DVR Examiner 1.18.1

Update: 12/15/2015 - We just released version 1.18.1 which fixes a preview bug impacting the RSF_264 and RSF_264_E filesystems. Please be sure to download the latest version.

Hello everyone, it has been a while since we published an update to our blog, sorry for that. We are working on some changes for 2016 and this is certainly on our list!

DVR Examiner 1.18 is a big update and will be our last for this year. Within this update we have 2 new filesystems, updates for multiple filesystem, and resolved a few pesky bugs. The new version is available for download right now on our Support Portal.

Filesystems
  • Added support for the RSF_264 filesystem commonly found in Lorex and other DVRs
  • Added support for the RSF_264_E filesystem commonly found in Night Owl and other DVRs
Inaccessible Recovery!

One of our biggest requests has been completed, Inaccessible Recovery for the KSF_dc and KSF_RSF filesystems! With this release, we are now able to recover inaccessible video from the many systems covered by these filesystems, including some Swann, Q-See and Lorex DVRs. Whether the video has been deleted, accidentally formatted or the clip is partially overwritten, DVR Examiner can get video that is otherwise not accessible.

Expanded Support

We have expanded detection and support for a few filesystems, resulting in support for new makes and models!

  • 60D_Slave: Commonly found in GE DVRs, we have expanded support for secondary or slave drives
  • DHFS_41: Commonly found in Q-See and other generic DVRs, we have expanded support for systems with additional partitions
  • TangoMagic: Commonly found in ADT DVRs

Along with these improvements we continue to fix any issues that we come across, as well as any issues reported by customers and free trial users alike. We always encourage feedback from all of our users! We'll try to fix any bugs that you find, and we do our best to cater to our users' needs to implement as many requests as possible.

DVR Examiner 2.0 Development

Work has begun on DVR Examiner version 2.0 and we have a lot of things planned! We will be doing our best to balance filesystem support with additional features so stay tuned for more updates! If you have any suggestions or ideas you would like to see please let us know! We will be providing more updates on what we have planned early next year.

Thanks for your continued interest and support!

We are often asked what type of DVR system someone should purchase for their home or business and if there is a specific brand or model we recommend. The truth is, it is usually more about how you configure the system (including the cameras) than which system you buy. Sure, there are some really cheap systems out there which will limit your capabilities, but there are plenty of very expensive systems out there which (when configured incorrectly) can result in even worse video.

We want DVR Examiner to complement your workflow and make your life easier. Not everyone works in the same method, and the DVR Examiner options window is the place to go to customize DVR Examiner and make it your own. This window allows you to change settings on how DVR Examiner looks, auto fills selected data fields, and settings regarding the export report. We'll go through many of the options available and what they do in this post, however if you want to learn how to fully utilize DVR Examiner, we offer a DVR Examiner User Certification course you should consider. Screenshots are from version 1.11.

With the 1.10.0 release of DVR Examiner, we introduced support for the Vineyard_R filesystem. One of the difficulties with the system is that the proprietary files are actually created by the proprietary player – not by the DVR. In order to create these files under normal circumstances, you would connect the hard drive to your computer and access it using the manufacturer’s proprietary player.
