TV/VCR/Stereo Troubleshooting/cctv dvr pasword


I moved my camera system from my business to my home and have someone trying to instal it. The computer guy who originally set it up never gave me the dvr password so it is locked.  
The dvr has no brand name just dvr916SXM on it. I can't find anything related online.
How can I recover the password?
Thanks for any help.

If you cannot locate the first installer you might try this standard approach (which works for Magnavox, Philips and a few other brands).

I could not locate any information for the model number you gave. Sorry.
