  1. I use https://au.cammy.com/, which backs up the last 30 days, also has built in monitoring. I don't have a requirement for any further storage. I just need it just in case something happens to the NVR. Also allows me easy access when out of home.
  2. Hi, I uploaded to the most recent version I could find, I managed to upload directly and didn't need any intermidiate firmware. Sorry I don't remember which site I downlaoded from.
  3. Just an FYI, I took the risk and gave it a try, and I can confirm that V3.4.96 works with CH cams (V5.2.0).
  4. Thanks, this was where I was going wrong. I didn't realise all the cameras had to be on different ports. Cheers
  5. Hi I'm hoping someone can help me here, I've read all the posts but still confused. I'm trying to setup port forwarding so I can access my cameras remotely, but I'm not sure what IP address I should be using. My cameras all have static IPs, connected to a switch which in turn is connected to the router. Do I use the routers internal IP as the IP address for the forward rule? Cheers
  6. Thanks, will strip the camera down and have a look. Was hoping there was another way of doing it, as now it involves getting ladders out.
  7. Hi One of my DS-2CD2332-I cameras decided to self reset, and on trying to change it's IP address back to what I need it to be my username/password no longer work. I've tried admin and 123456 etc and can't get it to work. If I select forgot password option it asks me for an authorisation code. What do I need to do to get it or how do I hard reset it? Thanks Alex
  8. It's now been almost a year and I've just found camcloud, just wondered if anyone else had found anything which would be worth trying?
  9. I still haven't dared update as I still can't find out if I have a Chinese specific NVR or not. Western Digital are going to replace the hard drive in case it's a hardware fault, looks like the firmware update will be next if I get the same issue with the new drive.
  10. With the Hikvision cameras, installing a different language firmware update e.g English on a Chinese camera will brick it. Hikvision have done this to stop people buying their cameras cheaper from China. This is what I'm concerned with, I purchased the NVR from Aliexpress years ago and I don't know if it is a Worldwide or Chinese product. The cameras I have from the same seller are a mix of both. Are the NVRs not region locked so to speak?
  11. Thanks, I know the model is supported but I don't know about the English firmware. Using the wrong language firmware is very likely to brick it. This is what I'm trying to find out as I don't know if mine is genuine worldwide model or if it's been hacked.
  12. Hi Sameri, sorry I never received an alert for your message and assume you've probably fixed it by now. But for anyone else reading this, I format on windows to GPT, then the NVR recognises the drive but then it still needs to be formatted in the NVR, I use the remote configuration in IVMS-4200 to format it.
  13. Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows what update version is safe for me to update to? I'm currently using v3.0.10, and quite a few times something has happened which has caused my HDD to lose initialisation. I'm then unable to format it in the NVR and have to take it out and reformat it. I've ran the WD health scan and there are no issues with the drive which makes me feel there's a bug with the NVR causing this. I've noticed there is a new release V3.4.95 build170626 on the Europe website but not sure if I can update to this, as I bought my NVR from Aliexpress a few years ago. http://www.hikvisioneurope.com/portal/?dir=portal/Product%20Firmware/Back-ends/Recorder/NVR/DS-7600NI-E1%28E2%29%207700NI-E4 The serial number has letters AARRxxxxxxxxxWCVU so I'm not sure if it's region coded or safe to update with English software etc. It's currently in English but I have no idea if it was hacked. Thanks for your help.
  14. Hi, I've been trying to setup HiDDNS, I've added my six cameras fine and they all show on the hik-online.com device status screen. However on clicking on any of the device link URLs after being redirected all six unique links point to the same one camera. I'm really not sure why it is doing it and any help would be much appreciated. Cheers Alex
  15. Thanks for the reply, I had already looked at those guys. They're the same price $10 per camera per month.
