About the updates: The most current firmware upgrade for the
Radiance XD/XD3D is shown at the top of the list below this section. You can
check your firmware revision by looking under "Info" on the menu or by
pressing "ok" on your remote when the menu is not up. The update can
be performed with a PC and a null-modem serial cable, such as the one
included with the unit. See the change log at the bottom
of this page for more details on the updates. All updates are complete and
contain everything from earlier updates so there is no issue with skipping
Running the update: (For more detailed instructions see the Tech
Tip on updating included in the zip file) Download the new update and unzip it. Connect
up your PC and your unit with a DB9-F to DB9-F null-modem serial cable.
Insure you have a stable power supply to the unit as there is a window of a
few seconds at the end when the flash is reprogrammed that if the power went
out it would then need to be reprogrammed at the factory--don't do it during
a lightning storm!
Turn the unit on. On the PC double-click (run) the downloaded utility.
Select the appropriate com port (check Device Manager/Ports) and baud rate
(57600 usually works well). Select the desired Update Method (Auto unless
you are attempting to reinstall the same firmware version and are having
problems) and click on "Start" when ready to begin. The utility will start
updating, which will take a few minutes. A download warning screen on your
display lets you know that the update is in progress.
The PC utility will finish and tell you when itís done, and the RadianceXD
will turn off. Turn the unit back on, acknowledge any on-screen completion
message, and you are ready to continue using the RadianceXD.
If the utility finishes with an error (due to a communication error), just
turn the unit off and back on, and rerun the utility.
Note: All the configuration information is normally retained
during an update (unless otherwise noted in the update notes below) so you
usually won't have to write down your current settings or redo anything.
Reporting issues and making suggestions: 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.
Fix for loss of video issues with
chromebox and other HTPC type sources. Fix for constant height
setup with certain 3D formats and scale bias off causing
incorrect picture. Fix for test patterns with side-by-side or
top-bottom 3D output. Expanded size limits for rs232 "ZY2"
command to match onscreen menu limits. Update time
~3minutes @57k from previous firmware
Fix for output setup issue with
being unable to select desired Style after being previously set.
Added 24 Hz to the direct vertical rate command ("menu 04"). Update time ~3 minutes @57k
from previous firmware
Fix for a bug which under rare
circumstances could give strange colors in grayscale that a user
may have remedied by turning off and back on.
Update time ~9
minutes @57k from previous firmware
A bugfix for CUE filtering from
072114 firmware when upscaling. Improved the CUE filter menu,
filter did not immediately turn on when enabled.
Update time ~9 minutes @57k
from previous firmware
Small horizontal and vertical
chroma improvements. Added a CUE (chroma upsample error) setting
under Input: Video Setup: RES: Picture. Fixed an issue to handle
720p50 framepacked 3D source. (note: bug occurred in 072014 and
this update replaces it)
minutes @57k from previous firmware
Another rs232 test pattern
problem fixed. An issue with screen being blank fixed. Problem
with using left arrow on remote for aspect changes fixed.
Update time ~3
minutes @57k from previous firmware
Bugfix for certain combination of setting
and sources that can give an occasional momentary screen tear in
video. Added an option in menu under Input: HDMI Setup:
Aspect Setup called Aspect Set which enables setting the
same input aspect across src resolutions for the current memory
for remote/rs232 input aspect commands. This is intended for
control systems that know the source aspect but may set the
aspect before the source changes modes.
Update time ~3 minutes @57k
Fix for an issue with Cambridge
audio receiver in front of Radiance resulting in severely
green/pink colors if using Radiance default video EDID. Fix for bad onscreen test patterns within the
grayscale command. Fix for an issue with some DVI input displays
in establishing a connection for video when display is powered
up more than a minute after Radiance. Update time ~3 minutes @57k
from previous firmware
Fixed up an older bug (recently made worse
in 112513) which depending on equipment and settings could
intermittently (or regularly) result in delaying turn-on of
video output. Could be double normal output turn-on time and
feasibly even longer.
Fixes audio issues seen that
could give noise or no audio with some equipment. Added a
shorter option for audio mute length under Input: Audio Setup:
Mute Control. The default is mute length is "Long" but options
include Short, Medium, and Long. Previously, the options were
only Short and Long which have now become the Medium and Long
values. Several small menu improvements and fixes. Small
improvement in input switching speed.
Added 2 APL patterns to the Gray Window
pattern group. Added a custom window size and a custom window
size + APL pattern to the User Color window pattern group.
The 2 new patterns added to the User group use the RGB level
that are settable in the first 3 patterns. The custom sizing
allows setting the window size in .1% steps. The custom size +
APL pattern allows setting both the window size and an APL. As
you vary the size of the window the background level is adjusted
to give the desired APL. If it can't meet the requested APL, a
greater-than or less-than sign is displayed next to APL to
indicate this (.ie setting RGB=240,240,240, the custom size to
90.0% and the APL to 30% would give the greater-than sign next
to APL). Added rs232 access to the new patterns. The rs232
format for the new User size pattern is "ZY7TsSSSRRRGGGBBB" with
SSS being 3 digits (000-999) for 0-99.9% area of screen.
The rs232 format for the user defined size + APL pattern is
"ZY7TsSSSAAARRRGGGBBB" with AAA being 3 digits to be set to
000-100 for 0-100% APL.
Fixes issue for some DVI displays not
working in 052813-091013 firmware. Small improvement to the
report generated by the rs232 input mode change command under
Other: I/O Setup/RS-232 Setup.
The 061813 revision did not completely
resolve the video loss with 3D, this new update does. Fix for
zooming and filling screen with letterbox input aspect on 2.35
output aspect display. Shortened HDCP unavailable onscreen
message to 3 seconds. Added 1080p25 output mode.
Fixes some issues created by update 040213
(loss of composite/svideo and other input issues). Fix for some
other older issues including green colored pip and sometimes
magenta colored sources.
Fix for YCbCr (422 or 444) output
precision issue. Improved scaling. Fix for video momentarily
blanking output with 3D video from some sources. Fix for
interlaced vrate calcualtion in custom timing menu. Some other
Some small precision improvements. Added a
couple of shortcuts, "menu 0830" and "menu 0840", bring up 30
and 40 IRE warmup screens. Improved accuracy of 8 to 125 point
gamut conversion for calibration data setup before the 090412
Improved Pal (576i) deinterlacing for some
sources. Added conversion capability for 1080p24 frame-packed 3D
to 60/72 Hz frame-sequential 3D output. Added direct commands to
disable HDCP on either output (press "menu 0981" do disable HDCP
on output 1 or "menu 0982" for output 2). Note that for sources
with HDCP, the video on the output is only viewable if HDCP is
Fixes for a couple of issues occasionally
giving error conditions (onscreen corruption, blank screen)
while running a calibration involving a lot of rs232
communication. Added NLS support to new ZQI19 rs232 input aspect
status command. ZQI19 now responds with 0-8 corresponding to
1.33, Lbox,1.78,1.85, 2.35, NLS 1.33, NLS lbox, NLS 1.78, NLS
1.85. Other small fixes.
Bugfix for video/menu flaking out
infrequently but seen during prolonged use while calibrating.
Fixed output copy command for CMS to include 125 pt gamut data
and fixed an error that could cause configuration corruption
when performing an output copy of CMS data. New fpga in this
update for XD/XE for several systems having an issue with input
Fixed CMS 8 point to 125 point conversion
bug (a certain CMS value could cause out of whack colors after
updating). Fixed the Save:Undo command for the new 125 point
gamut. Fixed issue of not showing a warning about configuration
changing after altering 125 point gamut. Added rs232 command to
report current input aspect, ZQI19 returns 0-4 which translate
to 1.33, Lbox,1.78,1.85 and 2.35 input aspects.
Beta 090412- NEW 125 point CMS added!
That's a 5x5x5 matrix for color
correction and calibration. A big upgrade from our previous 8
point matrix which allowed calibration from only the corners of
the color cube. The new 125 point gamut has it's calibration
points located at 0, 25, 50, 75,100% of video min/maximums. The
older 8 point gamut was located at digital min/maximums which
did not give quite as much precision. Previous calibration
values in the CMS gamut menu are interpolated to the new gamut
locations so the numbers displayed in the menu will be
different. This doesn't change your previously performed
calibration results. Instead, the changed values represent the
same calibration but from the new gamut locations. You now have
the option of calibrating with 8 or 125 points. If you perform
an 8 point calibration you can change to the 125 point mode and
keep the previously set 8 points. The other 117 points are
interpolated from the original 8 when changing from 8 to 125
point mode. With this many points to adjust, auto calibration
really helps. They have both added support for our new 125 point
gamut with excellent results.
Note: We are in the process of
updating the Configuration Utility to support backing up the new
125 point gamut data to a PC via rs232. This should be available
Gamma correction: Range has been
extended and can now be adjusted in steps of .01. Test Patterns: Added 2.35
letterbox geometry overscan pattern. Bugfixes,etc: Problems
with Top/Btm 3D formats to Frame Packed and Frame Sequential
output was fixed. An issue of using test patterns with certain
settings not restoring the input aspect was fixed. Improvement
to output setup menu allows multiple changes within the command
to be performed more easily. Added sending 601/709 color
information needed by Darbee Darblets with firmware before
2.8.2214. Added a direct command to globally disable video on
output 1, "menu 0985". Other small fixes and improvements were
Bugfix that in a few systems would cause
Radiance to not show a picture or in some cases a much longer
wait to get a picture than necessary. This problem was occurring
after 011612 updates. Small menu issue with pip fixed.
Fix for a couple issues that crept into
firmware over the past few months with using non-hdcp HDMI
sources and Radiance not giving a picture. Fix for output
masking use with side-by-side 3D output not showing right eye.
Fix for several 3D input formats being converted to frame packed
with judder and a fix for 3D top-bottom in & out. Fix for
issue in 030112 with test patterns not sized correctly when used
with vertically shrunk output picture. Other minor menu
Adds frame-packed and Top-bottom 3D types
to the output setup command so you can now go from any input 3D
type to any legitimate output 3D type you wish. Fixed Top-bottom
-> side-by-side 3D conversion. Added an indicator for test
patterns as to whether it's a reference pattern or adjustable
pattern (an A or R is shown). In the test pattern menu, pattern
commands were added (both adjustable and reference) that are
displayed in a user specified test mode. The test mode is
settable in this menu and the output mode, 3D type, CMS and
style are all specified. Bugfix for pattern commands sometimes
causing odd values to get entered in the color gamut for some
Fixed an issue with 122x11-013012 firmware
that could cause 3D polarity issue or loss of genlock when
changing memories on an input in some situations. Some
improvements to operation with CRT 3D Glasses Sync Box. Added
rs232 command to delay rs232 command processing--so for instance
you could send the poweron command, wait 5 seconds, then put up
a message. The new command is "ZWxxx<CR>" and the delay xxx, in
milliseconds, can be up to 30000 for a 30 sec delay.
