Connections

If you check the back of your camera you will find two separate leads. A power lead, and a video lead. These will need to be connected to the appropriate matching leads on the siamese cable.





















At the DVR end, the video lead will be connected to the appropriate video input on the DVR. The power lead will be connected to the camera power supply.













Hard Drive

If you purchased a hard drive from Luxor, it will come to you preinstalled. It should also be formatted for use already. However, if you are getting an HDD FAIL message, you will need to format the HDD. To do this, log in to the menu and choose the Maintenance Icon. Then choose the HDD manage option. Then press the Formatting button in the lower left corner. A window will pop up and ask you if you are sure you want to reformat the hard drive. If you do not have any files that you want to back up on the hard drive, then choose yes. Please note, this is not a necessary step unless you are getting the HDD FAIL message or if you are installing your own HDD.

If you are adding your own, you will need to remove the outer case and secure the hard drive to the mounting brackets. Connect both the red data cable and the multi color power cable to the applicable ports on the back of the hard drive. Replace the outer shell. Power the DVR on and complete the HDD Format procedure as outlined above.
