    When I am recording just motion on my NVR4208-8P-4KS2, it always misses the 1st several seconds. There is a setting in the camera - event/video detection/record delay that appears to have a minimum value of 10sec. Is that related?

    Is it not possible to record immediately, or even a few seconds before like some other options

    You could set the "Anti-Dither" to 0 if you want it to immediately record.

    Did this solve your problem? That's not what I thought Anti-Dither did.

    Not completely, there is still a delay. I had the anti-dither set to 1 sec. Just changed it to 0.5

    I will admit that I have not spent much time changing settings for sensitivity and threshold. I don't want too many false alarms and had the S set at 60 and T at 30. I just now changed S to 40. to maybe improve things.


    From the interwebs... Sort of contradictory.

    I do not know about the NVR , but in BI you can set the recording to start N seconds before the event. There may be a setting in the NVR to do this.
