I just installed Arlo Ultra and updated the firmware to the latest release. I also connected to my Arlo Pro 2 cameras to the new Ultra hub. Both Pro cams are working as expected, but the Ultra isn't.
Specifically, when I click on live view, it keeps saying "Connecting..." but nothing ever happens. Plus, all recordings show a 0 length. WiFi strength shows as 2/3 bars, similar to my Pro cams.
I have 4K streaming disabled.
Any clues what's going on?

I'm having the same issues, never had this issue before firmware update 3-23-19. I havent moved the cameras or changed anything. All cameras now have 2 bars, before update they had 2-3 bars. Please go back to the previous version. My cameras are only 20 to 30 foot from the base hub. Same as they have been since I bought them in January. I did have to find the right spot for the hub when I first set it up for best reception/signal, but has been great till now. You would think ARLO ULTRA would get it right on the second roll out to market. I have faith they will get it right. Like I said all was good til 3-23-19 update, not great but better then it is now.
I understand the frustration. I'm working with the engineering team to investigate your reports on this. Please be patient while we work to find a resolution.
I have the Arlo Ultra Cameras and am having the same issue with Live Viewing. However, I have noticed that the only cameras that have issue with Live Viewing are the ones that are tied as "CVR".
Has anyone found an acceptable solution? Trying to upgrade from Arlo original/hub to Ultra/hub, yet NONE of the cameras are viewable on the new hub, but the old ones work fine with the old hub. This really is a frustrating experience after plunking down $$$$$.
Thanks for the response.
I did remove them from the old base prior to adding them to the new base. Unfortunately, neither the original Arlo cameras nor the new Ultra ones are providing any video. “Unable to connect to media server” (quoting from memory) is the error in the browser view. In app, it simply times out. Nothing usable from the new Ultra set.
Having the same issue, just purchased the Ultra and get nothing but a connection error on the PC or white screens on iOS; the audio and light works but video does not, nothing records, can't even enter in positioning mode without getting a media server error
When replacing a base station with a SmartHub, first remove the cameras from the original base station and then go through the sync process for each camera with the new SmartHub using the primary account. If you're sharing the cameras using the Grant Access feature, you will need to reshare them again within your Grant Access settings on the primary account for them to be viewable again on any shared accounts.
The symptoms you describe could indicate an connectivity issue with the camera or an issue with internet speeds. Who is your ISP and what are your download/upload speeds? What does the signal strength icon show for the camera having the issue?
Thanks, James. That’s exactly what I did, however NONE of the cameras are working. Not even the brand new “Ultra” ones....so.....next guess? Still getting can’t connect to media server on all cameras when using the new Ultra hub.
lol thanks, jguerdat. Since the nice Amazon man brought it to my door, I’m trying to exhaust all possibilities, but I may end up going that route! James PM’d me, so I’m hopeful he has something.
Really appreciate the assistance from all. Thank you.
After some more troubleshooting, it looks like there is some unhappiness with our Cisco ASA and the new hub. Will have to get the hubby to do a packet capture and see what’s going on. Shot in the dark, but if anyone has had a similar experience and has a few lessons learned to share, I’d appreciate it.
Thanks again, all.
