    Hi, this is the first time I have used this kind of website, I am having a hard time finding a cable to connect my wireless ip camera to my dvr, I have attached a photo of the connections, on the dvr the video in cable is a push on and twist, I think the audio in is a normal type. The connections on the ip camera has what looks like a normal male connection and a more unusual female connection. If anyone can help me find the relevant cables, I would be extremely grateful, many thanks, Andy.

    I would think that the wireless camera should be connecting to the wireless connection and your DVR should see it. But if you are able to do Ethernet connection I would do that instead.

    Is the camera and the NVR from the same manufacturer? Was it sold as a kit?

    As James said, if both are IP capable, you don't need to do a direct physical connection between the two devices. In fact the NVR you show only has one Ethernet connection. With my Hikvision setup, My cameras are wired but into a network switch which also provides power to the cameras. So as long as the cameras can talk to the NVR over the network, you don't need to wire the camera directly to it. This also applies to if your camera is talking on the network via wireless. My Hikvision NVR also has a built in switch which can also provide power to my IP cameras. I opted not to use the ports on my NVR.

    Hi, thank you for the information, I'm not too good with software so I guess it's there that I'm going wrong, I tried an ethernet cable between camera and dvr but still didn't get any pictures on monitor, monitor is connected to dvr ok and displays 4 sections for cameras, might be time to get someone round to connect it for me lol.
