Questions & Answers

15/02/2013 jamie: whats the difference between the the kpd 674 & kpd675? thanks

Gavin: Hi Jamie, the 675 is full D1, so you can record on maximum resolution and frames per second (25fps) on two out of four channels.


15/04/2012 Michael: I have this product and am very happy.
My Firmware is 1008D-1003D-1004D-1002D and may need to up date. Where do I find the latest firmware to check it..update and also find clear instructions on how to do this.
Cheers, Michael Wayne

Gavin: Follow the link below;



Unzip the file and copy all the unzipped files on a memory stick and and connect the memory stick to the DVR.
Press the menu button and after entering your password go to system info and select firmware upgrade from there.
You will get a message saying if you want to keep the current configuration. Say yes to that message please.
Firmware upgrade should start at this point and after the firmware upgrade the DVR will reboot.

Many thanks

11/01/2012 Jahno: Hi, will I be able to use the ZTV night vision wireless cameras & receivers (812D) with this model which I'm currently using with the old AV760 160GB model?

Many thanks

Gavin: Hi, if you go to Zedcam Packages on the website you'll see the DVR's they are compatible with. They will not be compatible with the standard analogue AVTech DVR's we sell. You need to use the specific ones on the Zedcam Packages section.


09/01/2012 Jahno: Hi, I want to upgrade my DVR, and I'd like to know if this DVR is much better than the old AV760 with 160GB? If so, how is it better? And will I be able to use the existing ZTV night vision wireless cameras & receivers (812D)?
Also, how much GB comes with this DVR?
Many thanks

paul: We can fit a 500GB hard drive for £54.97 or £69.97 for a 1TB hard drive.

This DVR will offer you much better file compression, Iphone/ smart phone support, a VGA port, USB, and mouse control. And will be easier to use.

08/01/2012 Jon: Hi, I have a spare 160gb excelstor sata drive. Will this work ok? Thanks Jon

Gavin: Hi Jon, that will work fine. Please bare in mind you wikll need to re-format it.


24/11/2011 GD: I bought one of these last year. Is there a firmware upgrade available?

paul: Please see

26/10/2011 Peter C: Is there a data sheet for this DVR as there is for the KPD675?

Paul: Don't have a data sheet but do have a link to the manual that will tell you more. Pls see

15/05/2011 Andrew Jones: I can see that this product supports PTZ control but I cannot see an RS485 connection on the machine. Could you please advise how a wired PTZ camera with an RS485 connection can be connected to this machine?

jonathan: It has a Serial I/O on the back, however we wouldn't really advise this model to control a PTZ and it wouldn't work with a RS485.

22/03/2011 Rob V.: What is the maximum FPS and Resolution that can be recorded and across how many channels simultaneously. Also, can you have 2 channels set to "the max" and then 2 channels set at a lower FPS and resolution?

mark h: Max FPS is 100 FPS across all channels, Max resolution is 704 x 576, there are also 4 image quality settings, Super Best, Best, High, Normal. You can set the FPS independently for each camera

13/03/2011 Tone: Can recorded footage be transfered to a usb stick and viewed on a PC by the police? What format is it in?

mark h: Yes it can be, the format can either be in an AVI file that can be played on Windows Media Player or Avtechs own compression to use with the software they provide

01/03/2011 Paul: Hi I am very interested in this product. I want to view it over the net (iphone) I have a static IP (which I think is needed) but will not be able to get a LAN cable from it to my router.
As my router is wireless, could I plug a Linkys wireless G usb network adaptor (WUSB54GS) into the LAN socket and communicate wirelessly to the Linkys wireless router? I guess I would need a Lan lead to that square USB socket (usb b?) on the wireless adaptor

Would this slow the wifi down all the time, once connected up, or would it only upload on demand, ie when asked for from the iphone. If it transmitted all the time I guess I would need a very large bandwidth from my isp ?

mark h: If you already have a static IP that's great, alternatively a dynamic DNS service can be used. To essentially make your DVR wireless so it can connect to your network without a network cable you will need a bridge or a wireless print server or similar with a Lan port. We normally use the Netgear WNCE2001-100UKS. A USB wireless device wouldn't be suitable as the USB port on the DVR is only for backing up data onto a flash drive. It will only use upload bandwidth and transmit data across your network when you are accessing it from a browser or mobile device, the rest of time it will be ready but not transmitting. Your normal internet use as its download bandwidth should be unaffected

08/02/2011 Sean: Can you record and playback using the USB only, if you didnt want to use an internal harddrive?

mark h: The USB is only to transfer data onto a USB stick. An internal hard drive would have to be used if you want to record footage

05/10/2010 Madhouse !!: Does it have a standard video out socket to connect to standard tv ?

mark: It has VGA. You can buy a BNC --> scart converter: AKEVCONN5. You would also need AKEBNC1 (BNC cable)

18/08/2010 Pete: Hi - does the web interface work with the browser in a smart phone ? Android or iPhone for example ? thanks, Pete

mark h: Yes it does through Avtech's dedicated software Eagle Eyes. Please see the View CCTV on your iPhone button on the left hand side of our Homepage for full details.

14/05/2010 Chris: How does remote access work on this DVR - it mentions a special 'licensed' program, is this used instead of a standard webrowser? If a webrowser is supported, does Firefox work OK? Can the unit be used totally remotely, i.e. using PC access without a local display on the CCTV unit?

How reliable is this box, it seems remarkably cheap (I realise the price is without hard drive).

I've some experience of a Dedicated Micros CCTV unit at work, which is excellent but any times more expensive than this box.

mark h: The dedicated software offers more functionality than viewing remotely from a web browser, however you can use either. We only use IE however it should work from Firefox. We have sold 1000's of these units with no problems. You cant really compare Dedicated Micro's with this equipment, its not like for like, however these units are perfect for residential or small business use, and are far better than the majority at this price point. We have some Topica units for more commercial applications if you require them

21/02/2010 tony: does this product kpd674 come with software for remotely viewing

mark h: Yes it does
