I then tried it with the NVR but it refused it.
Was the NVR purchased from a Hikvision 'authorised dealer'?
If so - you could try requesting a reset code from their tech support.
Check out the 'forgot password' link when SADP shows the NVR details : SADP Tool

If that isn't possible - using the Hikvision tftp updater to re-apply the same or similar version of firmware will reset the NVR to default settings.
The tool and instructions here : TFTPServ
A selection of firmware here (though your quoted version isn't listed) :

Was purchased through Aliexpress so I am unsure if they are an authorised seller.

I was attempting to use SADP as part of the recovery procedure, hence the 2022 and 2015 errors. Might find out who I bought it off and try to contact them.

If I can remember my unlock pattern I might have some luck. Haven't had a chance today due to working away from home so I'll have a go when I get back.

This is what happens you have something installed for over 2 years and haven't had to use it for anything since then. Should have written the password on the bottom of the NVR or something.

No, they are not.

OK, I'd assumed that was from the reset tool.

But unfortunately even if you do - it doesn't allow you to set / change the admin password, or reset to defaults.

Should have written the password on the bottom of the NVR or something.
The newer firmware, which you should be able to update through after you've regained access, assuming it's an 'updatable' model, has some very useful self-service password reset facilities. Some security Q&As, plus a 'GUID export file' facility.

The Hikvision tftp updater method is easy enough, and should work OK with that model.
If it had PoE ports, a 'trojan horse' camera could have been used to extract the NVR password.

I've been trying to use this tool to reset my LTD8316T-FT (which apparently is a rebranded Hikvision)

Serial is 1620151027AAWRxxxxxxxxxWCVU

I tried to generate codes using

LTD8316T-FT1620151027AAWRxxxxxxxxxWCVU
FT1620151027AAWRxxxxxxxxxWCVU
1620151027AAWRxxxxxxxxxWCVU
20151027AAWRxxxxxxxxxWCVU

It just says incorrect code for each one I try. I know the date is correct because the reset dialog at the terminal actually displays the date (not the serial), and it's correct (20191001).

Software version is v3.1.7 build 160418
DSP version is v5.0 build 160413

Any ideas?

Forgot to update but I managed to jag the pattern unlock and was able to view the password to the one camera I hadn't connected or changed the password yet. So now I have my password!!
