I work at a charity thrift store and quite some time ago a SA Explorer 8000 came in and i purchased it to harvest the hard drive out of it. The past few months we have been having problems with theft and vandalism in our donation area which sits behind the building.
Before i get into how to replace the hard drive i want to find out if there is a way to get the unit working without getting cable service and be able to record video feed from a camera.
The director has already gotten quotes from local security contractors to get a system in place the cheapest of which is 3500 for a 9 camera system and she doesn't want to spend that kind of money right now because money is tight so I'm trying to come up with other solutions. If i can't use this unit my next option is to use an old pc stuff a tv tuner card into it and get a camera but if i can get this working it will save me some money. Any help would be appreciated.
