Hi.  Orginally, I programmed the service correctly into the DVR.  Worked fine until the power went off for a minute or so.  Then when the ip address changed, the ip did not update.  After thinking about it, I decided to program the dydns host and password into the Router to see if it would update.  Works great now. 

My question is – is it ok to have both the router and DVR enabled with dyndns service – or should it be only in the Router.  I do not want dyndns to ban the host due to excessive updates.  Thanks Larry

Either device can update the service. If the router is capable in some instances it can be better especially if you have an advanced network setup. Without sniffing the network there is no way to tell why the update failed.

Thanks Daniel. The router seems to do very well so far.  Should I dis-able the dyndns login in the dvr setup or leave both enabled (router and DVR)?  What do you think? Thanks, Larry

you should disabled it in the DVR and keep it ON in the router only, otherwise it will have a conflict at the time of updating the IP when it changes
