They pushed a firmware update to disable local recording and force you to use their monthly pay cloud service. I was able to get the downgraded firmware but this hard drive AUTO overwrite has always been a problem. Has anyone over gotten this to work without having to be on a monitor local to the DVR with monitor and keyboard? No, it’s not a power strip issue, yes I have formatted, yes the date and time are correct. It will record for a month and then stop because the drive is full. I’m about ready to rip this thing out, I’ll be sure to run over the DVR with my truck and put it on YouTube for all. I’ve installed several brands of security camera systems, this is the most horrible one I have ever seen.
