Two ways to adjust the DVR NVR monitor resolution

You can adjust the DVR NVR monitor resolution in the Wizard Setup mode or by navigating to Setup >> System >> General >> Output Configuration.

While in ‘Wizard Setup’ mode, choose an output resolution that matches your monitor. The DVR should adjust the output resolution automatically to match the best resolution of your monitor at the system startup.

Please note that some legacy monitors could fail to communicate their acceptable resolution. In this case, please manually plug the video surveillance DVR into a newer monitor and change the resolution to the lowest setting, then save and plug the older monitor back to see if it’s supported.

After completing the Start Wizard, you can further adjust the Display Output Resolution using the following Menu Path: Setup – System – General – Output Configuration.

Select the output resolution suitable for your TV/Monitor. 1080P(1920 x 1080) will suit most monitors. If your DVR supports 4K output resolution, you can select either 2K (2560 x 1440) or 4K (3840 x 2160) to take advantage of the higher resolution that your 4K TV provides.
