In past weeks some customers’ NVRs’ config files were revised remotely, causing the NVRs staying at logo page without entering the OS. This only happens to NVRs meet below 3 points:
- The NVR was produced before 2017, with firmware version earlier than 188.8.131.52.
- In user’s router setting, UPNP was enabled and users have completed port forwarding setting, which is actually needed only for old DVRs.
- User did not set an NVR admin password or the admin password is too simple.
Any customer whose NVR does not meet all the 3 conditions shall not have the risk. Yet we do suggest all customers to upgrade the NVRs to latest version to avoid any possible security issue.
- If you have access to your NVR’s menu, go to System setting – System admin – System upgrade, upgrade your NVR to latest version from online.
- If your NVR stays at logo, please unplug the Ethernet cable to see if you can enter the system menu.
If you can, plug the ethernet cable back, go to System setting – System admin – System upgrade, upgrade your NVR to latest version from online.
If online upgrade does not work, do local upgrade:
- Check your NVR’s model # on the bottom label. Download its latest firmware from, https://www.xmarto.com/downloads

In the meanwhile, we suggest all customers to set an admin password and keep record of the password.
