    CCTV Camera Pros recently sold an iDVR-E8 surveillance system DVR to a customer in Europe. Europe uses PAL video standards, however the factory default setting for the iDVRs is set to NTSC, which is the North American video standard.

    To change the video format on an iDVR from NTSC to PAL, customers can follow these instructions:

    • Stop the recording on the DVR if it is currently recording.
    • On the flat panel display of the DVR, press and hold the clear button and the one button at the same time for several seconds to access a hidden menu for advanced DVR settings.
    • After about 10 seconds, you will be prompt for the admin password of the DVR. Enter the password. The default password is 6 zeros "000000".
    • You will them be brought to a system menu where you can select to change the video format from NTSC to PAL or vice versa
