If your CCTV camera is working fine but the DVR is not recording anything, common culprits include misconfiguration, lack of storage space, and failing DVR components. Don’t despair: modern DVR boxes are pretty friendly and easy to troubleshoot. Check that recording is enabled. It may sound obvious, but it happens.
Can I record CCTV on my PC?
You can use an OLD PC /laptop as a CCTV DVR Security System. A laptop/ PC has a screen that can display multiple live cameras. It can connect to multiple IP cameras and webcams (incl USB webcams). It can record data to local storage and cloud storage at the same time, which is more secure than a regular DVR.
How do I fix my DVR not recording?

- Make sure the coax cable is connected to the outlet.

Can I use CCTV camera without DVR?

Can I connect a DVR to my computer?
Connecting a Digital Video Recorder to a computer requires a cable equipped with HDMI (High Definition Media Interface) cables on both ends, or an HDMI connector on one end and RCA-type audio/video jacks or a USB connector on the other end, depending on the available connection pots on the DVR.
Can a CCTV work without electricity?
The short answer is that CCTV cameras will not work when there is no electricity. These cameras have a backup battery and onboard storage so that they can still record for a time after the power has gone out. Usually the recording time and power for such devices is limited due to the limits of batteries.
