The camera was right out of the box and I had not made any settings changes, so a factory reset should not have been required.  Nonetheless, I did as you suggested and performed a factory reset, which made no difference to the constant noise - it sounds like an old movie projector.  I can hear sounds when someone speaks so I know the microphone is working and that it is not an inherent defect in the camera itself.

p.s.  The other surprise was that performing a factory reset did a deletion of the camera registration on the mydlink site in my account.  I had to completely reinstall the camera.  I was not impressed by that!

I believe this feature is intentional. There were a number of cases were users purchased refurbished cameras and were unable to register with mydlink because the camera was already registered under another name. The factory reset purges any residual registration data.

Below is a summary of everyone's input thus far. Please let me know if I over generalized, misrepresented, or missed anyone's concerns and I'll refresh the list with updates. Recent items are highlighted in blue. Items fixed in the latest firmware update are striked out.

If any items in the wishlist were fixed by the latest firmware, please post and I'll update!

In the power up sequence read time from the computer automatically. If the computer is not on then use the last time available. Make time a non-volatile setup parameter.

In the Web UI under SETUP > Time and Date there's an option to automatically synchronize the time/date from a user defined NTP server. Have you tested this functionality?

DCS-942L - great camera! Here is my wishlist for the next firmware release (I'm using v1.01):

- Change the "Send next FTP after" (Snapshot Setup) lower limit from 10 to 1 (as in the DCS-932L).

- Some sort of indicator that shows the motion detect is firing. Another indicator that shows the PIR is firing. This would help when configuring the motion detect parameters.

- ftp Test button (as in the DCS-932L)

Hi!
I just registered myself to this forum because I just bought this webcam of which I must say that, until now, it's superior to my expectations.

Whishlist:

1) A smb server to access files in sd-card. It would be very useful, i guess. And quite easy to do: my box came with the GPL license, so is a Linux box, so it would be nice add samba-common and samba-server, like in d-link routers.
2) Firmware update. The page on the webinterface links to the Taiwanese site ( http://www.dlinktw.com.tw/support/) which is funny but pointless. Unless you speak Taiwanese... :)

I post other wishes when I'll put this camera under production. If it will fit my expectation, will be first of other two webcam devoted to look over our family's country house.

See you soon, space cowboy...

In the Web UI under SETUP > Time and Date there's an option to automatically synchronize the time/date from a user defined NTP server. Have you tested this functionality?

Add my 1 cent to this wish. I just discovered that this setting is not carried over the next reboot.

For example, ntp server could not be accessible. In the place where my camera will work, I have no internet but just a local lan with no computers but just a router and some cameras. When I go there a carry my laptop with me.

So, one wish more.

Ok I found the first real bug bug.

Light sensor switches to night mode too early. My firmware is 1.10_1217 (EU) but it happens with 1.10_1229 as well.

In our living room with all the lights on, which is a lot of light, camera set up to night mode. The only way to get back to day mode (a color image along) is to point directly toward light bulbs.

I'll need other users to validate this as a bug before adding.  :-\