Fixed warmup test pattern (broken in
previous update). Rearranged a couple of the newly added
contrast patterns. Added a video black and video white
fullscreen pattern after the newly added checker patterns in the
Contrast pattern group. Added access to the contrast patterns in
the 21 point grayscale command.
Fix for an issue causing inability to set
mode correctly using the Auto output mode setting with certain
Panasonic displays. Fixup of issue with the output copy command
not working in some cases. Added a number of contrast test
patterns. BlkRamp has background at video black (16/255) with
static and flashing ramps of 0-31 with a large marker indicating
video black in the ramp. WhtRamp is similar with background of
video white (235/255). LowClip has static and flashing ramps for
gray, red, green and blue with all values ranging from 0-31.
HiClip is similar but around 235/255. Added checkerboard,
inverse checker and a checkerboard with center marks. Added a User window test
pattern group that allows entering r,g,b values. Added '1' key to test
pattern controls in order to cycle opposite direction through
patterns in a group from the '4' key. The rs232 test pattern
command format was adjusted for the new User window pattern. The
pattern is specified with 's' and the format for the rs232
command with this pattern group is 'ZY7TsSRRRGGGBBB'
where 'S' is defined to be 0-2 for medium, small, full
field size. 'RRRGGGBBB' is the rgb color value with 3
digits specified for each and a range of 0-255. An example
rs232 command for a medium, red window would be
"ZY7Ts0255000000". Some other small bugfixes.
Some minor fixups and improvements to
input EDID functions. Now allowed to set up different video EDID
on input memories to aid with some multimedia PC issues. This
enables the user to change memories on the Radiance in order to
direct the PC to change video modes. Added "menu 7"
shortcut for quicker access to Quick Keys menu. Other minor menu
fixups and clarifications.
Production 011612 Modified
the newly added Lbox Crop command from previous release such
that the setting is common to all input resolutions for a given
input & memory. The command was also renamed to LBox Zoom and
you can now easily set it for all inputs/memories within the
command. Fix for PC input level setting causing video to flash
off/on. Improvements to switching input resolutions on a source.
Bugfix for issue with video judder under certain conditions.
Some improvements to Pip functionality.
Added a setting to not crop '4:3 Lbox' or
'2.35' input aspects on a per memory & resolution basis. This
new setting can be found in the menu under Input:Video Setup:
RES: Size: ASPECT: Lbox Crop. The default is 'Normal' which
properly crops the top & bottom for these input aspects
depending on your display aspect. The 'Off' setting is useful
for theaters with top or bottom display masking systems. In
conjunction, the vertical shift setting is used to move the
image appropriately. Fix for XD only issue with 1080p24
framepacked 3D sometimes flashing every few minutes. Fix for Pip
window placement with certain 3D display modes.
Production 122211 (BUG
WITH 3D new update shortly to fix
3D modes broken in this update) Fix for some intermittent
audio/video issues in some systems with 120111-120611 firmware.
Fix for a case of auto input selection making unwanted input
change. Fix for not setting output mode correctly (went to
480p instead of 1080p) on powerup or when displays turning
off/on in some systems. Fix for not always rebooting unit after
update (note this fix comes into play for updates subsequent to
Production 120111 (replaced
112911 update which had HDMI issues in some systems) Fix for not
getting video up quickly (15 seconds or longer) with some AVR's/Displays
in certain situations. Fix for a case of not detecting 3D video
on input. Fix for issue in 102111-110211 firmware having issue
switching to some 3D inputs formats quickly depending on the
prior 2D video input resolution. Other HDMI handshaking
improvements and other minor bugfixes.
Production 110111 Bugfix
for auto input select not working in some cases. Bugfix for an
update issue in 1016-102111 revisions when using the "force"
option that afterwards could pop up unwanted message
regarding updating and could make for lengthy power on times.
HDCP error message fix.
Bugfix for non-typical setup that could
sometime power-on with a gray screen. Bugfix for issue with some
downstream devices sometimes not locking onto audio on SD<->HD
switches. Bugfix for selecting 48khz stereo audio and losing
audio when switching to HDMI input. Several small menu display
bugfixes. Fix for not always reporting mode change when option
was enabled. Another case of HDCP error message incorrectly
being displayed was fixed.
Bugfix for previous update (101611)
causing analog inputs to sometimes not be displayed. Added new
capability for PC gaming with 2.35 screens. If you set up your
PC for a 1920x816/817 output resolution almost all current games
will render with a wider field of view. If you select 2.35 input
aspect on the Radiance with this type of input mode the
Radiance can then output it correctly on a 2.35 screen using
either anamorphic lens (Radiance output aspect set to 2.35) or
optical zoom (Radiance output aspect set to 1.78 aka 16:9).
Production 101611 Bugfix
for input menu when using Pip and pressing numbers to select the
Pip source. Improvements to auto input selection to avoid issues
with mode changing on the current source. Added reinterlacing
command options. Bugfix for issue with handling of timing
descriptors in some DVI displays. Improvements to "help" within
some commands. Some other small bugfixes.
Improves auto input selection by allowing for an HDMI input to
detect a "turn on" event and switch to it (the auto input
selection command is in the menu under Other:I/O Setup:Auto
Select). Improved the Factory Reset command (under the
"Save" menu) to allow for more selective resetting of settings
(.ie all settings except CMS). Added configurable labels for
custom output modes. Added new 36bpp output mode for specialized
displays that can accept it via 2 inputs (new setting is found
in the menu under Output:Styles:StyleX:HDMI Format:Type).
Production 090911 Due
to a bugfix first made in 090111 there was a slow-down on
acquiring video after a mode change which was most notable with
cable/satellite type sources. This update speeds it back up to
what it was before 090111 and may be a bit snappier then even
pre-0901 releases. Several bugfixes and improvements to pip &
pop including the ability to set the Pop background to a gray
level rather than black using the Output: Style: Graybar:
Top/Bottom level setting.
Adds automatic input selection. This can be configured in the
menu under Other:I/O Setup:Auto Select. In this menu you can add
inputs to a priority list. This prioritized list of inputs is
used by the Radiance when the current input source is turned
off. The Radiance will then switch to the highest priority input
in the list and continue thru the list until it finds an active
video signal. If no active video is found it will wait ~8
seconds and cycle thru the list again.
Production 090111- Bugfixes:
Issue in 081411-082811 with scaling being turned on when it
shouldn't be in some cases. Issue with 1080i60 3D side-by-side
to 120hz frame-sequential mode giving juddery video. Issue with
some mode changes on HDMI inputs sometimes causing loss of
picture. Couple other small bugs fixed.
Production 082111- Several
bugfixes for previous changes made in 081411 update.
ability to set gray level for the border created by shrinking or
masking the output. This border was previously always set to
black. Setting it to a gray level can be useful for some in
order to use the shrink /mask commands and avoid burn in on
large plasma displays. This new command is located in the menu
Added ability to enable rs232 reporting of
Radiance output mode changes useful for control systems that
need to take other actions when this occurs. This new setting is
found in the menu under Other:I/O Setup/RS-232 Setup. When
enabled and an output mode change occurs the Radiance will send
a string reporting the new mode information as if the rs232 mode
inquiry command ("ZQI18" ) had been issued to the Radiance.
Adds rs232 command to set 3D eyeglass polarity, new command is
"ZY48X", where X can be either '-' or '+'.
Production 070111- Adds
ability to genlock sources running at 24/60Hz to 96,120Hz output
refresh rates (although genlocking to 96Hz output is only
appropriate for 60Hz input rate when the input is
interlaced and a film source).
Production 062611- Fix
for stutter/judder issue sometimes affecting video when
genlocked and input/output refresh rates are the same, most
noticeably 24Hz sources with 24Hz output mode. Added 720p96Hz to
output mode list.
Production 062511 Bugfix
for increased video judder occurring in 0602-061611 revisions
with 24Hz in and 24Hz output rate. Added ability to genlock 24Hz
sources to 96/120 Hz output modes. Couple other small bugfixes
and improvements. Updated Documentation-
Production 061011 Big
improvement to the user interface of the output setup command.
It's much more powerful and is now located under the Output
menu----so no need to go wading thru the input menu to set up
the output settings anymore (although we've kept the
output setup command in the input menu for anyone who's used to
finding it there.) With this new command you can do
things, for instance, like quickly check what all the
inputs are using for CMS or if you want to set memory A of all
inputs to use Style3 and leave the other output settings
untouched you can do that easily. We've updated the tables of 8
output modes/CMS's/Styles now to display checkmarks next to
setups that are being used. Also several bugfixes.
Production 060311- Fix
for bug in 060211 firmware that caused a few selection items in
the menu to not be completely readable.
Production 060211 Bugfix
for vertical shift changes sometimes causing a split screen for
some output modes. Bugfix for 1080i-50 side-by-side 3D input
being displayed as 720p100 frame sequential causing judder.
Clock jitter improvement which can improve some display modes on
CRT's and may improve digital displays locking on to the
Radiance output more quickly.
Production 052611- Small
change so the Output:Style: Mask and Output: Style: Shrink
commands allow changing/displaying test patterns with the 'Alt',
'Prev' buttons . When adjustments are made in these
commands and you have an internal pattern up the output will
flip to video but you can flip back to the test pattern by
pressing 'Prev' now.
Production 052511 Bugfix
for not always correctly changing between some 3D output types.
Adds automatic turn-off of video to a display that does not
support 3D if the output video is 3D (this can be overridden by
setting Output:Global Setup: 3D Options: Out is 3D capable to
Yes). Adds a remote control command sequence for input aspect of
1.85 letterboxed in 1.78, press 'Alt' then '1.85'. Improved FPGA
performance for high-performance display modes with '+' option.
Production 051511- Adds
more 3D conversions so frame-packed, top-bottom or side-by-side
sources can all be sent out as side-by-side if desired. The
3D OutSelect command was
updated to reflect this with the addition of a side-by-side 3D type selection. The
optional Quick Keys menu was
changed to always be present (you'll see it at the top level of
the menu) since we've added the manual
selection of 3D types to it (side-by-side/top-bottom/off). There
were previously only direct commands for this which are:
"Menu031" = side-by-side, "Menu032" = top-bottom, "Menu030" =
off. Added the ability to prefix direct commands (like
"Menu031") with the 'Alt' button so the menu does not show up on
screen. This should be useful for programmable remotes or
control systems that wish to keep the menu from momentarily
Production 050311 Bugfix
for 0501-0502 revisions causing audio/3D loss due to the PCH200
fix. Improvement to IR remote handling.
Production 050211- Bugfix
for change in 050111 sometimes causing unreadable menus.
