  1. I installed a new hard drive. a Seagate 400 Gig. And now I get lots of error messages when I start up my Geovision software. The way I installed the hard drive was I used they're software and transferred all the data from my old hard drive to my new hard drive. Problem is I did not remove my old drive for a few weeks. Now when I start the Geovision software. These are the messages I get. Detect Record Abnormal. Error Analyzing Results. Create new file failed- Stop monitoring and then run scandisk to verify your hard disk Integrity. Recycle Empty Disc space low (but it is not low) It was before I changed the drive. And the last error message says please check log location I have removed the software and reinstalled. Also removed and re installed the drivers. But I keep getting the same messages. Also under the time and date it says Invalid, And There is a beeping coming from in my computer. I think it is the Geovision card. I sure hope someone can help me. My Geo system is a mess. Thanks Dave

    Is This Geovision DVR System Adequate?

    My nephew is thinking about buying this system. What do you guy's think? Is it adequate? Will it handle direct draw overlay? I don't see how this guy can sale them so cheap. It seems to me a Geovision 800 card alone is going for around $499. http://www.ebay.com/itm/GeoVision-GV-800-16Ch-DVR-Surveillance-System-1TB-V8-4-IP-camera-support-/180757441775?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a15fbacef

    Is This Geovision DVR System Adequate?

    No it's not my add. And no offence taken. I see how them shysters try to sale there products on the forum all the time and I'm sure you and others are sick of it. I am extremely thankful for the time you and everyone else out here has taken to help me out over the years. " title="Applause" /> The guy admitted to my nephew this morning that it is a fake card but claimed it is running the newer software 8.3 I figured out they were fakes by looking over his reviews and seeing he used to sale 800 cards for $179. I see his stuff is all inferior junk and advised my nephew not to bite and he agreed. But a real Geovision card is not off the table.

    Is This Geovision DVR System Adequate?

    Is it true that only a real Geovision card will run the 8.4 software? Because this guy say's it is running Geovision 8.4 software.

    Is This Geovision DVR System Adequate?

    Do you guys think it is a real Geovision 800 card that can be removed and put in a better built system later. I see this person has 7 of these systems and others to choose from. I would think it is a real Geovision 800 card if it is running the 8.5 software. Right?
  6. I have sent three e-mails to Geovision requesting they send me the upgrade link for Geovision 8.5 and I have not gotten any response. This is the e-mail address I am using download@geovision.com.tw I always send my serial # when I send my request. It worked for the first few years but the last couple of years they don't respond. Has anyone else had problems getting them to respond lately?

    Geovision not responding to my email request for 8.5 upgrade

    I bought the card off Craigslist so I don't know if a local dealer would help. Matter of fact I don't think we have a local dealer. Geovision sent me the update link for about four years. But for the last two years I have sent a half dozen request and they do not acknowledge my request. I sent an email to their sales dept. and they said I would have to just keep trying but they could do nothing for me. Luckily a good caring person out here shared a copy with me. As far as I'm concerned Geovision does not support their product. They will sale their product to you but no support. That has been my experience with them. I do like their product. But I question if I would go with Geovision next time. I'm considering going with a Dahua/Qvis Apollo. Anyone know of another computer based DVR that is better or as good as Geovision. I here Dahua does make security cards but I did not have much luck finding them.
  8. Would you please tell me what Dell computer from the Dell.com site you would purchase for the GV-1480A 16 Channel? I was told by a Dell sales person not tech that the Inspirion 620 would be fine.

    Is this Geovision 800 card real or fake

    The guy admitted it is a fake. It was on CL for under 100
  11. Can you tell if it is real or fake. The guy that is selling it says there is not a serial number sticker on it. http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y206/Arockerdude/?action=view&current=IMG_7881.jpg http://s6.photobucket.com/albums/y206/Arockerdude/?action=view&current=IMG_7880.jpg

    I see they have the 8.5 full version software on ebay for $20 but I hate to pay for it I guess I would have the full version on disc which would be good.

