    disk i/o error

    I had an Intellex originally for my home system. (It's now sitting in my basement collecting dust too.) As much as I liked it, it recorded in just under 2CIF resolution, had no mobile app and didn't email snapshots on alarms. I eventually replaced it with an American Dynamics TVR series recorder. If I was in your position, I'd probably just go for something new. To get yours working again, you'd need to install a new HDD and find the proper recovery discs for it.
  2. Power off the unit. Put a jumper on CON 30. Power it back on for one minute, then power it off. Remove the jumper and power it back on. That should reset the RS-485 and RS-232 baud rates, the administrator and supervisor passwords, the camera and preset settings, and the site number (back to 9).
  3. Default Site ID is 09, I believe. You change the number in the internal menu, so it's not something anyone is able to do with yours right now. I'll do a little looking. I know I had the procedure for resetting a MegaPower LT to factory defaults at one time.
  4. Is the keyboard set to the same site number as the MegaPower?
  5. You don't need a different email address, just a different SMTP server. I switched from Gmail's to my internet service provider's but still use my Gmail address as the destination.
  6. Gmail no longer supports SSL. You're going to have to use a different SMTP server.
  7. I'd try setting it to RS-232 mode, 9600 baud then. I'm not sure which mode the MegaPower defaults to.
  8. The communication settings on the MegaPower LT have to match those of the CC300 or they wont talk to each other. They may have reset when the fuse blew. I believe the default baud rate on the MegaPower for ADNet is 19200 and the default RS-232 setting is 9600, 8 bits, 1 stop, no parity. Unplug the keyboard cable for a moment. When you plug it back in, it should show you whether it's in RS-232 or RS485 mode and what the baud rate is. If it isn't one of the default values, you can try setting it to one of them. Unplug the keyboard and plug it back in. Press the Shift and Menu Escape buttons at the same time when it starts booting up. The display on the keyboard should say "Special Configuration". Press the rewind button. Select RS485 or RS232 using the 1 or 2 number buttons and then press enter. Use the 0 button to move through the baud rates until you get to the default value. Select it and let the keyboard boot up again. Hopefully that'll get you back in business.

    Sensormatic Speeddome 2000 Question

    The ones with the dual boards are older. They're actually not 2000's but the RA480 series, if I remember correctly. It's been a while since I've worked with them. They only use RS-422 protocol for communication so you'll need a SensorNet to RS-422 converter to be able to control them. The model number for it should be RCSN422.
  10. I couldn't get mine to work with smtp2go either. I ended up using my internet service provider's SMTP server.
  11. Gmail discontinued SSL support a while back. You'll have to use a different SMTP server.

    Odd text in OSD (Hikvision)

    That appears when you enable the Daylight Saving Time setting. It'll show an S during the summer months during and, when Daylight Saving Time ends, it'll change to W during the Winter months.
  13. I went through this same thing about a week ago with a Hikvision DVR. The hard drive was bad (still under warranty though). I put a new drive in, initialized it without a hitch and it's been running just fine since then.

    E-mail alerts

    Try turning on the "allow less secure apps" setting in your Gmail account. This was the issue with my parents (Hikvision) DVR. Email works fine now.

    Intellex dvms Dome Control

    If you want to use the on screen controls with no TouchTracker involved, you need one of these USB Control Modules. It plugs into the back of the Intellex and you connect your SensorNet cable to it. Then select the USB control module in the camera handler menu. If you end up going the ADTT16E route, you connect the TouchTracker to the back of the Intellex via the DB9 cable, like you've already done, and then select ADTT16E in the camera handler menu. That will give you dome control from both the TouchTracker and the onscreen display. In your original post you mentioned your SensorNet cables weren't plugged into anything. If you go the TouchTracker route, each end terminal of the five pin terminal block on the EIM gets one SensorNet wire. The middle three are for the power going into the EIM.
