No; a DVR just records TV; it does not have a WiFi router built in.

At this point in time, it is very difficult unless you have a TiVO brand DVR and you have a router hooked up to that dvr. Then you take Tivo's computer program and you access your tivo's hard disk and put it onto your mini cruzer. Hope this helps and good luck!

Not necessarily. For example, a USB printer is attached to your computer but does not gain access to the Internet, nor does a keyboard or mouse that is attached by USB or wirelessly. I think what you might mean to ask, however, is whether a device that is attached to your wireless network that can see your computer (such as another computer, wireless printer, etc.) is automatically able to access the Internet. The answer to that is maybe. It depends on whether the device is designed to even try to gain access to the Internet. There are certain types of devices that may utilize the internal wireless network but that do not have the "intelligence" to attempt to venture beyond the local environment.An example of this is a wireless security camera such as I installed recently for a client. It connects by standard wireless networking back to its DVR on the same local wireless network and so the camera in and of itself does not have any Internet access: it knows only about its DVR since that is all with which it is designed to interface. The DVR itself can be made addressable if access from across the Internet is configured and the router is set to forward the ports over to the DVR for said access.So, the answer is that it is a possible maybe but is determined by the device and whether all the appropriate ducks are set up in the appropriate row to make it happen.

Connect the Ethernet cable to the top port of the DVR and an open port on the router. Check that the router has DHCP enabled (essential). Do a red button (inside card door) reset of the DVR. When it's booted up, do thus: Menu -> .....setup -> system setup -> network setup -> restore defaults. At this point stop and go to your router and disconnect AC power for a minute and plug it back in. When all the lights settle down, go back to the DVR and run the "connect now" command. You should get a "connected to Internet" message.

One way is to have your CCTV camera connected to a DVR that has a built-in web server. The DVR is in turn connect to the internet via a router (usually, although non-router configurations are possible with some DVRs). A DVR connected to the inernet in this way is assigned an IP address and becomes addressable like any other device on the internet. In laymans terms the DVR "serves up" the video to the remote user who enters the IP address in the address bar of their browser. As an example, let's say I'm in Hawaii and I want to check my backyard garden in Michigan. I'd go to any computer that has a fast internet connection, fire up the browser, type the IP number of my DVR into the browser and hit RETURN. The computer in Hawaii searches the internet for that IP address and basically asks it "what can you give me?". The DVR "sees" the request and does the only thing it knows how to do - serve up the video. In Hawaii I can now see streaming video from my CCTV camera setup in Michigan. Now, is this FREE? That's up for debate since you have to buy the DVR, router, fast internet connection, etc. (nothing's free, is it?). Do I need a third party software or website? In this case no. You can find DVRs with this capability all over for less than $300 for basic models. Remember this is a simplified example and factors like firewalls and router details will need to be negotiated on an individual basis. You should also consider using a third party, like, who can watch over your video feeds for a really low price like $1/day. This is important for crime prevention. Hardly anyone can be online 24x7

Umm.. not really.. You can go to some websites to watch episodes of tv shows and stuff like that (for free), but there's not really an "internet DVR" kind of thing out there. Or at least for free. An "internet DVR" sounds pretty cool.. I think I'd really like to find something like that.

You can play a recorded show from one DVR but you cannot play it on another DVR. A DVR works similar to a computer that is not linked to any other computer or the internet. You may record something on a single DVR and the television it is linked to will save the show you want to watch at the particular time it plays. Then you will be able to go back at a later more convenient time and watch the show as you like. But if you two DVRS' in a house, one upstairs and the other downstairs, you can only play recorded shows on the DVR that you recorded the show on.
