I recently purchased a Pelco DX2000 16 Ch Dvr, I'm having problems configuring the Dvr to work with the Pc. pelco advise me, to get a cross-over cable, and to ping the IP address listed in the manual. When
i try using the IP address in internet Explore, it does not connect to the main system configuration. Please advise, me how to fix this problem.
Re: I'm looking to hookup the DVR with the PC via A...
I have 2 DX2000's, In order for you to communicate with your pc, you need a Crossover cable, if you have a laptop or computers, connect the crossover cable to that, set your ip address on your computer to 192.168.2.108, (Note: since you never configured it, this would be the default setting). If you have the manual this is in there.,
Another method, if you don't have a crossover cable is to set the ip on your computer to 192.168.2.110 Subnet, 255.255.255.0. its a little more funky, the crossover would be easier, once you get in, then go to the configuration page and setup up the IPaddess for the DX2000, the Gateway to your Router and the subnet mask, once you do this, then you're able to get to it on your network, by typing in http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8004 .

do you have audio cameras, they don't usually give you the audio cameras with a standard setup, on the back of the dvr there is a plug for audio its either a phono plug or a mic input socket, this can be used in one room or outside depending on the mic you have to buy. you then wire this up to the cctv and have to setup the sound to the camara number.
If all of the 6 DVRs are on the same location (on the same network), and you want to remotely connect (VPN) to that location, you can Endura Enable the DVRs and then VPN to the Primary DVR. (Note that you need to be Endura Certified to use the Endura Enabled feature).
If they're all geographically distributed, you can only VPN into a single unite at a time..
on the cameras them self there should be a adress and baud rate setting this should be the same as what you have on the software. also the cable that you have going back to your ethernet panel cannot be by any electric lighting or anything like that and check and make sure that the connetors that plug in to the panel have the right color code. you need to look for the straight through wiring diagram 568b. hope this helps.
I've come across issues in the past where low quality hdmi cables can cause issues like this. When they were upgraded, the problem was resolved. With having you switching the cables, I wanted to make sure that the audio and video output of the dvr was functioning correctly, which it seems to be. I don't think that you have a problem with either the TV or the DVR. There is a term known as the "HDMI handshake" between 2 components that are connected. Where the DVR isn't even aware that their is a problem with either intermittent audio or video to the TV. It's just that communication via the hdmi cable causes the TV to keep trying to interface with the DVR if it "senses" any inadequacies in data transfer from the DVR. I am not sure what quality hdmi cables you are utilizing, but a higher quality pair will hopefully suffice to resolve the issue. Just a suggestion.. Try finding cables online, such as ebay. You will get a much better deal on them. I hope this information is of some help, despite sordid rambling..lol. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me. I would be more than happy to assist you in any way possible. Good luck!
What happens if you move the DVR off your Sony TV and put it onto your wife's TV (swap DVRs). Does the problem follow the DVR?
If it does, then you are looking at something common with the DVR, since the expander appears to work just fine on another dvr. If it problem doesn't follow the DVR when swapped, you may be looking at a ground loop issue.
Ground Loops occur when different devices are plugged in at different points. Ideally, everything should be plugged into the same power strip, or wall outlet. But, when things are plugged into different points, noise can pop up due to the difference of electrical potential on the grounds of the equipment, and even the neutral conductors. This can occur even when using an extension cord that is plugged into the same strip. Also try using a different power strip temporarily to see if that improves things as well.
You can connect it to your PC directly with a cross-over net cable, and you also connect it to your LAN with straight net cable. Type The default address: 192.168.2.108:8004 in your IE after you set your pc address in the same geteway, you will see the user and PW requirement screen. if you can't get this screen,try to reset DVR to default setting. see Page#100 of its manual.
if you are connecting the dvr via component video cables select the output to 480i and not 480p or other higher formats.the tv cannot support anything higher than 480i. or try using composite video hookup instead.
For what it is worth, I fhave found streaming video does not function well using a wireless connection. The options of multipale routers will work as long as you configure them as to not have conflicting IP address assignment's via DHCP, and the routers do not have matching IP address's. Never fear all is possible with paticence. BPCS
