In the router Dyndns settings it comes up with registration failed. I installed pfconfig which downloaded network magic and using the iPhone and aplayer I can now only see the dvr cameras when using 192. The aplayer will not show the camera via my dyndns hostname. Cheers Phil

I assume this is different to your other question? If not please continue there instead.
The error message probably means that you entered the wrong username (many people enter their email address) or hostname (it needs to be the full hostname, eg
myhost.example.com). If you tell us what the make, model and version number of the router is, and provide a screenshot (ensure you blur out any passwords and your DynDNS username) of your DynDNS settings.

It's a belkin router wireless model f5d8633-4. Did you mean a screen shot of the ddns settings in the router? If so that doesn't show much apart from Dyndns enable disable. Then below that it says registration failed. Below that is the password box and below that the host name 3 boxes with dots between each one.

Did you enter your DynDNS username, password and hostname?
Yes did that and they all show correctly in the router settings. As I said yesterday it worked fine until 10.30 am then just stopped. My ISP is Talk Talk, if that helps or not?
What stopped yesterday? Are you referring to the connectivity that you were discussing in your other question?
If so, you still haven't answered the question as to whether this is all connectivity or just inbound to your network.
What stopped yesterday. Aplayer on my iphone, lost connectivity from an external network or 3g into the DVR using the hostname from dyndns.
Has your WAN IP changed and your chosen update client failed to update the hostname? To identify which check the management page of your router for the WAN IP and compare that with the output of the command (from a command prompt)
nslookup myhost.example.com (using your real hostname).
Sorry yes I am referring to the connectivity I was discussing in my other question.
I have closed your duplicate question. Please keep all future discussion of this problem within this one.
its just inbound to my network. all local pcs work fine and can connect locally quite happily. really appreciate your patience here, as you can tell, complete novice here.
This does suggest that your WAN IP may have changed and that your update client isn't working. If that is the case let us know and we'll provide suggestions for what you can do.
Ok so what do I do next then please?
The next time it fails, perform the steps I listed above:
check the management page of your router for the WAN IP and compare that with the output of the command (from a command prompt)
nslookup myhost.example.com(using your real hostname).
Let us know if they are different, or the same.
The Router WAN IP and the host IP are way different, so what can I do next please?
That means that the update client isn't working. Either it isn't correctly configured or it doesn't update reliably. As it updated your hostname on reboot that suggests that it doesn't update reliably.
You will either need to run a software client on a computer or use another device on your network that has a functional update client. Whatever you chose that device must always be on.
