Hi.

Isn't there a way to make so after hitting the "Reload current page" button in Firefox we get back to the page we were at (in my case the Image Setup one, but it goes for all the other ones except for the Setup Wizard page), instead of being redirected to the Setup Wizard page (which we need only once in the beginning of the installation of the camera)?

Thanks.

No. The entire setup wizard is preloaded when launched and is driven from JavaScript that collects the required information for each page of the wizard. The pages displayed in the Wizard are actually driven through the preloaded JavaScript, so reloading the page will reset all the fields.

I am not sure we are talking about the same thing.

What I need is, after I reload a page (no matter which one), that I get back to it, and not the Setup Wizard one (which I have not called for).
You are saying: "reloading the page will reset all the fields.", but if we were talking about the same reloading of a page, how come my PIR Sensitivity under Motion Detection on the Setup page is "High" (the setting I modified) and not "Medium" as it is by default?
Are we addressing the same concern here?

Thanks.

I was referring specifically to the setup wizard page in the DCS-942L web UI.  If you look at the page source after selecting the setup wizard link, you'll find JavaScript for all pages in the Wizard, i.e. clicking "next" doesn't load a new page from the web UI, but is simply iterating through preloaded code.  So hitting refresh will cause all values in the setup wizard to reset to null values.

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

I was saying, that after I reload another page but the Setup Wizard one, I am ALWAYS redirected to it (the Setup Wizard page), which makes no sense to me.
Meaning, if I am on the Audio and Video page for instance, after I hit the Reload current page button on my browser, I am expecting the page to reload and come back to the Audio and Video page.
Which unfortunately does not happen, as I am always redirected to the Setup Wizard page.

Regards.

Odd. I have several different cameras (DCS-932L, DCS-931L, and DCS-5020L) and don't have that issue. Can any other DCS-942L owners validate/replicate this behavior?

When you are in the "Video page" that you are referring to, what is the URL in your browser? After you hit refresh, what is the URL in your browser?

Hi JavaLawyer, here's the video record of the thing: http://youtu.be/CABXcMqj2pQ

Thanks.


Thanks, I now understand what you were describing earlier.  It looks like the web UI behaves identically to the setup Wizard section in that the settings pages and all fields are pre-fetched in a single load, as is evidenced by the URL not changing for any of the links you clicked on in that video.  I suspect that if you look at the page source, all of the settings fields in the links you clicked on are pre-loaded into memory, so refreshing the page will purge everything.  The web UI for the DCS-930L and other related cameras does not operate this way, but rather, each page is independently loaded.  Odd...  :-\  ???

I'll add this to the FW wishlist, but practically speaking this seems like a major FW re-write if it's ever to be addressed. It seems that newer Cloud Cameras do not use this approach, so it's very possible the DCS-942L is unique in this way.

JavaLawyer, how about adding a feature to prevent the erasing of the pics and vids and formatting the Micro SD Card in order to prevent fraud and limiting the effects of hacking the camera?

The only way to erase the files and format the Micro SD Card will be after a reboot of the camera.
If one has it connected to a UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply), no one would be able to erase the files (not even the CIA ;-) ) by rebooting it.

Otherwise, once the camera is hacked, files may disappear ...
The "only once after reboot" safety feature could be applied to other safety issues, like changing the admin IP Address for instance (the only one the camera may be controlled from).

Thanks.

Re: DCS-942L - Firmware Wishlist
« Reply #237 on: January 13, 2014, 05:20:56 AM »

Hi JavaLawyer.

My LIVE VIDEO under Setup\Image Setup is not live very often.
Every now and then, it freezes to a certain time and does not want to be live anymore.
Even after a reload of the current page, or a closing of the current tab and reopening a new one.
Restarting FF helps though.

Thanks.
