Nice to meet you, *****!
A set of 4-channel DVR/NVR can allow you to have 4 individual security cameras connected to the system. This means you can record maximum 4 cameras.
6 channels mean you can expand the system in the future.

Ok how do I expand the system to play all 6 channels

Please go to"Multi" to select the channels you want to show.

ok and one other thing I wanna know is what type of flash drive would I need to record because my DVR didn’t come wit a hard drive

If you bought a Zosi DVR system without a hard drive, it doesn't support the external hard drive, so you need to buy a professional surveillance internal hard drive to install.
It is not recommended that you purchase a desktop hard drive. A surveillance hard drive or security camera hard drive is more durable, advanced, and reliable than a desktop hard drive in a lot of ways.
Here a list of surveillance HDD manufacturers:
Toshiba_ (S_300)
Western Digital_(Purple)

ok thanks

I'd recommend you buy Western Digital Purple 1TB or 2TB hard drive.
You're welcome!
Is there anything else I can do for you today?

Customer Replay

on that would be all and thanks again

Please feel free to contact us at any time. We'll be happy to help you. Have a nice one!
