USB
For connecting the mouse, USB flash drive, USB portable HDD, USB portable DVD
Recorder (for the list of compatible HDDs see Appendix 2, for the list of compatible
DVD Recorders see Appendix 3). The USB mouse is hot pluggable.
NOTE: The device only supports FAT32 file system on the USB devices.
15
3.5.2 Installing Hard Disk Drive
Before you can record onto your HDD, it should be formatted by the DVR
system, because standard PC formatting is not compatible. It can be done in
the Maintenance Tab of the Tool Bar Main Menu. Please refer to Section 5.2.5
HDD for the detailed description of this process. Depending on the size of your
HDD, the format process can take several minutes.
Power connector
Data connector
Your HDD should be installed inside the DVR.
Please connect the HDD in the standard way,
screwing the HDD into the HDD brackets or DVR
base. All necessary cables are delivered with the
DVR. Use instructions that came together with the
hard drive for exact wiring and installation. Please
connect the power cable to the appropriate socket,
and the data cables to their corresponding connectors.
For the list of HDD drives tested for compatibility
please see Appendix 2.
16
3.5.3 PTZ Control Connections (optional)
Connect the PTZ control jacks to the corresponding RS485 A and B interfaces on the rear
panel.
For detailed description of PTZ protocols, baud rates and IDs please refer to
the setup section in the PTZ manual.
4. Getting Started and the Main Screen
1) Switch on your DVR and wait for the system program to load. If you have not yet installed
a hard disk drive into the device or the device didn’t read the HDD, or a new HDD didn’t be
formatted, or there is no space of the HDD to record, it will display an icon “ ” in the
video preview interface. You must format the HDD in the DVR before first using. The
steps as follows: System settings > SYSTEM > HDD management > format. After
formatting for the first time, the system will restart. If the HDD is already installed, then the
default setting is for the DVR to start recording and a red dot
on the screen will
indicate that.
17
4.1 The Main Screen
The standard layout is four (nine or sixteen, depending on the device) windows evenly
distributed over the screen. From the main screen you can access menu options and switch
among channel views, displaying either all channel feeds simultaneously or bringing forth a

be in the same network section with that of the hard disk recording machine. While in the wide
area network connection, just ensure that two sides can visit the public network, and connect
through the IP address or the dynamic domain name. The following will mainly focus on the

to 5.5.5 Network Setup). If the subnet mask and default gateway on DVR are the same with
those of the PC, then the IP address must be in the same network section but cannot be the
same with the used one. Otherwise, it will cause IP address conflicts. Take the figure above as
an example, the IP address should be: 192.168.0.x, wherein x cannot be 40 or 1 (including
other IP addresses currently being used) and cannot surpass 255, the subnet mask is
255.255.255.0 and the gateway is 192.168.0.1.

Appendix 1 Setting up Internet Connections for
Remote Access
This section will explain the ways to connect your DVR to the internet using static and
dynamic IP addresses. To connect to the internet, you will need to use a modem and a router.
As a network device, your DVR should have its own address called an Internet Protocol (IP)
address. This address can be used by other network devices (ie. computers) to access the DVR
to remotely monitor the CCTV cameras and change settings. You can get a static IP address
from your internet service provider – this way you will always have the same address at all
times, though this method is rather expensive. If you have a static IP, enter your static IP in the
DVR settings and the router will connect your DVR to the internet.
You may alternatively choose to use dynamic IP, which means that the IP address of your DVR
may frequently change, but it will still be possible to find your DVR from remote computers,
by using DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name System) which dynamically assigns IP addresses to
the DVR. This functionality allows the DVR to automatically update its IP address to the
DDNS Server each time its Dynamic IP address changes. Your DVR is equipped with the
DDNS functionality and has a list of related domain names through which you can acquire an
IP address. (See Section 5.5.2 for details.)
Setup an account with a DDNS service provider and with the account information available,
login to the router and go to the DDNS page. Select the address of your service provider and
type in the account password. After saving, the router will send IP updates to your DDNS
account and the connection will always be forwarded to you current IP.
