Been playing with this software, extremely impressed with it so far, just need to really test the motion algorithms.

Did you ever get a chance to test this?  I am looking to switch over to a software based system.  I currently a a Speco DVR but would like to step up to IP cameras, I was looking into Blue Iris myself.

I've been suing BI for over a year now. It is rock solid, packed with many features. Support is top notch. They just added geofencing to their long list of features.
I would highly recommend BI as the end all cam software.
