INTRODUCTION
OVERVIEW
The Guardian DVR TVI (GDVR TVI) system operates with an embedded
LINUX operating system for increased stability. It also uses standard H. 264
video compression and G. 711 audio compression technology which provide
high quality, detailed playback and analysis. TCP/IP network technology
provides the GDVR TVI system with strong network data transmission and
remote control operation.
The GDVR TVI works as a stand-alone surveillance system or as part of
a larger surveillance network. Its professional network video surveillance
software provides strong network communication and telecommunication
ability.
ABOUT THIS MANUAL
This OM provides operating procedures for the GDVR TVI system. The GDVR
TVI models operate identically. There are only 2 differences between the
models: the number of channels and the number of cameras.
GDVR 4T40: 4 outdoor cameras, 4 channels.
GDVR 8T40: 4 outdoor cameras, 8 channels.
•• GDVR 8T80: 8 outdoor cameras, 8 channels.
••
••
All procedures apply to all models unless specifically noted. Some screen
illustrations show entries for all 8 channels and some show for only 4
channels.

SETUP
Live video displays when you power up the system. However, until you log in,
you can only view live video; you cannot access any other system operations.
(For the initial set up, a series of Wizard screens pop up. Change the default
parameters, if necessary, if not, click Next, till you reach the screen that
displays Finish. Click Finish.)
System Login
1. Right-click on the screen. The system menu displays.
2. Select any option. The Login screen displays.
3. The default values are admin (user name) with no password. Select
Login. The system displays the active screen for the selection you
made in the previous step. (See page 54 to set up a password.)
It is strongly recommended that you add a password to the admin
account and to all other accounts you may add to the system.
Required Settings
Set the system date and time so recorded files will be correctly time stamped.
Next, create a password for the “admin” user.
Set Date and Time
The correct date and time are critical for the timestamp on recorded files. If the
timestamp is incorrect, searching for a specific recorded file will be difficult.
From Main Menu/Setup/Basic, select the Date & Time tab. See page 31 for
detailed descriptions of the tab’s fields.
Set Password
Passwords prevent unauthorized access to system configuration screens.
The Admin user originally has no password so you can log into the system for
setup.
15
Uniden strongly recommends that, once you have logged into the
system, you create a password for the Admin user.
From Main Menu/Users/User Management, select the Password field. See
page 54 for a detailed description on how to set up a password.
Default Operation Settings
Uniden’s default settings allow you to begin monitoring your network
immediately. After you have monitored your network for a week or two, you
may find you need to slightly adjust your settings. For example, you may need
to mask areas from motion detection (trees, etc).
16
HOW DO I Search for Files
There are three basic methods for searching files –
i) search for files within a certain time frame,
ii) search a time frame for triggered files, and
iii) search for events through the Information screen.
The first two methods use the Search screen (Main Menu/Search).
1. Select Main Menu/Search. The Search screen displays.
2. Select the Time Search tab to find files within a specific time frame or the
Event Search tab to find motion sensor, sensor-triggered, or all triggered
files.
3. From the Main Menu/Information/Event List, set up the time frames and
cameras you want to search and whether you want to search for Motion,
Sensor, or Video Loss (this screen is similar to the Search screen above).
Select Search tab and records that meet those criteria, display.

HardCALCULATION
Disk
APPENDIXAPPENDIX
C: HARD DISK B:
CAPACITY
Make sure the hard disk is installed and successfully
formatted when install the DVR for the first time.
1. The capacity of the Hard disk itself
We recommend hard disk of 500G~2T for better stability.
2. Total Capacity Option
The calculation formula of hard disk capacity is:
Total capacity(M) =channel numbers*time(hour)*occupied capacity for an
hour(M/hour)
Similarly, the calculation formula of recording time is:
Recording time(hour)=
Total capacity(M)
Occupied Capacity for an hour(M/hour)*the channel numbers
The DVR introduces the H.264 compression technology. Its dynamic range
is very large so the hard disk capacity calculation is based on the stream to
count the estimated values of files created by each channel in an hour.
Example:
For a 500G HDD, real -time CIF recording, it can keep recording for about 25
days. The occupied space of HDD for single channel is 200M/H, if 4channels
real-time CIF recording for 24hours, the estimated recording days is: 500G/
(200M/H*24H*4ch)=26 days
