Open the recorder's main menu and go to Camera. The first page will be Camera - IP Camera.
At the top of the list on the very left, there will be a check box next to the column name, Camera No. Check the box to select all your cameras.
Select the Upgrade button at the bottom of the list. This will open the file search window. Select the USB stick if not already selected and then select the 'digicap_5.4.5_170323.dav' file (the camera firmware) from the list. Then click the Upgrade button at the bottom of the window to start.
Open the recorder's main menu and go to Maintenance > Upgrade.
In the Local section, select the 'digicap_V3.4.80_170802.dav' file (the recorder firmware) and then select the button at the bottom. DVR should then load the new firmware and reboot.
After reboot, you may be asked to create a new password.
