    Looking for advise had dvr hikvision 208g-f1 installed last week with 4 cameras that i was told were 5mp. Because the box started beeping after a day i checked the model number and saw it supports 2mps cameras only . I have the installer coming back with a different box that is for 5mps cameras, as he saud he made a mistake and fitted wrong box?.But I am worried that I have no way of checking if i have infact got 5mp cameras installed. He is due to come back with a different box this week. I have been assured by installer they are 5mp but as a novice is there any where i can check myself I wasnt left any literature on the cameras.
