Question about Home Security
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.
