FEATURES AND SPECIFICATIONS
n Supports 320x240, 704x480 (NTSC), 352x288, 704x576 (PAL) standard resolutions.
The QSDT8PCRC, QSDT8PCDP and QSDT16PCRP 8- and 16-Channel cards allow you
to add surveillance capabilities to your computer. They use a H.264 hardware compression
format which provides maximum file storage with the least amount of signal loss possible.
Monitor and record up to four channels in CIF resolution with synchronous audio and video
compression and transmission. Remotely monitor your system through your network, over the
Internet or using select mobile devices.
n Image color is adjustable for each channel, including contrast, brightness, hue and
saturation.
The first chapters will cover the installation of your card as well as any connections you may
wish to make. Later chapters will guide you through the installation of the SuperDVR 6.3
software which supports these cards along with how to operate the hardware and software
together.
Please make sure you operate the products strictly in accordance with applicable laws along
with following the guidance of this manual to maintain the stability of your digital surveillance
system.
n H.264 compression format greatly reduces HDD usage.
n Powerful video playback functions, including pause, stop, fast-forward, single-frame play
and image capture.

This product offers the following features:
Motion detection mode
Motion detection areas are adjustable with a maximum 16 areas for each channel. Users can
also set motion detection sensitivity for each channel. The system begins to record only when
motion is detected on the channel and after motion stops it will stop recording after a certain
time period, which is adjustable by users.
n Supports alarm pre-record.
n Supports buzzer, e-mail alarm out.
n Can greatly decrease fragmented files while using NTFS partition.
n User-friendly graphical user interface.
Sensor alarm record mode
The system has an external alarm dongle which enables the system to support alarm input
and output.
Recycling record mode
Users can set recording storage sequence for hard drive partitions. The recording storage will
automatically switch to the next partition when the current one is full. If all the partitions are full
and recycling record mode is enabled, the oldest recorded data will be covered by new data.
Users can also set hard drive minimum storage alarm. Then once the present storage space
is less than the minimum storage and recycling record mode is not enabled, recording will
automatically stop.
P.T.Z control function
Supports many protocols: PelcoD, PelcoP, DSCP, DH-SD, Lilian, Minking, Neon, Star, VIDO,
and VISCA. Users can control multiple speed domes and integrative cameras, including pan,
tilt, zoom, focus and iris adjustment for P.T.Z devices. Supports preset points and auto scan.

