How to find out if cctv has been tampered with?

So say someones managed to lets say hack into a cctv system and managed to get footage or view and record footage for themselves,so basiclly how would you know if someones managed to tamper with the system (camera,monitor,DVR,quad splitter everything)

It depends on the DVR, how entry was gained, etc.

For example, if the DVR is on a network and was accessed over the network, then the network logs would see that activity. If the DVR was physically accessed, then reviewing the video would be one way… checking the dust on the hardware is another.
