When had it running on my Win machine, I didn’t bother running it as a service, I added it to the start menu, so it would run on boot up. I’m an idiot and just wanted access to the session window all the time and had bat files to stop and restart it w/o going to the cmd line. Once covid hit, and everyone working from home we had a lot of losses of the internet, and it was simplier to see when it was down, and stop and restart it, the way I was set up.
Now I’m running it on a headless RPi, and access it with VNC viewer as I wish.
I have the RPi restart each night, and it just seems more robust on the RPi than it was on my Win7 machine/workstation that was very busy all day long.
@Monocle mine did not get fixed automatically. I tried restarting the container which did not resolve the issue either. The only thing that fixed it was to stop the container and then start it a minute later. Now everything is back to working.
@ferrellsl Thanks for the tip. I did have it at 1080p because I thought the Echo Show 5 (I accidentally put 4 in my original post) supported it. However, I did change the camera to 720p and it didn’t fix the issue. I’ve tried everything I can think of. So frustrating.
@calumartin So after a month of troubleshooting and being a bit of a numpty I’ve narrowed my issue down to Vodafone blocking dns rebinding on their routers with no way of turning it off whatsoever.
I recently moved to their Pro2 fibre 900 plan with all the bells and whistles including a VoIP landline, which if I wanted to, I could trade for using my own router but unfortunately, I still use my landline daily.
With what I’ve seen on the patchiness of the show 5 gen3’s working at all I’m gonna wait to see if they get supported better before I get a seperate line run for my landline.
Its a shame because I went for the pro package as I thought there might be more functionality.
