48 Video Recorder Q. DirectIP NVRs with Dual FW copies in the NAND Flash memory and how it works 2015-07-06

DirectIP NVR keeps two copies of FW and NVR setup(configuration) images on its NAND memory. Usually, its first copy is used for normal operation.

Once in a while, NAND Flash Memory may fail, causing the unit to fail to boot up properly to load the Linux/NVR apps. When a DirectIP NVR detects 20 consecutive booting failures, it switches its active partition to the second copy to load the FW/setup properly. (It takes about 45sec for a full booting for DR-4/6100, DR-4/6200 series, so rebooting 20 failures will take about 15 min or so)

First, try pinhole reset and if the unit continues to reboot, wait about 15 min or so.
