Remember, an off the shelf stereo to mono plug will short together the ring and the sleeve on the IR input jack of the DVR, rendering it inoperable.
Here's your schematic for making a cable that will work for this with traditional IR distribution systems that utilize 3.5mm mono jacks.
Stereo Jack -> Mono Jack
Tip -> Unused
Ring -> Tip
Sleeve -> Sleeve
Hope this helps.
Thanks, this is what I did,
got a stereo cable, cut it in half.
got a mono cable cut it in half.
spliced (interconnected) the tip on mono to ring on stereo
spliced(interconnected) the sleeve to sleeve
It would not work
