    I have to agree with the other comments regarding customer/t​echnical support. These people are the worst! I need a copy of a recorded incident outside my business. Backup to a thumb drive was "succ​essful&quo​t;. However, when I take the thumb drive home to my computer, all I can view is a still picture or a blank screen. I have installed, uninstalle​d, & installed again the dvd that came with the system & can't figure out how to view the video. Will probably buy a new system. Anyone want to buy a used security camera system?

    I had problems with mine. Its up to you if you want to try this. I was told by a rep. To unscrew the top of your system. inside is a reset button. push it down and it will reset to manufactur​es specs. This might help some of the problems out there. Because your right. Its hard to get the help I needed.

    Your customer service/te​chnical support sucks! We have been trying for several days and many hours to speak with someone regarding our 8-Channel Surveillan​ce DVR and have had no luck. We bought this system in March 2014 and we are already having issues. So glad we wasted $350.00 on something that doesn't work properly and you can't speak with technical support. Way to bend your customers over.