PICTURE 6-4
6.2 RECORDING MODES
As mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, there are four different recording modes;
scheduled recording, manual recording, motion detection and sensor alarm. Motion Detection
record mode and Sensor Alarm record mode are called Alarm Record.
MANUAL RECORD MODE
STEP 1. Select the camera in the pull down list.
STEP 2. Select Clear
STEP 3. Click and drag the cursor in the camera view. You will see a green box appear
which shows the motion detection area. You can select a maximum of 16 customized
areas for each channel.
Manual Record mode is the most commonly used recording mode. If a special event occurs,
users can select this recording mode and record immediately. It may be desirable to increase
the framerate and recording quality in such cases - especially for shorter duration recordings.
If you intend to have the cameras recording non-stop, then it is advisable to reduce the frame
rate to conserve hard drive space.
SCHEDULE RECORDING
SENSOR ALARM RECORD MODE
Schedule Configuration
Users can use sensors to trigger sensor alarm recording on relative channels. At that time, the
record status indicator light will turn red.
Clicking on the calendar icon will
change the display window to the
Schedule Configuration page.
MOTION DETECTION RECORD MODE
This will enable the system to detect image changes and begin to record by activating motion
detection and motion alarm recording. For instance, somebody opens the door, and the
system detects image changes from the camera and begins to record, then users can play
back the recorded file and find out who opened the door. When there is no movement, the
system will not record which saves system resources, and makes it easier to find recorded
events. The indicator light color in the record status panel will be yellow.
Users can set working schedule for all of the recording modes in ‘Schedule Configuration’.
The dark green light in record status panel shows the corresponding channel is in Schedule
Record mode. Users can change record mode to manual record at any time, and the dark
green light will change into a light green light.
Each camera can be scheduled to record
based on motion detection, sensor alarm,
and time of day. Sensor alarm mode has
highest priority and it will take precedence
regardless of what other modes the camera
is also set for.
PICTURE 6-5
NOTE! When configuring for Motion Detection recording, you will need to
do so in three areas:
1. Select Motion Detection for the desired channels in Basic Configuration.
2. Configure the specific areas to detect motion in Motion Detection
Configuration.
3. Set the schedule for these cameras to operate in this mode in Schedule Configuration.
28
29
CHAPTER 6 RECORDING, PLAYBACK AND RECORD SEARCH
If users use multiple cameras to record, every camera works separately and the recorded files
are also saved separately. The parameters, i.e. camera ID, record date/time, and record mode
are all saved together with the recorded file.
To customize the detection area for a certain channel:
Schedules can be set individually for each day. The cameras are default configured to
be recording in both Motion Detection and Schedule recording 24/7 and will have fulllength colored bars in the schedule window. Above each window is a 0-24 with segments
corresponding to each hour of the day. This will show when a camera has been scheduled to
record in that mode.
NOTE! When setting up your recording schedule for the first time, it is faster
and easier to begin by selecting the mode’s schedule window and selecting
Delete All to clear the schedule before making changes.
To create a new schedule;
STEP 1. Select the camera name in one
of the three record mode groups.
STEP 2. Click on Add.
6.3 RECORDING TO HARD DRIVE
Users can determine where recorded files will be saved on their hard drive(s). In addition,
the recorder can save to a series of drives or partitions by automatically jumping to the next
partition when the current one is full. If all the partitions are full and Recycling Record mode
has been enabled prior to recording by checking the box below the Storage Disk list, the new
data will overwrite the oldest recorded data automatically.
The destination drive(s) for recordings which also applies to images captured using
the Snapshot button - is set in the Basic
Configuration window. You can also set
a HDD minimum storage alarm which will
cause the system to alert you once the that
threshold has been reached. If the present
storage space is less than the minimum
storage needed and Recycling Recordings is
not selected, the recording will automatically
stop.
PICTURE 6-6
WARNING! You should have your files record to a disk or partition OTHER
than your “C” drive. This will avoid issues with the Recycling function.
STEP 3. This will open a new window.
Set the start time and end time along
with the day(s) to which you wish the
schedule to apply.
STEP 4. Click OK to exit the Add
window.
PICTURE 6-7
Your new schedule will appear as a series of colored bars corresponding to the day(s) and
time(s) you’ve selected.
To edit a schedule, select a block of time and click Edit. You will be able to adjust the
schedule for that day and any other day in the same manner you used to create the schedule
in the Add window.
NOTE! When adding a new schedule, it should not duplicate an existing
schedule as this may cause a system error.
To add another block of time, such as an evening recording schedule to go with an early
morning schedule, you will need to repeat the process.
Clicking on Delete will remove a specific block of time from a specific day’s schedule.
Copy To allows you to apply the settings for one camera to another camera as well.

57
STEP 7. You will now be returned to the main window of the program. The ports you
added will now show on the list. Click on Update Router at the bottom.
If for some reason, a port or ports that you forwarded are not listed in the Router and if you
see a message in the Scripts list on the left side of the window stating that the port already
exists (Red box in Picture 9-16), then you will need to change the Port 80 to 85 in the DVR
and start over again.
PICTURE 9-16
PICTURE 9-14
STEP 8. You will see the “Updating is in progress” message. Please wait until you see it
say DONE at the bottom.

