I’m having a real tough time getting this iDVR E16 working past displaying the cameras that are connected to it. I can’t connect to it with my phone, I cant connect to it on a Mac, I can’t connect to it on a WinPC, I cant configure email alerts since theres no shift key to gain access to symbols for the password, I cant update the firmware (assuming of course that it needs to be updated)
And I’m traveling for two weeks starting tomorrow. I really wanted to get this thing up and running before I left too. 🙁
I have set the device to a static IP and opened the correct port for external viewing. Of course that means nothing that this point since I can’t get internal viewing (on the same network) to work.
I’m being driven bananas by this thing!October 5, 2013 at 3:05 pm #32564
I’m seriously considering returning this device. Its not working anywhere near as advertised and the online support is less than weak.
I’ve managed to configure other stand alone DVR’s and PC based DVR’s over the years and this one is defying me at all turns.
two thumbs way down so far….October 6, 2013 at 2:10 pm #32566
