Hello im having problems updating my firmware & loop recordings. Firstly, the firmware remains stuck “installing the updates…” & it never updates. My other issue from the vava is my loop recordings are not registering, and haven’t recorded since july. I recently noticed because i went to check my vava loop recordings for the first time since july & noticed many months were missing. Please & thank you!
