Aqua Vu DVR owners

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased an aqua vu dvr and i would like to get an SD card for it. I see that they have SD cards which go up to 8 GB now but when i called nature vision about this they said that the largest SD card you could use would be 3 GB.

My questions are have any of you guys used sd cards larger then 3 GB and have they worked?

Where would you even get a 3 GB sd card cause ive never heard of them?

How much video can you record on a 1, 2, 4, or 8 GB card?

Nature Vision's HSOforum said that you could only get about 2 hours of video on a 1 GB sd card but i thought i read on here that guys were getting much longer times. Thanks for your help!

I have a 2 gig card in mine. and to be honest, I have no clue how much vid I can take.. I have never taken more than about an hour per outing? They are fun to have, and record stuff to show your friends...

Mark,

Max is a 2gb card that you can use (3gb doesn't exist)The amount of video you can get per gb is related to the amount of movement on the camera, etc. But I think you get about 15min for every 64mb give or take....

Thanks for all of the input fellas and you are correct about 2 gb cards being the largest they can handle (i called NV again this morning and got a better reasoning).

So with that said, how much video can a guy put on a 2 GB card? I think if i did the math right it would be around 5 hours and 20 minutes when assuming you can get 140 minutes on a 1 GB card (that is what NV told me you would get).

It will also vary depending on the brightness of your display image. I know with digital cameras a photo that is a bit over exposed is considerably larger than one that is properly exposed, usually by 1/3 of the size. Many variables play into the amount of storage something will eat up.

As some know, I am somewhat in the loop of NatureVision.. I made a phone call to get a few more answers.. This is what I got.

With the Aqua Vu DVR recording time is somewhat variable with the 2G SD cards. It varies anywhere from 2-4+ hours depending on the amount of Memory being used. Less motion uses less memory and that is why you get extended capturing time in a stationary setting when ice fishing and less time when used for open water use. One thing to point out is the unit is flexible in that you can delete unwanted footage one the water to free up space.

So, I hope this helps you out!

You might be able to buy a 4GB card and it might just recognize the first 3GB of the card. Some technology is like that. It will accept higher amounts, but will only recognize up to the max that is can support. Computers RAM for instance does that. Computers will support a certain max RAM, but you can put an amount over that and while it will accept the RAM it will only use max amount that the computer can recognize.

Never tried it with an SD card, but it might work.

Broman,

The thing with most SD cards over 2GB is that they are the Ultra SD. And those just aren't supported.

jpz,

Are you speaking about the HC cards?

NewEgg has a 4GB Transcend (TS4GSDC) Non-HC card for just under $8. At that price its cheap enough price to give it a try. Otherwise, if you're okay with the 2GB cards, then stick to that.

Are you guys speaking of the add on little box by nature vision or the actual built in camera with dvr they now make? My wife bought me a Aqua View SRX for my birthday and I have been wondering how they work. I looked at the possible dvr box by Nature Vision, or thought to just buy a camera to hook up to it.

Muc- its an add on that plugs right into your Aqua Vu. Or little Box as you call it..LOL

Works great, you hit record, it records, you can then download it to your computer.

    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it. 
    • I stick pretty simple on full chickens.... A couple of pads of garlic butter under the skin and a little olive oil rub down on DRY skin (very important to have dry skin if you want it to be crispy when you are done). Seasoned the big one with Lawry's and the small one with Weber Kick'n Chicken. Heated the grill up to 375. Both birds were done in a little over an hr..... Pretty cheap and easy - and the wife is getting sick of pork so,,,,,,
    • Agreed... that is why I took the gamble on a brand that no one had heard of at the time... but the Big Horn grills are getting picked up by more and more vendors. Hopefully they don't figure out that they are giving away profit and decide to raise their prices! On the flip side, have you shopped for a gas grill these days? Holy smokes! The char-broil 3 burner basic that cost $129.99 3 years ago is now $209.99... what gives?  
    • I bought a motorcycle from a guy a few years back only to find out he never turned the title over in his name when he bought it. If I remember right I had to write to the DMV main office with a copy of the bill of sale before they would share the past owners of the bike. Then it took some detective work but I was able to track down the first owner and get them to write a new bill of sale.  Also had an old utility trailer I bought the same way, but for that I just re-registered it as a home made trailer.  At least there is Goggle now to look up some names if you can get them. Good Luck.  
    • dat looks darn good!!!!   what seasonings this time??  
    • My concern with the Statement of Facts sheet is it talked about watercrafts with titles.    I was a first time privet party boat buyer and saw a good deal. Got over eager and didn’t really know what to look for. The hull is a 97. I purchased it with only a bill of sale. When I brought the bill of sale into the DMV they said sorry can’t put this in your name or issue registration. The name on this bill of sale is not the actual owner.   Everything I’m reading about the application process requires actually knowing the owners actually name and information and requiring his signature. I have now idea who the real owner is and on top of that the seller is appearing to be mia...   Is there anything I can do or am I just SOL and learned my lesson the hard way?

    • .......Hate to know what that is going to do to the price
    • Enough of the bantering though... time for more food porn...
