  1. Hi. I would look at a hybrid system you can still use your existing cameras plus upgrade and add in time. avermedia cards and the pc software are no longer supported but just by using a hybrid your existing cameras will also give you a better image. Avermedia cards limited your cameras. wireless systems are not a good idea and don’t last. A hybrid system will also allow you to use ip cameras ........ you don’t need to get cables to them you just need a power supply at the location and that allows you to send the video down existing power cable hybrids are cheap now and allows you to use up to 5mp

    AVH1109 and DGH1109

    Hi. Most recorders are sold as 4 - 8 - 16 - 32 reading both specs they are only 8way recorders. also there is a little difference between both models you have listed ..... size of mp cameras you can use and the other difference is notifications. Avtech have two types of push notification..... push video and push alert. One sends notification without video the other sends video ........ which is a bit out of date to other manufacturers NVRs i am not a fan of a 3rd party involvement in a cctv system ...... using a cloud service in another country and the last few years it has not been good for avtech your moving up from a analog to HD mp cameras is your old system on coax or cat5 ? have you looked at any other make and also HD analog

    WWV-SF332 Alternative?

    Hi. Selling you discontinued cameras is a bad start. as for £2000 cost ... that would depend on the camera install .... distance of new cable and how installed ie conduit or groundwork. is this a private school ???? Your right local authority schools would not have that expense. as far as avigilon..... it is not a plug and play system and you will find that your system will have a system manager either school IT or school has a contract with the install company. either way the manager is the only person who can add cameras. yes avigilon system can run other makes of cameras cheaper than your Panasonic...... I don’t know what licence costs you have but I would ask the question why your install company is not using avigilon cameras....... there same price as your Panasonic But better and no charge for licence

    Strange flickering lines on the screen

    Hi. What type of cable have you used and the distance from camera to dvr. what size power supply are you using
  5. Hi. You are going to have compatibility problems with the mix of equipment you are using. set all your cameras to 1080p as your nvr can’t run with the mix of 3mp and 4mp cameras also your new ptz has to be set to h264 ..... for your recorder as it will not run smooth on h265 which is what your ptz camera is factory set to from new also are you running the ptz as Poe or separate power supply. a 7 year old nvr has limits and your pushing it too hard
  6. Hi. Check your log on your router .... then check the ip address the same time you have the problem xmeye monitors your system from China and that slows down your system cleaning your connections won’t change your local IP address .... which means you have DHCP is always active in your dvr network settings which is not good your two images also shows that your network security is a problem your first shows your local ip as your second image shows it as yet it still allows you to login without you having to change anything ....... you should not of been able to of used your CMS you are not connecting to your dvr with your local ip ...... you are always connecting to xmeye cloud server which is China based and not a good idea
  7. Just looks like your up has changed... see what happens in a day or so. i see your unit uses Xmeye software are you using any other devices to view your system and who’s cms are you using
  8. Hi. Which cms are you using. also are you viewing your system from any other devices like phone or pad.

    School Football Field Camera System

    Hi. What is your budget. Broadcasting is going to be expensive just on its own ... network infrastructure to allow many people to watch a system to be security and broadcast are two completely different systems ptz is fine for security but not to follow player and ball running down a pitch A standard ptz can’t keep up. the closest type of system would be a high MP camera with E-ptz and you would only need 4 cameras for the whole system. but you need a good system

    Protect hdd

    Hi there is nothing wrong with your hard drive. It sounds like you don’t have overwrite enabled so when your hard drive is full it will beep and no longer display ... this is to protect the data on drive. Enable overwrite and it will delete old for new data
