- Verify 'vibrate' switch is in the off position
- Verify 'Off/TV/LCD' is in the TV position, this will allow for checking video via pass-thru connector.
- Verify SD card is in place
- Connect AV Out pass-thru connector to side of DVR.
- Make sure power switch is in the 'off' position (all the way right when the LCD panel is facing down)
- Insert DVR into bottom of camera module
- Connect 'DC 5V Out' plug, this will power the video camera??? (is this correct?)
- Connect 12VDC power to lead wires coming from camera module (to power the camera)
- Turn screw on camera module to extend camera outside the aeroshell. Go approximately until the black line is flush with the aeroshell. Do not over torque this.
- Insert tool into vent hole on side of aeroshell and slide switch all the way to the left (record mode). The switch is located in pretty much the same plane as the vent hole, but slightly to the right. The blue LED will be approximately in line with the vent hole. You should observe the LED go Blue. At this point, recording will have started.
- Plug in monitor to the av-out pass thru and verify that the DVR is receiving video and recording.
- Slide switch to the 'off' position, all the way right (with the LCD panel facing downward). Wait for the DVR to actually turn off, it will take a moment.
- Turn screw on camera module to retract camera into aeroshell. Do not force or over torque this. A constant, light, force from one finger pushing the camera inward is helpful.
- Remove the SD card from the side of the DVR
- Insert SD card into card reader on PC and copy video files to computer hard drive (make 2 copies if possible). Note: We're using an 8gig SD card, and some card readers don't like cards that size. If it plays back on the DVR, but not the PC, your card reader may not support the larger card reader sizes
