MASTER & SLAVE:
The Master HDD is the hard disk-drive in the cabinet accessible on the front of the monitor. On
the back of the monitor there is an IDE-SUB input for connecting another HDD to serve as a
backup to the Master HDD, providing extra storage space.
To connect a Slave HDD, you will need an External IDE drive with a built-in power supply.
Please contact the manufacturer or visit www.lorexcctv.com for more information regarding
how to obtain an accessory External HDD Bay with IDE connection.
Note that once you have connected a Slave HDD, it needs to be activated in the HDD SLAVE
option of the HDD / REC SET submenu (refer back to page 12 for further details).
Note: any HDD that you connect to the system must be Cleared.
When recording to the Master HDD becomes Full, the Slave HDD commences receiving the
earliest recorded data from the Master HDD. Therefore, data is not lost, as it gets transferred to
the Slave HDD. The most recent recordings are found on the Master HDD.

APPENDIX #1 – INSTALLING the HDD
The HDD serves the same purpose in a DVR as a video cassette does in a VCR.
However, installing the HDD is a bit more complicated. Please follow the next steps
carefully in order to ensure proper installation.
The compartment located on the front panel of the DVR is the removable Cartridge Casing in which you
insert the HDD. The various parts of the Cartridge Casing are labeled for your reference.
1.
Remove the Cartridge Casing from the DVR
Lift the Handle and pull towards you. The Cartridge Casing will slide out of the DVR.
Cartridge Casing
1. Keyhole
2. LED indicator lights

APPENDIX #4 - RS232 Remote Protocol
The RS232 / Alarm input allows you to control the DVR system from your PC. In order to achieve this, you will require an RS232 COM
Port communication program installed on your PC. There are many of these software programs available on the internet, some of which
are free. Please contact the manufacturer SVC if you require this software, or visit www.lorexcctv.com for more information.
Use an RS-232C cable to connect the DVR Combo to your computer.
The remote connection on the DVR uses 8 data bits, 1 start bit, and 1 stop bit. Below is an example of the data stream with the control
codes shown.
ACT – OxFF
OxCO
ID
CODE
STOP – Ox7F
The PC keyboard simulates the DVR keypad. For example, pressing “r” will make the DVR stop.
