First to address the ISDV, if the unit is dead it is likely it can't be brought back. You could try attaching to the computer to see if it will draw power that way and format the drive that is the memory of the camera. Be sure a memory card is in the ISDV so you can place the ISDV firmware back on the camera it may work. I watched the clip and I don't notice the same thing. When he draws out the word "TO" when he says last year I went to" the audio is ON. I'm not seeing the issue you saw. Where in the clip does sync issue occur?
it will be a lost cause

Hi Fishycomics!

I just got a P-DVR and people are saying that it's the same as the MPVR. So can I do the same upgrade that you did to your MPVR making it a PVR? If I can then I'll be really excited lol.

I am notresponsable for any actions of whatwil happen.

1 MPVR ,(dv6800) firmware only

2. PVR (dv8800) firmwware only

3 Firmware 1501 default can be Upgraded to 1707

4. Firmware 3104 default can be upgraded to 3501

if you do not have 1501 firmware and have 1600 series? you will not go back

If you have lower than the 3104 ir higher than 3104 which I had 3201

than 3201 is history

Contact Aiptek, tel them your problem and demand the correct software? ifyou do not fall under thesecatagories.



can you upgrade a dv6800 to a 8800 yes but you'll have a non fuctioning camera.

Hi , sorry to bother you fishy. But where the battery is taken out, the number is DZO-v38. I don't want to upgrade to the PVR anymore, but is there an upgrade that can make the words match up with peoples' mouths that is proven to be safe?

Elle...... not a bother at all.



I am not upset at you? I am upset at Aiptek.ink:blah:

1. your Firmware better match up with the topic of the MPVr 2k6 (dv6800)

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=92

I want to appologise why no one brought this to my attention why did no onesee there was a missing mpvr 2k6

you may you better make sure your hybrid has the 1501 firmware if not, once you load up you'll be nevergoing back to the firmware you orginally had.

so 1.

1. what is your Firmware? not 1501? call aiptek.

El grande

since you said youown a 3103 PDVR model. the HW01,02,03 may also mean a great deal, possably origan (spellcheck) (location).

3104 is the USA verson. with Hw01

I am guessing not assuming ( you know what they say when you assUme).

once you load the new one in your old one is H.I.S.T.O.R.Y.

I say on Monday you make the cal to Aiptek? Understanding members may not be of proper age. (profile M.I.A. information)

And ask them to give you the default Firmware?

1. If it does not work? what would happen

A. you'll be upset, and like me, waiting for the store to open

B. it was a gift for you, for me mine is outdated, must go by other means, which Aiptek is forcing me to do now.

C. or have a happy outcome if all works fine

Why I cannot eliberate enough. I am the Guine Pig and no longer gonna attempt to upgrade unless I have done my Homework first

again

1. I made a call.

2. I explained my problem, and demanded a default firmware

aiptek MPVR2ks firmware 1501,

3. recieved 1501, and 1707.

4. asked a step further ? what are te fixs?

If I made this call. would it be advisable for you to do the same?

YES. if you like to take the chance it'll work, but you will not go back. and that is why I am telling you PLEASE PLEASE use your Judgement

on another note, how many members here are answering?

if others that own your exact model can come foward

but it's a one in a million chance now? like the lottory right?

I do wantto be of better help but i cannot help but say Please contact aiptek, andalso fill out my report so we can address this issue as well........

Hi, I've just got the black PVR from BestBuy and the model is V58 and I tried to do the upgrade but it's not working right after updating with the 3501 one. The screen is totally white in the beginningwhenthe power is turned on. Looks like it's not compatible with this model, which I didn't know. I wonder if you can help me to get the right one. Btw, my original firmware seems to be 3200. Thank you so much.

Jazz..

welcome aboard. call aiptek, and get from them. my understanding is:

before any attempt make sure you have the default firmware

which you do not?

this means you should be contacting Aiptek? if the MPVR firmware does not have the default you have, youneed again to contact them.

1 less person complaining means they are doing something right

1 more person complaining will get a lil closer to our troubleswe are having.



Do not attempt the Is-dv load?
