the video automatically if you set this option as AUTO-DETECT, you can also set the video standard manually.
3.2.3 SETUP-REC: Setup the parameter of recording (Fig 3.2.13 Setup record)
REC-PROPERTY: contains REC RESOLUTION, QUALITY and RATE (Fig 3.2.14 Setup record
property).
REC RESOLUTION: The higher the resolution, clearer the picture. The resolution from low to high is:
PAL: 360x288 CIF, 720x288, HalfD1, 720x576, D1; NTSC: 360x240 CIF, 720x240 HalfD1, 720x480 D1.
QUALITY: There are four options to choose from: low, normal, high and best. Higher the quality value,
better the picture.
RATE: The frame rate. If you choose 8, the picture recording rate is 8 frames per second.
The maximum of RATE is different when the REC RESOLUTION is different. For example:
If the record resolution is 720x576(PAL)/720x480(NTSC), there are three frame rates to choose from: 0, 1,
2, the maximum is 2.
If the record resolution is 720x288(PAL)/720x240(NTSC), there are four frame rates to choose: 0, 1, 2, 4,
the
Page 42
maximum is 4.
If the record resolution is 360x288(PAL)/360x240(NTSC), there are five frame rates to choose: 0, 1, 2, 4,
8, the maximum is 8.
Attention: These three factors above decide the quality of picture and the use ratio of HDD.

3.2.5.1 Monitoring From a Computer on Same Router
On the PC Client, open up the Internet Explorer and enter the IP of the DVR (example http://192.168.0.200), you will get below screen with the
login already filled in, default user name is (netuser) and password (0000). just hit OK and you will be connected.
With this Internet Explorer, you can watch live camera only.
Page 53
3.2.5.2 Monitoring From a Remote Computer
Plug the RJ45 cable from the back of DVR to the Switch / Hub or Router.
By Default the network setting on this DVR are as follow:
IP ADDRESS: 192.168.1.200
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.1
From a PC connected to the same Router, find the IP address by typing IPCONFIG at command prompt. (START-RUN- type in CMD) then type
in IPCONFIG. Find the IP, Gateway and Subnet.
If the IP is 192.168.1.xxx, then you don’t need to do anything else.
But if the IP is something like this: 192.168.0.xxx. Gateway: 192.168.0.1. Then you need to change the IP of DVR by going to the MENU
of DVR and go to NETWORK and push ENTER on STATIC IP and change the IP to: 192.168.000.200 and the Gateway to
192.168.000.001.
Then refer to the manual of your Router, go to the Router Setup and you need to use PORT FORWARDING to forward port 80 and a
range of 7620 – 7624 to the IP: 192.168.0.200. (in the case of our example).
EXAMPLE OF PORT FORWARDING IN THE LINKSYS ROUTER
If you do not have your manual, here is the link where you can find out how to do port forwarding from different brands of Routers:
http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/routerindex.htm
Monitoring the camera on a Remote Computer on Internet
You need to find out the WAN IP of the Router where the DVR connected to by going to www.myipaddress.com. From the PC connected
to the same Router the DVR connected to. Then from the remote location, enter this IP into Internet explorer, or you can use the
Netclient Software.
Page 54
Port 1 is used for logon;
Port 2 is used for controlling the DVR;
Port 3 is used for live surveillance;
Port 4 is used for backup;
Port 5 is used for playing back.
NET CLIENT ID: The default ID is “NetUser”, the user can set other four IDs and passwords for
viewing through the network. (Fig 3.2.31 Net client ID).The login-ID and the password are composed of t
letters or numbers at random. Only the ID set here or the default ID can be used in the remote viewer. The
administrator can restrict the other users to remote viewing through the internet with this configuration
setup.
NET DVR ID: The identification of the DVR. You can edit it at will, it can be composed of numbers,
letters, and symbols.
NET CLIENT ADDR (address) (Fig 3.2.32 Net client address): Fill in these options with the
network information needed. Use the “Up” “Down” “Left” “Right” buttons and ENTER key to fill the blank.
“<000.000.000.000>” means that any IP address can access the DVR through network. The user can set up
ten IP addresses as restricted IPs to access the DVR.
