    LTS (Hikvision) NVR beeping won't stop

    Would you mind giving some more detail? 1: make and model of failed drive? 2: was this the only drive in the unit, or multiples? 3: if multiples, is hard drive sleeping enabled? I’m just curious to know

    New firmware for AU NVR (DS-7608NI-I2/8P)

    Not sure what you mean by “what I’m looking at”… it’s on the global site, says it’s .006 and after I installed it, my NVR reports it as .006 I never had .005 I’m coming from 4.50 I like the web interface changes. It looks more like the local interface.

    No motion/event markers on playback

    Yes... if you enable line crossing... and you mention "no NVR" does this mean you are recording to an internal SD card?

    How do the NVR's work with two hard drives?

    Yes, it extends your storage capacity. Another huge benefit to using more than one drive, is the feature that lets the drives sleep! Meaning any drives that are not being written to will stop spinning. This greatly increases drive life.

    Hikvision DS-7608NI-I2/8P firmware v4.50.000 build 210125 can't add more than one camera to a single port

    are you assigning an IP address to the cameras and then "manually" adding them in the NVR?

    Conflict with two Cameras connected to Hikvison NVR POE ports.

    have you tried assigning IP's to the cameras and changing the camera setup in NVR to manual? I do this with all my installs. I've also never had an issue with multiple cameras in one port!

    Help me please! Chinese NVR Hikvision DS-7832N-K2 Mobile Viewing Concern

    So try searching for it by serial number on the hik-connect server. If you find it then it is online.

    Image cycles from clear to blurry about every two seconds. DS-2CD2041G1

    Yes, you are the “original poster” OP is a common way to address you in a web forum when a thread is full of responders. That way there’s no confusion about who I’m addressing. The reason I ask about the NVR is the fact that you said your issue occurs when motion is enabled, and when motion is...

    Abnormal Shutdown Help

    Try changing the video quality to high and see if it remains stable. That’s the setting that would bug me the most of the 3 you listed. Also, my supplier insists on always performing a factory reset after a FW upgrade. You could try that as well

    Remote Playback - extremely slow

    Which app are you using?

    Remote Playback - extremely slow

    I don’t think we have ruled out bandwidth yet. You need to confirm which stream you are looking at in playback

    Remote Playback - extremely slow

    It sounds like a bandwidth issue. When you say “live view” works, your not specifying main stream or sub stream. By default the NVR records the main stream which means when viewing the footage your viewing the main stream (higher bitrate)

    HKvision DS 7608 - adding 4th camera?

    The length of the cable is not a problem. I tested a full 500’ roll of cable and it worked fine. I agree with others that you may not have used the correct conductor order. It’s more than just matching each end. The order is critical.

    WD Purple Questions

    What’s wrong with 2 drives? I think that there is a long term advantage to using 2 drives. If you use only one, it is always spinning, and always writing. If you have two, they will take turns sleeping while the other one is used. Also, if one failed, the other is still recording until you get...

    LaView NVR to Hikvision Firmware? Is it worth the Trouble?

    Why do you think that Hikvision doesn’t work with Gmail? I’ve been using Gmail on Hikvision NVR’s for years.

    HIK NVR keeps dying. Are there alternatives?

    I also agree that it sounds like the hard drive. Do you know which drive is being used in the NVR? Can you open it and check?

    What is the difference between Hikvision NVR DS-7716NI-I4/16P and DS-7716NI-I4/16P(B) ?

    The “B” is a newer revision. I know that it has a second HDMI output, but I think there is a couple more differences but can’t remember

    Can view camera live with Hikconnect but not playback

    Changing the sub stream isn’t going to help you. (Unless you set your NVR to record the sub stream) when viewing live, your probably looking at the sub stream. When playing back, your trying to stream the main stream. It could be a bandwidth issue

    Hikvision stops supporting HikConnect via WiFi on some cameras

    Hikvision isn’t marketed to those users. It’s meant to be professionally installed, and managed by an NVR

    Hikvision ip camera to two nvr

    Model numbers of your NVR’s would help... if the second one is an I series, then it’s really easy. On the second NVR, (8 channel) go into camera setup and setup like you normally would except you use the IP address of the first NVR as the cameras address, and the user/password of the NVR. When...

    Hikvison Camera Recording in both NAS and NVR

    Ok. The setup will be the same. You can find a tutorial on google how to prep the NAS. Then add the NAS as a network drive to the NVR. I believe the newer 4.0 NVR firmware will let you chose to record the sub stream to a particular drive.
