    Help Please

    thanks all for the info so these are the cameras I have upgraded to, Image Sensor 1/3 inch Color Sony High Resolution CCD Effective Pixels 768(H) x 494(V) Sensing Area 4~9mm Vari-Focal Lens Signal System NTSC Horizontal Resolution 550 TV Lines Minimum Illumination 0.0LUX (IR Lamps on) Shutter Speed 1/60 - 1/100,000sec S/N Ratio >48dB Video Output 1.0Vp-p, 75 Omega Power Requirement DC12V Power Consumption 2.5W IR Wavelength 850nm IR Distance 98.43 ft. (30) Dimensions (Approx.) height (3.5 in) diameter (4.75 in) I bought them from the Home Security Store, they are an improvement over the ones that cam with the package. These are the specs for the DVR, Model DVR-M2104U - Standalone DVR Operation System Linux Based Video Compression MPEG4 Video System NTSC/PAL Video Input / Output BNC4-Channel Input / 1-Channel Output Audio Input / Output RCA 1 -Channel Input / 1-Channel Output Display Frame Rate NTSC: 120 fps / PAL: 100 fps Display Resolution NTSC: 720 x 480 / PAL: 720 x 576 Recording Frame Rate NTSC: 60 fps / PAL: 50 fps Recording Resolution NTSC: 720 x 220 / PAL: 720 x 288 Record Mode Continuous / Scheduled / Motion Detection Display Mode Each, Quad, Auto-switch Playback Search Time & Date, Event List Simplex / Duplex /Triplex / Pentaplex Simplex Network RJ45 Net Protocol TCP/IP, DDNS Remote Access LAN or Internet Browsing HDD Interface SATA-100, Rack, support up to 750GB USB For PC Playback & Backup / USB2.0 Remote Control IR Remote Control Power Supply DC12V, 3A Dimension 250mm (D) x 235mm (W) x 38mm (H) As I am new to this area I am not sure what all this means, I have knowledge in Home theatre applications and I have always read that you equipment is only as good as the cables that connect it. Hopefully this is part of the issue, because it might be easier to fix at this time. Thanks in advance to all of you, Karl

    Help Please

    I bought a 4 camera package from cctv hot deals, (product name Zmodo), I do understand that it is a entry level package and I am already in the process of upgrading. I am doing new construction in my homes basement so as I am running wire I would like to know what I shoould run as wire for the video and power for the cameras. Next question can anybody tell me what to look for in a DVR, in the one I have the picture has snow on it and the color is out a bit, meaning the blacks sometime look green???? Thanks in advance
