Updating the Radiance Mini-3D

About the updates: The most current firmware upgrade for the Radiance Mini 3D 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 updates.

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 RadianceMini will turn off. Turn the unit back on, acknowledge any on-screen completion message, and you are ready to continue using the RadianceMini.

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.

[DOWNLOAD]

 

Production 102913- 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.

Beta 091112- 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.

[DOWNLOAD]  

Beta 090712- 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.

[DOWNLOAD]

 

Beta 090512- 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.

[DOWNLOAD]   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 software from   ChromaPure and  SpectraCal 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 by tomorrow.
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. Other small fixes and improvements were also made.

[DOWNLOAD]  

Production 030112- 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 setups.

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.

[DOWNLOAD]

 

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.
[DOWNLOAD]  

Production 090511- 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.

[DOWNLOAD]

 

Production 090211  Bugfix in 090111 for loss of video with mode change caused loss of video in another case and is now corrected.
[DOWNLOAD]

[DOWNLOAD]  

Production 082111- Several bugfixes for previous changes made in 081411 update.

  • Adds 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 under Output:Styles:Mask/Shrink.

  • 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 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 for a video issue occurring at power-on with some Minis giving corrupt video.

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 flashing on.

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, 8=side-by-side).
[DOWNLOAD]   Production 041511  Adds saturation test patterns (red,green,blue,yellow,cyan,magenta) at 25%,50%,75%. Bugfix for rs232 command 'ZY42....' which did not use the correct cms index  for parameter updates. Bugfix for not Mini not being able to control Lumagen CRT sync box for use with 3D emitter and glasses.

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).

[DOWNLOAD]   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.
