I upgraded the firmware on my Swann NHD-815 cams and now they don't work with Blue Iris but still work with the Swann DVR. They worked before the firmware upgrade so I know Swann did this to us. Problem is I have 8 of these things and now I am upset, so I am going to try to unlock them.

I don't know what firmware I was on before the upgrade. I found a post here and it started with "IPC_388M.541_16081000.ov4689.3MP.SW_AUS.pak" but when I did the update "IPC_388M.541_17051800.ov4689.4MP.SW_AUS.pak" was the one I used (note the 4MP) Swann baited me to upgrade.

Post about "IPC_388M.541_16081000" disabling RSTP

Anyways here are some of the things I have done.

1. Open Cam and solder in serial cable
2. Putty settings 115200 for serial
3. Password for root (blank) <- Humm
4. Start telnetd (./busybox telnetd)
5. Putty telnet UN:root PW:blank

So I'm stuck I tried to vi dvr.xml to update the setting and It wont let me. I guess I'm a noob at this :)


support_onvif="1"
support_rtsp="1"

I get "dvr.xml" file is read only
