Yes, on the configuratiion plage, use the schedule to increase the amount of time you want for

1) Sechedule recording
2) motion recording
3) event recording.

Remember, this is all based on the size of your hard drive and the number of camera you have installed.

    Also note, the DX2000 is an old machine, But, still one of the BEST., That being said, it was designed for VM by Microsoft and of course they dropped it for SUN's Java. But, you can get around this.

    It seems windows 2000 works best for remote viewing as it has less Service pack problems and Stop I believe at IE6.



    IE7 and IE8 will just give you nightmares, XP and Vista will also give you Nightmares. It has and does work with XP and IE6, but after SP3 and some hotfix's things have not worked right since.



    A good suggestion would be to keep a cheap laptop around with windows 2000 on it. for remote viewing.

How to export recorded video on a Pelco DX8100 DVR?


Converting Pelco exported video files
WHAT IS A DVR?
A DVR is a video recording and pl
ayback device that inco
rporates all of the essential capa
bilities of a VCR but adds significan
t advantages. Like
a VCR, video is recorded from one or more cameras and stored for later playback and retrieval; however, in a DVR, video data is
recorded and
stored on a hard disk instead of
magnetic tape.
Storing video in
this manner facilitates
instant, rand
om access to data, as opp
osed to sequential
access inherent to tape-based recording. This means no fast-forwarding or rewinding is necessary to locate the data a user want
s to view or
export. Another key advantage over tape is decreased maintenance. With no need to replace tapes, DVRs with hard disks can be le
ft unattended
for extended periods of time. Since video remains in the digital domain, data is easy to store, transport, and manipulate. Unli
ke analog video
recordings, digital data does not suffer from a loss in quality wh
en copied or moved from device to device. Because DVRs rely o
n hard disks
instead of tape, data storage is virtually unlimited. Video data
can also take advantage of comp
ression technology
to increase
the efficiency of
storage media. Modern DVRs, such as the DX8000, allow users to record, play back, and view live video simultaneously. Keeping d
ata digital
means video can be easily backed up to a variety of storage media.
It also means that alphanumeric
information, such as date, t
ime, and
transaction statistics,
can be synchronously recorded with video.

Bunker hill 67139 dvr hard drive wrong year 2058


The issue may be is that you have a DVD in your dvr , that still shoes that date and time. Just a possibility, not sure,. try to see if you can take DVD out of dvr, and use a new one. I happened to me but, the case was a vcr,and I had a recorded video tape which while playing , was showing a blue screen, with "no data received" which actually it was when no data vcr was receiving from cable at the time it was recording . If the problem still is not solved then there is issue with some circuits, and processors. Also you may want to check if Bunker Hill has any customer support, to check with them.

Need to recover data from DirecTV R15 DVR receiver hard drive


First, sorry for the delay in respoding to your post. I did notice that you had a prior question about the Power Supply on an R15 DVR. Does the unit have a manufacture code of 500(found on the right hand front Flip Door of the DVR)? If so, I might be able to help you in repairing the Power Supply. As far as I know, getting your DVR up and running again is the only way to watch your previously recorded programs. As far as retreiving programs from your old Hard Drive via other methods, I probably won't be able to help you there. When I had both of my identical DVR 15 500's apart for a parts swap to diagnos a failed Phototransistor(infra-red sensor for the remote control), I also tried to swap out the Hard Drives. This is what I found: When you swap a Hard Drive into another DVR, it won't play any of the programs previously recorded. However, if you record new programs on the swapped Hard Drive then they will be playable on this current setup. Now, if you swap the Hard Drive back to the original DVR it came out of, the programs will once again be accessible except for any that you might have recorded while the Hard Drive was in the other DVR. So, in conclusion, when programs are recorded on a particular DVR, it is encoded electronically to play back only in that DVR via communication from the Motherboard and the Hard Drive. I know, it sucks, but that is why I was asking if you are pretty sure the Power Supply is at fault. If so, I received info from this forum on how to fix the issue. Also, if the attempt fails, Ebay has some previously owned DVR's for sale and maybe you can get one for spare parts. Remember, the Power Board and Front Display Control Panel are the only interchangeable parts IF you want to view the programs on your DVR's Hard Drive. Let me know what your DVR does when you plug it in. That will go far in further diagnostics of your DVR.

Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. Since the DVR is the only thing having the freezing issue, it sounds like it maybe a hard drive issue. I would recommend resetting the receiver. Unplug it from the power supply for 10 seconds and then let the receiver reboot itself. If you are still having this issue, I would recommend calling Dish Network and we will need to replace the receiver. Hard Drive issues do not resolve themselves and only get worse over time. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

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..

My pelco 16 cameras reset each one minutes


You need to do a INITIALIZATION/REINITIALIZATION PROCEDURE See below for details Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

If you are installing the DVR, follow the steps below to initialize
the unit as part of the installation instructions in the Installation/
Operation Manual. This procedure erases all data on the hard disk
drive and is necessary to ensure that there is no data that could cause
improper operation when you try to use it. With a clean hard drive, the
DVR can correctly index recorded video with the correct time and date.
Once the DVR is initialized, you should not reinitialize the DVR
again unless you are having trouble finding and playing back video,
and there is no other solution. If you have to reinitialize the DVR, make
sure the time and date are correct before beginning the procedure.
WARNING: When you initialize or reinitialize the DVR:
• The hard disk drive is erased.
• The password and all menu settings return to their default
conditions.
To initialize or reinitialize the DVR:
1. Press and hold the Function button. The Function Key List
appears. Keep holding the Function button.
2. Press and release the 0 button, and then release the Function
button. Enter the password if requested. The Setup Menu
appears.
3. Using the front panel buttons, enter 1220.
4. A screen appears and asks if you want to continue. Use the
Search (<</>>) buttons to highlight Yes or No to erase the
hard disk drive, and then press the Play/Pause button.
PASSWORD
The default password is 0000. If you change the password, and
then forget it, you can get into the system by using 2002.

I want to hook up an external hard drive to increase the record time available for my Motorola DCH3416 cable box. I already have drives with eSata, USB, and firwire ports.


From the Motorola FAQs:

How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like a computer or hard drive? trnsp.gif Question How do I transfer my programs from my Motorola DVR to an external device like my computer or hard drive?
trnsp.gif Answer No. Currently you can't offload recorded content to any external device from a Motorola DVR, even though the data ports are there, the software doesn't support it yet. When the option becomes available through a software upgrade, it will be downloaded to DVR automatically by service providers/cable companies.

Hughes SD-DVR40 has video delays. the video stops every 5 seconds and when you press a button on the remote there is a delay for the response.


Video delays, running slow, and pixel glitches are indicators of Hard Disk Drive read and write errors. The shows you record are stored on a computer Hard Disk Drive within the DVR. If you have the original 40GB (35 hour) Western Digital Drive and it has never been replaced, it is a sure sign it is beginning to fail. You can either send it out and have it replaced or if you are electrically and mechanically inclined and want to try it yourself or have a computer genius living next door, the drive replacement is a simple process. You will need to obtain a pre loaded, pre initialized hard disk drive replacement for this Hughes DVR. You can purchase them online at www.weaknees.com. The smallest replacment is a 70 hour drive (80GB)They sell high quality pre configured Maxtor drives especially designed as replacements for DVR Drives. There are step by step instructions included with the drive. Any qualified electronics guru or computer tech should be able to replace the old drive with the new preconfiged drive. It is about a 30 minute job. Once installed and powered up the Receiver/DVR will act like it is a brand new receiver. You will have to call Directv to reauthorize your receiver again. If they ask, you can explain that you had a technician replace a faulty hard drive on your owned receiver and you need to reauthorize it. You will discover this when you power up with the new drive. The new drive should fix the delay problem. You will also need to set up your remote for your TV through the Remote setup menu again unless you remember the code (I can't). When you access the remote setup, the instructions will be displayed on the screen. Just scroll down to your brand of TV and input the different codes one at a time until you find one that works.
