    Will HD cameras work with D1 DVR

    I didn't say I used ahd. I specifically said the camera supports cvbs and my question was if that technology were the same as my old dvr, which it is as I also said, and if that was all I needed for the camera to work with that dvr. I just mentioned the camera also supported ahd ... you are even quoting me, so don't give me that speech. If you can't understand my question it's your problem not mine. And I will buy a new dvr in the future but that's out of this question, your opinion on that matter wasn't relevant. I just need to solve the camera problem right now. These cameras I can connect to the new dvr, so NO problem at all buying them now.

    Will HD cameras work with D1 DVR

    We can only answer what you post D1 13 year old dvr can’t take digital analog Ahd was not used on cctv then so the hd cameras you have are backward compatible….. which is standard for cvi tvi ahd but you will only be using the D1 side of it which goes back to first post your going backwards HD 5mp cameras are around $20 now and a recorder is around $60

    Will HD cameras work with D1 DVR

    so it turns out my dvr can receive signal from that camera using cvbs as i said. I borrowed one to test it.
  8. Hi. There is not much expansion with smart cameras if any synology. Might be achievable but it will be open for others to see into your storage running on a vms will only give you basic video all the Ai is done on camera and is done via app you need to know if you have access to your cameras IP address and ports …. But since your camera setup is qr then it is most likely P2P app needs it connection to all the time
  9. Hi all. I'm pretty new to all the CCTV malarkey, but have a couple of SimCam Alloy 1S cameras that are currently running on the supplied phone App, but I'd like to go 'PC' for better control. SimCam provide info on how to connect up with Synology, but I'm aware that Blue Iris seems to have a decent reputation, so I was wondering if anyone could provide any pros and cons for either? Thanks :-)

  16. Having used a Floureon 8 camera DVR since 2019 with no problems . The unit recently stopped being accessed by iphone , also refusing to accept the login password for the system. The memory "jogger" showing blank . The Floureon website give a link to their "support" site but as yet my emails remain unanswered . Looking at various web entries it would seem that this is the norm with poor or zero feedback . Does anyone know the secret of how to get a reply from the company, or how to enable the unit to factory reset. There appears to be a firmware update which I am wary about using as this may render the unit completely unusable. The QR code that appears after being locked out links to nothing.

  17. i have an old 2015 model of sort DVR with system version DVR-G004L-EC 2.0.0000.6 release date 2015-05-06 it'll start recording automatically when you turn it on. and then every 59 seconds itll flash the date 2000-12-30 23:59:59 then it reverts into the system default of 2001-01-01 00:00:00 and then will record and set the recordings time on 2001till it all loops like that, if you even try to change the time and date to the current, itll only keep recording of current time then when the next 59 second hits the clock it still reverts to the 2001 date i've already did a format on the hardrive to clean the files, and did a hard reset on the device to load the default settings and all the box says the name "smart watch" H.264 DVR anybody knows how and where to find the latest software to flash it if possible. cant upload "large files" so i hope the link for some images works... box: version: back of the unit: front of the unit:

    Qvis Apollo 8ch DVR

    Hi stevee yes the hard drive out of your pc should work … just check the drive speed as the Apollo only uses 7.200 rpm …. It will be listed on the drive its is worth doing your self it won’t stop your recorder working To be honest instead of calling an engineer to insert a hard drive on a old machine like that I would spend the money on a new dvr you will save money we’re are you located

    Qvis Apollo 8ch DVR

    Hi tomcctv, Thank You very much for your kind offer. I didn't particularly want to do it myself as at the moment I have a working system and with my clumsy fingers might end up with one that does not work but if I cannot get anyone to do it for a reasonable price, that is what I might have to do. How much should I expect to pay to have the hard drive replaced, and how much to completely replace the unit? I have had a local company recommended and could do with knowing what to expect their prices to come in at. I have just been looking hard drives up and if I do end up having a go myself I have a Western Digital 1.5TB green sat here that I took out of an old pc before scrapping it (first time I have opened a pc up but thought it wasn't a good idea sending it to the tip with hard drive in place), would that do or should I be looking at something else. Some people say green will work fine but others say it won't.
  22. Thank you for the information! I guess things have changed in last 15 years. Just wondering, is there such a thing as a CVBS to TVI converter, so I can connect my old camera to the new system? A quick search I can find a TVI to CVBS converter but not the other way around. I only ask because it looks like I can get a new TVI camera with the varifical lens I need, but it's a little pricey.

    Qvis Apollo 8ch DVR

    Hi stevee £90 is not bad to just move a mouse and click on format it’s very technical wonder how much he would charge to get some tools out £200 to fit a hard drive …. 5 mins work…. There is no programming just two wire connections but less than £200 you can have a new dvr with the ability to change your cameras overtime to 4K so gives you another 5 to 10 years but first if you have a Philips screw driver I will send you a hard drive for free for your pioneer take top cover off then turn unit over and you will see 4 screws holding hard drive in … unplug the two wires and insert new one then see if you have the same problems does that sound like a plan

    Qvis Apollo 8ch DVR

    Hi Tomcctv, Yes I am using the explorer app, got it working eventually with compatibilty view. The first time it stopped recording the guy who came out to it just formatted the disc and told me if it stopped again would need a new hard drive, so that is where that information came from, he didn't open it up and was only here 10 mins and charged us £90. He said if he had to fit a new hard drive it would be about £200, so that is why I am thinking about changing the recorder and was canvassing for thoughts on what I would expect to pay as it is just over 10 years old. After him formatting it last Sept it ran until July no probs. The frist formatting got it going for a week but the second one it lasted about 6 weeks so was overwriting ok.
  25. I have noticed a lot of people have ranks attached to their profile such as DIYer, Installer, Integrator, Dealer, etc.... I have been through the user control panel several times looking for the option to add DIYer to my profile, but do not see an option. How to?

    Will HD cameras work with D1 DVR

    No your recorder is over 13 years only ….. its an early dahua and only D1 you would have to check camera spec and see if standard analog is one of its formats ahd is a digital format along with cvi and tvi
