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.

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..

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.

Error when loading page from browser


Newer versions of Java does not work on Pelco dx2000. You have to use Microsoft's VM version of Java, which is no longer offered by Microsoft, but you may be able to find it somewhere. current Java (from Sun) needs to be uninstalled. this makes the computer compatible with DX2000, but not the Internet as is it today. Kinda sucks, eh?

RCA Directv DVR


For all intents and purposes, your receiver is identical to the Direct TV R-10 (which is also made by RCA). There are TWO POSSIBLE SCENARIOS AND TWO POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS. PLEASE READ BOTH FIRST: Scenario #1 (Applies to 90% of situations) If this is a software issue: There are a number of software issues related to this receiver that Direct TV software engineers have been working on. If the receiver worked well before and then started running slowly unexpectedly, I would lean toward thinking that DirecTV downloaded a software patch that didn't take on your receiver. I would pull up the systems information screen and copy down all information especially the software version number and call DTV technical support to find out if you have the correct software version for your particular machine. There are a few minor difference between yours and an R-10 (like Hard Drive size and memory)which, in a rare case, might cause this problem. TiVo's use the Linux Operating System. A wrong kernel version, or software module can bog everything down. Be aware also, if they cannot fix it by resending and reauthorizing your receiver, the next step would be to do a hard restart. This is the setting in the menu "erase everything" which reformats (re-initializes the drive) You will receive a screen message which says this could take up to an hour (in some rare cases 2) The hard restart/reinitialing will erase all of your recordings and settings. If this doesn't fix the "slow" problem,(you will be able to tell after 3 or 4 days of use) Direct TV will offer to send you a replacement R-10 (which is also TiVo; you pay only the shipping of $19.95 and in some cases they waive that. Scenario #2 (Applies to 10% of situations) Hardware issue. If it can be validated that the correct software version is installed and all systems settings have been reset, reauthorized, and tried without positive results, then this may apply: DVR's save and store programs on a computer Hard Disk Drive. It is possible that slow reaction and response from your DVR is also an early warning sign of a Hard Drive that is beginning to fail and encountering errors and slow data storage (your shows and movies) and recovery. If this is the case, then a new replacement hard drive would be in order (only if you own the receiver and it is not leased) It is easiest to order replacement hard drives off the internet. You can't replace them with just any drive, however. The drive needs to have the Linux OS with the TiVo software kernel installed first and pre-initialized. You can have a professional do it for you or if you are electronically inclined, you can replace the hard drive yourself. Replacement drives normally have instructions included giving you step by step procedures for removing the old and installing the new drive. I order TiVo drives from www.weaknees.com. They are a known and reputable supplier of pre configured Maxtor Hard Drives which are specially designed for Home DVR's (I only recommend Maxtor or Seagate brand Hard Drives and these Maxtors are of special high quality). You may have to get an upgrade to an 70 hour (80GB)drive since your 40GB (35 hour) is harder to find and quite possibly no longer in production or available. If you want, you can send your receiver to weaknees and they can professionally install and configure everything for you. (Weaknees is located in Los Angeles, Ca) I have no interest in them, but I am satisfied that they know what they are doing. I hope this information helps you. Good Luck and best regards, Eric,

Clearing everything


A DVR has a small computer built in. When you run the clear everything option, this feature reinitialized the computer Hard Disk Drive doing a limited format. A format of a Hard Drive is always a slow process which normally takes 45 minutes to 1.5 hours on a 40 GB drive. Yours will actually take longer since it is larger (250 GB for 200 hours recording time), so I wouldn't panic yet. As long as you have a flashing red light on the box, it IS still formatting. If it goes beyond 8 hours, I would suspect you might have a problem or have been having some problem before (that motivated you to use clear everything).If, after 8 hours, it hasn't completed the format (red light flashing) then I would pull the cover on your DVR and pull and reseat the EIDE cable on the Hard Drive. Then restart again. Dirty contacts can cause this problem as well. Put the cover back on, do a hard restart and let it run again. If after another 8 hours, the problem still persists, then you may be experiencing read/write data errors on the drive. A failed or failing Hard Drive is most likely the culprit and it will have to be replaced. www.weaknees.com sells pre formatted and loaded Tivo Hard drives. If this is a Western Digital Drive, I would replace it with a Maxtor from them since the Maxtor are a special design just for DVR's.

The Screen shows "welcome. Powering up....." and is stuck


Direct TV has been working on numerous software issues. Some patches have been downloaded for TiVo that in some cases have caused problems. In your case, it is more possibly an indication that the hard drive is not running and you have a possible hardware failure. When you rebooted and became stuck on the "welcome, powering up screen", it could be an indication of a software glitch or a hard drive failure. I would go with a hard drive failure. Since this is a Hughes Receiver like mine and you own it, you could try a drive swap with another TiVo drive out of a like receiver. If one is not available, you may have to purchase one. Pre-configured and initialized drives are available from www.weaknees.com. I have no interest in them, but that is where I buy Tivo pre-configured Hard Drives from. You can get replacement or upgrade Maxtor Drives preconfigured from them for this specific brand and model of TiVo DVR. A drive swap would be cheaper troubleshooting. There is also a possibility of a problem with the built-in IDE controller or the power supply on your receiver which can't be determined until you do swap out with a Known Good Drive to eliminate a hard drive problem. If you are able to swap it out and If the good drive works, then your old one has corrupted data and would need to be re-initialiaed and reloaded. If it is an older smaller (35 hour) drive, you would be better off with a new replacment since the loading is a somewhat lengthy process and must be done on a computer running the Linux Operating System.

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.
