Post subject:  Unexpected large file trips

We are running 4 servers with CamUniversal and IP cams. Camuniversal on all of the servers has been set up with the same settings. Each camera connected is also set up the same way within CamUniversal. On two of the servers the captures have been fine, however recently, as in the past couple of months, the cameras are randomly tripping for large file captures. There is really no rhyme nor reason to it, the settings have not changed and it isn't the same camera's each time. After some digging it is appearing that the camera will detect motion and record until there is none left, I have it set to record for an extra 5 seconds after no motion is detected. In the UI i can see that the motion capture icon is no longer there in the "Number Detected" column, however the recording icon in the "State" column is still there, which leads me to believe that even though there is no motion being detected the camera is still running and capturing data.

Has anyone else had this problem?

An interesting point I recently found out. I had turned off motion detection on all of the cameras, leaving only the preview icon in the State column. I then began noticing that several camera's had decided to just start recording video. Any ideas on why that is happening, as I feel that would point me in the right direction to solving my problem.

this could only happen, if the scheduler is running.

There are 3 possibilities to video record.
By motion detection, by scheduler or manually.
