Hi @David Drewitt

You will need to install iVMS-4200 for Mac to update the older R6 cameras, as far as we are aware there have been no updates to the R6 cameras that will improve browser access on Macs. If you plan to continue using the older R6 cameras you will best off using iVMS-4200 for managing and viewing these cameras on a Mac.

@David Drewitt my Mac is Catalina 10.15.6 and I have 2 R6 cameras with fw V5.5.82 build 190909.

with Safari Version 13.1.2 (15609.3.5.1.3) There is no live view but I can access the config tab and get to the maintenance> upgrade page.

The latest version of Chrome (Mac) does not work at all, an earlier version might.

I find Hikvision software releases and versions confusing. The Hikvision US site shows iVMS-4200 v2.0.0.10 Mac64 as the latest available version... but the UK site shows 2.0.0.12. Anyways... I tarballed the 2.0.0.10 version in /Applications and installed 2.0.0.12. It seems more stable (2.0.0.10 is awful for bugs) in the short time I've used it.

Update.. I noted there are still issues with the individual camera tool bars from iVMS bleed through to other active windows which is a pain.
