in the web gui would fail. Reinstalling the plug-in did nothing, so I almost gave up till I tried reinstalling the NIC driver. For some reason, the network driver Windows 10 installed by default was affecting the browser and the driver was out of date. Once I downloaded and installed the up-to-date drive for the Asus motherboard, the browser began working like normal.
  15. You have the FTP enabled over the internet, so you will definitely want a username and password (I see foreign IP addresses attempt to log into my FTP all the time). As an example, I just connected to your FTP and it let me in with no problem. All I see is the shares folders (looks like there are two of them /shares/shares) To continue troubleshooting, type ftp://readyshare.routerlogin.net into your browser's address bar and see what happens. The browser should pull up the router's FTP space like it did for me. If that works, try typing readyshare.routerlogin.net as the server address in the cameras. The cameras may not accept a domain name, so if that is the case, you will need the exact IP address, which should be the router/gateway. An easy method to find the gateway is to bring up a command prompt (press the Windows key on your keyboard + r), then type cmd and press enter. The command prompt window should appear. Type ipconfig and press enter. Look for "Default Gateway" and the address next to it, which is what you want. Back on the cameras, type the gateway address into the server address for your cameras (where you have in the picture). You can also try installing FileZilla FTP https://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=client on your computer and connect to the FTP to get a more detailed look at where the hangup is. If you can log into the FTP, the cameras should be able to log in.
