I've only had this for two days so these are just initial comments. So far the box appears to operate ok although there were some recording problems . Playback of recorded video would breakup and jump every 20 to 30 seconds. This happened regardless of the selected video resolution. Formatting as FAT32 or NTFS made no significant difference for the problem. The USB drive was an "Ultra 256G 3.0 SanDisk", which is rated at 100 MB/s. I switched to a Corsair 3.0 USB drive that I already had, and the recording problem went away. So specifying a 3.0 drive is apparently not an adequate description. I should be possible to state the actual performance required for a USB drive to work ok. Also I programmed two recording events after a few experiments. The first recording happened as scheduled. The second recording did not happen even though it had appeared on the scheduled list. Have not had time to try this again. Another thing to note is that the "included A/V" cables...
I bought one of these, and it came without the remote, which rendered it useless as a recorder since none of the recording buttons are included on the base unit. I had to contact RCA to get one, the seller would not provide a remote. RCA sent me a remote without charging me (thank you), but I am not pleased with the quality of this device's features.
First, the remote is flimsy, cheap & only works if you aim it inside a very narrow area directly at the device, I can't tell you how many times I've pressed the buttons & nothing happened. Also, sometimes there is a 5-10 second time delay between pressing the button & the device responding. I am not at all pleased with the quality/efficiency of this remote, or the fact that I cannot work the DVR without it or by using any generic remote, even an RCA generic remote. Second, the on-screen commands are small & not easy to understand, the instruction book was not very helpful, I've had to learn by trial & error. Third, I have...
It started out good as a recorder. I used used a 64GB flash drive 3.0 and all was well. Because of the lack of a GOOD USERS MANUAL it took a lot of reading and searching on line for help. I now have the problem that I can only seem to record once. The Daily and Weekly programing doesn't seem to work even though the events show up and say they are schedule to record on the list they don't. I have gone so far as completely reformatting the Flash Drive and they still don't record. I have totally deleted them and rescheduled to record Daily or Weekly and they record only one time. On a different note the remote control is insane? it is so small it hard to hold onto, the buttons are very close and the range is about 7 feet and your aim has to be perfect!! I can't recommend this to anyone!!!
