Updating firmware on 71xx DVR

Postby damienedwards » Thu Jan 26, 2017 7:42 am


I had a message pop up saying that new firmware is available for my 71xx DVR which I have hard wired to my router.

Whenever I try to update it starts and then terminates almost immediately with another pop up saying "cannot connect to FTP server"

I have looked in the settings and the FTP field is blank aside from 4 dots.

what do I enter in this field as I suspect this is the issue!!!

Or am I better off extracting directly from the HiK vision site onto a USB...................just more convenient if I can do all this on line.

HI Damien,

I would just download the firmware (.dat file) which you can then select and upgrade from within the maintenance menu of the online interface...
