    I use the secumate too, it's the perfect surveillance recorder for the car. More channels = more power consumption, which most likely wont be practical for a 24/7 system. So there are tradeoffs.

    As for the camera, anyone else mount theirs to the rearview and notice it gets very hot when sitting in a car with windows up and exposed to the sun all day?

    Buy a DQP then connect that to the DVR. The DQP runs on 12V power. That is what I am doing. I have the cameras connected to the DQP, then from the monitor out on the DQP it goes to the DVR.

    Your right, 4 constantly running cameras, a DVR, and the DQP would kill the battery. Thats why I decided to only use it for driving.

    Yea, a Quad Splitter... Its cool because most DQP have a built in battery. So the time and date are always correct. So if you prgram it to show the time and date, then connect to the DVR, you will have accurate time and date. Why would the image be useless?

    lets say you DVR runs at 640*480 (that waht 450TV lines( or max aboy 720x thats like 580 line) so when you use quad then you geting only 1/4 of the resolution for each channel so say i wana read license plate of other car but it will be too small and there is no option to zoom in as you only will have 160x120. So I can only use quad just to see general object presanse ((

    My suplier salese 4ch mobile DVR for 200 buks and, im not sure what the power requirements for that... but it seams to be regular DVR w/ shock restrains

    Well I figured out how to power the DVR. I had a couple of XM 5V car adapters laying around. Not sure if the plugs will fit into the DVR, but thats easy to swap out with the correct one.

    OOHHHHH, I see what you are saying. Sorry for not getting you the first time. Yes it will be smaller, but if your recording and have to watch the video later and its too small. The DQP has a zoom feature to get in close when looking over the recording. It should be ledgable with the zoom feature. I would think it also depends on the quality of the camera too. Well I will say, I plan on trying it. I just have to buy the second DQP and the DVR, then I can check.

    For me it is, lol..... Im really bad with that kind of stuff. I had to buy the special relay from Curiosity to get DQP #1 to go into the 3 way view that I wanted. I had been working on that for almost a year!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then he came along and boom, finished!
