    Totally honest with you. The little bit of info I can find on it is not real helpful. I assume it has internal bays for the hard drives.. I would think the software has it's own disc checking utilities. I don't know what format the hard drive is. (fat, ntsp, etc) it IS possible to remove the hard drive from it and add it to a normal PC for checking assuming it's not a proprietary format. I have gathered from what I have seen on it that you can add hard drives to it (assuming it's not already maxed out)

    Hi
    We had a power failure on our system, and when the power returned the DVR flashes up the HDD failure icon. Also the system isnt backing up now, need to replace the HDD.

What is the problem with the hard drive? Is it not working anymore? There are a couple of options you can explore. The easiest is to hook an external hard drive up.
Your DVR can use up to a 250gb external hard drive. It can also be upgraded internally, but unless you are familiar with changing out hard drives, I would not recommend this.

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box


First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    Can't view my cameras


    The DVR will be programmed with an IP Address via the DVR main menu function (network settings) and a valid password. The network viewing software (web viewer) you will need to ensure that the IP address is entered correctly for your DVR along with your valid user password.

    Trust the above info is of assistance if you require a manual in order to check your settings try this link http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/samsung/samsung_dvr_product_list.html

    Samsung DVR HR 737 substitution Old original Hdd 160 GB (dead)


    DVRs, not sure at the moment about the one you have, are limited with the brands and size hard drives it is able to accommodate. I'll advise you to check the manual you have with the DVR to see the brands and sizes that it can accommodate.

Go to burn and transfer cd in the options on the burn page at top it lets you change formats.The format you need to use to go from computer to DVD player is vcd it has a DVD format but i don't have a DVD burner so i haven't tried that format yet.Hope this might help.

    Set HDD to master


    The internal power supply to the HDD is often suspect in these units. Check you have power on the internal plug to the HDD from the circuit board. if you do not Try fitting an external HDD power supply (£15) this cured my unit which had a similar fault.
    Hope this helps - good luck.

    Starts recording then stops


    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.
