How To Record Spy Cam Video and Audio Using The Mini Portable DVR P-160 Receiver/Recorder

Mini Portable Spy Cam DVD Receiver-Recorder The P-160 Portable 2.4GHz Wireless Receiver/Recorder is a perfect handheld DVD recorder and player that is used with a Mini Spy Camera to record both Video and Audio. It fits in the palm of your hand and is about the same size as a small portable radio. It’s great for portable on-the fly surveillance missions because it be used anywhere with up to 4 Mini Spy Cameras. The caveat is you must select 1 of 4 cameras to record at a time not all 4 cameras at once. You can plant 4 cameras where ever you need to spy on anyone or anything. The Mini Spy Camera can transmit to a range of 600ft if it in line of site directly in the path but expect less due to various factors like wall and ceilings.

While the small manual that comes with the P-DVR explains things pretty well this article will server to instruct the new user on it’s functions and operations in fair detail.

Before you use the Portable Spy Camera DVD Receiver-Recorder you must plug in the power cord charger into the side of the unit and and an AC outlet to charge for around 4 hours.

First of all the unit comes by default with 128 Mb of built in memory but to get long recorders the unit can record for a much longer time and can support up to 2 GB of SD memory which will allow the PVR to record up to 32 hours. The P-DVR uses a Secure Digital memory card that is inserted at the top and only fits 1 way so you can’t get it wrong.

The are 2 modes of operation RECORD and PLAYBACK and there is a small switch at the top right labeled R for record and P for play.

To turn the PVR on simple press the button on the left top. The button has a small O with a line through it.

Before you start to record with you spy cam make sure you have you battery plugged in to your mini spy camera or power adapter plugged into the camera and the electrical socket to power the mini cam.

You should see the image from the wireless mini spy cam on the 2.5″ PVR screen. Now if you just see static that means the mini spy cam is transmitting on a different frequency and you need to set the channel on the P-DVR. To change the channel make sure the unit is turned on and the top switch is set to R for record. Then press the top left silver key that has 2 opposing arrows shown on the face you will see a blue light indicating which channel the unit is to record on.

To record simply press the silver REC button on the top right face of the display, you will see a red dot on the top left of the screen and the number of minutes and seconds how long the record is so far.

To Stop recording simply press the silver REC button again. If the memory on the P-DVR is full the recording will stop automatically which makes sense.
