The manual says that it can be replaced with almost any standard IDE drive but mine has a Seagate 160GB drive in it so may want to stick with original equipment. Other than tha, any drive SHOULD work.

    In the record mode I have mine set to Continue recording but it seem like it will record for a few days and then stops. I tried to reset it back to factory setting but it's doing the same. Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Is this dvr capable of recording OTA TV?


The SHR-2082 cannot record OTA TV because it does not have a tuner. It is meant to record video from a set of security cameras.

The manual for the SHR-2082 is available from Samsung support here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/SHR-2082 .

I wish that I had better news for you.

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!