Production 050111 Adds
ability to convert 720p60 frame-packed 3D (common mode for 3D
PS3 games) to 1080p60 side-by-side 3D which is useful for
displays (like the Titan) which aren't optimized for 720p
frame-packed 3D. Bugfix for automatic side-by-side 3D detection
with Popcorn Hour 200. Bugfix for not always restoring ISF
backup. Couple other small bugfixes.
Production 041611- Bugfix
for editing the 2D OutSelect settings in the menu which could
alter the 3D OutSelect 3D type. Some rs232 command updates: new
command ZQI18 replaces ZQI03 for querying current output
configuration. ZQI18 returns out1 on/off status (1/0), out2
on/off status (1/0), output mode selected (C<0-7> for one of
eight output configurations or D<mode_name> for a directly
selected standard mode), output 3D type (0=off, f=auto, 1=frame
seq, 2=frame packed, 4=top-bottom, 8=side-by-side), cms <0-7>,
style <0-7>. ZQI01 was updated to add one additional comma
separated value at end for input 3D type ((0=off, 2=frame
packed, 4=top-bottom, 8=side-by-side). ZQO01 was updated to add
one additional comma separated value at end for input 3D type
((0=off, 1=frame seq, 2=frame packed, 4=top-bottom,
Production 041411- Adds
ability to allow 720p side-by-side 3D to be converted to 1080p
side-by-side by selecting 1080p60 as the mode under '3D
OutSelect' and leaving the 3D type as 'auto'. Useful for Titan
projector owners or any other display that doesn't work well
with 720p frame-packed.
Production 041211- Fixed
issue with audio loss using some PC graphics cards, fixes audio
issue with Mozaex movie server and perhaps some other HTPC's and
satellite boxes. Fix for
041111 issue with low-level banding. Fix for limits on output
masking on top edge at 47% for 1080 sources.
Production 041111 Adds
per-input memory on/off control of audio outputs. Using these
settings will override the global audio setup. Bugfix for
0401-0410 firmware with pip and some source resolutions. Bugfix
for 0401-0410 firmware for NLS and some source resolutions.
Bugfix for 041011 screen being green on off or unconnected
Production 041011- The
fix for color banding issue in some modes in the 040911 update
was not correct---it is now fixed.
Production 040911 Adds
a menu shortcut to jump directly into the adjustable test patterns,
press "menu6". Fix for audio loss occurrence with
channel/program changes on some cable/satellite boxes. Fix for
not always retriggering source on audio edid changes when
exiting the main audio menu. Fix for warm up test pattern screen
corruption. Fix for color banding issue in some modes and some
audio jitter for 0401-040211 updates.
Production 040211- Fix
for 1080i side-by-side 3D sources. Fix
for broken test patterns in 040111 revision. Fix for manually
setting side-by-side/ top-bottom 3D modes which was not always
working (press "menu 031" for manual side-by-side 3D sources,
"menu 032" for manual top-bottom sources, and "menu 030" to
disable the manual 3D modes. Note that setting a manual 3D mode
is only necessary if the source does not transmit that it's
displaying a 3D mode).
Production 040111 Adds
conversion of 720/1080 side-by-side 3D to frame-packed 3D (need
to have Input:Video Setup:RES:3D OutSelect set to "Auto"). Also
adds converting from side-by-side to frame-sequential 3D (used
by CRT's) and for this you must select an output mode and 3D
type in the 3D OutSelect menu. Note: currently side-by-side 3D
sources cannot be cropped or adjusted for aspect scaling but we
will be adding this ability in soon.
Production 021711 Fix
for bug in 012011-021611 firmware which left an uncleared
inactive video area when using vertical shift. Fix for some case
of genlocked video that could have an occasional screen tear.
Menu display modified to show current mode/CMS/Style
Production 021011 Fix
for some newer Panasonic TV's (seen on V20 and VT25) not
displaying 1080p video when Radiance source audio selected was
coax/TOS with the audio source off/unattached. Fix for some
display devices not getting video when they are powered off and
back on with the Radiance power left on.
Production 020911- Fix
for 3D not displaying on Philips 3D displays. Fix for sources
changing between SD/HD (most typically a cable box changing
channels) and sometimes losing picture requiring the Radiance to
be power cycled to correct. Fix for setting output mode pressing
"Menu 02X" on the remote and not completely setting the mode up
which would result in not being able to keep the changed mode on
a power cycle. Fix for some combinations of input and output
modes giving streaks in the video. Other small bugfixes.
Production 020711 For
non 60.0 Hz 720p 3D (which is most 720p 3D sources) the output
settings were incorrectly altered by the 012711 fix for 60.0
change and is now fixed in this update. Fix for setting second
video output "Off" and it displaying as "Copy of Output".
Several other small bugs fixed.
Production 012711- Fixes
issue with 24.0/60.0Hz 3D sources not resulting in the correct
3D output modes (most typically seen with PC sources). Fix for
factory reset when done on analog input leaving a blank picture.
Fix for bad video issue when changing from 24p 3D to analog
input. Other minor changes.
Production 012511 Bugfix
for vertical shift working incorrectly for output modes of
720p or less. Bugfix for using "Auto" output modes with 1080i-3D
source going out as 540p-3D when it should have stayed as
1080i-3D on the output mode.
Production 012311- Fixes
a configuration compatibility issue in 012211 if reverting back
to older firmware. Fixes a couple issues with manual control of
sbs and tb 3D modes for 1080i.
Production 012211 (If you loaded this
update and want to revert to older firmware then update to
012311 first)- Added
manual selection of side-by-side and top-bottom 3D formats which
is sometimes needed when sources don't send a 3D flag over HDMI.
Press "menu 031" for side-by-side, "menu 032" for top-bottom,
and "menu 030" for 2D. Added rs232 command to select
Output Mode, Output CMS, and Output Style. Command format is
"ZY530mcs". where m is the Output Mode select and can be the
character 'K' to keep the current mode or '0'-'7' to select
Output Mode 0-7. After m, c selects Output CMS and can be
be the character 'K' to keep the current CMS or '0'-'7' to
select CMS 0-7. Lastly, s selects the Output Style and can be
the character 'K' to keep the current mode or '0'-'7' to select
Style 0-7. There are several more bugfixes in this update.
Production 012011- Added
frame sequential ability for 3D output for use with 3D on CRT
displays. Menu improvements under the Input:Video Setup:RES menu
area for Output1 and 2 select menus. There are now Output2D and
3D Select menus and under each menu you can setup Output1 and 2.
In the Output3D Select menu you can select 3D output modes as
before but we've added the ability to select the 3D type. The 3D
type can be Auto,TopB (top-bottom),SByS (side by side) ,FrmP
(frame packed), FSeq (frame sequential) and Off. We're still
adding capabilities so not all of these are allowed yet.
Bugfixes for a test pattern issue, mode timing setup issues,
mode information display. Bugfix for setting input color space
and getting a shrunk version of input video. Bugfix for a copy
issue with input memories. Fix for an issue with hotplug and
NuVision displays that could result in a blank screen. Bugfix
for not picking up 720p60 3D on power-up. Some fixes for taking
720p60 frame-packed 3D and driving out 1080p60 left or right eye
only. Changes to Output menu to simplify things a bit with
regards to Out1, Out2 and 3D setup commands. These commands are
all under the heading Global Setup under the Output menu
section. Added rs232 command for setting 3D output for left,
right or both eyes (command format is "ZY47X" where X is L,R or
B). Added another trigger output option.
Beta 121010- Adds
menu shortcuts. Pressing "menu" followed by 1-4 jumps to several
convenient locations in the menu. "menu 1" goes to
Input:Video Setup:RES. Pressing "menu 2" gets to Input:Video
Setup:RES.size:ASPECT. Pressing "menu 3" gets to
Output:CMS:(active CMS). Press "menu 4" to get to
Output:Style:(curr style). We've also added some additional
codes to jump to specific commands in each of these areas.
Here's a table of the command shortcuts:
Menu10: Input... Black level
Menu11: Input... White level
Menu12: Input... Deint mode
Menu13: Input... Genlock
Menu14: Input... Game mode
Menu15: Input... Reinterlace
Menu16: Input... Enhance sharpness
Menu17: Input... Enhance noise reduction
Menu18: Input... Enhance adaptive contrast
Menu20: Input... Scale bias
Menu21: Input... Vert Shift
Menu22: Input... NLS
Menu23: Input... Mask
Menu30: Output... Gamma factor
Menu31: Output... Current grayscale
Beta 112510- Bugfix
for menu help in the global output setup command. Bugfix for
global output 2 setup changing output 1 instead. Input switching
improvements. Fixup of menu display in side-by-side 3D mode
(DirecTV) and top-bottom 3D modes. Adds 3D to 2D conversion and
the ability to select left or right eye---in the menu under
Output: OutputX: 3D.
Beta 110910- Fix
for incorrect mode display in Select Mode command. Added new 3D
capability setting in the menu under Output:OutputX:3D. The
default is 'Auto' but this can be set to 'Yes' for displays that
support 3D but don't report it via their EDID (the Titan3D is
one such display). This can also be set to 'No' is you wish to
manipulate the Radiance Automatic output mode into not enabling
3D for 3D source material.
Beta 110810- Fixes
up slow power-on issue. Expanded 3D edid for DirecTV
compatibility. Fixes up a display issue seen with Panasonic
VT20/VT25's where colors would sometimes be wrong and audio
would not work. This could also fix up other displays with
similar symptoms. Most likely they would only be 3D displays. We
have got a VT25 and it now works with 422/444 colors, 2 channel
audio and 3D (VT25 does not take Dolby Digital).
Known VT25 issue (XD only):
with the VT25 being sent 1080p24 3D, with audio, and using the
HDMI ARC input on the VT25 results in occasional flashes of
video snow--using another HDMI input on the VT25 works just
Beta 110110- Fix
for audio noise issue on HDMI input 6 for some XD/XE units. Fix
for Pip not working in 102810-102910. Fix for many 3D BluRay
players not recognizing Radiance as 3D capable. Fix for not
flipping into 3D mode sometimes. Bugfix for turning off unit if
HDMI:Type was changed in 102810-102910. Bugfix for 3D with audio
causing intermittent video dropout on XD only.
power on until initial video display is slower than 092510.
THIS UPDATE HAS ISSUES WITH COLOR
CALIBRATION please use 102910 or newer updates.
Beta 102810- Adds
support for processing 3D
video to use in combination with 3D sources and 3D capable
displays. Splits output configurations into Mode,CMS, and Style
settings allowing a more powerful way to mix, match and reuse your output
settings. Auto output modes have been improved such that if the
source changes from 1080p60 to 1080p24 then the output mode will
change to 1080p24 if the display supports it. There have also
been a few small bugfixes.
