At this stage this DVR is only setup to work with IE or various phone type devices...


If you don't have your manual you can download a copy here:

Page 31/32 has information on remote access.


If you have an IE emulator for your mac or have a way to emulate an Iphone then this will be the only way to access your system...


Alternatively you may be able to setup the DVR to behave as a standard webpage, you won't have all the embedded functionality though...
