Recording to SD Card and NVR simultaneously

Hello, new here. I've got NVR RLN8-410-E and recently got 2 new 520A cameras. They have card slots and I want to be able to have a backup in the case the NVR is actually taken. I'd have the SD cards to fall back on. The card doesn't even show up anywhere that I can see and would love to be able to set this up on both cameras. Firmware is v188.8.131.524_20120701 and cards are formatted FAT32.
If you connect the camera to the NVR directly, the SD card status will not show in the NVR monitor or the APP/Client. But the video will record on the SD card. If you want to view the video, you need to take out the SD card and view it on the PC.
When you connect the NVR and the PoE switch under the same router and connect your camera under the PoE switch, you can add the camera as a standalone camera and be managed by the NVR. In this situation, it will show the SD card status when it works as the standalone camera.
