James, The MoVI operates most effectively with the highest stiffness settings you can obtain before getting oscillation. Before the firmware update MoVIs shipped with stiffnesses of 10,10, and 5 I believe. While this will stabilize the camera somewhat, it is not effective for any real kind of motion. At these settings you will notice a good bit of pan, tilt, and roll lag as you operate. To give you an idea, our Epic setups usually run Tilt-60, Roll-75, and Pan-120. Knowing that everyone has to adjust these settings from the default anyways we decided it was better to start at zero for a few reasons. So now you've powered up the MoVI after the firmware update and eventually get 3 solid lights. Thats good as everything initialized properly and your showing a full battery. Next, connect back up to the software and adjust stiffness settings for your setup. Lighter cameras will be lower while heavier setups up around the Epic numbers above. The other alternative is loading up the config file that was saved before the update. So you didnt save your previous config but youve got the MoVI tuned up for your camera setup? Next youll want to save those settings to the MoVI by going to "Write settings". This will preserve them to the MoVI so the next time you power down and back up, the MoVI will be ready to shoot with your camera package. I think this is the step your missing... You can also save the configuration file to your PC, Mac, or Android by using the "Save settings" function and load it from your device back on to the MoVI by using "Load settings".. then of course "write settings" to write to the MoVIs memory as above.
