The static IP address for your DVR, is it in range with the IP of the router? What is the make, brand and model of your DVR?
Found this on the net: to consider the following to make the DVR working thru your router: make sure that your modem is giving out a public IP address to avoid double NAT issues ; enable port forwarding on the router using the DVR's IP address (advise to us static IP for the DVR), the service port numbers may be predefined for each DVR and it may be different for other manufacturers; and you can also try disabling Filter Anonymous Internet Requests under the Security tab on the router's page.
To access the DVR, you can use a browser and type "http://(public ip of the router): service port number forwarded on the router). Some DVR's though require a software to access them over the web, while some can be accessed by using a browser

Check if you can ping the router's WAN ip. If you get 4 replies you should now be able to access the DVR remote(http:WAN_IPort). You can also check on this link:http://ping.eu/port-chk/ to check if that port is open.
