As clarification: I do or don't need a computer connected to the DVR to view the cameras remotely? I am really looking for something to monitor on my smartphone and really don't want to leave a computer connected to the DVR.
That is correct. You do not need a computer connected to the DVR to view the cameras remotely. You only need a computer if you want to view from a computer. If you will access from mobile, then no PC is required.
You are correct. The video streamed to mobile is much smaller than to a computer and requires less bandwidth. The frame rate that you get on your phone will be dependent on how fast your Internet connection from your phone is.
PTZ controls are not yet supported for the mobile access of this DVR.

Thanks for your prompt response.
One more question, will the iDVR-E8 support GV-iView for my iPhone 3GS access? Is the remote viewing software similar to Netviewer v. 1.2?
Response from CCTV Camera Pros:
You can access the iDVR from the safari web browser on your iPhone. Here is a link to a video that shows how it works. Remote access will work with WIFI or 3G access from your iPhone.
The GV-iView iPhone app is used for Geovision surveillance camera systems, not our iDVR stand alone DVR system.
Please let me know if I can help further.
