Environment

DX4500/DX4600 Series DVR

Cause

The DX4500/DX4600 Series DVR is not designed to operate with a standard PC "QWERTY" keyboard.

Resolution

Each DVR is shipped with a USB mouse, which is used to interact with an onscreen virtual keyboard. For normal PTZ and monitoring operations, the KBD300A keyboard is recommended.  See Optional Accessories section on page 4 of the DX4500/4600 Specification Sheet.

For virtual keyboard operation, see page 21 of the DX4500/4600 Operation/Configuration Manual.
