    Can DMSS synch multiple cams during playback?

    Has anyone been able to get the DMSS app to synch multiple cameras during playback? I need to review video from 3 cameras and it’s very frustrating because they each have their own timeline and I can’t get them to play in synch. If anyone has figured this out please let me know how to do it...

    Can you mix PAL and NTSC analog cams on a Dahua XVR recorder?

    I have a Dahua 16 channel analog XVR that currently has old D1 NTSC cams connected. I ordered some Dahua analog 1080 cams from Andy, which I assume will be PAL. Does anyone know if they will all work together? I’d like to know before I start to replace cameras. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone...

    Is it a bad idea to shuffle IP cams to different ports on the back of my NVR?

    Are there any issues with swapping my cameras to different ports to change the viewing order? At the console I can change the order and it stays, but the DMSS app displays them in linear order. I thought I read somewhere that it was a bad idea, but what can go wrong? I’m thinking just power...

    How to synch multiple cam playback on Dahua NVR?

    I can't believe this hasn't come up before, but I couldn't find it in the search. When playing back video from the NVR my cameras are out of synch. Once I find the specific event I'm interested in how do I synch all the other cameras so I'm watching the same time instance across all cameras...

    Mobile app for Dahua NVR besides iDMSS?

    Hey all, I was just wondering if anyone is using or has found a better mobile app than iDMSS to connect to a Dahua NVR via iPhone. Ideally the app would be configurable to monitor a subset of connected cameras with minimal clicks. If I could get iDMSS to launch a default view upon startup it...

    Tapatalk weirdness?

    I use Tapatalk to read this forum, and others and normally I cruise the “unread” items to see what’s been posted since my last visit. It seems that about 20% of the time, when I click on a topic to view, Tapatalk opens a different topic instead. Anyone else experience this?

    Are dome camera covers replaceable?

    Hello, I’m replacing an old cctv system in my business with a Dahua NVR and IP cameras. I’m stuck at the dome vs turret question. Yes, I’ve done the searches and know that generally turrets are better in almost all circumstances. But, in one indoor location i will have about a dozen ceiling...

    Anyone got a Dahua N52B2P NVR?

    Hello, I’m researching 8 channel Dahua NVRs and this model from the Pro Series looks pretty decent. I tried searching but the “N52B2P” string doesn’t show up at all. Is it possible that nobody on this forum is using this NVR? I’m trying to find a manual that I can review before buying, but the...