3D Details: For units
purchased before Oct. 1, 2010 a software key must be purchased
from Lumagen to enable 3D video processing. Email
information on purchasing. In this firmware 3D sources are only
allowed to use the Auto output mode. For 3D the auto output mode
sets the output mode to be the same resolution and rate as the
input mode--so a 1080p24 3D movie will set the output mode to
1080p24 3D.Also Side-by-Side and Top-Bottom 3D modes are not
currently allowed to be scaled (so no cropping, aspect
adjustments). 3D BluRay players and the PS3 are using
frame-packed 3D modes and these can be scaled with this
firmware---so yes, 2.35 movies in 3D with an anamorphic lens
will work. Known issue (XD only):
The XD has an issue with some 3D output formats when audio is
also output to the display that can cause video to be
intermittently blacked out. Can be worked around now if
you configure the XD to drive audio on the other output and turn
audio off on the 3D video output.
Output Config Details: The
8 output configurations have been split into 8 Modes, 8 CMS's,
and 8 Styles. Older setups are converted such that Output Config
0 becomes Mode 0, CMS 0, and Style 0. This split allows for
mixing and matching settings in a much more powerful way. You
can now select a Mode, CMS and a Style individually for each
input memory and input mode in the menu under Input:Video
Setup:RES:OutX Select (previously the output config was selected
in this menu location). Instead of having to set up the 8 output
modes for standard resolutions, you can now directly select an
output mode in the OutX Select menu. You may find it unnecessary
to even set up the 8 output modes unless you have some special
output timings required by your display. Note on reverting to older firmware:
If you mix and match Modes/CMS's/Styles (.ie Mode 0, CMS 3,
Style 6) or use the new directly selectable modes and you revert
to previous firmware versions you will get some different
results since the older firmware does not understand these
selections. We recommend backing up your old configuration to a
PC before updating to this newer firmware as a precaution.
+ 3D releases and newer, improved output configuration
functionality ABOVE-----(for 2D or 3D units)
only releases with older, less capable output configuration
Production 080510- Fixes
for audio/video dropouts which occurred in some systems with the
07XX10 updates. Fix for coax audio in when selected on an analog
video source with inactive video. Couple other minor user
Production 072210- Small
tweak to the previous update to fix an output sync/loss of video
issue on some units (only seen with 1080p24). If you don't have
an issue with 072010 than updating is not necessary.
Production 071810- Improved
Pop (picture-outside of picture) function for maximally filling
screen when Pop is performed and the aspects had necessitated
sidebars---for instance, if you're watching a 16:9 source on a
2.35 screen and you "pop" up another 16:9 source (if Pop set to
size of 50) the sidebars will be removed to use up the entire
2.35 raster. Prior to this update the two 16:9 sources would
have just filled the area originally occupied by the first 16:9
source, leaving sidebars onscreen.
Adds reinterlacing for 480p and 576p
sources. This can provide dramatic improvements to a picture
that has been poorly deinterlaced prior to coming into the
Radiance. Reinterlacing also allows for taking in 480p/576p
movies and going out at 24/48/72Hz. The new command is under
Input:Video Setup:RES:Control:Reinterlace. With this command you
can "allow" or "disallow" quick remote key control for a
particular resolution as well as turn it on/off. If "Reinterlace
<> Keys" are allowed the left/right arrow buttons on the remote
can then be used to control reinterlacing. The left arrow can
toggle reinterlacing on/off and the right arrow toggles the
field order. Depending on how the picture was deinterlaced,
the field order may or may not be important but it can be
quickly toggled to see if there is any difference. Discrete
commands are available for reinterlacing control as well and
they are "menu 0940"=off, "menu 0941"=on, "menu 0972" = toggle
field order. A new rs232 command was added to arm the right/left
arrow keys for reinterlace control, it is "ZY523X<CR>" where
X='0' disallows, X='1' allows, X='2' allows with onscreen
messages. The discrete reinterlace commands also work as rs232
commands ("M0940","M0941","M0972"). An rs232 command was added
for reinterlacing status, "ZQI17", which returns "!I17X,Y,Z"
where X = 1/0 (on/off) , Y = 1/0 (allow/disallow) for <> keys,
Z= 1/0 (active / not active) to indicate whether reinterlacing
is taking place.
Improved PAL deinterlacing and now allows
"film only" deinterlacing mode to use settings under "Enhance"
menu for 50Hz sources.
Added direct command to set output sync
polarity, "menu 01XY". X=0/1 (-/+ Horiz polarity), Y=0/1 (-/+
Vert polarity). Both outputs set together. Use menu to set them
different from one another.
Upped maximum output pixel clock settable
to 156 Mhz (useful for CRT displays).
Bugfixes: Bugfix for film mode sometimes
not getting set when changing memories. Bugfix of 1080i-50
component zoom settings causing incorrect cropping on left side.
Loss of input video under rare circumstances fixed. Loss of
output video (depending on configuration) on output 2 fixed. Fix
for inability to alter rate match settings on inactive config.
Input changes to non-hdcp sources were sped up. Copying ouput
aspect from one output config to another fixed. Copying
black/white in output config fixed.
Production 031810- Bugfix
for screen sometimes going black with no menu or video visible
(which could come back if switching to a different input or
turned off and back on). For rs232 users a command was added to
disable displaying the status screen when a <CR> (carriage
return) character is received, press menu 0927 to
Production 031610- Adds
some more audio formats to the user selectable list in either
the main audio menu or the per-input audio edid menu. Formats
added were PCM 2Ch 192Khz, PCM 5.1Ch 192Khz, PCM 7.1Ch
44.1,48,96,192 Khz, DD+ 5.1Ch,7.1Ch (Dolby Digital Plus).
Production 022110- Fix
for video issue in some XD/XE units caused by a marginal timing
issue in FPGA. Updating not necessary unless you're seeing
consistent/obviously noisy/corrupted video from one or more
Production 021810- Bugfix
for intermittent audio issue which often affected HD audio
formats (bug originated in 011410 update). Bugfix for video
posterization issue occurring in some situations (also
originated in 011410 revision). Bugfix for not being able to
change selections on Other:OnOff Setup:Input Select command.
Production 021310- Bugfix
for bug in 021210 revision that with Pip and certain source
combinations could cause a video source to be lost until
switching to another input and back. Bugfix for output mask
command when used on inactive output configurations.
Production 021210- Adds
Pop (picture-outside of-picture) to the already implemented Pip
command. The 'Pip Setup' command is now called 'Pip/Pop Setup'
and is located under the 'Other' menu. The new 'Pip/Pop Setup'
command now has a 'Type' option where you can select 'Pip', 'PopL'
or 'PopR'. 'PopL' stands for 'Pop Left' so the secondary video
window will be to the left of the main video screen. 'PopR' is
for the secondary video window to be placed on the right. For
Pop you can vertically orient the side-by-side screens to be at
the top, centered or bottom of the picture and adjust the y
position from there. Also some small
improvements to Pip in this update.
Production 012510- Bugfix
for game mode with interlaced inputs only showing top half of
screen (bug occurred at 011410 revision). Bugfix for the Pip
Setup menu command where in a particular situation the values
would jump as you entered the command.
Production 011410- Small
precision improvement in video processing. Can now save last Pip
source/mode per input. Also added a default PiP mode setting under Other:PiP Setup: PiPSel/Mode.
The default Pip mode is initially set to "None" for each pip
source ( which means you stay with the current pip mode as you
change pip sources as it acted previously). If you set the
default pip mode to 1-10 for a particular pip source then when
you select that pip source it will use the assigned default pip
mode. Bugfix for occasionally
powering on with a blank input which could be corrected by power
cycling again. Output sync polarities added under Output:OutputN:SyncPolarity.
Fixed label alignment in input menu.
Production 111609- Improved
analog component inputs for some sources that had a slight
flicker. Bugfix for setting output1 video off for all mems and
all resolutions which would turn off video on output 2 instead.
Added a "Game Mode" setting for minimizing
video latency. For interlaced sources 480i/576i/1080i are
treated as 240p/288p/540p when enabled. Enable it if needed in the menu under Input:Video
Setup:RES:Control:Game Mode. When game mode is enabled PiP,
Deinterlacing, and Enhance settings are not available.
Added a couple more Pip settings.
"Label" allows disabling the label the comes on for 5 seconds
when the Pip is selected/changed. "Timer" allows setting how
long the Pip stays on when selected (the default leaves it up
until manually turned off).
Added the Input Mask to work with the
Pip window. The ability to mask the Pip along with the new "Timer" setting
allows creation of a special Pip window for an output from an AVR or other
equipment that displays menus. So, for instance, a programmable remote could
turn on the Pip for an AVR when adjusting a volume control and
just the slice of the menu from the AVR with the volume display
could be overlayed onto the screen and after a certain amount of
time (10 sec - 4 minutes) this "volume control" Pip display
would turn off automatically. The input mask command can be
found in the menu under Input:Video
Added an "Input Selection menu option.
Enable this in the menu under Other:Menu Control:Menu Options
with the "Input Menu" setting. If enabled, you can press the
'Input' button the remote to display a list of inputs to select
from. The list is editable.
Added the Pip swap function--used with
the 'Swap' button on the remote.
Production 110209- Bugfix
for changing deinterlacer mode settings incorrectly for inactive
config(this bug was in 110109 only and was caused due to the
addition of the new "video mode" setting). Updated rs232
commands regarding deinterlacer mode settings (for the 'ZQI15'
and 'ZY515' rs232 commands the value of 2 is now used to
indicate "video mode" deinterlacing). The rs232 tech tip will be
updated accordingly. Added
a "Video" deinterlacing mode to the menu under Input:Video
Setup:RES:Control:Deint:Mode . This is a useful option if your
watching cable/satellite type sources and your seeing some
combing. Couple small bugfixes.
Added PiP for analog inputs with the
limitation that if the main window is an analog source then the
PiP can either be the same analog source or an HDMI source. If
the main window is an HDMI source then the PiP can be any
Added a new "Memory Usage" option in
the menu under Other:Memory Usage. Previously when you select a
memory (A-D) you are using it across all inputs, .ie if you're
on input 1A, change to input 2 and press 'MemB' and change to
input 1, you'll be using 1B. We've called this the 'common'
memory usage mode since the memory in use is common across all
inputs. Now you can set the memory usage to
be per-input, so if you're on input 1A and change to input 2
then press 'MemB' and change back to input 1, you'll go back to
1A---it remembers the memory you're on for each input. Either mode can be
used and it depends on what you use the memories for as to which
you might prefer. For example, if you're using memA for settings
adjusted to daytime ambient settings and memB for nighttime then
you'll probably want to stick with the default 'common' mode.
