    What does pressing Format on a NAS NetHDD do?

    It's a NAS set up in a 77 series NVR, it only supports NFS. It seems to dump all cameras footage in a single directory.

    How to make sure no footage is deleted (DS-7716NI-14B)

    So there are no retention settings. Seem to remember a setting in storage somewhere (days) but can't find it.

    Looking for Linux NVR software

    We got a Hickvivion NVR (DS-7716NI-14B) From spyCameraCCTV and was told we could backup using FTP, which was a lie. I am therefore looking for an alternative. We are using it to record performances at a festival. We are using around 10 cameras (but may go to 15/20 next year). The NVR worked...

    How to make sure no footage is deleted (DS-7716NI-14B)

    I have a DS-7716NI-14B with the footage. How do I make sure none of the footage is ever deleted (it was used at a festival to record performances and the cameras are now disconected).

    What does pressing Format on a NAS NetHDD do?

    @rompik do they just start backing up stuff from when NAS setup or will it in time backup everything? also the filenames look very cryptic, cant work out what files are for what camera and what day.

    Remote Backup not working to network drive

    Interesting. Still think this must be deliberate. If the software is properly written network drives and real drives look the same to windows. Ive never found a piece of software that has this problem. Why they allow the software to be set up with a network drive is also a mystery. Also my...

    What does pressing Format on a NAS NetHDD do?

    OK, got it working, maybe... I added the NASandformated it. It took a while and put a load of MP4 files on the NAS. But non of them actually play and mediainfo does not indicate they are video files. what are they and how can I use them? Ben

    What does pressing Format on a NAS NetHDD do?

    Does it delete everything from it? Also once formatted can I access the NAS share from other computers on the network or is it creating some type of proprietory filesystem? Lastly, once it is initilised does all footage then get automatically save to it? The NetHDD is setup on the NVR and I...

    Remote Backup not working to network drive

    Our supplier will not confirm if it should work or not, they have been 'investigating' or a cope fo days. If the software does not backup to network drives this would require hickvivion to deliberately add code to stop this. To a program, a network drive and a local drive look the same.

    Remote Backup not working to network drive

    I realize Remote Backup is to backup from NVR (i.e. the remote bit is the NVR) but where it backups to should not matter as long as it is a drive the computer running it has access to it. The network drive is a window shared drive (actually using samba running on a Linux box). The computer has...

    Motion Detection, do I set via camera or NVR interface.

    From what I can gather I set storage in NVR (to say when I want to record) but the NVR seems to have reduced functionality of motion (i.e. no-expert). Can I set storage/motion in NVR and set the expert parameters in the camera?

    Configuration Audion/Video, change on camera or NVR

    I know, but the event is 24/7 and it will not record while rebooting. No biggie, don't really care as I can do everything via camera interface.

    Configuration Audion/Video, change on camera or NVR

    Real shame. We are constantly tweaking settings as we are using them to record a few stages at a festival in Panama. The NVR is in a sealed air-conditioned server cabinet (sue to heat and high humidity here). So don't want to risk a reboot;(. Shame the software is so flaky.

    Configuration Audion/Video, change on camera or NVR

    There are fairly similar configuration pages on the NVR and Camera for the above and I am trying to work out which I should be using. There is no audio tab on the NVR so I tend to change the Audio/Video and Image settings on the NVR but the relationship seems a bit random. For example, if I...

    Swapping Camera

    They are not connected directly to the NVR. The network has 5 PoE switches that the cameras are connected to.

    Swapping Camera

    Hi, I use Hikvisoin NVR and IP cameras. If I change the camera to one configured with the same IP will it record as though it was the same camera (or will it create a new camera in the playback section)? I could also call it the same camera name?

    New to all this, camera offline

    Thanks, SADP did the trick but starting with DHCP seems the way to go.
