  1. Aliva stated they are running 4.49. That version is a LOT older than 3 months. The oldest version in the versions list is 4.61 for Windows and that's dated 27th Sept 2012. But agreed, if Aliva is running the free version then it's all good I guess...I haven't run the free version in years so I didn't think of that...Good call.
  2. AGAIN - there is a new version of EA for Windows released - 4.96 Checking http://www.nchsoftware.com/accounting/versions.html - it isn't listed, there's no list of what has been changed. Am I to buy this obeying the principle that "any upgrade is a good upgrade"? NCH - are you just phishing for moar monet? Has anything actually changed or are you just trying to drum up more income? I'm sure you aren't, but how would one know? How about updating the Release Notes/Version History?
  3. That's a little misleading - MAY is not correct, the correct answer would be WILL.
  4. I see there is a new version of EA released. Yay - I THINK. There's no release notes. EA is a great program, I've been using it for years - but exactly WHY would I upgrade? What do I get for that? Also - the 3 months thing just plain sucks. NCH - you guys write some truly GREAT software. You really do. I've been a fan for a long time. But the "3 months then buy it again" thing - is a bit rude. Especially when you release new versions that apparently have a bunch of undisclosed changes and a different version number. Your pricing is fair for what I get, I would happ
  5. I've been testing EA out as an accounting solution on a Terminal Server. While the web interface is pretty good, and there is NOTHING I know of in the market that can do what EA does as well as it does for the price, size of program and speed, I have customers who want Windows interfaces and multiuser. It works perfectly on a multiuser system - but for ONE problem. Generating invoices. If I have two users generating invoices at the same time in the web interface - no problems, one can record their invoice and the other half a second later, and the numbering will be in order. 1
  6. I am an utter dick. I don't get infections on my business machine - EVER. I am an IT guy by trade, my PC is carefully protected by good Antivirus/AntiMalware software, I am religiously careful what I do on the web, I don't fall for scams, nothing. Malware/Spyware scans and Virus scans showed NOTHING. A clean PC. My children NEVER get on this computer. They have ample other machines to use, and if they end up infected I blow them away and reimage them. They are my sacrifical anodes. But the main PC they use died and I haven't had a chance to repair it. So my Son got on my P
  7. Hi, I have been using EA for a number of years. Overall I find the software to be EXCEPTIONAL, in its operation as well as it's efficiency, resiliency against crashes, incredibly small file size. What I am HORRIFIED with is what happened after installing the latest version. When the install completed, my browser started up (as happens with NCH products), and I expected it to direct me to something on their site. Not this time. I was directed to a "survey" where I needed to answer "three simple questions" to go into a "draw" to win an iPad, MacBook or $500 VISA card. At the end o
  8. What codec are you using to encode the data streams? Maybe this is the issue...If I was to use say Divx 6.0 with insane quality settings this would chew CPU resources, especially if I was running say 4 cameras...Actually under those circumstances combined with motion detection I reckon most PCs would shudder! Try an uncompressed video codec first off... Also check that your chipset/video drivers are installed and up to date - VIA drivers are notorious for being installed and windoze not using them, doze sticking with the M$ provided ones. In this case you have to do a manual search f
  9. OK - I tried a DVR card today with 4 X BT878 chips - perfect, no probs. Windows installs 4 devices for these types of cards (this one is a SZT 160) I'll try a card with 1 X BT878 ASAP
  10. There are two type of DVR cards generally found: 1 - 1 X BT878 chip - used in a round-robin-access setup between the inputs 2 - 4 X BT878 chips - used in either 1-chip-per-input or round-robin setup, good for 4-16 inputs (or sometimes even more) I have found that a number of DVR programs will not access the first type of card properly - they are not written to cycle through the inputs, so they either won't touch the card at all, or only read input 1. Most DVR programs will access the second type of card with no problems - each input (1-4) has its own capture device installed in De
  11. You say there is no drop-down box - do you mean you don't get a "Select a Capture Device" dialogue at all, or the drop-down box within this dialogue is disabled? Have you tried the card with the software that came with the card to see if it is functioning? I know you said you installed the drivers and software, but you wouldn't believe how many people say something isn't working without first testing with the software that came with the device... Is the device showing up in Device Manager? What driver is the card using? One provided by Microsoft or Brooktree or someone else? Can
