the main mother board is tiny! Probably the reason it can only handle cif resolution.
They are said to use the same hardware, look at the link from my post a bit earlier. The link shows the same board layout, at least for the ports, and states it can record at D1 at a lower framerate. What annoys me is that it was advertised to record D1 and only records CIF.
For specs, the PCB was made by ShenZhen cookhangFa PCB and the batch number appears to be 94V-0.
The board has "2304B V1.1" silk screened on the front, no company branding.
Zmodo should post the firmware or at least the source code, as it is based on software licensed under GPL.
I have been sending one email a day to their tech support, no reply yet. I tried flashing with a firmware from a different company, that is using what I believe is the same board, but it won't let me. When I have time this weekend, I'll pull the heat sinks off of the chips and see what they are.
One more thing, please go to system info on the system and post what is there. Some users report D1 being an option. I have *NO* drop down menu to select CIF. You appear to have one. Zmodo probably has DVRs shipping with different firmwares. We just need to find out who the OEM is and see if we can get firmware from them.
