Hi, 

I just purchased a new Sibell 16CH TVI/AHD/960H DVR to replace my old analog DVR. I hooked up all of the old cameras and it worked quite well.

Additionally, I purchased a new Sibell 2MB motorized bullet camera (HD-TVI/CVI/CCTV) to replace one of the old ones. I wanted a more clearer picture of my driveway and the ability to zoom in. I have quite some trouble to get this camera to work properly

While the daylight picture is still o.k., but not as good as I expected from a 2MP camera, the nightlight is a total blur. Worse the the old camera it replaced. It does not look like the autofocus works.

I cannot remotely control the lens to zoom or focus. The “lens control” option on the DVR is greyed out and not accessible. The PTZ option is accessible, but it does not operate the lens. How do I have to set the DVR up to control the lens?

The camera manual (2 pages) is of little help. The video output is set to TVI on the camera and DVR (per manual).

Lastly, how do I access the OSD of the camera through the DVR? I was able to access it using the toggle at the camera and there are probably 40 parameters to set.

Is there a manual which explains all of these options and their impact on the picture? As said, the camera manual is basically useless.

Thanks for the help.

Hi Marius, 

I am sorry to hear about the trouble you seem to be experiencing with the camera. Can you attach an image to your response of the current night time image? Are you sure you’re not simply seeing IR reflection? 

The “Lens Control” option you see is for IP cameras, for your camera you would simply use the Zoom Feature underneath the PTZ controls. However, from what I understand you’re saying that does not work. Which color BNC did you use on the pigtail of the camera, Yellow or White? Also, you say the camera is already set for TVI, did you set it this way or based on the manual we’re assuming it is this way from the factory? If you did not set it, please follow the instructions in the cameras guide on how to change the output mode and verify it is set for TVI.

Thanks for the quick reply:

It did not configure the PTZ options on the DVR yet. I don’t know which protocol, baud rate, etc to use.

I used the white BNC connector on the camera. The yellow one is a RSA type. I thought this would be for a wrist size display to check the camera in place.

I did set the camera to TVI using the toggle at the camera pigtail. Default was AHD, if I’m not mistaken. I changed the DVR setting under “Camera Signal” to TVI from default AUTO (TVI/AHD). It did not make a lot of difference on the picture quality, though.

There was another setting in the same menu on the DVR: Lite off/on. I could not find anything in the manual about this option.

I have a picture of the night image, but unable to add it into this post. 🙁 . I could email it.

Thanks for your help.

Hello,

 

You will not have to use the baud rate, etc when using HD over coaxial. That is only used if you are using RS 485 connections. 

The white BNC connector is for analog only output. This will not let you use the PTZ controls. You will want to use the yellow pig tail for the

HD output. Please let us know once you try this. Thanks!

Thanks will do today evening.

One more question:

Are the BNC channel inputs on the DVR paired? Somewhere I read (not sure if this is applicable to my DVR) that the inputs on a BNC channel pair , like 1+2 or 3+4, etc. have to be the same signal quality. If not the DVR will downscale it to the lower. So, should I put my HD camera on a separate input channel, not next to an analog signal?

Thanks!

As long as the channels match up in the “Camera Signal” you will not have to worry about any of that.

 

Thanks
