HikVision NVRs - should I purchase a -I or a -K suffix NVR?Dumb question here, but...
I have looked on the website and I do not see a clear difference between the -i and -k series. What is the real difference?
I then asked if they're likely to update the 3 series firmware in the future, as I was disappointed that a product that's currently on sale lacks this compatibility. They said......The NVR 4.0 firmware is being updated so certain devices can be logged on using any browser.
Unfortunately the 3 series firmwares are not being updated for now.
There is no NVR 4 firmware for your device. You can use Firefox v51.01 provided you turn off auto update as a way round IE.
I'm crossing my fingers that they might update the K(B) with the 4 series firmware, not sure how likely this is though. We have a few Chromebooks in our household which obviously can't be used for video playback, and I try and avoid IE on my windows laptop. I'd also guess that IE will stop supporting NPAPI in the future, as most other browsers have.The 3 series firmwares will still be updated when necessary but the browser plugin unfortunately won't be.
