      Hi, I think you're the subject matter expert on this. Appreciate your help: will I be able to connect ip cameras > PoE switches > NVR (DS-7616NiE2-16P) PoE port directly without passing through the router? Thanks

      Alastair,
      Seems like you are the resident expert on Hikvision here.
      I'm trying to help out a friend that bricked a DS-9016HFI-ST, and have only spent about 20 minutes with it so far, I tried to connect to the console (RS-232) port on the back to watch what was going on and saw nothing, the only thing that is not clear to me is if I need a null modem cable or a straight thru serial cable.

      Hi this is my first time posting I apologise if this is a repeat question
      Ive got a DS7608N from China that I bricked trying to update the fw
      I found some Chinese firmware that I managed to load on to the NVR using Putty TFTP USB TTL
      The NVRs working but all in Chinese
      I tried the english version after changing the lang with hiktools in cmd prompt
      So has anyone got fw that will work in this situation
      Thanks Nick

        The first thing to try is to ask the seller for a copy of the 'hacked to English' firmware that was on the NVR when you purchased it.

        Thanks for the reply, I've tried to contact them but they never replied. I'll try contacting them again. Failing that is there a way to extract the firmware from another nvr which is working (from the same supplier)

      Hi, this is Jack. I've a question for you, if you can kindly answer it.
      I bought a DS-7732N-E4/16P and I'm trying to update the firmware.
      I tried to change the firmware language (the NI release) using "hiktools lang digicap.dav 2" with no results.
      Can I modify my NVR as I can update it using NI's firmware release?
      Where can I download updated firmware for my NVR?
      Does I was stupid to buy the N version?

        To apply the firmware to the camera you don't need the zip password as the camera has this built in to the upgrade program.

      Hey bro-queation for you. I have a 7616ni-e2/8p which I purchased a year ago and just purchased the 7616ni-e2/16p to replace it. Is it possible to do a setting backup and install it onto the newly ordered device? I really dont wann go thru all the setting again

        I don't believe the NVR settings can be imported into a different NVR, from what I recall they are keyed to the original device but the camera settings should be possible. But there is very little in the camera settings export apart from passwords and addresses.

      Hi there!
      I have a problem with a Hi3516 in my camera module. I have to access Hi3516 as root. But I got an error like "None of nfsroot found in cmdline." when I type "su -" for access as root. I found your article and followed it. Unfortunately I stucked somepoint. I have Win 7 in PC and Ubuntu in VMWare. I did that steps by Ubuntu in WMware by serial communication but I couldn't. Can you help me about that?

        "None of nfsroot found in cmdline." that's not a fatal error, it can be ignored, just a leftover line in the startup script.
        I've never tried running a serial connection under a VM - it sounds optimistic.
        There are plenty of serial terminal under Ubuntu - even PuTTY is available, though not quite as nice as the Windows version.

        I see you have Win7 native, Ubuntu in VM. I thought it was the other way round.
        Have you tried cat1024 for the telnet root password?

        I tried but I don't know the username and password. I couldn't access via telnet. I typed "root" for username and nothing for password. Then I got "Login incorrect". Do you have any idea to help me?
