It would appear my new Ring 2 will not update its firmwar, has been on for almost a week and its stuck on 1.22.27 and there is no option to force update... how do we get the bloody things to update... I am having nothing but issues with this new device (just upgraded from Ring1) and I am assuming most are due to the very old firmware.

So, I have just upgraded from a Ring 1 to a Ring 2 doorbell. the Ring 1 worked very well so decided to upgrade to the better model. Which I am not regretting because having nothing but issues. Live View is enabled, but it just wont work. When I select Live View, it sits on "Activating Device..." for about 60 seconds then fails but doesn't say why. Also I have a Chime inside, when someone rings the bell or motion is detected it is extremely delayed to get to the chime or even my phone, and sometimes it will alert multiple times (IE someone rings the doorbell, the chime goes off 30 seconds later, then again 1 min after, then again 1 min after). So I thought network strength, even though the doorbell is in the exact same spot as my 1 was. But doing the built in network tests are coming back fine. I am also occasionally getting ghost motion alerts, my phone will go off (when im at work) saying its detected motion, but there is no recording to go with it, I purely get the notification, but then nothing shows up in the app at all... All round this is bloody frustrating, you think you are upgrading something and all you do is go backwards.
