CCTV has been a Hobby and Pasion of mine for many years. I have over 40 years of Electronics history and almost that long in CCTV.. My first CCTV recorder was a Reel to Reel, then Time Lapse VCR then DVRs in 2010.. I have tried to stay away from NVR's broke down and now I have 4 lol over 10 recorders
