Although it seems like a simple question, the answer is not so simple. The reason is because the majority of the security camera DVRs manufactured between 2007 and 2018 use H.264 video codec and label their DVR cases with the term “H.264 DVR”.
H.264 is not a brand or a model, although it appears to be on many DVR cases. It is a video compression standard that virtually every surveillance manufacturer uses. Even Apple uses it in their iPhones. There are hundreds of CCTV DVRs out there that are labeled H.264 DVR. Each of them has their own default master password and their own process on how-to reset it.
I wrote this article to help people track down the instructions on how-to reset the password on their DVR. Here are some steps that you can take.
1: Locate Your DVR Product Code / Model Number
Inspect your DVR’s case for a product sticker. DVR manufacturers typically place a silver product sticker on the back of their DVR cases. Some will have a DVR model on them.
For example, the above product label is placed on the back of our iDVR-PRO CCTV DVRs. You can see that the iDVR-PRO4A model is clearly displayed on it. Using this example, I would recommend searching Google for something like “iDVR-PRO4A password reset”. If no results are useful, then simply search for “iDVR-PRO4A” to try to locate the manufacturer or someone that supplies it. You can then call or email to see if they have instructions.

2: Locate Your DVR’s Brand
This is less likely to exist than a product sticker, but some security system suppliers put their brand on the DVR case. We do this.
For example, this is the front of our iDVR-PRO16H 16ch CCTV DVR. You can see that our iDVR-PRO brand is clearly displayed. Using this example, I would recommend searching on Google for “iDVR-PRO password reset instructions” or just “iDVR-PRO”.
3: Do You Have An Email Order Confirmation
If you originally purchased the DVR online, search through your email account to see if you can locate the original order confirmation email or any other email correspondence related to your DVR. If have an email, see if that company is still in business and reachable.

TVT is a Chinese company that manufactures various DVRs, NVRs and cameras which are sold re-branded worldwide. This company is so popular at the low-end CCTV market that there’s a high chance that your DVR is manufactured by them. You may have a TVT DVR but you don’t know because there’s no such inscription or logo on the recorder. Usually these DVRs are sold under other brand names such as H.264 DVR, QT DVR, Q-See DVR, analog DVR and numerous other brands. In this article we will show an easy trick how to reset the lost password on a TVT or H.264 DVR.
How to tell if your DVR is manufactured by TVT?
There’re a few simple ways to tell. For example check the main menu screen, if it’s the same as the one pictured below, then you have a TVT DVR (H.264 DVR) and you can use the method shown here to quickly reset the password.
Below is the main screen if you login on a TVT DVR via the web browser. If you see the same screen on your computer, then your H.264 DVR is made by TVT and you can use the procedure shown here to reset the password.

How to reset the password on H.264 DVR or TVT DVR
Step 1. Go directly to the TV/monitor connected to your H.264 DVR and bring up the login screen. Note: you need to use the monitor to reset the password, it won’t work if you try to reset remotely (or locally) through the web browser.
Step 2. Use the username and master password below to reset the password on your H.264/TVT DVR. Try both accounts and see which one works. If it works, the recorder will reboot.
Step 3. If the password reset went through, your recorder will reboot and when it’s back on you can try to login with the factory default account which for these recorders is username: admin and password: 123456.
