  1. The .VVF file format is used by Speco Technologies for files created by their DVR products. I checked their website, but couldn't find viewer software.

    Honeywell Dome Camera Help

    Hi Bob, Are you using 24vac or 12vdc operation? For 12vdc, make sure you have the right polarity to avoid camera damage. I'm thinking that your power supply can not deliver enough power for the camera (3.5w) as this appears to happen to all 8 cameras. If you do not have the manual for these cameras see attached link. https://www.honeywellvideo.com/documents/HD3VC4_3InchDomeCameraQuickInstallGuide_EN.pdf

    CCTV > Scart > PC?

    Good work....that's what you want! You'll only need to interconnect the yellow (video) cable....the red and white are for audio....unless you have a camera with audio? Play around with the software to find the best combination of quality so that it doesn't task your computer too much.

    CCTV > Scart > PC?

    I would look for one of these external USB video capture cards for your computer which go for around £39.99 Connect an RCA yellow cable between this and the SCART card. Check your local audio visual store for cables.

    CCTV > Scart > PC?

    As a start you will probably need a SCART AV adaptor such as this if you want to record onto a PCI video card or a vcr. If you let us know where you are located, then perhaps one of the other readers can direct you to suppliers in your area. Based on your budget, you might be best suited with a VCR or DVD recorder depending on how long you want to record.....a day? a week?
  9. Cameras needed to be focused at night with the IR on. If you've changed the lens during the install you'll need to do this. Once this is done, the picture will be great during the day.

    How to set up varifocal lense?

    although the lense is rated for 4 mm, I've come across something similar where I had to sacrifice the focal length to say 4.2 mm, so that I had enough realestate to focus the lens.

    How to set up varifocal lense?

    do you have any 1/2 format lenses handy? the 2/3 may be giving you some distortion at the 4mm, although it should be fine....just a suggestion.

    How to set up varifocal lense?

    Sounds like camera/lens back focus issue. Robert....Can you slightly unscrew the lens from the camera mount? Don't know this camera, but is there a brass lens mount ring between camera and lens?

    the black screw at the back of the lens....twist counter clockwise slightly to loosen the screw....should be able to rotate rear ring now
