How can i rest a password on my truvision dvr30


The TVR 30 is shipped with one predefined user for the system administrator and
seven predefined standard users. The default system administrator logon uses admin
as the account name with a default password of 1234. You can modify the admin
password but not the admin user name. The seven predefined standard users are
labeled User1 to User7 with a default password of 4321 and level 4 access. The
administrator can customize the seven standard users and define their privileges.
Use the Users screen (shown in Figure 20 below) to manage users.
Note: When accessing the main menu for the first time, the system lets you pick
either an admin user or a regular user (User 4) by default. If you select User 4, enter
the initial default password of 4321.
