I’m unable to access my new NVR (NVR-PRE16M-P) locally via the TechProSS Lite App.  LAN IP is static so I know it’s correct but I’m not sure about the port number to use. The only ports available under the NVR menu are HTTP (80), HTTPS (443), Server (8000), and RTSP (554). On my other DVR I use port 37777 which is listed as the TCP port.  I have no issues accessing the NVR via IE. Any suggestions?

The Prime series uses a different app called Guarding Expert.

I was able to get the DVR to connect using the Guarding Export app.

I have a few more questions about this NVR.  When connecting the 2MP IP Cam’s (IPID-TP2MP50L2812-W) to the NVR, I noticed that I can connect using protocol ONVIF or IPCAM.  Does it matter which protocol I use? Also, when logging directly into the IP camera I can set the Video settings up to the max of the camera. However, the DVR has Video Coding settings as well that can be changed. Should the camera settings be maxed out and then the DVR settings scaled back if I don’t want the full 30 FPS and reduced Bitrate?  Or does it not matter what is set directly on the camera since the DVR settings will override the camera settings?

By default the port that needs to be opened for the app to work is 8000. 

As for the protocol you need to use onvif. You want to configure camera image settings from the camera. You will have the greatest control there. Once the camera is added to NVR it will use the settings it agrees with on the onvif protocol from camera. At that point the nvr will control the camera, but not every feature. If the IPCAM works that may give you more control of camera through NVR. As these devices come from different factories we use ONVIF because it is a common communication type between devices.  I have never tried the IPCAM protocol, so I not sure it would even work that way.  

From what I see on specs for the NVR you should be able to leave FPS at 30(maxed). The bit rate I would set at 2000= 2mb. Test it see how it works for you. If it is stable you can up the bit rate to see if image improves. If it is not stable drop it by 500 and test till it is stable.
