How about this..

You have put the 1 good camera in the bad camera's location and all is fine?

Have you put the 2 bad cameras in the 1 good camera location?

Where in the world are you located? Southern Hemisphere?  what country?

I added 3 of my 2230 cameras.  I have one more S/N some where.
I wonder if these serial #s are unique..  I've bought most of these cameras at separate times.. and from different places.

I can only assume that each serial number is unique. On a somewhat related note, mydlink uses a unique 8-digit number that's hard-coded into each device as a unique identifier. Although the DCS-2230 is not a Cloud camera, I wonder if there is a correlation between the S/N and 8-digit ID. This is something I'll have to check out later.  ???  :-\

Maybe my hardware is too old?


QE1X1C9000046 vs QE301D2000047? 1vs3 and fw 1.00 vs fw 1.10?

I would assume hardware is the same. h/w: A1 is the same.

Pal/ntsc  can be handled in the firmware setting.

What are your settings for the video mode?

antiflicker off?
Your powerline is 50Hz, right?
white balance auto?
exposure mode  auto?  max gain 24dB?
denoise 0?
brightness 4?
contract 4?
saturation 128?
sharpness 4?

Does resault default goto 60hz or 50hz?

Or are you using some crazy shutter speeds?  I like low noise for in the dark.

Mmmm I think that IR Cut is driven from a specific sensor not from the image exposure etc...

PIR sensitivity is for the Passive Infra-red not for IR cut.

In export config this is for Day/Night:


dnc_mode=0
dnc_sensitivity=6
dnc_schedule=0
dnc_schedule_start=70000
dnc_schedule_end=180000
dnc_d2n=5
dnc_n2d=24
dnc_bw_mode=1

And this for IR br:

irledbrightness=100

My values differ ... in BOLD:

Had a strange thing happen today.. the infrared light turned off...

camera was set in night mode, and control set to sync.

I heard it click this morning and thought it was rebooting.  I manually undid the power and still no infrared light on reboot.   It's pretty dark so it should be on.

Camera on separate adhoc network with another device.

Moved camera to home network.

Removed the sd card and verified - it did turn off, camera didn't appear to have anything strange in the log file (other than a lot of network disconnects and reconnects). 
No issues with SD recording restarting on power disconnect.  SD card remounted.

turned infrared light to always on.

unplugged from wired home network, relocated it back, and plugged it in, everything looks okay.
infrared light is on.

So somehow the camera decided to turn off the light, but still stay in night mode.

f/w 1.10.02.

It was just strange, so I thought I'd mention it here.  (this is the first 2230 I've run with infrared light 24x7 for a couple weeks now).
