New cameras with cheap dvr

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I have to say, this is probably one of the best forums I have ever been on. Learned more in the past 2 days than in weeks of research.


I'm looking to upgrade my current 4 camera Lorex system ( I know, but needed something quick). It is an LH314 with H.264 compression and VGA resolution (640 x 480) per channel, 480 TVL. I would prefer to replace components in increments so it is not such a hit to the budget. Question is, if I replace the cameras with something better, can the dvr handle the input? I'm thinking of getting:



Total Pixels Number - 811(H) x 508(V) 410K

Effective Pixels Number - 768(H) x 494(V) 380K

Horizontal Resolution - 530 TV lines


Thanks for the help.

Yeah it will be able to "handle" it but please note that the highest resolution you will get out of the cameras if they are hooked up to the DVR is 640x480 due to the weakest link theory.
