Question about Swann Communications DVR4-Alert Video Recorder

Open Question

DVR4-ALERT I set up the DVR4-ALERT to "EACH" mode for cameras and "MOTION DETECTION". It records well. When I watch the record in"QUAD" mode I can see all four channals. If during playback I switch to "FULL SCREEN" mode for example channal 1 (press button 1), I can watch it (first) in full screen, untill motion happens for example on channal 2, so if the record for channal 2 exists the DVR switches to "QUAD" mode during playback it self and I cannot copy the full screen record of channal 1 to DVD.

When it records in quad mode, you will not be able to hear the audio.You will need to choose manual or scheduled recording to get the video feed in full screen for audio to be recorded as well.

HOW DO I GET MOTION DETECTION TO WORK?


Are you sure the cameras are capable of motion sensing and make sure that you do not need an additional control cable to the camera to make that work.

It's a quad. It records all 4 cameras at the same time. You can display 1 cam at a time. If you play it back, you have to hit the buttong that displays the corresponding camera you want to review.

Dvr4-alert full screen playback


That's because this is a quad. It compresses all 4 video feeds into 1 file. When you play it back, it decompresses the video and shows you each camera. Playback through this unit is the only way to see 1 camera at a time. 
To be able to copy 1 camera shot to a DVD, this is what you need to do: You need to have a TV with Video in and Video out jacks.  Connect the Quad to the TV Video in jack and connect the TV Video out jack to your DVD Video in jack. Playback a single camera shot on the quad to the TV and hit record on your DVD. - The DVD will record whatever is shown on the TV.
