    Hi all!
    does any one know if plugging a lead into the router in say port 1 and plugging the other end into port 2 could ruin a DVR plugged in at port 3?

    You connected a cable from Port 1 on the router to Port 2? Why? No, it wouldn't destroy your DVR on Port 3.

    I don't understand your other post.

    No someone connected the cable to make the DVR crash for connecting through remotely, whilst I was installing the CCTV systems and did it a few times later through the year, so I would have another run around, like I did, and just wander is it the cause of the DVR crashing out completely every so often now

    I don't know what CCTV is, and I don't know why you're connecting an ethernet cable from one port to another on a router. If whatever you're doing (and not explaining well) immediately causes problems with the DVR, then that's the problem.

    But I can't figure out what you're talking about.

    I'm familiar with DVRs. I have several. I don't know what CCTV is in your post, and I don't know why you're connecting two ports together on your router.

    cctv system - surveilance system if i could spell,

    I am not trying to connect 2 ports, like I said someone did connect 2 ports knowing it would mess up my DVR up for remote viewing as it messes up other computers on the same router, he has done it to make my job of installing the CCTV/ DVR/ camera system longer- must of thought I was charging him to much

    CCTV is China Central Television. Or maybe Cambridge Community Television. Or Capital Community Television. Or maybe something else. Probably has something to do with Television. I guess it's just gonna remain Harrydunn's little secret.

    Closed-circuit television
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "CCTV" redirects here. For other uses, see CCTV (disambiguation).


    Surveillance cameras on a corner.
    Closed-circuit television (CCTV) is the use of video cameras to transmit a signal to a specific place, on a limited set of monitors.
    It differs from broadcast television in that the signal is not openly transmitted, though it may employ point to point (P2P), point to multipoint, or mesh wireless links. Though almost all video cameras fit this definition, the term is most often applied to those used for surveillance in areas that may need monitoring such as banks, casinos, airports, military installations, and convenience stores. Videotelephony is seldom called "CCTV" but the use of video in distance education, where it is an important tool, is often so called.[1][2]
    In industrial plants, CCTV equipment may be used to observe parts of a process from a central control room, for example when the environment is not suitable for humans. CCTV systems may operate continuously or only as required to monitor a particular event. A more advanced form of CCTV, utilizing Digital Video Recorders (DVRs), provides recording for possibly many years, with a variety of quality and performance options and extra features (such as motion-detection and email alerts). More recently, decentralized IP-based CCTV cameras, some equipped with megapixel sensors, support recording directly to network-attached storage devices, or internal flash for completely stand-alone operation.
    Surveillance of the public using CCTV is particularly common in the United Kingdom, where there are reportedly more cameras per person than in any other country in the world.[3] There and elsewhere, its increasing use has triggered a debate about security versus privacy.
