I'm looking to fit a basic outside CCTV one maybe 2 cameras. I need live pictures on a screen inside a property but dont want remote access or any kind of storage as I will not ever want to play the film back. What components do I need (general question) Am I right in saying I dont need a DVR or hardrive? Could I just have camera, cable, screen and power source?

How are you going to view both at the same time ? Plus you will be limited to low res composite pictures via scart/ composite input
so I do need a DVR and a hard drive if I want good images?

Not sure what you want to achieve or why.

It might not be you cant do something, its how you achieve it and to advise that it might be better to declare what it is you want to achieve.