Added aspect and memory control for
the PiP window. Now pressing the aspect or memA-D buttons after
PiP select or mode have been pressed sets the aspect or memory
for the PiP window--note that if you're not using the new
per-input memory usage setting then changing the PiP memory also
changes the main windows memory. Auto-aspect also works for the
PiP now. Note that for the PiP window the 'Letterbox' aspect,
which is defined to be an aspect greater than 4:3 within a 4:3
aspect, is just treated as 4:3 (so you'll see bars on top and
bottom) and similarly the '2.35' aspect, which is defined to be
2.35 inside a 16:9 aspect, is just treated as 16:9 (so again
top/bottom bars are visible).
Added a label to the PiP window that
displays it's input name for a few seconds when the PiP is
accessed with PiP remote buttons like PiP select, mode, etc..
Added a power on input selection
option to the menu under Other:OnOff Setup:Input Select. With
this you can control which input the unit powers up on after
either power is removed or after standby.
Added a small reminder in the menu when settings have been
changed to help remember if you should 'Save' before powering down.
Several bugfixes and some minor additional menu enhancements.
Production 100109- Adds
a new command to tweak deinterlacing quality with an
"Inter-Frame motion detection" setting. This command can be
found under the menu at Input:Video Setup:RES:Control:Deint:IFMD.
The range is 0-15, 0 should minimize combing while 15 maximizes
detail according to the chip specification. The default value is
6. Adds the ability to set HDMI input type. This option is found
in the menu under Input:HDMI Setup:Type. This was always "Auto"
but can now be set manually to RGB, YCbCr422, YCbCr444 as some
DVI outputs use these other formats but can't communicate which
format they're putting out like an HDMI device can.
Default for audio mute was changed to "Long" but this only comes
into play if you load factory default values.
Some bugfixes for new 12/21 point
grayscale/gamma calibration commands. The biggest issue was a
bug in the copying of the calibrated data between output configs
which could cause either overflow on bright scenes and/or
inability to go back and edit the grayscale for an output
config that had been copied from another. So if you did an
output copy command with revisions 091409 or 092109 you should
recopy the output configs (.ie if you had copied config0 CMS
data to all other output configs then do that again after
loading this update). Also a couple of other small bugfixes
unrelated to CMS.
DON'T USE- Production 092109- Turning
on/off PiP no longer results in momentary onscreen noise. Bugfix
for occasional horizontal line of noise with combing when the
"film only" mode is used with 480i in and the output mode is 60
Hz. Bugfix for pressing the wrong key in one menu command which
would corrupt an entry in the CMS gamut. Bugfix for going from
11 point to 12 or 21 point grayscale for an issue that occurs if
the original points are only 0.5 IRE apart. Bugfix for restoring
an ISF configuration that was saved more than a few months ago.
DON'T USE-Production 091409-
Adds 12 and 21 point grayscale/gamma
calibration commands (in the menu, under
Output:Configs:ConfigX:Color Mgmt:Gray/Gamma). If you change
from the 11point to 12 (or 21) your current grayscale
points are not changed and the new points are interpolated
between your currently calibrated points. Bugfix for PiP
sometimes turning on at powerup. A couple of other small
Production 090609- Bugfix for factory reset setting on input
10 (bug was only in revision 090509).
NOT RECOMMENDED, ISSUE WITH 24P
Made some changes to the Rate Matching
feature introduced in revision 072609. Some displays are not
liking 60.00 Hz refresh (show no picture) and only want
59.94Hz so the default is now "off". Also added direct commands
to globally turn rate matching on/off. Pressing "menu 0950" will
turn it off, while "menu 0951" will turn it on for all output
configs. You can individually set the output configs as
before in the menu under Output:Configs:ConfigX:Timing:Rate
NOT RECOMMENDED, ISSUE WITH 24P
OUTPUT---Production 090309- Bugfix
for audio turning off when PiP was turned on.
NOT RECOMMENDED, ISSUE WITH 24P
Adds Picture-in-Picture commands. The OFF,
SEL, and MODE buttons on the remote for PiP now work (SWAP will
be implemented in an upcoming release). Also, only HDMI inputs
are currently allowed in the PiP window (analog inputs in the
PiP window will be in an upcoming release). Here's a short
FAQ on the new PiP feature:
Remote button control for PiP:
SEL: When pressed will turn on the PiP window if not already on.
After pressing SEL, pressing a number selects that input as the
PiP input. Once SEL is pressed you can continue to change the PiP input by pressing
number keys. Once a non-numeric button on the remote is pressed,
pressing a number will switch the main-window input. MODE: When pressed will turn
on the PiP window if not already on. After pressing MODE,
pressing 0-9 selects one of the 10 PiP modes. The mode controls the
location of the PiP window, its size and its density (aka transparency).
Once MODE is pressed you can continue to change the PiP mode by pressing
number keys. Once a non-numeric button on the remote is pressed,
pressing a number will switch the main-window input. To
change PiP mode settings go to "Other:Pip Setup" in the menu. OFF: Press to turn off the
PiP window. SWAP: Not yet implemented.
Will swap the main window and PiP windows. When swapping the
screen may blank for several seconds.
Production 080109- Bugfix
for change made in 072209 which disabled coax/tos audio in some
cases. Adds increased range to the A2D gain
reduction command used for component inputs. Bugfix for when
sources are turned off or unplugged that would result in green
dashes instead of a black screen.
Production 072609- Adds
"rate matching" for handling sources that generate
24.0/48.0/60.0Hz instead of 23.97/47.95/59.94 Hz. Rate matching
defaults to on and is located under the menu at
Output:Configs:ConfigX:Timing:Rate Match. With this new ability
the output mode is adjusted to match up with the input mode so
that frames are not dropped. This is most noticeable now when a
24.0Hz movie is played with the output set to 23.97Hz. When
enabled the output rate is adjusted to the correct multiple so
if you're at 59.94Hz on the output , a 24.0Hz source would
change your output rate to 60.0Hz. Fixed an issue with spdif
audio in at non 48khz rates to HDMI outputs. Fixed an issue
with automatic display modes (added in 071309) where it would
undesirably revert to 480p.
Couple of audio issue fixes. Fixed an
issue of the Radiance spdif out going to a McIntosh MX132 prepro.
In the Radiance audio menu a setting of "Basic" for spdif out
will now work with the McIntosh (the "Normal" mode will not , so
use "Basic"). Fixed an issue with the Meridian HD621 audio
processor where it did not see Dolby/DTS from the Radiance
(affected both spdif/TOS and hdmi audio inputs on the Radiance).
Production 071309- Added
new automatic display mode for output. This mode will configure
your output based on information read from the display. The 2
automatic modes are called "auto_p1" and "auto_p2". Since
there are 2 output ports you can choose which one is given
priority for setting the mode, so with "auto_p1", output1 is
checked first for a valid mode, then output 2, and if neither
has a valid mode then 480p is used.
Production 070209- Added
ability to manually override the automatic input aspect. Just
press an input aspect as you normally would and the current
automatic aspect is overridden. You can go back to the current
automatic aspect on the current input by reselecting the current
input or just by pressing the "input" button by itself. There's
also another field in the auto aspect menu which allows a manual
input aspect override to be 'sticky' or not. If 'sticky' is off
and the source sends new input aspect information then the input
aspect will change to the new aspect automatically. If 'sticky'
is on then the manually selected input aspect will be used until
you reselect the current input or press the 'input' button by
Added automatic input aspect selection for
HDMI inputs which can be enabled on a per-input memory basis.
Look for it in the menu under "Input X:HDMI Setup: Auto Aspect".
Added inverse options on output triggers. Added rs232 commands
for input deinterlacing mode ("ZY515") and input vertical shift
selections ("ZY516"). See newly updated
rs232 tech tip
11 for usage details. Couple small bugfixes.
More bugfixes for the 052509 revision.
Fixed vertical input masking and vertical shift for "film only"
mode. Fix for chroma resolution loss. Fix for corrupted
horizontal lines in video when using NLS in some cases.
Production 052609- Fixes
some 601/709 colorspace issues arising from changes in the
052509 revision. Also, a bugfix for case when zoomstep set to 5%
and 2.35 input aspect with 2.35 output aspect resulted in a
slightly scaled image when it should not have been. Couple other
Replaced "Film Bias" deinterlacing mode
(which was ineffective) with a new "Film Only" mode. This new
deinterlacing mode fixes deinterlacing issues seen in film
sequences from Gladiator to Lord of the RIngs to
Battlestar Galactica (TV shows are often shot as film). In some
film sequences the "Auto" mode incorrectly drops to video mode
which can cause a flickering effect with thin horizontal lines
and can make 24/48/72 Hz output stutter. The new "film only"
mode always stays in film mode and is only engaged with
interlaced sources. Also, when using the new film mode the
settings under the enhance menu are disabled. For
24p/48/24sf/72hz output modes the new film mode is probably the
best option since it's implied with these output modes that
you're watching a film source. Improvement can be seen for 50
and 60Hz output modes with film sources but if you're using a
source that outputs both video and film you may want to use a
different memory to quickly enable it. A new 72Hz output
mode was added. It is 817x1920-71.93Hz and is listed as 817p72
in the mode list. This new mode is ideal for 2.35 movies shown
on a 2.35 display with a 72Hz capable projector. Bugfx for an
HDMI audio output issue. Bugfix for adjusting inactive
graybar level and incorrectly affecting the active graybar. Fix
for an issue of "softness" with svideo and composite sources.
Production 050509- Fixes
a couple of rs232 command interface issues (the rs232 output
color/hue command for red and green only worked with output
config 0 and if a test pattern was up and the rs232 power on
command was issued then a small cyan box would appear onscreen.
Fixes an issue which caused occasional
loss of video , sometimes after working for hours, in revisions
032909-040309. Adds an additional setting for output audio SPDIF
control, the old setting of "On" is now "On Norm". The newly
added setting is "On Basic" and was found to fix Coax/TOS to an
older Yamaha YSP-1100. Adds a separate timeout option for test
patterns in the menu under Other:Menu Control:Timeouts
Production 040309- Audio improvement for format changes (saw
a case with an MC12 going from 96Khz to 48Khz) that would
sometimes cause a short burst of static even with the Radiance
long mute setting. Note that the PS3 connected direct to the
MC12 also gave a burst of static on the format change. A similar
issue was fixed with format changes and some sources resulting
in silence. Another sw fix was made to prevent video stutter
with an inactive component connected to a Radiance output (saw
case with one particular component).
(replaces 031509 which had an issue with
genlock) Previous update had some marginal timing
on video outputs. Also a bugfix for video tear towards top of
picture that occurred under some conditions (the case we
were looking at was with 576i and letterbox aspect). Also fixed
a bug where sometimes the input mode was not correctly detected.
Bugfix for turning genlock off/on between memories on an input.
