    I have had a few applications over the years where I have had a single camera at a remote location where I could have used a single channel DVR.

    A short time ago, I did work for a water utility that had about a dozen gates located remotely around a several square mile watershed area. We provided access control and a CCTV cameras at each gate. There was no connectivity between most of gates and the central monitoring post so we resorted to using dial-up or DSL depending on what we could get at the specific location.

    We had a cabinet at each gate that had a local DVR and access controller. As I recall, we used 8 or 16 channel DVRs just to stay consistent with what we were using elsewhere, but could have used a single channel DVR in this application.

      "Expert" is something like "leader". It's not a title that you can ever claim for yourself no matter what you might know or might have done. It's a title that others bestow on you based on their assessment of what you know and what you have done.

        Single channel DVRs were great replacement for VCRs that were tied to multiplexers... and those days very much are gone..

        I know for a fact that certain Casinos still use them mostly Sanyo single channel DVRs and this model specifically DSR-M810...
