Dvr4-alert full screen playback

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.

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.

No Files


You must use the unit to play back. You are supposed to connect directly to television or other type of monitor. I do beleive you might need a password or something to view recordings. I am not sure but i do beleive you cannot remove hard drive and connect to a pc to view files they have to be run through the units software. I hope this helps.
