So I downloaded the manual to read through while I wait for this NVR but had a question about initial set up. Can I set up the NVR without it being connected to a TV? Also Should I set up the cameras through their web page control panel or through the NVR only?

I've never used a NVR and this manual I downloaded is about 400 pages long. Cameras are IPC-HFW4231B-AS

Thanks

You might better use a monitor connected direct to the NVR for the first time setup. Once you have made your proper network settings THEN you can connect using a laptop or computer to make other adjustments. I like to log into every camera directly first to set passwords and make sure features are working and it powers up correctly.
