Make sure you have setup the patrol points where the camera is supposed to patrol. You can test this from Setup.

Also, try to set a small move speed as I find that the image is very blurred to be of much use if the camera moves at the default speed.

Logik recorder - error message - cannot schedule recording, there is already a timer at the same time on this channel. turned the box off at the wall & retuned. Any suggestions? Thank you. x


check programmed recordings you will have a clash possibly in time and date on another channel. If the dvd records two channels at once normally check if it has two channels already set up at the same time to record i the scheduled recordings.
you may have two different channel positions that are the same tv station and have set up two different channels to record the same show. and then you may be trying to record another different channel at the same time. check and delete extra channel schedule.

Another way to have this is as an example say programmed record at channel nine f0r show 1 at 7:30 to 8.35 day xyz and then you set up show 2 to record at channel nine say from 8:30 to 9.35.day xyz this will use two time frames during the overlap from 8:30 to 8:35 on day xyz and if you decide to record a third show you can't between the overlap time frame

How can I record a movie that has started already for a future date?


You have lots of options: Go to the station or movie carriers website and stream the video online, or use a DVR device to record it. Or as a last option, put your digital camera on a tripod in front of TV and record it and watch it later.

Hi Doug,
You are right in identifying the cause of the pre-mature shut-down of the camera during video recording. Battery saving features (auto-shut down) detect the camera as idle while you are recording. you could do two things to avoid this;
1. A short term practice is to manipulate the camera to stay on by using the zoom button, taking a snap-shot or anything like that from time-to-time, before the 2 minutes is up. This will keep the camera awake long enough for you to record a good length of video.
2. The second and permanent option is to program the camera - just as you mentioned. You can do that by opening the menu and under camera setting , scroll down till you find the auto-power save. Change the time to your preference

Please note: You have to switch off your camera as soon as practicable while the auto-switch-off time is set at a bigger value to conserve the battery. otherwise the battery will be drained quicker than you imagine.

I hope this helps.

How can I delete data from the hard drive of 'first alert' camera surveillance DVR?


Surveillance DVRs write over the oldest data when the hard drive needs more space.

You do not need to manage that manually. It is all handled automatically by the operating system of the DVR.

Are you sure the cameras are capable of motion sensing and make sure that you do not need an additional control cable to the camera to make that work.

Bauhn Manual for APVR-9650T


http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2211037


Quoting from above:

Bauhn 1TB PVR
model APVR-9650T
a REVIEW

Spent a couple of hours with this PVR, comparing it with an earlier model Bauhn 1TB PVR (AS-PVR1000R, 2011).
Bought on sale Wednesday, $199.
[Only commented on differences between models. Have previously reviewed the older model - which still is a reasonably good PVR.]
Summary: not bad, some good features in a budget PVR, and a couple of annoying issues that weren't in older models (which should be easy to fix in firmware). Works well, responsive remote, although I prefer the button press of earlier model.
But product quality control is worryingly patchy. Bought 2 units, 1 was dead out of box!! Confirms my advice to buy 2 to get 1 that works well. (On power up with good broadcast signal, TV displayed Bauhn logo for few seconds, then blank screen, sound of HDD, and never advanced past "----" on PVR. Tried many times on different video outputs & TVs.)
I'll probably be returning this PVR within 60 days as the few annoying aspects outweigh the added features for my needs, over my older BAUHN PVR.
Features:
Series Record:
Records all programs with that title on that network. (Still assessing if SERIES RECORDs program on more than 1 network - e.g. records Simpsons on 10 & 11, but does it SERIES RECORD Mythbusters on SBS, as well as 7Mate?)
Good if you are away from PVR as it changes recording times to latest EPG (as long as broadcast sticks to EPG times), if program schedule frequently changes, and does not record if program is dropped from schedule.
(I have returned from overseas to find what I had set to record was not what was recorded as the program line-up had changed. SERIES RECORD should solve that.)
But... takes up many available recording schedules including ones you may not want recorded (PVR has maximum of 50 TIMER schedules, so for example SERIES RECORD "QI" on ABC1 - with 13 episodes/wk, would occupy over ¼ of available schedules!).
Also you cannot pad these recordings - adding a few minutes before/ after in case program starts early/ ends late. Changed recording time may conflict with other recording schedules meaning program may not record (check by EPG Search). Takes some getting used to to ensure consistent recordings.
Setting up standard weekly etc TIMERS may be preferable & more predictable.
EPG Search:
Searches for all programs by title within 7 day EPG, on all channels. Shows & allows setup of recording schedule, and if there are conflicts between SERIES RECORD & recordings, to set Priority.
Scheduled Recordings from EPG:
Settings for recording Once, Daily, Weekly, Weekday/ Weekend.
You can pad scheduled EPG recording times by up to only 10 minutes, in case program airs early/late.
(The older 1000 model can pad up to many hours - e.g. to record multiple consecutive shows on 1 recording, and the recording date can be changed to skip that particular recording. You can manually set up recordings to achieve this on this PVR, but then lacks program name, which you can rename. An advantage if you are running out of schedule recording slots.)
Time Shift:
Up to 2 hours, which is adequate. Can set to always be on, so can pause/rewind live programs when you wish. (1000 model can be set to almost limitless Time Shift. Mine is set to 4 hours.)
Editing Recordings:
Editing would suggest removing unwanted sections, but this PVR simply marks sections of the recording for viewing, skipping the unwanted. The file remains the same size, and copying the file to another device leaves the original unedited recording.
Settings:
MENU-PVR Settings: (handy when setting up)
Set Time Shift length (30-120 min) + Time Shift Function (Disable / Enable)
Playback Start Position (Beginning of program / Continuing from where you were watching) Continuing is handy.
Auto Play Next Program (Disable - stops playing at end at end of recording / Enable to watch recording then next recording )
MENU-Settings:
Audio&Video Output Settings
(set to suit your TV etc)
Time (by State & Daylight Saving - otherwise EPG & recording time will be incorrect)
Channel List (press OK during live TV):
Can delete unwanted channels (which the 1000 model annoying could not).
Can set up 1 set of Favourite channels
External USB Storage:
2 USB (1 front, 1 rear) capable of accessing larger HDD (tried with 3TB) formatted as NTFS or FAT32. So quite useful, as I found on 1000 model.
Copying is painfully slow. On 1000 model, crashes occurred when storage for recordings was set to a USB device (MENU-PVR-PVR Setting-Recording Storage) - don't do it!
USB drives less than 16GB can't be formatted on PVR.
WARNING: If PVR freezes (too high load on processor like copying too much or Copying + Recording) while writing to external HDD, HDD may be corrupted when you are forced to unplug PVR from power! (Have had Seagate HDD totally corrupted twice with 1000 model - files cannot be recovered due to storage method). Best not to copy too much at time to HDD!
Networking: (Not assessed yet)
Via Ethernet cable. Can access recordings, photos, music on PC, and transfer to PC from PVR. Access is typically MUCH faster than to USB storage. But requires files to be in set folder, which may be unsuitable.
Media Player (Not assessed yet)
Photo & Music Players have been added . Playing MP4 files is not great.
Annoying aspects...
OSD can't be hidden when using Pause
Pausing live program, or recording leaves an information box on screen - there is no way to remove it. Pausing a recording is something I regularly do, to view details. The PAUSE bar includes the EDITING tools, making it larger than normal. As the on-screen-display covers nearly 20% of the screen, at the bottom, subtitles and information bars broadcast with the program can't be seen! You can only increase the Transparency, meaning you can see through the OSD (MENU-Settings-PVR Setting 1-60%). However, setting a high level of Transparency makes using any OSD difficult.
Slow boot time
It takes about 35 seconds to.power up from Standby to fully operational. While that is marginally faster than the older 1000 model, it is slow.
Slow navigation within EPG, Timer & Media Browser etc
There are no P+/P- (Page up/down) buttons as on 1000 model. Moving up/down a list to select between possibly hundreds of programs (recordings) is SO slow - moving 1 at a time instead of a page at a time. (Strangely the P+/P- can still be found in the onscreen keyboard when you Rename recordings or do an EPG Search. There it performs a keyboard shift function.)
Slow navigation within Recordings & Time Shift TV
FF/REW speed is a maximum of 32X, against 64X on 1000 model.
There is a very handy undocumented feature of FF/REW by holding down the right/left arrows - located around the circular OK button (while watching your time position on the progress bar). Handy for moving quickly to position in program or skipping ads. (I found this on the earlier 500 & 1000 models.) However it is SO much slower to FF/REW on this model.
Bright Standby light
As in the older model, the very bright blue light can be annoying, but easily fixed with a small piece of black electrical tape or similar.
PVRs take time to discover their flaws & features, so I'll keep exploring ;-)

Scheduled a timer recording of a program on a DVD+R and when I went to play it back all I got on the screen was noise and snow. I now realize that I used the wrong disc (should have used only DVD-R). ...


Hi,During timer recording adjustment you must have selected what ever you want to record..i.e: Tuner Channel , or ,Video1 input ,or Video 2 input etc..This problem is related with Source selection but not with - + type Disc..wrong disc will refuse to record at the beginning..

The noise and snow shows that your recorder was Recorded an unadjusted RF channel..thus no TV signal was available during recording ..
I assume that your DVD recorder has built in TV tuner in...To correct the problem,first you make an automatic Ch set up ,search the available channels either on the Cable (if you have ) or RF local channels thru Arial Antenna..
than you try to record again by carefully selecting ..you will record TV RF channels successfully. Or you can attach another video source to your Recorder thru the RCA cables on the back panel and by selecting the respective SOURCE in accordance withe cabling you have made than you will record the AV signals available on your Receiver..
If you need more help pls let me know for further advise.

Cannot Record using VHS


The question here would be one of two things. Obviously without probing further it would seem you're having an "unusual scheduled recording" issue. But, without further information it's difficult to tell.

For one, are you recording from straight signal (cable or antenna into the RF IN of the unit), or are you recording from a box (cable or satellite receiver or D/A converter, etc)?
Do your scheduled recordings record the first and not even pick-up the second, or do they record but only record static?

These are questions that will need to be answered before further assistance can be provided.

Should I use automatic or manual while recording?


Select RCA camcorders feature both an Automatic and a Manual recording mode. Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode. Focus, exposure, iris control, white balance, and the video light are controlled by the camcorder during Automatic recording. This mode is particularly handy for those times when you want to be able to just point the camera and record. The Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the elements above yourself, as well as many of the camcorder's special features including Animation and Time Lapse. Manual mode is also where you access the menus and set the clock. Make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode.

I can't start recording.


# You may not have turned on the camcorder to record properly. For camcorders that feature both Automatic and Manual recording, make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode. # Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode, while Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the camcorder's special features, including accessing the menus and setting the clock. # For many other camcorders, make sure the CAMERA/OFF/VCR switch is set to CAMERA. Make sure the Erase Protection tab is in the position that allows recording. If not, slide the tab. Some tapes have removable tabs. If the tab has been removed, simply cover the hole with adhesive tape or use another tape.