    Building Four 16 Cam Systems

    Here is the situation as briefly as I can write it. My new employer owns four police impound yards/auto Salvage yards and would like me to build him a 16 cam system for each yard. He would like to view all four yards from the main yard and his home. He would also like to view all four yards on separate screens. I myself have a GV 800 8 cam system with 8 true day/night cameras. Four are Pelco CCC 1390's and four are Panasonic WV CP474's. I also have 2 microphones and a police scanner plugged into the system. I sure love my system. It has served me flawlessly for four years and has kept the neighborhood hoodlums in check to a point. It takes them a while to realize that I have the cameras. I have countless videos of the cars getting robbed etc. Anyway I owe you guys a big thanks, especially Rory. You guys are incredible. Thank you all very much! I seem to have my employer convinced that the Geovision system and the true day/night cams are worth the price tag they come with. The main yard is covered in what looks to be small and very large bullet cams with lots of large IR’s. Most just have initials like KMC or CMC something like that. The plan is to replace them with true day/night cams. The DVR looks to be pretty old and is not a computer based Geovision system so I believe it should be replaced. The problem is I am finding it difficult to find a Geovision DVR pre built with an 1120a card. I found a couple but they were very expensive. I’m thinking it would be cheaper to build my own computers and install the Geovision 1120a’s. My employer says he would like to order the computer from Dell. My questions are will the 1120a cards be adequate for the job? What Dell computer would you think is adequate? And is it possible for him to view all four yards on separate screens with this setup? We were looking at the Geovision control center on the Geovision site and were thinking it might be helpful for this installation. Also he would like a motion detection system that will phone him at home. I see that the Geovision system will send IM alerts but is there a way to set it up with some type of add on devise that will phone him at home? I really appreciate any input you guys may have.

    Were can I download Geovision 8.4?

    Were can I download Geovision 8.4? I have already Emailed Geovision the request for the download address but still have not gotten a response. I have already tried ezcctv and worldeyecam with no luck. Thanks Dave
  16. Will my Geovision 800 system with 8.4 software work on 64 Bit Windows? I want to switch from 32 Bit to 64 Bit thinking my computer will run better and faster. Your thoughts? Thanks Dave

    Will my Geovision 800 system 8.4 work on 64 Bit Windows?

    Thanks for the help. I tried to load Geovision on 64 bit Windows 7 and it was a no go. I tried the 64 bit driver that came with Geo 8.4 and it would not work for me. Lucky for me I purchased Windows 7 online at the MS store and was able to sign in to my account and download either the 32 or 64 bit version no extra charge. I use my computer for everything. Not just Geovision. Since I put Windows 7 on this computer things have run much, much better. Seems to me it would be a big help to have the extra memory with the 64 bit version. I was not aware most people use 32bit system with Geo. What if someone only had a 64 bit system and they were trying to run Geovision? Seems they would have to switch to 32 bit version.

    How to Merge Avi's?

    The crooks are going crazy in my neighborhood this Holiday Season. I am trying to combine (merge) AVI videos from one camera #4 for instance and than say camera #2 for the next frame. How is that done? Is there a manual online for version Geo 8.4? If I cannot figure it out I will download some software that well combine the AVI's for me. But I figure the 8.4 software should be able to do it some how. Also I am trying to figure out the best software to convert the AVI's so they can be viewed on a TV via DVD player. Thanks for the help. Dave

    Can't Play Back video after re running Geovision Software

    I'm thinking that the AVIS have been damaged from me moving them from one hard drive to another and maybe I am only moved AVIS and not some type of data files that were in the folders were the AVIS originally were. Does that make sense? The AVIS that don't work have no picture for there icons. The AVIS that do work have pictures of the video for there icons. Is there maybe some software that well repair Geovision AVIs?
  20. I was having problems backing up some video from my Geovision 800 system so I re ran the Geovision 8.2 software. Now I can not playback video that is dated from before I re ran the software. The Avi's. are in the right folder but they no longer playback. Don't know if this helps. But all the Icons for the Avis that wont playback do not have a picture and just say AVI. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem? Thanks Dave

    Geovision Dongle cord Extension Needed

    Can anyone tell me where to find a 4 foot Dongle extension cord for a Geovision 800 8 cam card? I want to move my camera cable connections to the garage on the other side of the wall because there just is not enough room behind my desk and there is too much tension on this small 8" inch cord that came with the card. Thanks Dave Ps What do you guys do for this situation?

    Geovision Dongle cord Extension Needed

    I see. Thanks for the info. I will make sure all the pins are there. I thought maybe the manufacture of the Geovision card would make an extension. But I can’t seem to find one. Thanks Dave
