Need help troubleshooting DVR skipping/possible replacement

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys/Gals :)

I need some troubleshooting help with my parents DVR occasionally skipping minutes in saved recordings. The DVR in question sadly is not  a very high quality one, being a cheap Xiongmai DVR that came with a combo package of 4 cameras.  

I have tried:

  • Reboot/restart/reset
  • Lowering the quality to D1 (Helped responsivity but still skips and fails to record)
  • Watching from TV/Using the included app/software
  • Checked all connections

The cameras themselves appear to work fine, since in the TV preview they work completely smoothly.

Oh, and the DVR model number is  A1004NS-C, Its an analog DVR with 4 BNC connectors to the cameras. We live in a PAL region if that happens to make any difference in signals. (Considering the DVR fails to work if i switch the mode to NTSC)

I really appreciate all responses, since this has caused a bit of a headache especially to my father :)