STEP 10. Click on Begin.
PART 4: SETTING UP DMZ IN ROUTER 2
If you receive a message stating that the port is online and can be reached, then you have
set it up correctly.
NOTE! You will only need to proceed with this section if you detected a
second router in Section 2.
STEP 1. Login into Router 1 by putting
the IP of Router 1 into the Internet
Explorer browser, as in the example
shown in Picture 9-19 where the IP
address of Router 1 is 192.168.0.1
STEP 2. Find the status page on the
router settings that shows the WAN/
Internet IP address and write it down
this WAN IP address.
STEP 3. Log into the Router 2 by putting
the IP of Router 2 into the Internet
Explorer browser, as in example
shown in Picture 9-19 where the IP
address of Router 2 is 192.168.1.1
STEP 4. Find the DMZ page in the router
settings.
STEP 5. Enter the WAN IP for Router 1
into the DMZ page and enable DMZ.
PICTURE 9-19
PICTURE 9-18
To connect to your DVR from the Internet, you will need to put the Internet IP address shown
after “Your Internet Address:” message into your Internet Explorer browser or access program window.
STEP 6. Save your changes.
You have forwarded the ports on the router to which the DVR is connected, to the IP address
of the DVR, and set the primary router to pass the connection to this router.
IMPORTANT! Do not use 255 or higher to complete your IP address as these
addresses are reserved for other devices and components.
60
61
CHAPTER 9 REMOTE SURVEILLANCE & PLAYBACK
NOTE! The default value is 80. If port 80 is already occupied by another device
on the network, then another port will need to be selected. Choose another
number in the same range; 81-89. In this case, you will have to add the port to
the IP address when entering it into the Internet Explorer window. For example,
if the port is now 82, then you will need to enter http://192.168.0.25:82
NOTE! If you do not have a DMZ setting in the router, check to see if there
is a Bridge setting. If so, then use the Bridge setting instead of DMZ.
9.3 DDNS (DYNAMIC DOMAIN NAME SERVICE)
9.4 ACCESSING THE DVR USING INTERNET EXPLORER
You can access the system over the Internet using a static or dynamic IP address. However,
your service provider can change this dynamic address from time to time. When it changes,
you will have to return to www.MyIPAaddress.com to get the new public IP address.
There are two solutions to this problem. The first would be to obtain a static IP address from
your ISP – which can be expensive. A second – and free – option is to use a dynamic domain
name service (DDNS) to get a domain name that can be linked to your dynamic IP address. In
addition to automatically keeping up with the changes in the address, you will now be able to
enter a domain name rather than a string of digits when accessing the DVR in Internet Explorer.
Once you have configured the network settings on the DVR to match those on your router
and forwarded the ports needed by the DVR to enable remote access over the Internet, you
will be ready to remotely view your cameras using a webcam program based on an ActiveX
control. For this to work, you will have to enable the ActiveX control options that are built into
Internet Explorer. It is strongly suggested that you be running the latest version of Internet
Explorer (currently IE8). The instructions below will describe the process using that version of
the browser. Instructions for users with IE6 or 7 are available in the Resources library of our
Technical Support page.
We recommend using www.MyQ-See.com or www.DynDNS.com as the DVR has been
already configured to accept account information from these two services.
USER ACCOUNT CONTROL FOR WINDOWS VISTA AND WINDOWS 7
NOTE! Before setting up DDNS, you must have previously set up Port
Forwarding as described in the previous section.
SETTING UP DDNS
Windows Vista
The following instructions are for setting up DDNS with MyQ-See, instructions for DynDNS are
available on their website.
STEP 1. Using a computer that is
connected to the same router as the
DVR, use Internet Explorer to go to
www.MyQ-See.com
STEP 2. Select User Accounts and
Family Safety.
PICTURE 9-24
PICTURE 9-20
STEP 3. Select “Add or Remove User
Account.”
PICTURE 9-25
STEP 4. Select the desired user account.
PICTURE 9-21
STEP 5. Once you have completed steps 1-4, click on the link on the MyQ-See website
to download the MyQ-See software program onto your computer and install it so that
it can monitor the IP address assigned to your account. The computer must always be
on in order to update the link to the public IP address when it changes.
62
CHAPTER 9 REMOTE SURVEILLANCE & PLAYBACK
STEP 4. Once you have obtained your
domain name, you will need to
configure the DVR for access using it.
STEP 1. Open the Control Panel
(accessible by clicking on the
Windows icon in the lower left of your
screen.
PICTURE 9-23
STEP 2. Fill out the required information
to register and click the Submit
button at the bottom of the screen.
STEP 3. The next page will ask you
to create a domain name. Domain
names must begin with a letter (a-z)
or a number (0-9) and cannot contain
a hyphen. Once you’ve decided
upon a name, click on the “Request
Domain” button. If it is available you
will see a confirmation screen along
with the IP address associated with it.
Confirm that this matches the number
obtained in Network Settings. Your
domain name will look like this: http://example.myq-see.com

