As people don't know the official name of this software, usually they look for "DVR boot logo changer" or "DVR startup logo changer" but the software official name is Device Manager.

For the new logo, use a BMP, jpeg, or png file.

The size image dimensions must be 800 x 600 pixels.

The DVR will automatically reboot after the logo changing and you will be able to see the new splash screen. Pretty cool, huh?


Just in case you have some trouble while trying to change the DVR logo check the following:

  • Are the DVR and PC in the same network?
  • Is the DVR using the correct IP on the network range?
  • The image format is correct (BMP, jpeg, or png)?
  • Is the image dimension correct (800x600)?

The software doesn't work with all DVRs models.

It's usually used on the cheap H.264 Network DVRs that work with XMeye .

Just test it out to see if it works for you.
