CMS DVR Recording Issues

I have a client with a older DVR that they normally just view on a monitor.  Now we need to pull and backup video from it.  It's an 8 Channel Northern DVR.

I have downloaded on their computer as far as I can tell the appropriate software from this website.

I have the software set up and I believe I have it talking to the DVR correctly since it comes up with 8 different cameras to view, but I get no actual live video on the screen.  If I go to playback, it errors out.  Yet, I can connect directly to the DVR through it's IP address.  I have the correct login information (admin, 1234).  Can you help out?

I already figured it out with assistance from Northern.  I had to drag the DVR onto the live view area.
