This is because settings have been changed or more cameras have been added.
For example, if your DVR is set to 'always record' then this will give you the shortest recorded time period.
If you select an option such as 'motion detection', this will give you a longer recording period as less data is being stored.

This means that the resolution has been altered, you will need to connect this to a monitor to change the resolution back to default, or factory reset to take this back to the default.
When setting up the app, please make sure you register the serial number and not the IP address, as this will not allow you to connect to a 3G/4G network.
