    CCTV now wants a password!

    Update !!! I misjudged Xenta, they did reply to my message, and I publicly apologise for doubting them! I was given a number to call (in Goole) and the person was very helpful. Whilst on the phone I accessed my log in page and there was a code number there (8 digits). I gave the number to the...

    CCTV now wants a password!

    Well the battery replacement and new hdd did no good! I have limited access via my iPad but have no ‘system access’ to allow configuration etc. Out of interest when I do try various random passwords it does suggest the password should be between 8-16 characters and should contain let’s and...

    CCTV now wants a password!

    Thanks sparky, as you can guess I was hoping it held other imputable info like passwords! I am sure you will be right. Battery goes back in today, if no result it is ‘bin bound’! The scrap of paper purporting to be ‘instructions’ says if the password is forgotten then contact the maker. I have...

    CCTV now wants a password!

    Just an update, all suggestions tried, including all default passwords suggested for various DVR’s on Google. No luck…I have now taken out the cmos battery for a longer period, may have been too brief first time? Also, despite my recordings appearing to be ok, I have taken out the hdd but am...

    CCTV now wants a password!

    Thanks Mottie, I did find a website with a selection of default passwords (inc 123456) for various systems but have not had a chance to test as yet. Regards S

    CCTV now wants a password!

    Thanks for that but it was the first thing I thought of. I actually have the original set up document which indicates the password field is left blank as default. I have always left it as a blank so not sure what has changed.

    CCTV now wants a password!

    Hi all I purchased a cheapo 4 channel, 2 camera cctv set up some years ago just to ‘test the concept’. It was more for wildlife watching than security. To be honest the camera quality and recording have been perfect for it’s intended usage. It was manufactured by Xenta. On setting up...

    Cancelling sky

    Thanks Winston, out of interest then, if your dish or LNB were faulty, is that a chargeable repair item? I assumed that all the kit was rented and all repairs covered by the rental agreement. Engineers or Installers, obviously I meant a person whatever their title is. And also, who is to say...

    Cancelling sky

    A thought? SkyQ is a rented service which I assume covers LNB, dish, cable and box(es). In theory then, if you cancel SkyQ, Sky 'could' legally remove all items? I am certain they would want the box posting back but would ignore other items? I do not, for one minute, think that Sky are going to...

    Vaillant ecoTEC + 831 - operating correctly?

    Thanks Gasguru. I think I have sorted my issues now. My last post was really to acknowledge that I had had a response from Bunny (some time ago...) but had not responded with thanks (due to being unaware of his response.) Any further readers please understand that I consider this thread closed...

    Vaillant ecoTEC + 831 - operating correctly?

    Apologies - better late than never. I got no indication there had been another reply after my last post so didn't see Bunny's - thanks for the reply Bunny.:!: A good further way down the line and with things working as expected I have pursued no further changes. Incidentally, I had a 'firing...

    LED/PIR security light trips RCD

    Thank you Taylortwocities for your excellent point, excellently made. I would not normally respond other than to say thank you but a bit of background may help? Firstly being a retired tradesman in the electrical industry I fully understand the need to keep our tradespeople in employment. I...

    LED/PIR security light trips RCD

    :( This is the nearest I could find to an 'embarrassed' emoji !! After EFLImpudence's comment yesterday, I couldn't wait to go back to go back to this, which I did this afternoon. And ! Yes, I had wired to the wrong Neutral bar. Don't ask me how!! Thanks all for reading and thanks for the help...
