      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Aqua Vu DVR owners

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased an aqua vu dvr and i would like to get an SD card for it. I see that they have SD cards which go up to 8 GB now but when i called nature vision about this they said that the largest SD card you could use would be 3 GB.

My questions are have any of you guys used sd cards larger then 3 GB and have they worked?

Where would you even get a 3 GB sd card cause ive never heard of them?

How much video can you record on a 1, 2, 4, or 8 GB card?

Nature Vision's HSOforum said that you could only get about 2 hours of video on a 1 GB sd card but i thought i read on here that guys were getting much longer times. Thanks for your help!

Mark,

Max is a 2gb card that you can use (3gb doesn't exist)The amount of video you can get per gb is related to the amount of movement on the camera, etc. But I think you get about 15min for every 64mb give or take....

Thanks for all of the input fellas and you are correct about 2 gb cards being the largest they can handle (i called NV again this morning and got a better reasoning).

So with that said, how much video can a guy put on a 2 GB card? I think if i did the math right it would be around 5 hours and 20 minutes when assuming you can get 140 minutes on a 1 GB card (that is what NV told me you would get).

It will also vary depending on the brightness of your display image. I know with digital cameras a photo that is a bit over exposed is considerably larger than one that is properly exposed, usually by 1/3 of the size. Many variables play into the amount of storage something will eat up.

As some know, I am somewhat in the loop of NatureVision.. I made a phone call to get a few more answers.. This is what I got.

With the Aqua Vu DVR recording time is somewhat variable with the 2G SD cards. It varies anywhere from 2-4+ hours depending on the amount of Memory being used. Less motion uses less memory and that is why you get extended capturing time in a stationary setting when ice fishing and less time when used for open water use. One thing to point out is the unit is flexible in that you can delete unwanted footage one the water to free up space.

So, I hope this helps you out!

You might be able to buy a 4GB card and it might just recognize the first 3GB of the card. Some technology is like that. It will accept higher amounts, but will only recognize up to the max that is can support. Computers RAM for instance does that. Computers will support a certain max RAM, but you can put an amount over that and while it will accept the RAM it will only use max amount that the computer can recognize.

Never tried it with an SD card, but it might work.

jpz,

Are you speaking about the HC cards?

NewEgg has a 4GB Transcend (TS4GSDC) Non-HC card for just under $8. At that price its cheap enough price to give it a try. Otherwise, if you're okay with the 2GB cards, then stick to that.

Are you guys speaking of the add on little box by nature vision or the actual built in camera with dvr they now make? My wife bought me a Aqua View SRX for my birthday and I have been wondering how they work. I looked at the possible dvr box by Nature Vision, or thought to just buy a camera to hook up to it.

    • I have a Minnkota 12V bow mount trolling motor but need a foot pedal as mine isn't reliable and they discontinued the product.  The connection of the cord is a little over an inch and oval in shape.  Thank you!
    • The wife and I have different tastes so I usually use an off the shelf prime rib rub and finish up with coarse ground salt and pepper. There are lots of great rub recipes out on the net depending on your taste and company
    • Good catch of the actions and reactions of the walleyes down there.
    • Nice catch for your little boy!
    • Drumming at night.  Did you go after them with you burlap bag and flashlight? 
    • The more i research there seems to be a consensus that there is not a reasonably priced inline reel on the market worth the price tag.  Along those lines i dont recall too many of the guys making a living in the industry using them, even though a few promote them.  Think mr genz, he has his name on an inline but i dont recall any youtube footage of him using one.  
    • I was sleeping in the topper of my truck two weeks ago and it was *thump....... thump........thumpity thumpity* all night long.  Maybe it's the yearlings just figuring stuff out and finding themselves? Young males thinking they are all that?
    • This looks promising.  Usually have the little guys but a little more age in these two. 
    • I’ve heard drumming deep into the summer when I was out trout fishing. I thought that was a little odd. It’s one of the nicest sounds to come out of the woods though, so if they do it year round, I’ll take it!
    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
