I can view the camera feeds/streaming and can configure the settings in them The DVR- Made some settings so it accept input from the IP cameras- Default IP is 192.168.1.10 (not changed)- Default Mobile view port 34599 (not changed)- Default HTTP port 80 (not changed)- Default Web port 34567 (not changed)HDMI connected to TVLAN port connected to the router I can see all camera feed from the TV, and can go to it with the computer by internet browser locally to 192.168.1., and accessing it with it's own software (CMS 3) which is using port 34567.The router- Forwarded external port 12345 to port 80 on the DVR- Forwarded external port 34567 to port 34567 on the DVR- Forwarded external port 34599 to port 34599 on the DVR- Even forwarded the rtsp ports from each of the cameras (7 of them) with 3330 - 3336 pointing to each IPs of the cameras port 554- Sets up a DDNS account i made from No-IP on it (the ISP change the WAN IP regularly so i think i needed to set DDNS)- Sets up a remote access on the router so i can access it from home The PC i use to set up all of the above are next to the router.
Now it can also record videos from the cameras without having the computer turned on 24/7 "solved" similar case.
I read all those threads, and some comments are really tipical. The DVR is made in China, it's Angel Eyes 16 channel H264 hybrid DVR AE-D16S16ES.
about the android, i just need to set it to lower fps from 15 to 8fps. Only thing I can tell you is, use the mobile program that comes on the CD included with the unit.
Do not download it from Google Play/App Store, try it with the one that comes with the unit. I have tried some of these cheap units, and sometimes the time I have to investo to get mobile viewing working is more than the cost of the unit.
It can work with standard cctv camera with BNC connector as well as IP cameras with RJ45 connector.
Here are the settings i set up on them: The cameras- I set a static IP to each of them and goes like 192.168.1.20 - 192.168.1.26- All of them keep their default http port which is port 80- For rtsp connection their default ports are 554, i didn't change any of them Connected all of them to the router with LAN cable Checked one by one through local connection with computer browser (firefox, IE, chrome)All is working perfectly.
I have successfuly utilized these cheap chinese dvrs with mobile viewing and can say it is an issue with the software made for the blackberries. Using the CD that come with them DVRs i realized refresh rate issues, screen size issues and buffering issues with different blackberries.
Anyways if you can test it out with a different blackberry it can be possible to confirm the issue.
All of this test is using the DDNS address that i set on the router.
The next day i go to my friend's house and tried to access it locally by wifi with my mobile, but like yesterday, it just show blanks. I even change the Host as the local IP of th DVR and port on 34599. The software just keep saying "Connecting", "Buffering", "Playing" and then "No response" over and over on android and blackberry.
And i think i might need to use it remotely from home (when i need to), so i asked my friend if it's ok if i set a remote access to it.
