    If your camera time is drifting, it may be because the time on the recorder is set incorrectly. Follow the steps below to rectify the issue.

    (Black GUI) Setting the Time and Changing the Camera Sync Interval

    1. Right click and select Main Menu, select System, then Date & Time.

    2. Ensure the date and time, DST (if applicable in your state/territory), and NTP is setup. In Australia, the NTP server is au.pool.ntp.org

    3. Select the Save button after setting the time, then select Apply.

    3. Select the Basic tab. Ensure CAM Time Sync is enabled, and the interval is set to 1. This means the recorders time will synchronise with the camera's every 1 hour. Select Apply.
