Hi there,

Today I picked up a TP-LINK NC230 camera for some indoor security coverage of my garage. I did this because I've got a number of older TP-LINK cameras and their ONVIF support allowed me to use them without configuration on a Hikvision NVR. I'm not interested in the "Cloud" function as I already have the NVR set up for viewing from anywhere in the world.

However, when I attempted to use the camera, same as the older ones I had, it didn't work. "ONVIF Device Manager" detects the device and indicates that the device is regularly returning 400 Bad Request for services it advertised and for video streams the profiles it advertises don't work at all. Is there a solution or do I need to return the camera (and possibly switch to another brand?) I won't deny I'd be disappointed, the older cameras are great!
