PLAYBACK FOLLOWING TIME CHANGE
The DVR uses the time and date to index video on the hard disk drive so you can find it later.
Changing the time can cause the DVR to work improperly, when you try to play back video. If
you set the hour ahead, this is not a problem. But, if you set the hour back, there wi ll be more
than one recording with the same time stamp.
Such as during the October Daylight Saving Time changeover, if you try to search for video
between 1 am and 2 am, the recorder may not operate properly because there will be two
hours of recorded video during this time period. To view video during this overlapping time
period, you must start playback before 1 am, then recorder will play both hours between 1
am and 2 a.m.
You cannot do a backward search through the overlapping time. But, you can do forward
search.

With in the Network menu the DDNS (Dynamic Domain Named Server), IP addresses, NTP
and Live can be set.
4-1. DDNS
What is DDNS?
DDNS is a service that maps Internet domain names to IP addresses. DDNS serves a similar
purpose to DNS: DDNS allows anyone hosting a Web or FTP server to advertise a public
name to prospective users.
Unlike DNS that only works with static IP addresses, DDNS works with dynamic IP
addresses, such as those assigned by an ISP or other DHCP server.
What this means is that the DVR does not need a Static IP address to be available for
viewing remotely over the World Wide Web.
Please refer to Appendixes 4 on how to set up the DDNS service.

The Domain section of the menu will display the MAC address of the unit ( 16 digit number).
Note:
1. DYNAMIC IP must be set to: YES

and the DVR Port set in the IP set section
3. When connecting to the unit from the client software, the address to enter will have to be