Users can select the percent of used disk space to set up “disk shortage alarm.” You can
input percent manually or choose the selectable options such as, 25%, 50%, and 75% to
set up. For example, if selecting 50%, an alarm will warn you when your disk space usage
reaches 50%.
It is recommended that you install SuperDVR onto the partition with your
Windows system (normally C:), and save recorded files on a different partition.
97
How to set auto reboot function
When a Microsoft Windows system runs continuously for a couple of days the system may
become unstable; therefore, it is suggested you restart the computer every few days.
In the basic configuration, input Windows user name and password (It is not SuperDVR user
name and password), and select time interval, then the Windows system will automatically
restart according to the set time.
If the Windows system shutdown unexpectedly, i.e. power supply is cut off, when computer
reboots, SuperDVR system will automatically restart, and keep the settings you have entered.
TIP
Users do not need to enable auto reboot function, but it’s suggested to input
the Windows user name and password in the relative area, therefore when the
system shuts down unexpectedly, users don’t need to input Windows and
SuperDVR user names and passwords.
How to quickly setup the schedule record function
Press ‘Shift’ or ‘Ctrl’ key, and draw the cursor in corresponding areas to make schedules for
multiple channels.
What are the byte rates for different image qualities from highest to normal?
The frame rate is 30 fps, bit rate for the highest image quality is about 1.2MByte/s, and for the
lowest image quality is about 50KByte/s.
The frame rate seems to be lower than what I set
There is frame loss in image switch therefore the real recording frame rate is relatively lower
than the theoretic value.
Why can’t I select more channels to backup?
Please draw the mouse in the channel selection area, or utilize Shift and Ctrl key for assistance.
How to Use Network Function
How to monitor on the client-side
First enable ‘Web cameras service’ in basic configuration.
Input the server Internet address in IE browser on the client-side, and the necessary webcam
driver will be downloaded automatically, then users need to install the driver. After accessing
the webcam main interface, click ‘Login’ and input user name and password to log in the
system.
Why can’t I download the client-side software?
The possible causes:
Why can’t I see the images?
The possible causes:
•
The VGA card is too outdated or does not have enough Video RAM.
•
You need to install a newer version of DirectDraw.
•
SuperDVR cannot run on a version of Windows before Win2000 or on server versions
of Windows
•
Data port or command port is conflicting with other network services (please see section
7.2)
•
The user is connected to Internet through LAN, and the network administrator has not
enabled corresponding data port or command port.
•
The client-side has installed firewall software that may stop video transmission.
•
H.264 codec has not been installed properly, please download new version of Webcam
(newer version of SuperDVR).
•
Slow network speed.
What should I do if the Internet speed is quite slow?
The more channels opened, and the slower the video transmission speed, therefore try to use
one channel display mode when the network speed is slow.
TIP
There may be some surplus channels that have no video input. Switching off
the channels will help to improve transmission speed. (Refer to ‘4.1 Basic
Configuration’ about switching on/off channels.)
Why can’t I start Webcam server or RPB server?
Possible causes:
Other software is using these ports. If so, please change Webcam ports configuration or stop
other software.
How much hard drive space do the recorded files take up?
To use the table below, find the picture quality setting you are using and multiply the used
space figure by the number of cameras you are recording. Divide the result into the amount
of hard drive space available and you will get the number of hours you can record on the
available hard drive space.
Example using medium quality with 4 cameras with 200GB available:
•
The client-side computer is not properly connected to Internet or LAN.
•
The server-end has not enabled ‘Web Camera Service’.
•
The default Http port is 80. It may be conflict with other Web servers, for example IIS. If
so, please change to another port

The possible causes:
48.12MB X 4 Cam = 192.48MB/HR, 200GB/192.48 = 1064 HRs = 44 day
99
Other Questions
Why doesn’t the computer display work, or why can’t I access Window system?
The capture card may not be well installed. Unplug the card and try it again.
IMPORTANT! Please unplug the power plug of the computer before
re-installing the card to avoid damaging the motherboard chip set.
Why I can’t find the recorded files?
You do not have enough hard drive space available for recording.
Why is the screen’s display unstable with dithering and water-wave images?
Possible causes:
•
Camera does not have enough power
•
There is external electromagnetic disturbance, or electrostatic disturbance on camera’s
BNC connector. Use a shielded RG59 or RG6 cable.
•
You may need to update the driver for the video card on the system.
•
Problem with the video card. Try reinstalling the video card, or changing the video card.
Why does it delay playing back, and why is it slow to close and open the driver?
Possible causes:
•
Problem with the Windows system. Try rebooting the computer.
•
There are too many recorded files or too many fragments on the HDD, therefore it takes
time to search for the files, you need delete the files that you don’t need, or need to run
disk defragmenter.
•
Capture card problem.
•
Computer hardware system is too outdated (processor too slow, not enough memory, or
not enough free space on hard drive).
Precautions on changing system time
The SuperDVR system provides the retrieving mechanism for video files, which must take
the system time as a retrieving reference. To change the computer time after installation
will create a high risk of wrong time reference.
•
•
Before SuperDVR is used, it must be confirmed whether the current computer time is
correct.
•
Deactivate computer auto time updating function of system.
•
Make sure the motherboard of the computer is in normal state.
If system time must be changed, please do following preparations first
If new time is later than current computer time (for example, change 2006/01/01 0:0:0
(current system time) to 2007/01/01 0:0:0 (target time)), the change can be made directly.
If new time is before the current computer time (for example, change 2007/01/01 0:0:0
(current system time) to 2006/01/01 0:0:0 (target time)), first stop the video recording, backup
all video data. Turn off SuperDVR, change computer time, and re-start SuperDVR.
How to use REPAIRDB to repair SuperDVR database

After installing VISTA system, you should enter the Start menu to choose ‘Control
Panel’. Select ‘System and Maintenance’ link. And select ‘Power’ option in ‘System and
Maintenance’ window. Finally, Select the ‘High Performance Change Plan Setting’ option.
Why can’t I play back?
Windows Media Player has been damaged, or decoder has not been installed properly. It is
suggested you reinstall the player program or download a codec pack from K-lite
www.free-codecs.com/download/K_lite_codec_pack.htm or www.divx.com.
