Smonet system with K8208-W - Help

Hello all,

I'm having a heck of a time with this and hoping someone might be able to help me set this straight. Purchased a cheap-ish plug-and-play smonet camera system on amazon with a K8208-W NVR, i'm just trying to get a stream of the cameras to this computer and it doesn't seem like i can figure out if this is even probable.

The manual doesn't mention anything about rtsp or http streams, just that i need to use IE with active X enabled.
I've tried this site with no luck:
i've also shot in the dark and tried all this with no luck: ... 3/35502/35
I've searched this forum and tried a couple of recommendations with other systems to see if they'd work with mine

I've tried these with VLC just so i can test them at first before i try to figure out how to get them in with zoneminder and so far nothing has been working. I've been twiddling around for a couple of days and not making any head way so i figured i'd bite the bullet and post for help...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm in the same boat. This thing is basically garbage. If this is even marginally marketable I'm in the wrong business.

I'll snoop on the camera traffic and see if it's something standard.
