I have a question regarding the DCX3400-M....how to I use it as a monitor for my laptop???
The USB port is not active, so connecting to this will not do anything.
Good afternoon docspratley
I believe you're asking about connecting the DCX3400 to your laptop in order to use the screen of the laptop for viewing, is that correct?
If so, there is no supported way to do that, unfortunately. The 3400 has a number of video outputs, but usually a laptop only has video out, not in.
Thanks for the info, but what about the USB on both??
USB won't output video
1394 could work, depending on your computer though
What is the USB for on the DVR??
So, there is no way to use the 3400 as a monitor for my laptop?? I had heard awhile back that there was a way....any other suggestions?
If, as shaw-colin asked, you want to watch the DCX3400 on your laptop monitor, there are different devices (such as a Slingbox) out there that will let you do this. You would connect the HD box to this device, connect that to the router, and then get the feed from the router.
But if you want to send the feed from the laptop to the HD box? I don't see how that could be done.
