How to Adjust DVR/NVR Output Resolution?

Applicable to: All Qsee DVR/NVR devices


Why Modify DVR/NVR Resolution?

  1. When your monitor has a lower resolution than the default output of the DVR/NVR, resulting in a black screen, you'll need to switch to a monitor with a higher resolution to make the necessary adjustments. After the adjustments are complete, you can reconnect to the original monitor. Alternatively, for convenience, you have the option to replace the original monitor with one of higher resolution.

  2. If your monitor has a higher resolution than the default DVR output, modifying the DVR/NVR output resolution can enhance image clarity.
