DS2 NetVu Password Reset

Thanks to Steven Reece for this!

On the later NetVu connected DS2’s the firmware and bootloader are vastly different. However, they are also much simpler to reset.
Put the DVR into bootloader by pressing Cam2 when you select shutdown from the menu.
Connect to Serial 1 at 38400 Baud, 8,1,N,N, using a Null Modem Cable and watch the DVR boot up. You should see lots of text go by. Eventually, this will stop, and you can press +++
Then issue the command “Userdef” and the passwords are reset.

Supposedly this also works via Telnet if you know the DVR’s IP.
