After installing 1.007 the gain on the front camera is completely maxed out. The recordings are washed out to an extent that it's impossible to see anything at all. I tried changing the brightness settings to 1, and I rebooted the camera. No luck. The rear camera is fine.

Thanks for the warning guys.:love: I'll steer clear of 1.007 then. It's nice to have early adopters around to warn the slowies of update failures/screw ups.:)

Can confirm this.

It’s a shame, took me 5 minutes to find that Pittasoft has done it again. Front cam is a total failure after update to fw v1.007.

WIFI/Live View, Cloud/Live View and recorded files from front camera is totally useless.

Rear cam is okay.

Have sent email to support at Pittasoft with a couple of screenshots of the mess, will be interesting to read their excuses this time.

I have of course downgraded to v1.005 and everything is just fine again.

Found this tread a little late and now have the ‘white out’ front camera. I’ll have to downgrade tomorrow, poo.

I’ve had my 750 for two weeks having upgraded from a 430 2ch.

I was really looking forward to the Wi-fi enabled features but have found the whole experience frustrating. Jumped on the firmware update hoping the problem I have been experiencing would be resolved. No such luck.

My recuring problem is the “incorrect Wi-fi password” message when connecting to the camera. Password is correct and only a system restart will sort it. Problem happens every third or forth time I connect.

Any ideas?

On checking, I also have the white out problem grrrrrrrrr, why did I just buy this brand?

Anyone know where I can get version 1.05 please?

This is on the Blackvue site:
UPDATE (2018-06-12): we received reports of an issue with this version (front camera producing too bright/almost white videos).
We are investigating this issue and temporarily advise you to skip this version if you have not updated yet as we look for a solution.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused.
If you already upgraded to 1.007, below are links to download the most stable recent version (1.005), which you can install over version 1.007 until we issue a fix:

Hi Joklin.

I have only ever used the default password. Do you think it’s worth changing it or even removing it?

Appreciate your help.

Dan.

if it's at the default setting still and you have problems then the issue is probably not something you're doing wrong

1.007 is not available anymore for update via mobile app... and on their page there is also a note about this... and they suggest to use the latest stable version 1.005 ... So i'm now back to 1.005 on my DR750S-1CH ...

Well, I'm glad they made a statement and took down the link at least.
Notice they said go down to 1.005.

WONDER WHY:eek: /S
