NOTE: When set to the H.264 codec, the DVR can record more images by compressing more effectively
than using the MPEG-4 codec. However, the recording speed might decrease depending on the display
option and DVR’s operation mode.
Selecting the H.264 codec and enabling the VGA Enhancement function will cause the recording speed
to be decreased by half. Refer to the System section in this chapter for setting up the VGA Enhancement
function.
The maximum recording and playback speed when using the H.264 codec is as follows.
When the DVR is in the Recording Mode only
Disable VGA Enhancement

WEBGUARD
WebGuard allows you to access a remote DVR, monitor live video images and search recorded video using
Internet Explorer web browser anytime from virtually anywhere.
Computer system requirements for using WebGuard are:
Operating System: Microsoft Windows® 2000, Microsoft Windows® XP or Microsoft Windows® Vista
CPU: Intel Pentium III (Celeron) 600MHz or faster
RAM: 128MB or higher
VGA: 8MB or higher (1024x768, 24bpp or higher)
Internet Explorer: Version 6.0 or later
Start Internet Explorer on your local PC. You can run the WebGuard program by entering the following
information in the address field.
– “http://IP address:port number” (The DVR IP address and the WebGuard port number (default: 12088) set in the
Network setup screen (Network tab))
– Or, “http://DVRNS server address/DVR name” (The DVRNS server address and the DVR name registered on
the DVRNS server)
– Or, “http://www.dvronline.net” (Entering the DVR IP address or the DVR name will be required when logging in)
Select between the WEBWATCH (Web monitoring) and
WEBSEARCH (Web search) modes and enter the appropriate
port number of the program. Entering your ID and PASSWORD
and clicking the [LOGIN] button logs in using the selected mode.
Selecting Save ID saves the ID you entered.
You will need to enter the DVR IP address in the DVR ADDRESS field when running the WebGuard
program by entering http://www.dvronline.net. Selecting the Use DVRNS option allows you to enter the
DVR name registered on the DVRNS server instead of the IP address. You must enter the DVRNS server
address and port number in the SETUP setting when selecting the Use DVRNS option.
NOTES:
You will need to get the appropriate IP address for the DVR you want to connect to and the WebGuard
port number from your network administrator.
WebGuard only works with Microsoft Internet Explorer and will NOT work with other browsers.
The port numbers for WEBWATCH and WEBSEARCH should be the same port numbers used for Remote
Watch and Remote Search that were set during the network setup (Main Menu – NETWORK – LAN tab).
When running the updated WebGuard for the first time, Internet Explorer might occasionally load the
information of the previous version. In this case, delete the temporary Internet files by selecting Tools Internet Options General tab, and then run WebGuard again.
There might be a problem with the bottom of the WebGuard page being cropped caused by the address
or status bars in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0. In this situation, it is recommended that websites open
windows without address or status bars by changing Internet setting. (Go to the Tools Internet Options Security tab Click the Custom level… button Select Enable for the Allow websites to open windows
without address or status bars option.)

NOTES:
When running WebGuard in the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system, it is recommended that you
start Internet Explorer with elevated administrator permissions. Click the right mouse button on the Internet
Explorer icon and select the Run as administrator option from the context menu. Otherwise, some functions
of the WebGuard might be limited.
There might be a problem with screen display or screen update due to low image transmission speed
when using the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. In this situation, it is recommended you disable
the Auto Tuning capability of your computer. Run the Command Prompt with elevated administrator
permissions (Go to the Start Menu Accessories Command Prompt Click the right mouse button
and select the Run as administrator option). Then enter “netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disable”

DVR NAME SERVICE (DVRNS)
Overview
Using Static IP addresses in LAN/WAN networks requires high management overhead and increases the
cost burden to users. Therefore, it has become essential for DVRs to support Dynamic IP addresses in
ADSL/VDSL networks using DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). This reduces cost burdens
and increases cost effectiveness for system users. Use the following steps to set up a system using DVRNS.
23
User’s Manual
System Configuration
STEP 1 (DVR DVRNS Server): Register the unit
name and IP address of the DVR during the NETWORK
– DVRNS setup. This unit name and IP address will
be registered on the DVRNS server directly.
STEP 2 (WebGuard DVRNS Server): Request
the IP address of the DVR using the registered unit name
of the DVR you want to connect to.
STEP 3 (DVRNS Server WebGuard): The
DVRNS server notifies WebGuard of the requested
IP address.
STEP 4 (WebGuard DVR): Connect to the target DVR using the IP address returned from the DVRNS
server.
NOTE: You should follow steps 2 to 4 whenever connecting to the DVR because the DVR name and IP
address might change at any time.
CLIP PLAYER
Disconnect the USB device from the DVR and connect it
to your PC. You do not need to install any special software
on your personal computer to review the video. The copied
clip contains the Player program and can be viewed on
computers running Microsoft Windows 2000, XP or Vista.

NOTES:
It is suggested that the computer used for the Player program has at least an 800MHz Pentium III. If
your CPU is slower than this, video clips recorded at maximum speed with very high image quality will
be played back slowly. Also DirectX 9.0 or higher is required to install, and the VGA card with 16MB or
higher video RAM is recommended for proper operation.
Proper image display depends on the display settings of your PC. If you are experiencing display problems,
click the right mouse button on the background screen and select Properties Settings then set the
Color quality to “32 bit”. Then select Advanced Troubleshoot, and then set the Hardware Acceleration
to “Full”. Please make sure that DirectX version 9.0 or higher has been installed if the display problem
continues. To check the version of DirectX, click Start RUN and type “dxdiag” then hit the enter key
which will display DirectX Diagnostic Tool dialog box. Then move to the Display tab and make sure
DirectDraw Acceleration is set to “Enabled”. Test DirectDraw by selecting the DirectDraw Test button.
Please check the driver version of the video card and update it to the latest version available. If you
still have display problems after changing all display settings as described above, try replacing the video
card. Video cards with an ATI chipset are recommended.
If the VGA card or monitor does not support 800x600 video resolution, Full Screen might not be displayed
properly. If this happens, press the ESC key on your PC keyboard to return to the normal screen mode.

User’s Manual
TIME OVERLAP
If the DVR’s time and date have been reset to a time that is earlier than the existing recorded video, it is
possible for the DVR to have more than one video stream in the same time range. In this case, you can search
overlapping video streams individually by selecting a specific segment.
For example, when the DVR has recorded video from one to five
o’clock and the user changes the time backward from five to three
o’clock and then continues recording until six o’clock, there will
be two video streams and segments from three to five o’clock.
You can search overlapping video streams by selecting a specific time or time range.
If you want to search recorded video at four o’clock during the overlapping time range
using a search menu such as Go to the Date/Time, select the segment you want to search.
If you want to search recorded video from four to five o’clock during the overlapping time
range using a search menu such as Event Log Search, it is possible for the DVR to have
two overlapping start and stop times. You will be asked to select one of the overlapping
start and stop times from the search time ranges as follows:
From four o’clock of the first segment to five o’clock of the first segment
From four o’clock of the first segment to five o’clock of the second segment
From four o’clock of the second segment to five o’clock of the second segment