Bugfix for video noise issue (intermittent
flash of lines) that occurs with some sources and was also
dependent on the Radiance configuration. Couple other small
bugfixes. Added another setting for output triggers in
order for correct results when using rs232 control, the new
setting for the output triggers i s "Under RS232 control". Added
3 new color test patterns (desaturated red,green and blue). The
patterns are intended for CMS calibration. The patterns use 75%
(191/255 if using 8bpp values) for the patterns primary color
and 37% (96/255 using 8bp) for the other 2 primaries. So for the
desaturated red pattern, r=75%, g=37%, b=37%. Added a new rs232
test pattern command ("ZY7T") to access all test patterns see
rs232 tech tip
11 (old rs232 commands accessed most but not all).
Added rs232 command to control output color format ("ZY46"), see
rs232 tech tip.
Quicker restarting of audio on picture
format changes and audio interruption seen on set-top boxes with
channel changes or skipping through recorded material. A new
per-input menu setting was added for this called Mute Control
and it's under Input:Audio Setup. Can be set to "Short" or
"Long" and will default to Short. Bugfix for an issue with
passing back video EDID from a display to the source (bug
present in 0126-0207).
Bugfix for 012609-020209 firmware relating
to video noise issues and 24p output not working on some
systems. Bugfix for purple/green screen sometimes occurring.
Audio fix for switching between 2 multi channel PCM sources and
losing some channels. Bugfix for DirectTV HDMI audio in not
working on latest releases. Bugfix for blanked screen being left
Bugfix for hw precision improvements in
012609-020109 revisions that could cause horizontal streaking in
some scenes. Bugfix for switching to an input and sometimes
getting incorrect color (in one case switching to component and
getting pinkish color with the input type getting set to Scart
Some small precision improvements in
programmable video datapath. Fix for a case of passthru video
EDID which would result in no video. Bugfix for setting
black/white on inactive output config which didn't always work
correctly. Bugfix for audio issue with Halcro SSP220.
(This replaces the 012509 release posted yesterday)
Couple of bugfixes for switching between
the 2 Radiance outputs. Bugfix for incorrectly setting the audio
src of an HDMI input when performing a copy. Modified the input
label command to more easily access lower case letters
Added per input memory custom audio EDID option for HDMI inputs
in the menu at Input:Audio Setup:Audio EDID. This allows you to
override the global audio EDID settings (configured under the
main audio menu) on any input memory desired. Bugfix for
mosquito noise setting sometimes not getting applied. Other
Added several new capabilities to output
dithering (Output:ConfigX:HDMI Format:Dither) to help some LCD
and plasma displays. Numerous label changes in menu: Color/Hue -> ColorDecoder, Contrast ->White, Color Temp -> Gray/Gamma, and
other smaller changes. Added some more test pattern access for
rs232 so "tqXX" - "tvXX" gives large window patterns
red,grn,blue,yell,cyan,mag. Added menu placement option to keep
center of screen clear under Other:Menu Control:Menu Options
(can also be set via rs232 with new ZY command---see updated
rs232 tech tip
11 ). Added rs232 ZD command to set rs232
delimiter setting. Added another delimiter option to use command
count and checksums with rs232 commands. Added options to factory reset command in
menu which now allows for only resetting the current input
memory, current output config, or everything. Added support for
several more analog RGBHV modes (800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024
all at 60Hz) and improved mode detection for RGBHV.
Bugfix for blanked output with genlock on and source turned off.
Adds an optional top-level menu item labeled "Quick Keys" which
can be turned on in the menu under Other:Menu Control:Menu
Options. It gives users with programmable remotes that have
limited numbers of buttons an easy way to access some command
buttons in the menu (like input aspects, memories). Improved
rs232 command processing and adds some rs232 options for
delimiters and acknowledgements in the menu under Other:RS-232
Setup. See updated
rs232 tech tip
11 for complete details.
Fix for multi-channel audio issue where
only 2 of 5 channels on HDMI would be seen by receiver (instance
seen here was with a Denon 3808).Adds more rs232 setup and query
commands for control systems, see updated
rs232 tech tip
11 for complete details.
A few rs232 additions. Adds the "ZBc" command to set the
character for an onscreen block in conjunction with onscreen
rs232 messages. Adds an rs232 nop character (_). Adds a <CR><LF>
as terminators for rs232 query responses. Adds a power-on query
command (ZQS02). See the new
rs232 tech tip
11 for complete
details. Fourth press of "Ok" leavers screen clear instead
of going back to start of info screens. Couple small HDMI audio
bugfixes. Refined the switching of output configs when changing
Adds rs232 powerup/down output messages for controlling another
device. The message settings are in the menu under Other:OnOff
Setup. Adds rs232 status query commands--this is so control
software running on another device can interrogate the Radiance
via rs232 as to it's status. If you're in need of documentation
of these commands please email us at
support@lumagen. A bugfix for downscaling 1080
sources to 480p output resolution (bug was only in 102608
revision). Bugfix for 2.35 input aspect selection of output
aspect (only in 102608). Bugfix for sometimes not setting input
color format correctly.
Adds a second 1080p-48 output mode (1080p48_B) for JVC HD10K.
Adds the ability to handle video sources with non-standard
horizontal front porches on HDMI inputs (an issue with Topfield
PVR). Adds the ability to edit inactive input resolution
submemory settings as well as inactive input aspect settings. Corrected internal setting for deinterlacer. Fixes an
issue with the far right edge for 480/576 video sources when
scaled up. Fixes a bug where editing color temp values would
clear the output mask and output shrink values. Bugfix for not
always displaying the correct deinterlacer firmware version
date. Bugfix for swapped Mosquito & Block noise settings,
no visual change to video but you'll notice the labels were
swapped. Other bugfixes.
Bugfix for some displays losing picture with genlock on. Bugfix
for cropping issue on right side. Bugfix for field flip
initialization. Bugfix for HDMI audio not always working right
in rev 97208. Adds 5% steps for test patterns accessed via
rs232 (use same format tXMM but allows MM to be 11-20 which
corresponds to 5%-95% stepping by 10%). Allows 24p in to 24p,24sf
or 48p out
to have genlock disabled (you can not disable it for interlaced
input with 24p,24sf, or 48p output since it can't work without
it). Adds "video off" status to lower part
of menu display. Adds tabbing thru the Info screens with the
'Ok' as well as 'Alt' button on the remote. Adds current output config to 1st page of Info screen and audio source to 2nd page.
Adds disabling the remote controls left & right arrow aspect
ratio selection (under Other:Remote Ctl). Other small bugfixes. Beta 101808-102208 were
had some powerup and initialization issues under some
Adds genlocking of output video to the source. Genlocking
reduces video delay and insures that frames are not occasionally
dropped (or doubled) to stay in sync. With genlock enabled we
can also convert 1080i/480i film sources to 24Hz, 48Hz or 24sF
output. Genlocking is by default set to
Disabledon all inputs. Genlock can be set to
Auto under Input:Video Setup:RES:Control:Genlock .
Under some situations genlock will be turned on whether you've
got it set to Auto or Disabled---such as if the input is 60Hz,
interlaced and your output mode is 24Hz,24Sf, or 48Hz.
When genlocking is on you may notice that it takes a little
longer to get a picture when the source changes resolutions. So
for sources that change their resolutions often ( like some set top boxes) you may choose to leave it
disabled. You can check the status of genlock on the 2nd page of the
info screen (press 'Ok' then 'Alt'). Fixed an issue with analog
audio to HDMI audio output not always working. Since there were more than the usual changes to
accommodate these new capabilities we've labeled this a Beta
release. We think this is a very clean update, but as always, if
you do run into a problematic bug you can go back
to an older update until we fix it.
097208- Small update from
082908 which corrects new output Black/Contrast commands so they
affect the adjustable test patterns. Adds two new rs232 commands
"tR" and "tA" which sets the mode for subsequent rs232 test
pattern commands to either Reference or Adjustable patterns,
Do not do a "force update" with this particular revision.
Update for deinterlacer firmware (you'll see a 3rd progress bar
added to the update utility user interface). The deinterlacer
firmware update is the first half of getting 480i/1080i -> 24p
output. Bugfix for faint banding in dark scenes with certain
combinations of input/output resolutions. Bugfix for 1080 in to
480p out with NLS which in some cases resulted in corrupted
video. Note that due to the deinterlacer firmware update this
update is a little longer than most (~9 minutes). Bugfix for
audio issue with TOS inputs when used with analog video inputs.
Adds Black & Contrast settings under
Output:Configs:ConfigX:Color Mgmt menu (these settings are
combined with input settings). Adds rs232 commands for
automation of color management calibration (a user manual update is
in progress with these details but if you need them sooner just
email support). Some other minor bugfixes. WARNING:
Do not do a "force update" with
this particular revision.
4:3 and LBOX remote buttons broken in
this update...Production 072508-
Bugfix for problem present in rev 0711-0722 software that could
cause video to go blank with input format changes in some
situations. Minor improvements with SPDIF/TOS in to SPDIF out
TOS->SPDIF broken in this update....Production 072108-
Bugfix for sometimes getting no/distorted audio on Radiance
spdif audio output after the 062008 software. Another bugfix for
sometimes not getting audio out on HDMI.
Bugfix for video stuttering under some circumstances. Adds
output shrink command in the menu under
Output:Configs:ConfigX:Mask/Shrink . Output shrink will shrink
the video output window down on any edge which is useful if you
have a display that always crops some or all of the edges of the
video by some amount.
071108- Adds virtual
inputs for HDMI inputs. This allows assigning input memories to
different physical inputs--so you could assign input memory 1A
to physical input 3 for instance. Input assignments can be made
in the menu under Input:HDMI Setup:Physical In. Adds a command
to disable/enable up/down arrows on remote used for zooming.
Find this command in the
menu under "Other:Zoom Setup". Some minor bugfixes.
061508- Bugfix for
analog/TOS audio inputs not always working (bug was in 0608-0612
revisions). Also you will need to be at this revision or newer
to use the new Configuration Utility program for the Radiance
that allows backing up/restoring your configuration from a PC.
page for the Configuration Utility.
Bugfix for lower IRE gamma calculations which were sometimes bad
enough to cause visible problems. Enhanced the function of the
output aspect per input aspect functionality with NLS. Now, when
selecting NLS with 4:3 input aspect the output aspect assigned
to the 16:9 input aspect entry will be used and when selecting
Lbox,16:9, and 1.85 input aspects with NLS the output aspect
assigned to the 2.35 input aspect entry is used. Another small
enhancement for input aspects Lbox,16:9, and 1.85 when
modified with NLS will now assert an output trigger if the
output trigger had been programmed to trigger for 2.35 input
061008- Fix for
Radiance occasionally powering on with corrupted color palette
causing weird looking video until power-cycled again or changing
the gamma up and back. Fix for the rs232 ZT command using to
short of a timeout.
