Chapter 3. Getting Started
(1)
Install a hard disk drive into your DVR (some models come with the HDD already
installed).
(2) Connect the DVR to a TV set.
(3) Connect cameras to the DVR.
(4) Connect the LAN cable from the DVR to a network router
(5) Connect any other accessories (sensors or alarm) if necessary.
(6) Plug the power cord into the power jack on the wall.
(7) Turn on the power switch on the DVR.
(8) Start TV Monitoring and Recording.
Here are some check list you might need to remind when using the DVR.
√
Make sure that a hard disk drive and camera(s) are properly installed
(see“Chapter 4. Hardware Installation”)
√
The hard disk jumper setting must be set to master
(see “Hard Disk Drive Installation” in Chapter 4). Otherwise, DVR may not boot up.
√
The DVR offers you the flexibility to choose between a faster recording frame rate
(Maximum Rate: 30 frames per second) for more natural motion or recording
for longer periods using a slower frame rate (Minimum Rate: 1 frame per second).
If you record using a 120GB hard drive (HDD), you will be able to record for up
to six months using the slowest frame rate of one frame per second.
√
There is an exception to entering “View” mode at start up. If the power is turned
off while recording (i.e. a power failure), the DVR will enter “Power Recovery”
mode at start up, detect that it has been shut down, and then reinitiate the
recording process.
[Note] See the next chapter 4 “Hardware Installation” for more details
such as hard disk drive and camera installation.

IP ALLOCATION: This option provide user to enable or disable
DHCP function. It is useful when user has the static public IP address
for DVR because user do not need to get IP address from DHCP
server.
MAC ADDR: On a local area network (LAN), the MAC (Media Access
Control) address is your computer's unique hardware identity number.
(On an Ethernet LAN, it is the same as your Ethernet address.)
When you are connected to the Internet from your computer (or
host as the Internet protocol thinks of it),a corresponding table
relates your IP address to your computer's physical (MAC) address
on the LAN.
IP ADDR: Within an isolated network, you can assign IP addresses
at random as long as each one is unique. However, connecting a
private network to the Internet requires using registered IP addresses
(called Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates. The IP address is
assigned by your Internet Service Provider (ISP), but you may assign
values to the lowest digits of the address (to designate unique
addresses for your DVR, your PC and other devices on your LAN).
Contact your ISP for more information regarding to your own IP
address.
SUBNET: It refers to a subnet mask used to determine what subnet
an IP address belongs to. A number that is used to identify a sub
network so that IP addresses can be recognized on a local area
network.
GATEWAY: In enterprises, the gateway is the computer that routes
the traffic from a workstation to the outside network that is serving
the Web pages. In homes, the gateway is usually housed at the ISP.
The gateway connects networks that have different protocols.
The gateway address is provided by your ISP.
DNS ADDRESS: It is needed to resolve the DIPS server name when
the name is not IP address but Internet Host name.
PORT NUMBER: These port numbers are used to communicate with
PC Client. It could be changed to another values. The default value
is 80.
•
We support www.DynDns.org domain name service. If you
register your domain name for the DVR, you can use this
service. This allows you to connect to your DVR without the
need for a static or public IP address.

Check if the hard disk rack is firmly locked. You will see a green light on the DVR
side panel when DVR is locked after it turns on. Also, make sure hard disk drive
jumper is set as a “master”. If none of the above works, check the two connectors
(power cable & IDE cable) from hard disk drive to DVR to see if they are firmly
connected.

show anything.
