    Not familiar with the hiwatch range.

    use a web browser log into DVR and look at the DVR display settings would be my first point of call.

    Try a different hdmi on the tv or try a vga lead if your tv has this input

    glad its sorted.

    The display settings can be an issue with different TV sets and the output from the DVR/NVR.

    Same TV should not have been an issue with the same cable unless cable got damaged or display settings changed at the DVR or TV.
