Hikvision have released V4.21.005 for their K-series NVRs (only 76 77 86 NI-K2 K4 K8) , which you can download from the UK portal here:
HIKVISION UK PORTAL


I have checked:

Is this correct?
V4 firmware for the K-series NVRs at the UK portal?
If so, do you have any Release Notes for it please?


And double-checked:

Hi Phil
This is not a mistake, we can use this firmware on the K series NVR,
But notice not all K series NVR can support it .
Only 76 77 86 NI-K2 K4 K8 can support this firmware .
Thank you

And am assured this is correct!

If all is OK, it is a milestone update.
We have been waiting a long time for V4 Firmware / GUI 4 to be made available for Hikvision's K-Series NVRs (we were never able to even get confirmation that it WOULD be made available.
Bear in mind that V4 firmware was made available for the I-Series NVRs two years ago!


With thanks to forum member @Thebug who spotted it first

The Release Notes are attached, NB - I know these notes only reference I-series NVRs.

Please add your responses below with any feedback regarding how you get on with this new V4 firmware.

Nice to know, where there any problems updating? Read somewhere you had to setup from scratch, old recordings no longer worked and needed to format the hdd

Setup is fine but I did format the Hdd as old recordings had gone.

Does anyone know if this update will work with a DS-7604NI-K1/4P(B). You will note that I have entered the K1 in bold because the original post above seems to refer only to even numbered K Series NVR's.

Many thanks for any guidance on this.

I meant to ask Phil at #11 above, is there a reason given as to why it's not for the 7604 series and will it be available at some future time?

No reasons provided, and unfortunately we have no idea whether the 7604 will in due course be able to use V$ firmware / GUI.

i have downgraded the firmware and its working again as it should on all cameras, so looks like its a firmware problem, on the new version, think i will stick on the previous firmware !
