Q: How long does it take to backup video remotely?
A: The time required to back up video remotely through Netviewer depends on your internet
connection speed. Your internet connection speed depends on many factors. One factor is how
congested your network is. For example, if there is heavy traffic on your internet connection, you
may experience slower download rates.
Because of the high resolution video, the maximum rate that you can remotely download video
from your DVR is approximately 1MB / minute (one megabyte per-minute). The videos are saved
in 30 minute segments.
Q: How do I take screenshots in Netviewer?
A: To take screenshots in Netviewer, you must use your operating system’s screen capture
function.

Smartphone/Mobile Connectivity:
Q: If my house loses power, will I be able to connect to my Edge DVR remotely
after the power in my house resumes?
A: Yes, you will be able to connect to your system remotely after recovering from a power failure
under the following conditions:
• You have created a DDNS account, and have enabled DDNS in the DVR.
• You have port forwarded the proper ports in the router so that you can connect to your DVR
using a DDNS address.

When DHCP is enabled in the DVR, the DVR automatically obtains an IP address after the system
powers on. The DVR turns on by itself when it receives power.
Tips to maintain constant connectivity:
• It is recommended that you connect your DVR and cameras to an Uninterruptible Power
Supply (UPS). An UPS ensures that your system continues to receive power in the event of a
power failure.
• Remember to connect your modem and router to the UPS, so that you can access the system
remotely, even if your entire house loses power. If your modem and router are off, you will
not be able to access your system remotely even if your DVR and cameras are on.
An Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) has a built-in
battery that charges when it is connected to a power
outlet. When the power to your home stops, the
built-in battery supplies power to the devices
connected to it.
The duration of backup power varies between models.

Q: Where can I get the latest firmware for the Edge Series DVR?
A: Firmware upgrades are available as a free download from www.lorextechnology.com. The
latest firmware is located under the Product Updates section of the product page for your DVR
model. To access the product page, search for the model number of your DVR (e.g. LH314).
Firmware upgrades are specific to your DVR model. Please see the readme file
included in the firmware download to confirm that your DVR is compatible with
that version of the firmware and for installation instructions.
Touchscreen Setup and Operation (8/16-channel only):
Q: When I connect the DVR to the monitor, I see images from the camera, but
the touchscreen operation is not working. What should I do?
A: Make sure you connect the USB cable between the monitor and DVR. If it is still not working,
power off the DVR, ensure the monitor is on, and then power on the DVR so that the USB is
recognized.
NOTE: Touchscreen operation is only supported on 8/16-channel models.
Q: Why do I get a “USB cannot be detected” error message?
A: The DVR has two USB ports: one in the front and one in the back. Connect the monitor to either
the front or back USB port. 

If you still receive an error, switch USB ports. If you have your USB cable plugged into the front
USB port, switch to the back USB port.
NOTE: If necessary, power off the DVR. Ensure the monitor is powered on, and then power the
DVR back on.

Touchscreen Setup and Operation (8/16-channel only):
Q: What is the correct sequence for connecting the DVR and touchscreen
monitor?
A: To connect the DVR to a touchscreen monitor:
1. Connect all the cables:
• Connect the DVI cable from the DVR to the monitor.
• Connect the USB cable from the DVR to the monitor.
• Connect the power cord from the power outlet to the monitor.
2. Power on the monitor.
3. Power on the DVR.
NOTE: It will take 1-2 minutes for the DVR to automatically detect the connection to the monitor.
Q: Why am I seeing the same camera twice during split-screen viewing?
A: The touchscreen monitor has the ability to "map" cameras onto any desired channel. You may
have accidently mapped the same camera twice onto different channels. Mapping cameras gives
you the flexibility to re-arrange the camera order on screen, which allows you to obscure the
number or location of your cameras or hide the fact that an area is being monitored.
To change the camera that you have mapped onto a channel:
Slide your finger on the channel to open the
channel slider. Slide your finger left or right
to select the desired channel number.
Release your finger from the screen to
confirm the selection.
Q: Can I extend the length of the USB cable on the touchscreen monitor?
A: The touchscreen features will not function if you attempt to connect a longer USB cable to it.
The monitor is designed to work with the included USB cable only.
