Connecting Power Supply
We recommend you use UPS (uninterrupted power supply) to guarantee steady operation, combo DVR life span,
and other peripheral equipment’s operation such as cameras. We also strongly recommend that you plug the DVR
and cameras into a transient voltage surge protector (UL-1449 rating). Look for a clamping voltage of 330 or lower,
Joule rating of at least 400, and a response time of 10 nanoseconds or less.
3.5.1 Connecting Video Input
The video input interface is BNC. The input video formats include: PAL/NTSC (See Figure 3-2)
The video signal complies with North American NTSC video standards.
We recommend setting your video up in an area with low video input signal distortion and interference in an area
with suitable lighting.
Ensure the stability and reliability of camera signal:
The camera should be positioned so that direct sunlight does not shine into it, and away from flammable, explosive
substances. Cameras and DVR should share the same grounding if possible to ensure normal operation of
cameras.
Ensure stability and reliability of the cables
If you are running cables more than 200 feet or installing cable in walls, we recommend using high quality shielded
RG59 cables. If you plan on running cables over 800 feet, we recommend using a higher quality shielded cable
such as RG6.
For distances above 1,800 feet, we recommend using fiber optic cable to ensure video quality.
Keep the video signal away from any strong electromagnetic interference.
Make sure cables are well connected to DVR
The cable should be fixed firmly to the BNC connectors on the dongle.
Figure 3-2
3.5.2 Connecting Video Output
Video output includes BNC (PAL/NTSC BNC(1.0VP- P, 75Ω)output and HDMI output.
System supports BNC and HDMI output at the same time. (See Figure 3-3)
 When hooking your system up to a PC monitor through the BNC video out port you will need to use a
composite to VGA converter box. We do not recommend attaching to RCA ports on a TV through the BNC
output because it can damage the TV, DVR, or both.

Connecting Audio Input & Output, Bidirectional Audio
3.6.1 Audio Input
This product uses BNC ports. Audio transmission is similar to video transmission. Try to avoid interference, keep
contacts snug and dry, and away from high tension current.
Figure 3-4
3.6.2 Audio Output
The audio output signal parameter is usually over 200mv 1KΩ (BNC). It can directly connect to low impedance
earphone, active sound box or amplifier-driven audio output device.(See Figure 3-5)
If the sound box and the pick-up cannot be separated spatially, it is easy to get reverb or squeaking feedback. If
feedback occurs, try these tips:
 Use better sound pick-up with better directing properties.
 Reduce the volume of the sound box.
 Using more sound-absorbing materials can reduce voice echo and improve acoustics environment
 Adjust the layout to reduce occurrence of squeaking

How to connect PTZ camera
a. Ensure the camera has the same grounding with combo DVR otherwise you may not control the PTZ. Shielded
twisted wire is recommended and the shielded layer is used to connect to the ground.
b. For excessively long signal wires, 120Ω should be parallel connected between A, B lines on the far end to
reduce reflection and guarantee the signal quality.
c. 485 A, B” of combo DVR cannot parallel connect with “485 port” of other device.
d. The voltage between of A, B lines of the camera should be less than 5v.

When the combo DVR receives a camera control command, it transmits that command up the cable to the PTZ
camera. RS485 is a single-direction protocol; the PTZ device can’t return any data to the unit. To enable the
operation, connect the data cable from the PTZ camera to the RS485 (A, B) input on the combo DVR. See Figure 39.
Since RS485 is disabled by default for each camera, you must enable the PTZ settings first. This combo DVR
supports multiple protocols such as Pelco-D, Pelco-P, as well as most common protocols (26 total).
To connect PTZ cameras to the DVR:
1. Connect RS485 A, B on the DVR rear panel.
2. Connect the other end of the cable to the proper pins in the connector on the camera.
3. Please follow the instructions to configure a camera to enable each PTZ device on the combo DVR.

7.1 Network Connection
BEFORE YOU CAN ACCESS THE DVR REMOTELY YOU NEED TO SETUP THE NETWORK CONFIGURATION ON
THE DVR TO WORK WITH YOUR ROUTER.
PLEASE REFER TO CHAPTER 5 - 5.5.3 Network
Before web operation, please check the following items:
 Network connection is right
 Combo DVR and PC network setup is right. Please refer to network setup (main menu->setting->network)
 Use order ping ***.***.***.***(* combo DVR IP address) to check connection is OK or not. Usually the return TTL
value should be less than 255.
 Open the IE and then input combo DVR IP address.
 System can automatically download latest web control and the new version can overwrite the previous one.
 If you want to un-install the web control, please run uninstall webrec2.0.bat. Or you can go to C:\Program
Files\webrec to remove single folder. Please note, before you un-install, please close all web pages, otherwise
the un-installation might result in error.
7.1.1 Port Forwarding
To access the DVR from a remote computer over the internet you will need to forward port 80 and port 37777
of the Router the DVR is attached to, to the IP address of the DVR. You can get instructions on how to do this
for most popular routers by going to www.portforward.com. Once there, click on the orange “Routers” link in
the second paragraph as shown in Figure 7-1. Find the link of the brand and model of your router from the list
of manufacturers and click the “next button”. From there, click on the orange “Default Guide” link (BLUE box
in Figure 7-2). This will take you to the port forwarding instructions for your router.
When you access the DVR from a remote computer you also need to use a different address in the Internet
Explorer browser window. Instead of entering the IP address of the DVR you need to enter the public IP
address of the router the DVR is attached to. You can get this address by going to www.myipaddress.com from
a computer that is attached to the same router as the DVR. This website will display your address as illustrated
in Figure 7-3. The example below shows an IP Address of 76.254.183.54. Please make sure to take note of the
address that you obtain for your own Router and use it accordingly.

