    Please Help: Upgrading chinese DS-7608N-E2 NVR Firmware

    Where did you read that? To the best of my knowledge - that capability is linked to the hardware model as opposed to the firmware on it.

    Easiest and most efficient way to upgrade Chinese Hik Cams from 5.20 to latest

    The Hikvision tftp updater tool can be a bit unreliable when R0 cameras are PoE-connected. But the tftp updater is only used for the initial brickfixV2 firmware load. It can be done via the web GUI, so the tftp updater is not needed. Yes, that's correct. No, the camera should reject an EN...

    Hikvision DS-2CD1143G0-I does it exist? is it authentic?

    The product data sheet suggests it supports HTTP, HTTPS and ONVIF. It looks normal enough. ONVIF requires an HTTP access. What did the browser show when you attempted to connect? Presumably SADP can find the cameras. Do the IP addresses shown in SADP match the address range of your LAN? What...

    In-situ just means leave them in place for the process. All the the access is over the network. That's the only connection that's needed. I'm assuming you'd be able to power-cycle them for the first firmware install.

    Easiest and most efficient way to upgrade Chinese Hik Cams from 5.20 to latest

    R0 cameras, presumably. There's no reason why you can't run the brickfixV2 method in-situ, with the cameras still in place. You don't need physical access. And you don't need to brick them either. The initial step can be done via the camera web GUI Maintenance menu. The internal layout varies...

    I had to reset my Hikvision NVR to factory default, now says "No link" in the Live feed for the hikvision camera's connected

    That's not quite what I meant. What I was thinking was using SADP to change the camera IP addresses to what the NVR is now requiring, and changing the camera passwords to match what you've now set in the NVR. Alternatively, if you know what the NVR password was before the reset to defaults, you...

    I had to reset my Hikvision NVR to factory default, now says "No link" in the Live feed for the hikvision camera's connected

    If you haven't already done this yet - I'm just curious how you did this, assuming you'd lost access somehow. And if you hadn't lost access - then the previously known NVR password is very likely what the cameras would have been using. Which could then be used via SADP to put the camera IP...

    Now would be a good time to make use of the various quite good 'self-service password reset facilities' in the NVR. See the 'Forgot Password' link on the NVR web GUI login page. Check out for example the Security Q&A one. Then if you forget the password again you won't have to reset all settings...

    [MCR] Hikvision packer/unpacker for 5.3.x and newer firmware

    Best to send him a PM - he's a forum member. The tool is good enough that the on-sellers can make good use of it.

    I had to reset my Hikvision NVR to factory default, now says "No link" in the Live feed for the hikvision camera's connected

    OK - scratch that easy possibility, none of the cameras has old enough firmware that they have the 'Hikvision backdoor' through which the password can be extracted. According to Google, those dome cameras have an internal reset button. Alternatively, if they are not very accessible, it would be...

    Converting EZVIZ C6TC from Chinese to English

    I expect you'll get there ... Sorry I can't help with that, I've never looked at EZVIZ. Presumably the comms are encrypted.
