  1. Hi this still depends if windows based of Linux based ……. Most Linux based DVRs only store the recorded data on the hard drive …… will still run without hard drive fitted but no storage
  2. Hi it depends on your DVRs operating system …. In your case it sounds like an old windows based …. In this case settings are stored on the hard drive…….. hard drive is split in two known as a partition… one part master (for settings and operating software……. And other part is storage (recordings ) usually found on geovision or avermedia

    SuperLive plus

    Hi. Switch self adaptation off on your phone app …. Under local settings …… top left button. then go to a camera on your normal app screen …. At bottom you will see a square with a pic of an eye …. Click on that then click high definition then back to normal screen then again click the same box with eye in it and select super definition and that will then hold your settings other problems can be how your getting data to your recorder to router …. Is it direct cable or a Wi-Fi device

    POE cameras

    Hi not all recorders or switches have POE so a 12v power supply can be used instead

    Help with AXIS A8105-E

    Hi $40 it’s a good option …… keeps your camera recording to the SD card …. So also a good backup option while no power

    Help with AXIS A8105-E

    Hi this will have nothing to do with vms many cameras that go to default are not the settings you need …. I am surprised for that money the axis has no battery backup i had a problem like yours on another brand of camera …… no volume or home save on a ptz depending on the time your camera is down a ups supply might be a better option for you and not for a lot of money this is similar to what I used https://powerwalker.com/product/10120450/

  12. Hi then it’s not compatible with your nvr it was first produced in 2012 I will PM you
  13. Hi …. I was up there last week ardrossan it looks like your using the old hik (2012) your new camera is not compatible as is out of the box ……. You will need to connecting to a computer and alter its settings out of the box it is h265 and 5mp you need to set to h264 and either 1080p or 720p for it to show on your nvr so in reality it’s pointless running a camera you have to downgrade the settings on is this for home or business use ?
  14. Hi can you check the nvr product number ??? does yours have a DVD hard drive fitted ? we’re are you based
