Check what version of Firmware you have on the NVR 3.07 or 3.10 it's not hard to do, but the info given here is all over the place, but it does work.Am i correct in thinking that this will change my Hikvision NVR 7108N from chinese to english? I ordered from aliexpress and everything is in chinese. I have figured out which part of the menu allows a local file to be used to upgrade the firmware. Should I just follow the instructions as set out in the first post?
Is it not possible to use the option of a local file from usb to upgrade the firmware? Does it have to be via tftp? Or does version 3.10 allow upgrade from usb?Check what version of Firmware you have on the NVR 3.07 or 3.10 it's not hard to do, but the info given here is all over the place, but it does work.
Everything here is about ver 3.07. if you have version 3.10 it's easier but it's not posted anywhere but it still can be done.
The 1st thing you need to do is setup at TFTP server this is the quickest way Guide: How to setup a TFTP Server using tftpd32 in Windows - Tricks Guide
as you can't just copy the files to and from the NVR.
I managed to navigate the chinese menu and update the firmware via usb. No need for tftp. I had 3.10 already and just updated it with the 3.10 from hikvisioneuropes website and used the above method to modify the language to 2. All menus in english now. Thank you OP and whoslooking.No, not if you wish to change the GUI (TV Interface) from Chinese to English, 3.10 or 3.07 you only need to replace one file.
Yes, it's all Chinese now. Logical, since I have a Chinese cam and I changed the iLanguage setting to Chinese.
