Re: Can't use all 4 cameras!

1. When you access the NVR remotely, say using "Amcest Surveillance Pro" or using Internet Explorer, do you see all the cameras that you say don't show up in the console?
2. Can you Liveview all the cameras at once?

Re: IP4M-1051B encoding question

I have 3 suggestions: 1. For whatever reason, I haven't had much luck with H265 either. I started using H264, things were fine. I thought I'd save some disk space and go to H265. Everytime I exported a footage, I would get 0-byte files. So I reverted back to H264 and all is fine again. 2. Relatively...

Re: Very blurry

When you're typing your response in the "Full Editor", at the bottom there are 2 tabs "Options" and "Attachments". Click on "Attachments" and "Add Files". I have noticed when I access the cameras remotely whether through Internet Explorer, "Amcr...

Re: Very blurry

Yikes.
You're scaring me. I have that NVR and I just ordered a 4K camera to replace an older 2M camera. I haven't received the camera yet.
Can you show us some screenshots of some settings?
1. System - Display on the NVR
2. Camera - Video on the Camera.
What about the camera lens, is it clean?

Re: IP Camera Poor Bitrate

I have an older camera (IP2M-851B). I have it across a field hooked up to a barn. My router is in the main house near a window. The connection is rock solid--never drops. My highest resolution is 1080P. The other thing too is: if your WiFi signal is weak, and you're at a high resolution and high fra...

Re: NVR drops cameras connection

I have 6 POE cameras connected directly to a NV4108E. They never drop. I've had them connected that way now for over 1 year. Rock solid. I ran the cables and crimped them myself. Have you tried running a POE camera on a short cable (6ft - 15ft)? Let it run that way for a few days and see if the conn...

Re: IP Camera Poor Bitrate

I never had any issue with P2P.
Maybe someone from Amcrest can chime in.
By the way, which camera model are you working with?

Re: Any Reason Why I Can't Use an 8TB HD in the NV4108E-HS

I went against the grain and installed an 8TB in there. The NVR saw it and I formatted it. It's recording fine. I lost a few megabytes, as expected whenever I add a new HD. It happens to me on Windows PCs too. Nowadays with those huge Hard Drives, we lose quite a bit off the original amount. Anyway ...

Re: IP Camera Poor Bitrate

Remember in your environment there are countless things that can interfere with wireless signals. We've all heard them: microwave ovens, fluorescent lights, walls, other WiFis, motors, etc...
It won't be an easy thing to pinpoint. That's for sure.

Re: Bitrate Recommendation Chart

I think they are all very similar.
Since I'm using H.264, I came across this Hikvision bulletin as a reference.

Interestingly enough, I had them setup that way before I ever saw their chart.
Great minds think alike.
