Why Is This Dahua DVR Image Quality So Bad?

I obtained the latest version of the new "S2" version of HCVR5216A-S2 for testing. These models have no controls on the front panel and look more slick. We were looking at using these as a great way to incrementally upgrade the many SD analog systems we have to HD (HDCVI and IP). This unit auto detects SD or CVI on each channel and also accepts IP. It also supposedly allows longer UTP (CVI)...
