  • Auto-configured camera driver gives the NVR more specific information about the camera enabling better resolution and bandwidth control. If you choose the driver from Type drop-down list, the resolution information will be more generic and bandwidth control will not be as efficient.
  • There must be direct access to the network camera IP Address and Port from the NVR. Make sure any personal and hardware firewalls between them allow for bi-directional communications for this IP Address and Port.
