Samsung shr-1040 playback is blocky

Playback is blocky is there a fix for this or am I out of luck. We use 2 of them and would really hate to have to trash them. We use the camera imputs and the real time is great but playback in single sreen is really blocky and is really hard to see anything. Or can there be a video card update. Thanks

    lots of small blocks, seems like pixelation of some sort. I have been working on the problem a little but have not gotten anywhere. I am thinking of running the dvr in 1 screen mode and getting a multiplexer, but then I would have a problem with individual playback.

  • nutsmoney3 Feb 16, 2009

    ok thank you for the help, but the playback is blocky in 1 screen mode. I use the cameras alot in night vision mode so that might be the problem.

    Anyway the blocky picture I can deal with I guess, if you think of anything else let me know

  • nutsmoney3 Mar 26, 2009

    We have taken all of that in consideration. How about this...is there a way to turn off the compression? Then it would just be a glorified vcr but that would be great.

  • nutsmoney3 Jun 03, 2009

    ok do you have suggestions on what type of unit would be best. A 4 channel unit or 8 would be great!

  • nutsmoney3 Aug 05, 2009

    New new units could you point me in the right direction?

    There is no video card, it's just a fancy quad.


    Is the blocky picture on playback in single screen mode happening on all cameras, or just one of them? 


    1. If it's just on 1 camera, then change up the camera inputs in the back (move cam 1 to port 2 and cam 2 to port 1, and so on). Does the blocky picture move with the camera? If it does, then check the connections of that camera (both at the camera and the input on the unit). Remember to check your connections one at a time so you can tell when you hit a bad connection. 


    2. If it's on all of them when you play each camera back in single cam mode, Then we move on to another issue. Do you have both units running? Is it happening with both units? 


    This is trial and error time, let me know how it's going and I'll stay with you till we get it right.

    Please describe "blocky". Are they large blocks, lots of small blocks, or are the blocks scattered?

Sorry, but there is no way to turn off the compression. That is the just the way a quad works. It compresses the 4 video signals to 1 channel. The only way to get around it is to buy a 4 channel unit. 1 channel per camera.

Connecting the recorder to the security system


If you are hooking your cameras into the SMO-151qn then you can use the pigtail cable to connect to the Shr-1040. Make sure the video out from the SMO-151qn goes into the video in of the Shr-1040. If there is a choice use CH1. On the Shr-1040 hold down the mode button and press CH2 for about 10 seconds. The Shr-1040 should reboot. Once it comes up press the record button. After recording for a feww minutes stop the recording. On the SMO-151qn press the button on the front Live/Vcr. You should see the screen from your Shr-1040. IF you hit play you should see what you recorded. Good Luck!
