    My first piece gave defect, the mandar to deal extreme, they sent me another, this came with the firmeware JA7208_1.5.0 6675 (Reldatetime 03/05/2012), different from the first this came very buggy, the cameras are no longer displayed in real time on the web client and the quality got really bad, I thought researching JA7208_1_6_5_6932B5 (Reldatetime 08/08/2012) version, because I'm still not updated with a little trepidation, but I think it must have some improvement.

    You can download it here:

    or the official website here:
    The model is the JA7208, 8 ports

    When I pluck up courage, I try to update, or if you succeed, leave your comment here.

    really tanks for that
    my old version are 1.2 something and now goes to JA7208_1_6_5_6932B5
    interface changed a lot - same old user and password login fine
    after upgrade, @25fps ch1 D1 2Mbps ... ch2 to ch8 CIF 1Mbps
    nice resolution for the price

    but be warned.. it change to china language and I cant read it!

    in the hope to help to go to english: first menu after logon changed and now have 10 options
    after login, the last menu aren't setup anymore - it is shutdown (#10)
    so you must use the menu over it (#9) - new window - top row, last one icon to the right, click
    another window, first icon top left, click
    so, if you know where to find, go back to your desired language (combobox#6)

    more info are included in the txt files or the zip - I used google to translate (please use google translate to do it better
    upload the file and it can do it well) this is part of the information:

    Hi lcname,

    Thanks for this info and the warning.
    I have downloaded the firmware and both files of ***.rom and help.rom are on my USB, but when I initiate the upgrade process, my DVR is saying that firmware file not found.

    What format of USB should I have? I have FAT32 and the files are in the root.

    Appreciate your help.

    Hi lcabz,

    We had the same problem as you. It wouldn;t upgrade the firmware, whatever we tried. I had our Chinese agent contact the factory, and they e-mailed him another firmware version, and this one actually worked. Maybe there are two versions of this DVR (JA7208 and JA7208S). Because we have these DVR's that state model JA7208S in System Info, System Version. Maybe this JA7208 V1.6.10 6932B10 firmware doesnt apply for this JA7208S model? I uploaded the firmware to our website for download: http://www.hardwarecity.nl/JA7208S_1_6_8_6932B8.rar. I hope it works for you too! Just unpack this in the root of your USB stick. FAT32 format is OK.

    I have also tried to upgrade my firmware on the JA7208 but now the unit is completely frozen on the start-up screen (indicating JUAN H.264). Nothing that I do seems to help. I have removed the onboard battery, tried to reset numerous times by starting up with USB, but no success. Please help.

    Did the upgrade reach 100%? If it didn't for whatever reason, your DVR will be useless. Flashing ROM is kind of risky, because if it's not 100% succesfull, the device will not work anymore, and try to upgrade again will not be possible either. It's the same with BIOS flashing for laptops. If something goes wrong, your pretty much screwed. In that case the ROM chip (which a BIOS chip is also) needs to be replaced.

    Yep that new firmware works a treat. It goes back to chinese and the last menu is no longer set up its shutdown so its the one above that for setup.If the machine turns off you've selected the last one. The user name and password are kept so log in with that to change. Once the set up icons display you're on the home straight and havnt completely fkd sht up so well done.
    Big improvements for motion detection and stability. Nice one DX :-)
