Recently, I had upgraded from a "kit" Lorex system to one of those snazzy Dahua Pentabrid (X21A1E) DVRs, complete with Skyhawk hard drive. Over time, I have replaced some of the Lorex cameras with various other branded cameras (GW, Hikvision, etc.) All has gone well.
I recently purchased a Dahua camera with two array LEDs.
The issue I've been having is that whenever I go to view playback footage from that specific camera, the image is very dark and cuts in and out to the point where the video is useless. Eventually, the playback video just goes blank. However, when I go to view the live feed, the video is crisp, clear, and excellent as it should be.
At first I thought maybe the camera wasn't receiving enough power, but how am I able to view such a great picture on live feed but not able to see anything when I go to playback?
Appreciate anyone's insight!
