Hikvison DS-7208HGHI-SH/A Using ONVIF

A friend had Hikvision DS-7208HGHI-SH/A and tried to use 3rd party ONVIF software to see camera video. It only display 1 stream info with resolution 960x576 (which seems like 960H). However once connection was established with correct user/pass there were no video available. So he came to me, I checked the websites about Hikvision DS-7208HGHI-SH/A, nothing about ONVIF support so I told him it's not possible to use 3rd party ONVIF software to view that TVI DVR camera video, it just coincidence that he can connect or was I wrong? Looking forward your views about this.
