Just got back from Mississippi to Virginia after an 18 month Covid forced absence.
Tried upgrading a V2 from the old FW 126.96.36.199(?) to 188.8.131.52,
It had been set on (and worked great) continuous record. After upgrade when I went to playback all the recording PRIOR to the upgrade showed as present with the Turquoise bar but give a “no video at the selected time” message. After the upgrade seems to work fine.

For what it’s worth, I have updated all of my cameras with almost every production and beta firmware version that have been released. Never had any major issues with any release. Found a few bugs along the way - but that’s what beta testers should expect.
As for a forced update, the reality is that at some point almost all products have to draw the line on old hardware or software support. Eventually it is simply not practical (or possible in some cases) to support old versions. Your choice is to continue using really old versions, or update everything that requires it. Don’t believe it, try to get printer drivers for a modern printer for Windows XP (or Windows 95, 98, etx). Just one example…
