I can view live streaming of my cameras in my office through my mobile. Can I not playback the view of any earlier period on my i-phone without first having to download the same from the dvr?

This was possible earlier with my other dvr brand.

It keeps saying invalid server address???

This will not work from a mobile phone from outside your house, it may only work when you are connected to your wifi at home. This is simply because for it to work from outside you need to specify your external IP Address (whatismyip.com) 192.168.xx.yy is an internal IP only, used by pretty much everyone, so your phone will never know whose device to connect to. The problem with specifying an external IP is that IP changes constantly by your Internet Provider, therefore it is not a static IP. You can buy a subscriiption from dydns.org to get is directed to your home IP, thus even if your IP changes you will still get access via your DYDNS account.
