Hi @mfloyd:

Upon checking the compatibility, this Swann MicroCam is not compatible to the DVR8-8075.
Please refer to this COMPATIBILITY CHART.
Problem is the SWANN website for the minicam says my model is supported:

Hi mfloyd,

The Compatibility Chart is the current reference for camera compatibility. We'll have the website amended with the correct information.
