The following isn't urgent and is merely an observation.

The past couple of weeks I've noticed a big lag in the loading of the webcams. It never used to do this. It is also not due to my network speed as it does so via two totally different ISP's on two notebooks. The cams show fine and then they blank out for a while before resuming again. The cam times are also out of sync and this sometimes causes problems when trying to save the images.

Satara cam light has been reported, Vinkie :thumbs_up:

Thanks for mentioning this, Dibles :gflower:
I also noticed this and thought it was my connection causing it. Will report this.
