is this coming down in the apps as well or do we just manually update using the cameras UI?
So we need to reset and setup from scratch or apply and continue?

It "should" be pushed through the app but sometimes can take a few days from when I receive the firmware from the global database.

FYI, noticing in both Opera and IE11, the file gets to 100% complete however the download never actually stops. IE just gave me a error saying file could not be downloaded even though it got to 100%.  :-\

File from FTP...I'll try again when I get home.

My upgrade failed- never completed (using the app). Also the camera disappeared from the app for no apparent reason, and I can't add it back. I tried resetting and such, it looks (from the LEDs like it running an on the WiFi, but, I can't connect using the QR code.

I've upgrading mine by downloading the FW file and sending it via the cameras web page. Upgrade successful.

Can you access the camera via MyD-Link app after a factory reset?

After a factory reset, I got as far as "Failed to attach device to this account". After 3 failures, the (Android) app crashed.

For me this firmware upgrade was a step back, made my Live View very laggy and slow to load, missed a lot more motion detection captures (possibly due to the the lag). Also caused my cam to be undetected for the 1st time in 2 years, had to power cycle it. Reverted back to v1.05.07 and working very well once again.

No iPhone here. I guess I can try and see what a Windows laptop can do, tomorrow. It's failing to set the password, now. What a flaky mess this is!

Did you happen to perform a factory reset after upgrading FW then set it up from scratch? Possible this maybe needed.

^No, I only did the standard firmware upgrade. Reverting back was easy and it's a known working version for myself so I'm satisfied with where I'm at. My co-worker has the same camera and is experiencing the exact same issue with the new firmware. If you watch the seconds count by in live view you'll be able to tell if you are having the same issue. Instead of counting normally (1, 2, 3, 4) it will be more like 1, 2....456, 7, 8....12, 13 if that makes sense. If I'm feeling ambitious I'll try again and then do a factory reset and report back.

Ok, I'll have a look at mine again and see. I just updated via web page and didn't do a factory reset either.

I just got around to trying Internet Explorer from a laptop (after it refused to talk to Chrome). I can't log in, either with what I guess is the default password, or with my previous password. It says it's a DCS-936L_5D on the login page, if that helps.

Ok, just check mine out. I used IE11x32 to log into it on a Windows 7x32 laptop thats wireless to the main router, DIR-890L currently online. Video is present after installing the plug-in.

After I reset it again, I was able to get in via the web interface. Everything appears to be working, only the Android app is useless, because there is apparently no way to add the device. I can only get as far as setting the password. After that, things fall apart (except, apparently the password is set, because that password let me get in through the web interface).

I'm trying the firmware upgrade through the web interface (which tells me it is 1.05.07 build 3306).

OK, everything is working. Evidently, the Android app can't work with firmware 1.05.07, which either my using the hardware reset, or something else after the automatic upgrade failed caused the device to revert to. So, it looks like there is no way to recover from an upgrade failure using only the Android app, as things stand.

Glad you were able to get it going. I'll have D-Link look in to the Android stuff.  ;)

I have had motion detection problems with V1.07.04 especially in the dark and have gone back to v1.05.07.
I initially regressed to V1.06.1 but had lots of problems getting back into camera.
Managed to login to camera directly after camera boot (flashing orange) as an AP (connecting to network DCS-936L...on laptop) then via 192.168.1.20 using internet explorer. This way I was able to overwrite v1.06.1 with v1.05.07 (great fun  :'( )
Took me a while to understand to reset my password in the web server interface to what it was before (as I had changed it), before connecting via mydlink.

Mydlink on android now works ok even with v1.05.07 with the correct password setup on the camera web server.

In summary, there seems to be motion detection issues with  V1.07.04 as other people have said, and D-Link should investigate further.

Was a factory reset and setup from scratch performed after v1.07 was applied?

I think so, I used the web interface for the update. After further experimentation, I have concluded it is required to have the sensitivity set at 100% (both versions). I have just recently re-installed v1.07.4 and with sensitivity at 100% it seems to be working OK for my purposes. I use the camera in my home-made webcam to keep an eye on a few hedgehogs in my garden. so the camera looks over their food and water bowels that are about 1 meter away. It would be helpful if there was an explanation as to how the sensitivity works and what is the difference between say a 85% and 100% setting. With an 85% setting I was failing to record, and with 100% I can get false positives.
