VGA and RS-232c

Hello
I see a VGA and RS-232c port on the back of my Tyco, digital Video Recorder (they are female). Does anyone know what they are for, and what can i plug into them? It is being used for cams.
Thank you

Well VGA is standard computer output so you may be able to record stuff off of your pc.

And the RS 232 port is a data serial port. The manual should explain this.

Should, but I can imagine the manual saying, 12 -- input data serial port
And leaving the owner guessing.

Not familiar with the 12?
The RS-232 standard will explain it all, but I'm not one to spend time on using a serial port - not in the past six years.

Scroll down to your model number and download the Adobe PDF file and read. Full description of your recorder is there.

An RS-232C port is provided to connect an external modem for remote monitoring, configuration and software upgrades, text input, and to connect a remote control keyboard. Use a modem cable with a DB-9S (female) connector to connect to the DVR. See Chapter 3 Configuration for configuring the modem.

Hello, In other words i can hook my computer monitor up to the DVR instead of the way it is now (hooked up to a tv)?

DA had written this in response to http://www.thestuccocompany.com/maintenance/VGA-and-RS-232c-229662-.htm : Harry wrote:

VGA is obviously for attaching a VGA monitor and viewing locally what's being recorded. Also extremely useful for making sure your cameras are still positioned well and not spray-painted over if you know what I mean.
As far as RS-232 connector, that one is most likely just a rudiment of a PC which your DVR is built out of. May not be used for anything useful at all or may be used for connections to a PTZ (Pan/Tilt/Zoom) controller. If you don't have PTZ cameras (if you did, you'd know - they are 10 times more expensive than fixed) simply don't worry about the RS.
