I have a swann view security system ,,and something not working cause it only says mode not supported ,,,,, how do you fix this


Have you tried a hammer? Kidding!!! Usually this is a conflict in resolution between the DVR and the TV. You may need to lower the resolution of the TV for the particular input you are using. You may have a 1080P TV and a 720P DVR. Once they match, the issue should be resolved.

DVR keeps rebooting after a few minutes


Hard drive failure. Open the case, unplug power wire from hard drive. Power on the system. If everything works except recording, then you have fried hard drive. Replace it, format it, and you are back to normal.

Good luck.
