    Still getting black screen when viewing. New update seems to have broken it. Was great previously so hopefully the developers can respond.

    Strange how everyone is saying the latest update has solved the black screen problem because the reverse is true for my SG5 . Same configuration as before but now all I get is one single black screen!

    I previously noted that i had a black screen with no options. I was mistaken turning my tablet revealed the options i needed to make it work after the updates. After the updates i needed to resign into my dvr. It probably would help in the future to have the settings saved or notify us about the need to restore the setting. Anyway the app works great, just in time for our vacation. After all these

    This app works great for me on an HTC One X and iPhone 5, but not on an Asus Transformer tablet. The opening screen comes up, then the main screen and some icons, then the icons disappear and the screen is blank. Is there a hot key I can hit to open a settings menu? Just revised this and raised my rating one star. I removed the keyboard from my tablet and it must have been stuck in landscape mode,

    It works great when I'm at home on my network but if I'm out and running on 4G lte...nothing but black.

    Was unimpressed with the black screen I always got on my s4. But with this new update it works every time! Its fantastic that I can control my swann Ptz now also. Great work guys, app works perfectly now!!
