    Help connecting DVR to TV

    Hi. Two ways of using your existing coax but nether way is cheap. HDMI modulator.......... this is the only method you can use for using tv antenna input hdmi over coax kit ........ hdmi from dvr to tv hdmi. But stay away from the cheap type or the tv image will be useless to watch both options will not give you control of your system.... view only. another option is to use no cable at all and for the same price if not cheaper than the modulator or hdmi kit is to use a apple box or android tv box ...... this is a good option as you will have control over cctv system ..... and the money spent also gives your smart tv more options
  21. We’re are you based ..... lorex is just another trading name for dahua
  22. Hi. You need to switch off the time on each camera and just use the nvr time display go into camera edit in menu and switch of OSD for all cameras
  23. Hi. Apart from the split screen are you able to go into menu? I have looked at the spec sheet for the JZTEK and it is only saying low mp. 720n / 960n /1080 can you disconnect all cameras switch off your unit connect 1 camera only to channel 1 then switch your unit back on XMeye units loose channels the higher the megapixel ..... 4 channel will only run 1 5mp 8 channel will only run 2 5mp cameras is your system on line

    Hi. Why are you going to antenna input ???? hdmi to sdi will not work for you
  25. Ok. But you can still isolate the equipment from the pole ... either with fibreglass over the bracket areas or using plastic or rubber spacing This would also be pointless. In fact in would make your problem worse..... not that you have a problem to start with. we have lots of PTZ cameras on poles all over the uk .... not one has been hit by lightning your building a self contained pole system .... nothing leaving the pole. So nothing will protect your camera or solar from direct hit using another pole with copper or brass strike ground carrier will only give lighting more area to hit being next to another pole but if you had a strike it would only go to ground and back up the other steel pole. you don’t need to waste money
