I have the HYBDVR-FE016480 DVR in place with 5 analog cameras that are working fine. I introduced one IP camera (IPOB-EL2MPIR50) a few weeks ago which worked fine up until a few days ago. I am able to access the camera directly by IP so I know it is powered on and working. I’ve added it to the DVR over and over in different ways using different ports, etc. but can not get it working with the DVR. Today I introduced a new camera (IPOD-EL2MPIR50) out of the box and am also unable to get it working with the DVR. I can connect directly to it so I know it is working just like the first camera. What could the issue be?
It seems that you need to add the cameras to the recorder.

The part that is very important is that the bir rate and FPS are set before adding the camera to the DVR. The Hybrid has some limitations on what you can set an IP camera to. For a 2MP camera you want to set bit rate to 4096 or lower and 11 FPS or lower. A 1MP cam set to 2048 bit rate and 14 FPS. Then go into remote device and add the cameras. Also the EL IP camera use the private protocol/manufacture. The LX and TP ip cameras use onvif. That video is a little dated as the TP and LX cameras require extra configuration before they work properly with a DVR/NVR hybrid. For EL cameras it still applies for.