NOTE: If you cannot use HTTP port 80 or 37777 because it is being used by another program, or it is being blocked by your service provider, you
can use another port in the same range. If you do so then you need to forward the IP address of the router to the other port, change the port in the
DVR NETWORK settings and you need to add the port number after the IP address. For example, if you set the HTTP port as 82, you need to enter
the IP address as xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:82. Where the Xs are the numbers of the IP address you received from www.myipaddress.com
User name and password here are the same as what you use on the DVR.
7.1.2 Pop-Ups and ActiveX Controls
To access the DVR through Internet Explorer after you have configured your network settings on your DVR to
match the settings of your Router and forwarded your ports as discussed above, you will need to modify your
browser controls to allow Pop-ups. To do this, go to the Internet Explorer tool bar and select the "tools"
option (RED box in Figure 7-4), then select the "Pop up Blocker" option and select "Turn Off Pop-up Blocker”
(BLUE arrows in Figure 7-4). You will also need to enable Active X controls. To do this, go to the Internet
Explorer tool bar and select the "tools" option, then "Internet Options"(GREEN arrow in Figure 7-4). This will
open an Internet Options dialog box as shown in Figure 7-5. Through here, choose the "Security" tab (RED box
in Figure 7-5), then click the "Custom Level" button (GREEN box in Figure 7-5), then click on OK (BLUE arrow in
Figure 7-5). This will open a dialog box as shown in Figure 7-6. Once here, scroll down to the ActiveX Controls
and Plug Ins and make sure they are all set to either prompt (BLUE arrows Figure 7-6) or enabled (RED arrows
Figure 7-6).

MY Q-SEE DDNS
QC40198 User Manual
8. SETUP MYQ-SEE DDNS
Dynamic Domain Name Service (DDNS) provides the capability for a networked device using the Internet
Protocol Suite to notify a DDNS host to change the active DNS configuration of its hostnames or addresses.
This is a useful feature that your Q-See DVR system is equipped with and can be helpful in avoiding any issues
that might occur due to frequent or unplanned changes to your Public/WAN IP address. Enabling DDNS on
your Q-See DVR system will allow you to connect to your device through a DDNS host such as myq-see.com.
In order to facilitate this ability on your Q-See DVR system, you must first set up Port Forwarding as directed in
the User Manual for this device. Once you have enabled Port Forwarding, you can configure your DDNS
information by following these steps:
a. Using a computer that is connected to the same network as your Q-See DVR, use your IE Browser to go
to http://myq-see.com.
b. Click on the New User? Link at the bottom of your page (http://myq-see.com/reg.asp).
c. Complete the registration process by following the on-screen directions and click the [Submit] button
at the bottom of your screen (Figure 8-1).

d. The next screen will ask you to create a domain name. Domain names must start with an (a-z) or
(0-9) and cannot contain a hyphen. Once you choose your domain name, click on the [Request
Domain] button. This will generate a confirmation screen which tells you if your Domain name is
available and list an IP address (Figure 8-2). Verify that this is your current IP Address by going to
www.myipaddress.com and checking that it is the same address listed in your confirmation screen
(Figure 2).
e. Once you have completed steps a-d, go to the DVR and go to Menu→ Settings, Network (Figure 83).
Figure 8-3
f. Clicking on Network (RED box in Figure 8-3) will generate a Network settings dialog box as
illustrated in Figure 8-4. Checking the [DDNS] box (RED box in Figure 7-4) will display a DDNS setting
dialog box as illustrated in Figure 8-5.

In the formula: d i means the bit rate, unit Kbit/s
Step 2: After video time requirement is confirmed, according to Formula (2) to calculate the storage capacity mi ,
which is storage of each channel needed unit Mbyte.
mi = qi × hi × Di
(2)
In the formula:
hi means the recording time for each day (hour)
Di means number of days for which the video shall be kept
Step 3: According to Formula (3) to calculate total capacity (accumulation) qT that is needed for all channels in
the DVR during scheduled video recording.
