I have an all-in-one computer but all it has is an HDMI-out port and 2 USB 3.0 and 4 SUB 2.0 ports. I was thinking about getting a DVR that connects to a separate monitor but I just want everything to be connected to one computer, my all-in-one desktop PC running Windows 8. I have a 16 camera system but I might add some more cameras later so I am planning on getting a 24 channel DVR but I do not know how to connect the DVR to my all-in-one computer because there is no VGA or DVI or HDMI female ports in the all-in-one. Please help because I need this camera system set-up as soon as possible. I have no set DVR that I want. As long as it has 24 BNC connecters in it so I can connect my cameras. Please also recommend a DVR. Thank you.

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

Unless the all-in-one computer has some sort of video input (which many will not), you are likely out of luck. About the best you could do if that is the case is maybe a USB video capture/tuner device...but not really sure how well that would work.

The exception might be if the DVR has some sort of network connection and software that allows you to control it/access it over a network, but that will depend on the DVR...and you still may want/need a separate monitor to set things up initially...and then rely on the network connection.
