I have a no name brand NVR, with 5 cameras installed. I am using an app on my phone called SuperLive PRO to view live and recorded video. I also use a monitor and mouse hooked up to the NVR. I can also use any ancient browser (since all modern ones do not support NPAPI) to view.
I'd like to use software to view on my PC rather than the interface on the NVR. I have no idea how to setup any of them. I have d/l a few (Blue Iris, SmartPSS, IP Camera Viewer, NVMS-1000) and no go for me. I have gone into the network setting on the NVR and can get a whole bunsh of information like the ethernet, internal ethernet, ports, etc, but don't know what to do with them. I am guessing it may possibly be port forwarding on my router (I use Orbi). I have no idea.
Is it possible, without knowing the brand of the NVR?

Hi @garth_angst

If you can figure out the OEM of the NVR that will help, as then you can more easily find the better options / instructions.

Try looking up the MAC address of the NVR on your router ( see devices attached to the router ), then search for the OEM of the MAC address...

OK, will do that now.

I also should mention that the NVR is connected via ethernet to my router, my PC is connected via ethernet to my router and all cameras are POE.

Mac address reported: TVT CO.,LTD, CHINA

ok, so I found the camera I have. They are also TVT; Titaniums to be exact. Not listed on Tiny Cam Pro. Any help?
