SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
1. Use proper power source.
Do not use this product with a power source that applies more than specified
voltage (100-240V AC).
2. Never insert anything metallic into DVR.
Inserting metal object into the DVR can be a source of dangerous electric shock.

Dropping the DVR on any hard surface may cause a malfunction. If the DVR does
not work properly due to physical damage, please contact Customer Service for
repair or exchange.
9. Use standard lithium cell battery. (NOTE: Manufacturer has preinstalled
battery.)
The standard lithium cell 3v battery located on the motherboard

Important !
· The VGA output of the DVR does not function with DVI or HDMI monitors unless
an adapter is used (sold separately by retail electronics stores).
· We do not advise changing the DVR's VGA monitor resolution. This could
render the DVR display unviewable. If that situation occurs, please see Section
14.3.1
3.5 – Connecting a USB Backup Device
Two types of USB devices that can be connected to the DVR for backing up
recording files are either a portable flash drive (thumb drive) or an external hard
drive.
The DVR runs on a Linux platform, so the drive must be formatted for the DVR to
recognize it and a Windows PC to read the files. While Linux can theoretically
read NTFS, FAT32 is a preferable option.
If the flash drive or external HDD is formatted properly, simply plug the device into
the USB port on the DVR.
The front panel USB port for backup is identified with the universal USB symbol
(
)
While you can either format the drive as FAT32 first from a Windows PC, you may
also format the drive using the USB format command in the HDD Management
console.
Important Note: Formatting the drive will erase all contents currently stored on it.
3.6 – Connecting a USB Mouse
The mouse USB port is on the rear panel of the DVR. It is the top port, labeled
with a mouse icon.

10.1.2 – OVERWRITE
With Overwrite enabled, when the hard drive runs out of space to record, the DVR will
return to the oldest file first and begin overwriting files.
A duration of days can be set when enabling the overwrite function.
Figure 10-30: Device Management Menu
10.1 – MANAGING THE HARD DRIVE
The hard drive is a semi-permanent storage device necessary for the DVR to
record video and audio input from the cameras.
The SATA hard drives available for the DVR are specially designed to withstand
the rigorous demands of continuous recording.
The 9104V DVR can support up to a 1 TB SATA hard drive.
Important Note! If overwrite is enabled, it is imperative to back up files regularly. Once a
file has been overwritten, neither Zmodo technical support nor the manufacturer can assist
in recovering the overwritten file.
If Overwrite is disabled, the DVR will stop recording when the hard drive is full. At that
point, it will be necessary to enable overwrite, replace the hard drive, or format it.
10.1.3 – HDD FORMAT
Clicking this button will execute the hard drive format process. Formatting the hard drive
must be completed before recording of video files.
A confirmation dialog box will be displayed before formatting begins.
See Section 3.1 for installing a hard drive.

12 – MOBILE PHONE SETUP
11.1 – OPTIONS
This DVR supports mobile phone access by the following devices:
Protocol
a) iPhone™
b) Blackberry™ OS V4.7 or later
c) Windows Mobile™ Pro 5.0 and 6.1 OS
d) Nokia Symbian S60 3rd Edition (9.1) and S60 5th Edition (9.4)
Zmodo PTZ cameras use Pelco-D and Pelco-P protocols. These protocols were
designed by Pelco. Pelco-D is more common.
Set the protocol to match that of the PTZ camera. The two options are Pelco-D
and Pelco-P.
Pelco-P cameras use No parity, 8 Data bits and 1 Stop bit, as do Pelco-D
cameras.
Baud Rate
Baud rate is the data transmission speed used for communication between the
DVR and PTZ camera. This setting must match the switch on the PTZ camera.
The baud rate options are 1200, 2400, 4800 and 9600.
The default setting of 9600 should be kept for most Zmodo PTZ cameras. Check
the specific camera model.
Data Bit
Sets the number of bits used in a character of data.
The options are 5, 6, 7, or 8. The default setting of 8 should be kept for Zmodo
PTZ cameras.
Stop Bit
Stop bits sent at the end of every character allow the receiving signal hardware to
detect the end of a character.
