  1. My first suggestion would be to check the current capacity of the power supply for your cameras. Possibly your new cameras require more power to operate when the night time LED's light up. You many need to replace your current power supply or change to running only 2 cameras on your current supply and add another one for the other 2. Really don't want to condemn the Swann camera's although I do prefer Hikvision over them.
  2. Anyone recognize this old software? Sure that it was used with several manufacturers, but this screen shot is from an older Zmodo DVR. Believe it to be in the 9000 series. Would like to acquire a manual for one of my customers. Thanks Dennis
  3. Having an issue with an Alibi QVR3016H (Hikvision 16 channel TVI DVR). Have intermittent poor video on random channels. Never know if it's going to be one channel or more. Dark, out of sync video with "Blanking/Sync" bars. Reboot and they come back for awhile. Never know what channels will be affected. Then happens again. Reboot and they're back.

    Help with an old CCTV unit

    Love a great "gotcha"!
  5. Try this thread: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=39460
  6. If the DVR supports it, have you tried using the "PTZ" function?
  7. Following up with tomcctv's last comment/question. Did you replace the original DVR with a new one? Have run into this when the camera's are a different format than the DVR. Have also had an issue where the DVR fails and video is no longer processed. If the camera's are standard analog, then hook one of them up to a TV or monitor with a video (yellow) input jack and see what the response is there. If the camera's are of the HD analog type of SD/CVI/AHD or TVI, then the TV/monitor won't process the video. Give us more info as to the make/model of the camera's and DVR.
  8. You're going to have to help forum members with enough information, to be able to help you. (1) What make and model of DVR? (2) What web interface? (3) Is USB thumb drive compatible with the DVR? (4) To be able to remotely download, have you set you LAN (local network) address of the DVR in the router, if using port forwarding?
  9. How are you monitoring your initial DVR? VGA/PC? Are you sure that the DVR is set to PAL and not NTSC?
  10. Removed my post. Thought that this was a different model DVR.
  11. Forget the Cat5e and balun's and use RG59.

    account problem

    H264 doesn't mean anything except the kind of compression. When you purchased it, what was the model number that you ordered. What about the box that it came in? What does the "splash screen" say when it starts booting up? Is there an owners manual with a contact address of the manufacturer?

    HDCVI vs AHD

    I'm getting ready to switch to the TVI system as all I've researched, it's the best next to SDI. That said, I am currently using a 42" TV/Monitor on the AHD system and it looks pretty good.