060808- Fix for
occasional burst of audio static when switching between some
sources on the Radiance and driving a Lexicon MC-12HD. Fix for
occasional dropping of coax audio using MC-12HD. These 2 fixes
can apply to similar problems driving other audio equipment but
we were testing with the MC-12HD. Bugfix for Scart input
corrupting svideo/composite inputs when switching between these
inputs. Added wrap around for going
up/down the menus. Added "Input Reselect" command in the menu
under Other:Menu Control. The default behavior (set to On) is to
reinitialize settings and display the input name when
reselecting an input.
Production Candidate 060108-
Bugfix for problems with snow/menu noise on some systems. Fixed
a couple of small issues with the gamut:bycolor test patterns.
Bugfix for intermittent vertical line on left side of screen
that was in a few recent revs of software and could occur in
situations when horizontal scaling was not needed. Fixed the
Vertical Shift command to use "Exit" to cancel and "OK" to
accept. Most text color in menus is now either white or yellow,
eliminating black in all but a few places. Other small bugfixes.
Production Candidate 052508-
Adds YC delay command under "Input:Video Setup:RES:Picture".
Adds vertical refresh rate selection to timing menu but limited
to 50 or 59.94 Hz currently. Bugfix for vertical resolution
issue where it would get stuck at 480/576 instead of the
correct resolution. Other bugfixes.
Release 051808- Improvement in
vertical resolution for 1080i and 1080sf24 output modes. Fix for
zoom with scale bias set to off that would give a smeared effect
on the right portion of the video output. Bugfix for NLS
combined with some other conditions that created jumbled output
video. Fix for 480i/576i dvi sources that would get reduced
horizontal resolution (could be easily seen with multiburst test
pattern) and may help 480i/576i on some hdmi sources as well. Other small bugfixes.
Release 050408- New method for gamut
white point implemented that eliminates issue of white point
affecting the colors (can slightly alter previous gamut
calibrations). Another gamut correction issue that involved a
calibrated gamut setup and low IRE colors not being weighted
toward the color gamut (reported as oversaturated colors at low
IRE) was also corrected. NLS (non-linear stretch) is now
implemented for other input aspect ratios, so letterbox, 16:9,
and 1.85 can be stretched for output aspects of 2.35 (or
anything greater than the input aspect up to 2.45). Some
usability changes made to input mask command. Zoom step command
was added to the menu under "Other:Zoom step".
BetaRelease 050108 (replaces 043008)-
Bugfix for the new vertical shift and input mask commands. Both
commands were supposed to be settable per input aspect but ended
up that setting it for one aspect also set it for the others.
This update corrects this---however you will have to assign the
masks/vertical shifts again. (rev043008 was only up for a couple
Adds input masking and vertical shift commands in the menu under
"Input:VideoSetup:RES:Size:ASPECT:". Vertical shift can be
used to position the input video up or down in the output frame.
Input masking can be used to cover any of the 4 sides of the
input video without changing its position or sizing relative to
the output frame. Adds an option to the trigger setup to be set
off on powerup. Adds rs232 commands for controlling triggers.
The command format is "ZY3<1,2><H,L>" (also a trailing CR,LF or
Null character is needed to complete the command). The
characters <1,2> selects the trigger and <H,L> sets it on or
off. So sending the string "ZY31L<CR>" will set trigger 1 low
(off). Bugfix for triggers not being changed when changing
inputs/memories. Bugfix for scale bias not turning off scaling
in some cases. Zoom setting was removed from Input menu (just
using up/down arrows to adjust).
Release 042308- Adds the rest of the
commands under the Save menu (Undo and Restore). Fixes a couple
of EDID issues with 24,25 and 30p sources. Added a bit more to
the status pages (displayed when you press 'Ok').
Adds output masking (under Output:Configs:ConfigX:Mask/Shrink ).
Adds the "Scale bias" command under Input:VideoSetup:RES:Size:ASPECT:Scale
Bias " which can disable Radiance scaling in either
horizontal/vertical directions if the input resolution is close
to the output resolution. Added a second status page (press "Ok"
for status) that displays the status of horizontal/vertical
scaling. Adds the ability to save the service mode setting to
keep service mode on when powered off/on.
Release 041808- Adds RGBHV, RGBS, and
RGsB analog formats under the Input:Analog Setup:Type command.
Note only input 10 supports RGBHV (using inputs 18 & 17 for
hsync and vsync). Bugfix for the NLS (non-linear stretch)
command not working on a per input memory basis.
Adds output aspect setting per input aspect (under
Output:Configs:ConfigX:Aspect ). You can select to have a single
output aspect for an output config or you can have a different
output aspect used per each input aspect. This allows a simpler
setup for users with moveable anamorphic lenses since they can
have the 2.35 input aspect also select a 2.35 output aspect.
Adds analog input A2D gain setting for the analog component
inputs under Input:Analog Setup:A2D Gain. Setting to
"Reduced" should correct the Nintendo Wii white level issue.
Change in default mode setting for 1080sf24 (hsync setting
changed from 44 to 88 gives better result on Qualia).
Bugfix on EDID that improves getting 1080p24 from sources (.ie
PS3 on auto for 24p now works with Radiance EDID set to
default). Bugfix for menu sometimes bouncing under certain
situations. Bugfix for warmup test pattern. Bugfix for
audio source selection between different memories on same input.
Several other small menu bugfixes.
Release 040808- Bugfix for input
video issue in the 040508 revision.
Use---occasionally when changing aspects input video is lost and
Radiance must be turned off/on to restore....
Adds non-linear stretch functionality and menu command for
customization of NLS. The NLS remote button turns on NLS for the
current input aspect and only if the current input aspect is 4:3
will NLS be performed. We will be enabling it for other input
aspects later. To disable NLS for a 4:3 input aspect you need
only to re-select the 4:3 input aspect. The NLS parameters for
customization are under Input:Video
Setup:RES:Size:ASPECT:NLStretch. Bugfix for BTB stripes in
contrast pattern. Bugfix for menu color when exiting color
temp command. Changed default video edid to enable 24p,25p.
Moved positions of some color temp and color gamut that were not
already at the top so as to be readable when color probe is in
Release 031708- Adds special command
to disable the "24p output with non-24p source" message---press
"menu 0917" to disable/enable it. Adds OSD disable/enable
command to menu under Other:Menu control:OSD enable--the OSD
refers to the small status message that pops up when pressing an
input, zoom or aspect button. Changed default mode timing for
1080p24. Bugfix for Output timing command not reverting back to
previous timing numbers when it should have. Fix for setting
output color format on an inactive output config. Fix for a case
of the OSD coming up with some red splotches on background.
Continued bugfix of a color overflow issue in 030208-031008
revisions. Bugfix for output copy not copying output:color/hue
settings as part of CMS. Bugfix for reference test patterns
showing CMS settings (only adjustable patterns should show
this). Bugfix for test patterns not filling screen with
mismatched input and output aspect ratios. Fixes for setting
output dither and output timings for inactive output configs.
Release 031008- Bugfix for the rev 030208
bright white overflow issue. Adds the output config copy command
to copy different parameters between output configs (under
Output:Copy). Adds the input labeling command (under
Input:Label). Bugfix for switching between reference/adjustable
patterns when either the reference or adjustable pattern has
been left up (which is an easy way to A/B CMS adjustments with internal
patterns). Adds letter 'K' to rs232 interface to select 2.35
input aspect with no-zoom. Extra confirmation added to color
temp command when exiting.
Adds linearized gamma before gamut correction and adds a gamma
factor for adjusting gamma up or down (under
Output:Configs:ConfigX:Color Mgmt: Gamma ) . After updating you
will initially not have linearized gamma or the ability to
adjust gamma-- you'll have to go into the "Color Gamut" command
and "Set Defaults" ( or you could do a total factory
reset). You'll need to do "Set Defaults" for each output config
you're using if you want to have linearized gamma into the gamut
adjustment or adjust gamma for that output config. An example on
using the new gamma factor setting: if you've measured your
displays' gamma to be 2.2 and you prefer 2.4 then set the gamma
factor to 1.1 (2.4/2.2 = 1.09)
Adds the input copy command for copying input settings between
Some improvements were made to the commands under the Color Gamut
menu to make calibration a bit quicker. The biggest
improvement is in the "By Color" adjustment where you can now
directly enter a number as well as adjust with up/down arrows.
Some precision improvements were made to the video datapath. The
slow menu timeout was fixed (will keep menu commands up for 30
minutes). The video input level was moved up under the HDMI
Setup (or Analog Setup) menu since its a per input setting. A 6
second timeout was added to the "Non 24p...." warning message.
Release 022008- Adds programmable
output timing for display modes (in menu at
Output:Configs:ConfigX:Timing). Adds some more output modes to
"Select Mode" command (1080p48 among others). Bugfix for RGB
input types with PC levels causing color errors for dark colors.
Bugfix for vertical chroma edges. Bugfix for yellow, cyan
patterns in CMS. RS232 control of test patterns was fixed to
work as before. Some other small changes.
Adds the output select mode command (Output:Configs:ConfigX:Select
Mode ) for selecting
output modes from a list. The list currently has 15 modes and
we'll be adding many more. 1080sf24 is in the list and shows a
display but is not running correctly yet (has tearing/judder). Bugfixes for 020108 sw (1080i deinterlacing and gamut/color
temperature test pattern issues). .
Note: this sw has
several bugs in it (one of them being 1080i-60 deinterlacing
stutter--occurred as result of a change for 24p)...new update
with fixes will be posted shortly...
Release 020108- Adds 1080p24 output
mode (currently only works well for 1080p24 sources). Press
"menu 020" to load 1080p24 output mode. Adds white point to
color gamut configuration. Adds window patterns (small & large)
to gamut and color temperature commands. Adds color window
patterns (small & large) to test pattern command. Adds a test
pattern with squares that are square for the current output
aspect ratio called "Aspect Squares". The test pattern command
now has some groupings of patterns so you still use the
right/left arrows to cycle through the groups and press '4' to
cycle through patterns in the group. Test patterns load onto the
screen much more quickly.
Bugfix for the "By color" gamut command that would show wrong
colors in some situations. Added menu timeout control to the
menu under Other:Menu control. Several test patterns were left
out of the 011408 update and they're back in.
Release 011408- Couple of color gamut
menu bugfixes. Corrected 100% smpte pattern and solid color
fields in the "By color" gamut menu. Minor user interface
improvement in the "By matrix" gamut command.
Release 011208- Replaces gamut matrix
with 3D color look-up-table algorithm allowing calibration of
primaries and secondaries as well as maintaining grayscale.
