Thanks for the screenshot.  The 2132L looks like it has more options regarding this, but the 924l is supposed to have this.  Just the simple option to turn off the ir lights.

Unfortunately, at present, the only way to simulate that functionality on the DCS-942L is to cover the IR lights (e.g. with electrical tape).

If that's the case, what is manual IR option for?  I thought it was for this exactly.  Because right now, manual IR apparently does nothing.

If manual IR should do this but does not, I would think it's a bug.

And in the firmware request list it lists:

Quote
Night Mode - Ability to disable IR Illuminator while the camera is in Night Mode (i.e. to enable application of a third party IR Illuminator) [FIXED!]

How is the above done?

I just reviewed the DCS-942L manual and you're absolutely correct -- my bad. If that's not functioning properly, then yes, we should characterize your request as a bug.

If you review the DCS-942L manual, there are instructions on how to use this functionality. There is an IR LED On/Off button on the LIVE VIDEO page on the UI that appears only when the camera is set to Manual IR. Please post back as to whether this functionality works for you.

It would be nice if the camera would work without ethernet cable.

With my Fritz Box the camera doesn´t work in wlan mode!!!!!!

But this is an already known problem. Shame on D-Link that they are not able to fix that!!!!!

The ability to copy all videos from sd card to computer without having to remove sd card and put it into pc. If we could just copy all sd files in the 192. website to hard drive that would be great as my camera is not in an easy location to get to.

My camera is on continuous recording so it becomes tedious to click on every single file to save it to hard drive, there should just be an option to "save all".
