Updating the Radiance 21XX (2123, 2124, 2143, 2144)


 
The current firmware release is shown at the top of the list below. All updates are complete and contain everything from earlier updates. So, you only need to load the latest update. You can check your firmware revision by pressing "OK" on the Radiance Pro remote when the menu is not up, or navigate to the Info Menu.

A TechTip on how to do the update is included with each update. The update can be performed with a PC and the USB cable provided, or with USB-to-serial adapter and a null-modem serial cable. Running the update at the maximum rate of 230K BAUD works well for most PC's as long as they have wall power during the update.

The PC utility will tell you when it's done. Then the Radiance Pro will attempt to turn itself off. If it does not turn off after the update completes wait one minute, and then pull and plug back in wall power. If the utility finishes with an error (due to a communication error), just turn the unit off and back on, and rerun the utility. Once complete just turn the unit back on.

See the change log shown with each update for more details on the updates. All the configuration information is normally retained during an update (unless otherwise noted in the update log). So you usually do not need to write down your current settings.

If you have issues please email us at support @lumagen.com and give us all the details you can. When reporting issues let us know what software revision you're on.
