WD ReadyView VGA Connection Times Out/Shows locks on cameras and no video

edited November 2021 in Networking & Security

So, I just added two more cameras to my WD ReadyView system. I have had a VGA monitor attached directly to the system and it always showed my cameras. Ever since adding my new cameras it requires me to log in and times out after a short period of time, showing the locks in the lower left hand corners and no longer shows me the video streams.

    Good afternoon @Maluokeakua

    I do apologize you are having issues with the security system. If you unlock the screen and open it up are you able to right click on the screen and select one of the camera or change how many cameras are showing? Also in the setting there is an auto logout timer. if you go in to the menu and under setting it should be under the basic section and you should be able to set this here.
