  1. Ok I think I figured it out. I changed the Bit Rate Type from CBR to VBR and upped the Quality to 6(Best) and I Frame Interval to 2 seconds.
  2. I am seeing the shifting if I am just viewing and in recordings. I don't see a change if there is motion or not. It is constant.
  3. Not sure what to call this. But if you look at my youtube video, it is really noticeable in the grass. Pick 1080 in youtube to see it clearer. The video is changing each second. My dvr is the Dahua XVR5116H. I don't know what to look for or change. (4) Dahua XVR - YouTube
  4. I just received this dvr Tuesday and it was running fine with the Western Digital 3TB purple drive for 24 hours. This drive had worked fine in my old Dahua for 8 years. Now its alarming and shows a warning for health. I have formatted and even tried another drive. I even did a factory reset of the dvr. Getting close to getting my money back or upgrading.
  5. What can I do to let me get access to my dvr from anywhere with a android phone/tablet and completely refuse all other outside ip addresses? I have a Dynamic DNS now so I can always keep the same ip at home. I have reason to believe there is bots pounding my dvr trying to get in, which it finally refuses them but right when I want to get in I have to wait for it to timeout. This is frustrating when I want to see what is going on at that moment. I heard there is no use in blocking a range of addresses. Seems like there was a way to let me in only but what if I am at a new location like a hotel, or I would need a windows based laptop?
  6. Hallelujah, you da man!!!!! Thank you so much.
  7. Well I tried every possible thing I could in the matrix screen. Still not showing the cameras when logged out.
  8. Before the upgrade I could go to the tv's hdmi input that the dvr is on and all of the cameras was displaying. Not all I get is black screens for all cameras, unless I log in. All my admin options are checked.
  9. 111 views and not a single idea how to fix this?
  10. I updated my HCVR7416L firmware last night and now I am not seeing any video thru the hdmi to the tv, unless I log in. Each camera shows a red padlock too. Is this part of the security? If it is now I cannot view whats outside when I am sitting on the couch.

    So what do you think you need for a roll of the siamese cable? Im in NC.
  12. You have the remote access for $20 a year? I found this list, but dated. http://dnslookup.me/dynamic-dns/
  13. Usually once or twice a year Charter changes my ip and I have to change my addresses at work and laptops/tablet so I can view my cameras. I suppose sometimes its due to power outage. Is there anything I can do to keep a fixed ip for at least the dvr? Thanks.
