I've just purchased a mini-camera to use like a security/nanny camera in my home while I'm at work. I'd like to record to either my media center PC or my DVR. I can't seem to figure it out?? How would I set up the DVR timing to record the camera output going into the DVR's standard A/V jacks?
Can I have my normal coax cable connection running into my DVR that I record TV programs with, and also have the camera hooked up through a standard A/V(composite) jacks and record what the camera is doing??
I'm sure these are dumb questions, but unfortunately I don't know how to do this?? Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!
I just was informed by Motorola that my DVR will not be able to record from the A/V jacks as I hoped.... software issue! Does anyone know if it's possible for my media center pc to record through it's a/v jacks?? Thanks!
we actually use a dvr recorder for security at work.. it has some ups and downs... it also has a burner built in to archive the bookmarked footage. Obviously you don't record continuously but by motion - the dvr would fill fast with fmv... unless you are worried about one source.
If you want the info i can get you the name, it's not a cheap solution but it works well (once properly configured0 on our 12 cam system.
Panasonic makes a DVD recorder, will record up to 8 hours on one DVD. Just connect the camera to one of the composite (yellow) inputs, set the recorder to record on the appropriate input channel, schedule the record start & stop times.