Can set up secondaries to be automatically calculated. The color
points are set at 100% saturation. Adds 100% color bar
test pattern which goes well with setting up colors at the 100%
points. Adds film mode setting under Input: Video
Setup:XXX:Control:Deint which is useful for some PAL film
sources. Fixes and improves the output dither. Fixes a
video/PC level issue in the 1217-1219 sw. Fixes a bug with video
edid settings not being used if powered up on memories B-D.
Fixes up incorrect timing for 540p output (set by pressing "menu
022")--in order to switch to the new timing if you're already
set up for 540p you would need to switch to another mode like
480p ("menu 021") and then back. Other bugfixes.
using---input video level for YCbCr broken and CMS changes still
Some bugfixes for the 121707 release: picture made worse in some
cases, built in test pattern
colors were undersaturated, gamut values had too small of an
effect (they now have 4x the effect but upon doing the update
they will get divided down by 4 so you won't have to divide them
manually), limit checks on the "by color" gamut entry method were
not correct. Also for the "by matrix" gamut entry method the

Release 121707- Adds 2D/3D (aka
temporal) noise reduction. Adds adaptive contrast enhancement. Adds directional
sharpness and texture settings. The noise/contrast/sharpness settings are
all found under the Input:Video Setup:XXX:Enhance menu. Modifies the primary
gamut controls so that they now affect the secondaries and adds a direct
matrix entry option in the menu. Fixed some small color conversion
errors in the video datapath. Adds hotplug mode setting (under
Input:HDMI Setup) for situations where the source does not tolerate hotplug
retriggering for EDID updates. Numerous bugfixes.
Another bugfix (fix mentioned in 111207 did not work for some
cases) for switching output types and ending up with the
incorrect one (would result in bizarrely colored video). Bugfix
for adjustable test patterns sometimes not using the output
settings. Other bugfixes.
Release 111207- Fixes a bug that
would occur in some cases when using YCbCr422 or 444 output type and
switching between sources would give incorrect output type (resulting in
bizarrely colored video). Also switching between HDMI input sources in some
cases is faster. Couple other small bugfixes.
Release 110707- Bugfix for
faint red line on right edge with 1080p out and 1080p in. Bugfix for many
non-hdcp sources like AppleTV. Several audio bugfixes mainly for non-hdmi
audio sources. Several other small bug fixes. --late
update----this version has a bug such that if you're watching an
HDCP src and change the output resolution you won't see the video until you
turn the radiance or display off and on (or unplug the display cable and
plug back in)--we'll have this fixed asap.
Adds output type setting (RGB, YCbCr422, YCbCr444) in the output
menu under Output:Configs:XXX: . Output type was previously
always RGB so that's what you'll initially still be using unless
you change it. Adds output dither setting next to the new output
type setting. The output dither can make a difference for the
YCbCr 422 output type if the display is using less than 12 bits,
so you would set it to 8 or 10 bpp to match what the display is
using. Also adds output color format setting which is only
useful with the new YCbCr output types. The "auto" setting
should be fine for this but if you suspect your display is using
the wrong format it can be set manually to match. Adds the
analog Scart input type for inputs 7-10 which you can set under
the Input menu. Several small bugfixes.
Release 103007- Primary color
gamut has been significantly improved
and the ability to toggle between viewing the primary color and the video
source while making the adjustment was added to the command.
BetaRelease 102507- Adds
test patterns under the "Other" menu item. Test patterns can be
left up as you modify settings though only output settings
affect them since the intent is to calibrate the path from the
Radiance to your display. Bugfix for incorrect color conversion
when the input source was SD component (either HDMI or analog
component inputs). Bugfix for HDMI audio not always working into
a receiver/pre-amp. A bugfix for video stuttering when Radiance
HDMI output was connected to a receiver/pre-amp but
receiver/pre-amp was selecting another source. Other small
BetaRelease 102107- Adds
the color temperature command in the output menu under Output:Configs:XXX:Color
Mgmt. Full field test patterns are available at the points being
edited. Just cycle through the points with the arrow button to
get to them. Couple small bugfixes.
Release 101807- Bugfix for
stuttering video with some HDMI sources. Doubles the range on primary gamut
control. Bugfix for audio not initially being on for inputs set up with TOS/SPDF
audio. Bugfix for some menu timeout issues. Bugfixes for using non-HDMI
audio inputs with HDMI video inputs. Current audio input now displayed in
main menu. Other minor bugfixes.
BetaRelease 101107- Adds
output color management menu under Output:Configs:XXX:Color
Mgmt. Under this menu we've added primary color gamut adjustment
controls. This commands allow adjustment of the primary colors
and automatically fills the raster with the primary color being
adjusted. You really need a color probe to do this adjustment
correctly. Also under the new Color Mgmt menu we relocated the
Output Level setting, put a placeholder for the Color
Temperature command, and added an output Color/Hue command. The
input Color/Hue command still exists but the new version in the
output menu gives you one place to do color correction for the
display. Then use the input Color/Hue command to make any
necessary adjustment for source color/hue differences. So the
effective color/hue applied to the video uses the output
color/hue settings as the base and the specific input memories
color/hue setting as an offset from that. Also, the input Color
default was changed to 128 so although your color will not
change the displayed value will be different by -16.
Adds control of the output triggers in the menu under
Other:Trigger Out. You can set either trigger to go high for
Power, or input aspect settings of 4:3 or 2.35 for use with
masking systems. Adds menu control of the LED found in the menu
under Other:LED Setup. The LED now blinks either on or off when
remote buttons are pressed.
Bugfix for stuttering issue seen with Toshiba HD DVD players.
Bugfix for composite inputs sometimes not locking onto source.
Other small bugfixes.
BetaRelease 100507- Adds
the analog/TOS/coax audio inputs and coax audio output features.
There are default audio inputs for each video input but you can match these
them up any way you like in the menu under Input:Audio Setup: Source.
Improvements to the Audio menu were made and there is now a list
user defined audio features instead of only allowing one
feature to be set. Adds the auto power-on feature into the menu
under Other:OnOff Action:Auto On . More audio bugfixes. There
are some issues we're still working on with the newly
added analog/TOS/coax inputs going out on the HDMI outputs (not
always working initially depending on audio receiver and previous HDMI
Release 092507- Bugfix for
horizontal shift of image when downscaling and using 2.35 input aspect
ratio. Bugfix for video noise occurring in some situations on inputs 5 & 6.
HDCP on/off message added to info screen (pops up when you press "ok").
Adds 1080p-50 to user defined video edid. Other small bugfixes concerning
BetaRelease 091707- Bugfix
for 0915 sw problem where resolution changes on analog inputs
would result in a blue screen. Fixed an audio bug for detecting
48<->96Khz changes (or other rate changes for that matter).
Release 091507- Adds much more
HDMI control for audio/video. You can now send 1080p out to your display and
the audio over the 2nd HDMI output to a pre-amp/receiver with a blank 1080i
signal as well as passing back the audio devices EDID to your source. You
could have the video go to output 2 as well but many pre-amp/receivers won't
take 1080p. To set this up you would navigate in the menu to Output->Output2
and turn video off for output 2 for all inputs. Then under the Audio menu
set up "Always" use "Out2 EDID" with at least HDMI2 audio output being on.
Multi-channel PCM now works. Many audio related bugfixes.
BetaRelease 082607- Bugfix
for audio bug that due to audio format changes would result in
audio loss and sometimes interruption of video on HDMI inputs.
Please let us know on the Radiance beta forum if this
fixes/improves your audio issue or not. UPDATE: This update has
mixed results for the described audio problem--feel free to give
it a try but we're still working on a complete fix UPDATE: This update does fix
the described audio bug, the mixed result turned out to be a bad
Release 081507- Adds HDMI
audio in with audio out on HDMI outputs only. Currently the default is 2
channel PCM. By setting the EDID (under Input:HDMI Setup: EDID Setup) to passback
from output 1 or 2 you can enable other audio formats that are supported by the downstream HDMI device.
When you change the EDID setup you need to do a Save and power down and back
up (to cause devices to read the new EDID information). Future updates will enable more audio capabilities. Also a small HDCP bugfix.
BetaRelease 081107- Bugfix
for setting EDID when on memories B-D (note currently the EDID
setting is common across memories A-D currently). EDID audio
setting was removed as it is moving to another location in menu
and was not useable yet anyway. Several other small bugfixes.
Release 080407- Rev 080307 had
an old fpga which only gets used if your previously loaded sw revision was
earlier than 0725. If this old fpga got loaded you'll see bad video and
menus so run this update. Couple other small corrections
Don't use... Beta
Release 080307- Adds output
config selection per input memory/resolution changes. Set up which output
config to use in the menu under Input:Video Setup:RES:Out1 Select. So
for a given input memory and resolution (selected by the RES navigated to in
the menu) you can select 1 of the 8 output configs. Output 2 is currently
always a copy of output 1. Also, some bugfixes for auto color format
detection with HDMI inputs.
BetaRelease 072807- Adds video EDID controls for HDMI
inputs in the input menu (under Input:HDMI Setup:EDID
Setup:Video). You can use the default EDID which now enables
YCbCr 422 and 444 color formats or choose to "passback" the EDID
from either output or a "User Defined" mode lets you selectively
disable features. You can see what color format is being
used on an HDMI input by checking the Info screen in the menu or
pressing "ok" when the menu is not active.
Release 072607- Fixes a configuration
bug in 0723-0725 that caused saved settings to be lost when updating from
0722 or earlier sw. Unfortunately if you already updated to 0723-0725 and
reprogrammed your settings they will be lost again when you update to this
or future updates. We're sorry for the inconvenience.
use---caused loss of saved settings --BetaRelease 072507-
Fixes a problem with 1080i-50hz
output and certain input modes that gave a corrupted image.
Fixes a problem with factory reset defaults on SD inputs for PAL
sources which was in sw revs 0714-0723 (if you're seeing this
problem then perform a factory reset by pressing "menu 0999"
after updating to current sw). Improvements to sd video
detection and other small bug fixes.
Fixes a color processing bug and
adds an input color space format setting (Color Format). You can
set the color space format to be Auto (the default),
Bt.601 or Bt.709. A fix for 1080i being reported as 576i on the
info display. A few input menu changes. A "Picture" menu
contains what was called "Color" and the input level setting and
YC delay were moved there.
Adds input cropping command in the
input menu (under Input:Video Setup:Res:Size:Asp:Crop TopLeft
and Crop BotRight. Cropping defaults were updated for
analog inputs. Bugfix for input video/pc level setting. Fix for
switching between 576i and 1080i-50 on component inputs. Some
Fixes a couple of frame drop
issues. Fixes another case of "other" input mode settings
being used when one of the listed modes should have been
highlighted. Couple other small bugfixes.
Bugfix for 1080p-60 sources which
sometimes had some green/red sparklies. Fix for input modes
sometimes showing up as "Other" in the input menu when they
obviously weren't. Bugfix for saving the output config when
changed in the output menu.
