Sequential Setup (Auto Sequence)
Sequential Setup (Auto Sequence) allows you to view connected cameras in an automatic
sequence. Sequential Setup can include both full-screen and split screen modes.
For more details on Sequential Setup, see see “Sequential Setup” on page 22.

RECORDING
By default, the system is set to immediately record at startup from connected cameras—
continuous recording. It is highly recommended to keep continuous recording on at all times.
The system can perform Continuous Recording, Event Recording, and Schedule Recording.
However, the system can only perform one type of recording at a given time.
Continuous Recording
By default, all camera channels are enabled with continuous recording. During Continuous
Recording, the REC icon appears in the top left corner of the OSD, "R" appears in the status bar
at the bottom of the OSD, and any connected cameras will have their channel numbers in RED (see
figure 0.0).

• In this example,
Continuous Recording is
on ALL channels (default)
Figure 8.0 Continuous recording on all channels (4CH model shown)
Event Recording
The system includes three modes of event recording:
•
Motion: The system only records when motion is detected by the affected camera
•
Alarm: The system records when an alarm or sensor is triggered
•
Video Loss: The system records when a camera is disconnected or suffers video loss. The
system employs a pre-record function to capture video seconds before the video loss occurred
You can customize the recording parameters (video quality, frames-per-second) of Event Recording in the
Record menu. See “RECORD” on page 24.
16
Recording
Motion
Motion Detection must be applied to specific cameras. If you assign Motion Detection to a camera,
that camera will only record when a motion event is triggered. The camera enabled with Motion
Detection will have a WHITE number on the OSD (see figure 8.1).

4
• In this example, motion
detection was assigned to
camera 4, so the channel
number is WHITE
• Continuous Recording
remains on channels 1~3
Figure 8.1 Motion assigned to channel 4 (4CH model shown)
NOTE: A white number can also indicate that recording on a camera has been disabled. For
better security it is highly recommended to keep continuous recording for all cameras on at
all times. Use caution when assigning motion detection to specific cameras.
When motion is detected by the camera, the motion icon will appear, and the channel number will
turn RED (see figure 8.2).

• In this example, motion was
detected on camera 4—the

NOTE: Press the CANCEL/ESC button on the remote control, front panel, or Virtual Remote to
clear the motion icon.
NOTE: If you assign motion detection to ALL cameras, the REC icon will not appear in the top-left
corner, but the "R" will remain in the status bar of the OSD.

Recording
Alarm
When an alarm is triggered, the system will continue to record, but can apply unique recording
parameters that you can set in the Alarm menu (Main Menu>Alarm). For details, see “ALARM” on
page 24.
NOTE: Press the CANCEL/ESC button on the remote control, front panel, or Virtual Remote to
clear the alarm icon.
Video Loss
If a camera is disconnected or is damaged, the video loss icon will appear for the affected channel.
The channel number will turn WHITE.
NOTE: Once video has been restored, press the CANCEL/ESC button on the remote control,
front panel, or Virtual Remote to clear the video loss icon.
Schedule Recording
Schedule Recording can be set manually or at startup. Schedule Recording features customizable
recording parameters that you assign to each camera.
ATTENTION: Schedule Recording takes priority over all other recording modes.
Figure 8.3 Schedule Recording screen
The Schedule recording icon—
—indicates schedule recording is enabled. If you do not see the
icon, schedule recording is NOT ENABLED.
For details on setting a recording schedule, see “SCHEDULE” on page 25.
Recording Audio
The system can record one channel of audio. You must have an audio enabled camera or
self-powered microphone connected to the system in order to use this function. For details on
connected audio recording devices, see “Appendix I: Using Listen-in Audio” on page 85.

NOTE: DCHP allows you to quickly connect to
your network by obtaining an IP address from
the router. After the initial setup, we recommend
that you disable DHCP and set the IP address
between 1~100. For example, if your IP address
is 192.168.0.107, change the last digits to 90 (i.e.
192.163.0.90). This ensures that port forwarding
will not change in the event of power failure or

APPENDIX B: SETTING UP REMOTE VIEWING
Setting up the Remote Viewing Feature requires several steps. Networking skills are required to
correctly configure the remote viewing functions.
What Do I Need?
• DVR System
• A PC with the installed DVR NetView software
• A router (not provided with the system) and High Speed Cable or DSL Internet Connectivity
(for remote viewing outside your network)

Network Setup / Remote Access Overview
To setup remote viewing:
1. With the system powered off, connect the system to the router using an Ethernet cable.
2. Power the system on. You must connect the system to the router prior to turning on the
system. This allows the system and router to communicate over the network.
3. Press and hold the Enter button on the front panel to find your system's IP address.
4. Enable Port Forwarding on your router. Refer to the included Router Guide and Basics of
Remote Video Access Guide for further assistance with your specific network setup and
hardware.
5. Setup an account at http://ddns.digimerge.net

Appendix B: Setting up Remote Viewing
How Do I Find My IP and MAC addresses?
The IP and MAC address of your system are necessary for DDNS setup. DDNS allows you to view
and control your system from a remote location.
Figure 40.0 DVR Status screen
To find your IP and MAC addresses:
1. Open the MAIN MENU and select SYSTEM.
2. Under the INFO tab you will find your system’s IP address and MAC address.
Finding Your External IP Address
If you wish to find your external IP address, you can use a third-party website such as
www.showmyip.com
Your external IP address can also be found within your Router settings. Refer to your router user
guide for further details.
70
Appendix B: Setting up Remote Viewing
How Do I Enable Port Forwarding?
You need to enable port forwarding on your router to allow for external communications with your
system for the following port:
• 7000
Computers, DVRs, and other devices inside your network can only communicate directly with each
other within the internal network. Computers and systems outside your network cannot directly
communicate with these devices. When a system on the internal network needs to send or receive
information from a system outside the network (i.e. from the Internet), the information is sent to
the router.
NETWORK EXAMPLE
Router
External IP
216.13.154.34
Router

192.168.0.1
PC
Internal IP
192.168.0.2
DVR
Internal IP
192.168.0.3
Internet
Internal Network
When a computer on the Internet needs to send data to your internal network, it sends this data
to the external IP address of the Router. The Router then needs to decide where this data is to be
sent to. This is where setting up Port Forwarding becomes important.
Port Forwarding tells the router which device on the internal network to send the data to. When
you set up port forwarding on your Router, it takes the data from the external IP address:port
number and sends that data to an internal IP address:port number (i.e. Router External IP
216.13.154.34 to DVR Internal IP 192.168.0.3:7000).
The instructions found online in the Router Configuration Guides will assist you in the port
forwarding configurations for a selection of different router models. Visit our Consumer Guides
Support website at http://www.digimerge.com/ for more details.

following naming convention:
yyyy_mm_dd_hh_mm_ss_channel#_channel#_channel#_channel#.avi
