Question about Samsung 4 Channel Dvr

1 Answer

Samsung SHR-1040 O/S and Video format/file

Are you able to remove the HHD from the DVR and save the video on a PC for viewing later. I have been able to connect the HHD as an external drive (via USB) to the PC, but I'm unable to access the drive. I assume that the unit formats the drive and then partitions the drive placing some type of O/S on the smaller partition and MPEG-4 video on the larger partition. Drive shows up in the disk drive of device Mgr and also in the Computer Management area (Disk Management). Both partitions show as Healthy, but as Unknown Partitions. However, it does not show up in my computer as a drive. Bottom line, I would like to swap drives keeping the unit operational and be able to view the video on the removed drive on a PC.
Txs. ahead,
Turk

The only way to do this is to directly back up the video to your pc from the unit. mj

You have to hook it up to a tv monitor and change the settings through the menu. It will originally include a password just to get you on, then you will immediately have to change it. After you do that you can access the menu where you can change the output settings

Samsung shr-1040 playback is blocky


Sorry, but there is no way to turn off the compression. That is the just the way a quad works. It compresses the 4 video signals to 1 channel. The only way to get around it is to buy a 4 channel unit. 1 channel per camera.

The manual says:
You cannot enter MENU by forgotten password.
- If you forget the password, you shall reset SHR-2160/2162/2080/2082 DVR to
the values set at the factory. Keep pressing both the "MODE" button and the
"PTZ" button on the left for 5 seconds, Keep pressing both the "MODE" button
and the "PTZ" button on the left for 5 seconds. The password default is "4321".

Best to get a USB thumb drive and download the video needed to the thumb or flash drive. Put it on the computer and there you can use a program like Snagit to capture the best parts and save it for police. Saves a lot of wasted time

Connecting the recorder to the security system


If you are hooking your cameras into the SMO-151qn then you can use the pigtail cable to connect to the Shr-1040. Make sure the video out from the SMO-151qn goes into the video in of the Shr-1040. If there is a choice use CH1. On the Shr-1040 hold down the mode button and press CH2 for about 10 seconds. The Shr-1040 should reboot. Once it comes up press the record button. After recording for a feww minutes stop the recording. On the SMO-151qn press the button on the front Live/Vcr. You should see the screen from your Shr-1040. IF you hit play you should see what you recorded. Good Luck!
