Unless i have missed it in the list already:
Connection - If the wifi connection drops, can it auto reconnect.

Currently if my router is rebooted I have to manually reboot the camera to get it to reconnect.

This sounds like a network issue, not a missing DCS-942L function. All Cloud cameras should automatically reestablish network connectivity (wired/wireless) in the event of router reboot.

I don't know what is wrong, but motion triggering is broken in 1.23 (can't find it in the wishlist?). It works in 1.21 and 1.22. I have enabled video clip by email on motion between 7:30-16:15 mon-fri, also set SD recording. I get no video clips on the sd-card according to the schedule and no emails with video clips. I have the exact same settings in 1.21 and 1.22 - and it works! How comes no one else seem to have this problem? Is it because I use 24 hour-clock? Isn't 16:15 a valid time or something?

Please re-post this issue on the DCS-942L - Firmware v1.23 Comments & Observations thread.

Are there any other DCS-942L owners experiencing this issue?

Field for User Name in E-mail Settings Too Short

I own 3 x DCS-942Ls and I'm quite happy with them.
However, I've found out that the field for User Name input in E-mail settings for either Video Clip or Shapshot is restricted to just 30 characters.
That doesn't suit mine which consists of 31 characters.

I've got a DCS-2332L as well and no problems when inputting my user name.
 
Could this please be rectified?

Re: DCS-942L - Firmware Wishlist

Wishlist:

1. The ability to stream recorded video files, rather than to have to download each separate recorded video and play it remotely. After all, we can view live video via RTSP in this way, so why not recorded video?

I imagine this would be like a PVR/DVR function and realize this implementation may fatten the firmware beyond of the DCS-942L's firmware bloat limit because it would require several video decoders (the camera only encodes video ATM AFAIK).

Implementation might be through RTSP, or even an IPTV concept where each camera could be a "channel". Could have FF, REW, PAUSE, PLAY features like one would expect.

2. (related to #1) Smart TV app (Samsung, LG, GoogleTV, etc.) to play live or recorded video as streamed video. User controls would be the expected REW, PAUSE, PLAY, FFWD, and a seek slider bar.

3. (related to #1) Single frame capture, such as: pause the recorded streamed video and press a "button" and that frame would be saved as a .jpg

4. (related to #1) Streamed recorded video would continue to play each video file in sequence (preferrably without noticeable gaps between each file) until stopped by the user.

5. Face recognition (and tagging?): this is likely a hardware change, so outside the scope of this camera's abilities.
