Okay, I bought 2 of these. I had some spare HD's sitting around, and I have a similar Security system out in my shop. (Lets me check to see if my shop cat is still around...)
So far, It's looking bad.
I've only unpacked 1 unit. First thing I did was put in a HD. While it came with HD screws, it did NOT come with screws to hold the case together.
Powered up and seemed to function, indicated no Video sources.
So I unpacked the cameras and hooked them up.
Now it says I have Video (Green R instead of Red X), but no video appears. All 4 panels are blank.
Guess I could go plug one of these cameras into my other system to see if the camera works, but I'd bet it does since this DVR says it has video. Just won't show it.
