Surveillance Pro causing beeps

Post by geronimo »

I'm running the latest version on my Win10 desktop. When I boot up the program, I get three loud beeps, separated by a few seconds each. I get this every few minutes, even if I click on F11 or mute the speaker button in the upper right hand corner. It's annoying enough, but the real problem is that it continues even after I close Surveillance Pro. I have to reboot my computer to make it stop.

Anyone else having this issue? I've looked all through the setup screens and can't decipher any setting that might cause this. Any ideas?

Thanks.

If you don't use PC-NVR then you may want to turn that off so it don't auto Start up. Then the Beeps should be no longer. I am not sure why it goes more then 1 times as Mine only does it when first starts.. Outside of that maybe there is an issue with PC-NVR on your computer. Maybe there was older version and you installed new one without removing old one I am not sure again mine only Beeps the 3 times after a computer start up..

Thanks. Indeed, PC-NVR was running in the background. I don't know why or what it even is. I did not purposely start it, nor is it listed in the Startup group in Task Manager. Do I need PC-NVR to do Liveview in ASP? Or, can I just uninstall it from my computer.

What are the beeps for?

Well Personally I wouldn't uninstall it as it might be something you want to use in the future.. PC-NVR is part of ASP but isn't needed if all you want to do is View the cameras. To be honest when it is setup right and working it can record to your computer as another backup to your Recoding medium.. However if you don't want to use it I don't think it will care if it is un installed.. For me on one of my computers I have my PC-NVR setup to record in the event I have to reset or change out a HDD on my main NVR and in that system I have all my cameras that connect to my POE NVR setup to record. Before giving some of my hardware away I would just take a different NVR for backup turn on and it would pick up where the other one left off. So now with that gone I use PC-NVR as my backup recorder for my main NVR..

Thanks for your responses.

I've not been able to uninstall just the PC-NVR separate from the ASP. I go into Task Manager/Processes and End Task on both PC_NVR and Challenge. A few minutes later they are running again, even though I haven't booted up ASP or done anything pertaining to the cameras. The beeping is very annoying, three loud beeps every five minutes or so.

If no one else can come up with a solution, I guess I'll have to uninstall ASP. Maybe I can find an older version. It didn't do this on my previous computer with an older version installed. This is a new computer with a fresh ASP install.

If your Win10 is normal setup on the right hand side click the arrow to bring up all your hidden apps that are running in the background, then click on the PC-NVR then make sure that the AUTO RUN is clicked off.. If it is on click to Off and Save.. If that isn't an option might have to uninstall ASP and install again.. Then just make sure that it isn't setup for auto run...

What arrow from what screen in windows for hidden apps? I don't know how you got to that PC-NVR Setting screen.

On edit. Okay, I found that screen. It is not set to autorun. PC-NVR does boot up every time I run ASP. Is there some way I can prevent that? I have no use for PC-NVR, but do enjoy using ASP.

I resolved this by going into the Program Files/ASP/PC-NVR folder and renaming the PC-NVR .exe file. Now, when I boot up ASP, the PC-NVR program does not boot up also.

Thanks for your help Revo.
