    Hi …… this is a different description of your problem in first post Is it just one channel not showing a image

    1 camera port u/s

    Ok good that test says a lot If 7 and 8 work independently but drops out if use both channels and you have done the test with other cameras it rules out faulty camera and cabling ….. it also rules out the channel chip …. ( on some units either 2 or 4 ) outputs share the same chip so next test is recorder settings ….. if your recorder is over 5 years old you might have reached a limit analog cvi tvi ahd are formats and some older units had a limit on how many you could set to each …. but also needed auto switching cameras I would now look under camera settings on recorder and see if you have settings for tvi cvi ahd or cbs and start to alter those on early dahua you could left click bottom left of each camera and pick the formate

    looking for a wifi cctv camera

    $1000 for 1 camera …… wrong camera for the purpose
  7. Hi. It depends on the spec of your amcrest is it listed as poe. Is it a h265 camera as a lot of new cameras are factory set to h265 in which case you will need to connect it to your network first and go into menu and reset to h264 have you bought the camera new or used
  8. Hi yes it’s the same on most units These are streaming settings not recording settings that should not be affected no stream or substream will give you 5mp at 30 fps
  9. Hi. Your post is confusing 1-4 recording with no cameras connected ??? I think you just have a simple problem and it is drag and drop screen settings Using your mouse put 8 camera squares up and then put mouse over camera 5 hold left mouse button and drag 5 to 1 ……. 6 to 2 ….. 7 to 3 and the 8 to 4 this then puts your cameras back in order
