Remote Control Troubleshooting:
Make sure you have installed batteries properly in the remote control. And you have to aim the remote control at the IR
receiver in the front panel.
If there is no response after you press any button on the remote, follow the procedure below to troubleshoot.
Steps:
1.
Go to Menu > Other Settings > Display > Advance Setting by operating the mouse.
2.
Check and remember device ID#. The default ID# is 255. This ID# is valid for all the IR remote controls.
3.
Press the DEV key on the remote control.
4.
Enter the device ID# in step 2.
5.
Press the ENTER button on the remote.
If there is still no response from the remote, please check the following:
1.
Batteries are installed correctly and the polarities of the batteries are not reversed.
2.
Batteries are fresh and not out of charge.
3.
IR receiver is not obstructed.
If the remote still can’t function properly, please change a remote and try again, or contact the device provider.
1.4 USB Mouse Operations
A regular 3-button (Left/Right/Scroll-wheel) USB mouse can also be used with this device. To use a USB mouse:
1.
Plug USB mouse into one of the USB interfaces on the front panel of the device.
13
Mobile Network Video Recorder User Manual
2.
The mouse should automatically be detected. If in a rare case that the mouse is not detected, the possible reason may be
that the two devices are not compatible, please refer to the recommended device list from your provider.

1.5 Starting Up and Shutting Down the Device
Two working modes are available for the mobile NVR. The connection of power cables and control interfaces varies from
the device working mode.

Vehicle ignition startup and time-delay shutdown
The mobile NVR starts up when the vehicle ignites and shuts down according to the pre-defined delay time after the vehicle
is off. The startup and shutdown of the device depend on the vehicle ignition signal.

Timing on/off
The mobile NVR starts up or shuts down automatically according to the pre-defined time and the device works separately
from the running status of the vehicle.
1.5.1 Vehicle Ignition Startup and Time-delay Shutdown
The vehicle ignition startup and time-delay shutdown are realized by the vehicle ignition switch, which includes positive
pole ignition switch (providing high level signal when the switch closes) and negative pole ignition switch (providing low
level signal when the switch closes). The wire connection of the device varies from different vehicle ignition switch.
For detailed time settings of time-delay shutdown, see Chapter 6.1

Please contact the vehicle manufacturer for the connection information of starting switch.

The vehicle ignition switch, also called car key, controls the startup and shutdown of the vehicle. Most of the cars
adopts positive pole ignition switch currently.

Mobile Network Video Recorder User Manual
Positive pole ignition switch
Figure 1. 4 Connection of Positive Pole Ignition Switch
Ignition switch is connected to the positive pole of DC+12/24V of vehicle batteries. Please make sure that the connection is
correct, and then perform the following steps:
Steps:
1.
Connect the “DC IN +” of mobile NVR to the positive pole of vehicle batteries, jumping over the switch of normal
vehicle power.
2.
Connect the “DC IN -” and “KEY -” of mobile NVR to the negative pole of vehicle batteries.
3.
Connect the “KEY +” of mobile NVR to the vehicle ignition switch.
The normal vehicle power refers to the main power of the vehicle power supply system. After the vehicle is off, the
normal vehicle power still provides direct-current source for the other devices inside and generally a main switch is
used to turn on/off it.
Negative pole ignition switch
Figure 1. 5 Connection of Negative Pole Ignition Switch
Ignition switch is connected to the negative pole of DC+12/24V of vehicle batteries. Please make sure that the connection is
15
Mobile Network Video Recorder User Manual
correct, and then perform the following steps:
Steps:
1.
Connect the “DC IN +” and “KEY +” of mobile NVR to the positive pole of vehicle batteries, jumping over the switch
of normal vehicle power.
2.
Connect the “DC IN -” to the negative pole of vehicle batteries.
3.
Connect the “KEY -” of mobile NVR to the vehicle ignition switch.
1.5.2 Timing On/Off
Figure 1. 6 Timing On/Off
Steps:
1.
Connect the “DC IN +” and “KEY +” of mobile NVR to the positive pole of vehicle batteries.
2.
Connect the “DC IN -” and “KEY -” of mobile NVR to the negative pole of vehicle batteries.
For detailed time settings of time-delay shutdown, see Chapter 6.1
1.6 Alarm Input / Output Connection
1.6.1 Alarm Input Connection
DS-M7508HNI series mobile NVR adopts the high/low-level electrical signals triggering (high level: 6~36 VDC; low level:
0~5 VDC) to realize alarm input. And in order to avoid error report caused by voltage fluctuation, no alarm will be triggered
by voltage ranging of 5~ 6VDC.
Figure 1. 7 Alarm Input Connection

3G: 3G refers to the 3rd-generation telecommunication technology which is the high speed transmission of the cell
data. The 3G service can transmit sound and other data simultaneously and the bitrate is up to hundreds kbps.

DHCP: DHCP is the acronym of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, and it is one of the TCP/IP protocol stacks, it
is used to assign the dynamic IP address to the host on the network.

Dual Stream: Dual stream is a technology used to record high resolution video locally while transmitting a lower
resolution stream over the network.

GNSS: A satellite navigation system is a system of satellites that provide autonomous geo-spatial positioning with
global coverage. It allows small electronic receivers to determine their location (longitude, latitude, and altitude) to
high precision (within a few meters) using time signals transmitted along a line of sight by radio from satellites. The
signals also allow the electronic receivers to calculate the current local time to high precision, which allows time
synchronization. A satellite navigation system with global coverage may be termed GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite
System).

G-Sensor: G-sensor (Gravity-sensor) can sense the change of the accelerated force, such as the shaking, free falling
and lifting. And those changes of the accelerated force can be sensed by the G-sensor in a means of electrical signals,
and then link certain action according to the changes of the electrical signals. When applied in the hard disk
protection, G-Sensor can check the current status of the hard disk in case of the affection of the R/W function by the
sudden change of the accelerated force.

NTP: NTP is Network Time Protocol, and it is a protocol used to synchronize the computer time.

Sensor-In: Sensor-In is a built-in module on the mobile NVR used to record the movement information of the vehicle,
such as the braking, left-turning and right0turning and so on. The information can be used for analysis of an accident.

Transparent Channel: Transparent channel is a mechanism which analyzes the IP datagram and sends it by the serial
interface. It extends the control distance of the serial devices and for the user, only the point to point transmission is
seen and the actual transmission is ignored.

VPDN: Virtual Private Dial-up Network is a network that uses primarily public telecommunication infrastructure,
such as the internet, to provide remote office or travelling users’ access to a central organization network, such as the
ISP private network, financial network and so on.

WiFi: WiFi is a mechanism of the wireless connecting electronic devices. A device enabled with WI-FI such as PC,
