Hi everyone. I am planning on getting a DVR. This is one of my choices:

 

http://www.amazon.com/Q-See-QT4760-1-16-Channel-Recording-Pre-Installed/dp/B00DW9U3B2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1396827276&sr=8-1&keywords=16+channel+DVR

 

I recently bought an all-in-one touchscreen windows 8 based computer. If I get this DVR(the link above), will I be able to use my All-in-One PC as a monitor for my DVR? My all-in-one PC has 6 USB ports and only one HDMI port. The all-in-one that I have is a Lenovo C440. I am fine with installing special software for this to work. My all-in-one does not have any VGA ports. Please help. Thank you.

From this "Stream Live Video Directly to a remote MAC/PC/iPhone/iPad/Android. Receive email alerts upon motion detection." it sounds like you access the live feed over your network.  You'd have to take a look at the documentation to see if you can access the recorded data this way also.

 

Your HDMI is an HDMI out, so you cannot connect it as an input.

 

You might need something like HDMI USB Digital Video Recorder - Capture Live Video Directly to PC to input HDMI to your machine.

 

You might ask on Amazon if you can stream recorded content.

Thank you so much. Can you recommend a good 24 channel DVR because I just realized that I need 24 cameras instead of 16.
