4 Appendix
4.1 HDD Capacity Calculation
This chapter describes how to determine the size of the HDD you need when you install the NVR for
the first time.
The NVR adopts the MPEG4 / H.264 compression technology and its dynamic range is large.
Therefore, the capacity of the HDD depends on the estimated size of files generated in each channel
every hour according to code streams.
Computational formula of HDD Capacity:
Whole HDD Capacity(M)= number of the channels * time in need (hour) * spent of HDD Capacity per
hour (MB/hour)
The meanings of parameters are as follows:

Number of the channels: Number of channels where you need to enable recording.

Time in need (hour): Time you need to record.

Spent of HDD Capacity per hour
Spent of HDD Capacity per hour(M/hour)=
BitRate
 3600 (sec ond )
8bit
You can obtain the Bit Rate by using the following methods:
In the GUI interface, choose Menu > Settings > Video , view the value of the Bit Rate.
In the Web interface, choose Parameter Configuration > Local settings > Encoding Scheme,
view the value of the Bit Rate.
[Example]
If you select 4M for the bit rate and select four channels for recording and one week of recording is
needed, you can calculate the HDD capacity by using the following formula:
Recording time (hour) =7days*24 hours=168 hour
Spent of HDD Capacity per hour(M/hour) =
www.foscam.com
4 Mbit
 3600 =1800M/hour
8bit
68
NVR User Manual
Whole HDD Capacity(M)=4*168(hour) * 1800(M/hour) =1209600M,
1209600M=
1209600M
=1181.25G
1024
According to the preceding calculation result, you are advised to buy a HDD of 1.5 TB or above.

NVR User Manual
Firstly, login the router, goes to the menu of Port Forwarding or Port Trigger (or named Virtue Server on
some brands of router). Take Linksys brand router as an example, Login the router, and goes to
Applications & Gaming > Single Port Forwarding.
Secondly, Create a new column by LAN IP address & HTTP Port No. of the NVR within the router
showed as below.
Assign a name as
you like here .
Fill the Media Port no. of the camera on the
column of External Port and Internal Port .
 Use domain name to access the camera via internet
After the port forwarding is finished, you can use the domain name+ http no.to access the camera via
internet. Take hostname ycxgwp.no-ip.info and http no. 2000 for example, the accessing link of the
camera via internet would be http:// ycxgwp.no-ip.info:2000


Check whether the IPC also supports the protocol selected in the NVR.
5. The screen of the display is incomplete.
Confirm the current resolution and check the resolution supported by the display. If the resolution is
1920 * 1080, the display needs to support the resolution 1920 * 1080.
6. Why can't opened web pages on the client be used properly after the NVR server switches to
the 1080P mode?
When the NVR server switches to the 1080P mode, some functions can take effect only after the server
reboots. In this case, log out of the Web client and log in to it again. In similar cases, for example,
changing the IP address and HTTP port of the NVR, you need to log in to the client again.
www.foscam.com
77
NVR User Manual
7. Why can't video files be downloaded during video playback or downloaded files cannot be
played back properly?
To save consumed resources, the server limits concurrency of video playback and file download. In this
case, stop video playback and then download files or play back videos after video files are downloaded.
8. Why does the Web client prompt TIME OUT after you enable or disable UPNP in network
settings?
In this case, the server restarts some applications. Accordingly, you need to exit the web client and log
in to the client again.
9. It prompt "Have no right to create directory or file!" after taking snapshot.
When you use Windows7 or Vista, you may be not able to snapshot path because of the security
