Updating the Radiance Pro

 

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

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

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

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

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

Fix for an intermittent video/audio drop with a Direct TV source.  Added feature for Kaleidescape player to eliminate output mode changes when changing from  Kaleidescape menu to movie -- a short "how to" is below.
 
  Update time ~5 minutes @230k from previous firmware. Systems with 18Ghz input cards will have ~1 minute bootup time on first power up after this update as internal input chip firmware updates---if after first power-on it comes up with green/pink colorization then turn Pro off and back on to power-up for a second time.

How to set up Kaleidescape Strato & Pro to eliminate unnecessary output mode changes
With many projectors changing the output mode (.ei 4k24 to 4k60) can be rather slow. The Kaleidescape player always uses 60hz for it's menu but when playing a movie it's preferable to have it set to play at 24Hz so going between menu and movies can leave the viewer sometimes waiting 30 seconds with a blank screen while the equipment syncs up to the new output mode. A very simple way to fix this is just to set the Pro to output 4k24 for all input modes but then the less common case of 60Hz videos from the Kaliedescape would look stuttery so a method to stay in 24Hz output for only the Kaleidescape menus and 24Hz movies is desirable. There is a way to detect the special case of Kaleidescapes' menu screen and with a new option in the Pro we can eliminate this slow resync time between menus and movies and keep 60Hz videos looking good. To do this, make a change in the Kaleidescape players advanced video setup menu and set the HDMI Content Type Metadata to 'Transmit content type metadata' (the Kaleidescape will now output a special graphics flag over HDMI when in it's menu). On the Pro menu under Input: Options: HDMI Setup: Type, set the Graphic Flag Use setting to 'Use'. Now when the Kaleidescape is in it's menu the Pro will detect and use the graphics flag and classify the input mode as 'Other' (instead of 4k60). So the last setting to make is in the Pro's Output Setup menu and for the input mode condition of 'Other' change the Pro's output mode, CMS's and Style selection to match what is setup when detecting a 24Hz input mode.  The Pro will now stay in the same 24Hz output mode when Kaleidescape changes between 60Hz menu and 24Hz movies but still allow the Pro to change to a 60Hz mode when 60Hz videos are played.

 Update time ~1 minutes @230k from previous firmware
[DOWNLOAD]    042218- Doubled range for HDR intensity mapping ratio setting. Modified Output HDR menu so as to not obscure view while setting Display Max LIght. Added extra check of output device EDID for 600mhz capability after seeing a couple of devices reporting 300Mhz support in one part of their EDID and 600Mhz in another section---these devices are now detected as 600Mhz capable. Added Kaleidescape setup menu under Other: I/O Setup: Kaleidescape for a Strato/Co-Star switching setup in order to automatically switch to the active device (also requires buying the "Co-Star for Lumagen" feature. Contact Kaleidescape for details). To use the Pro's Strato/Co-Star switching solution  the Strato needs to be on an 18Ghz input and the Co-Star must on an input card different from the Strato. Added new input aspect ratios of 2.0 and 2.2, selectable on Lumagen remote with Alt then 4:3 and Alt then 16:9, respectively. These two new input aspects can also be detected with auto aspect feature when enabled. Also added separate sizing memory for the 2.40 input aspect (alt- 2.35) which had been sharing sizing parameters with 2.35. Added an option to reduce maximum bandwidth under Output: Styles: StyleX: HDMI Format: Reduce Max. When enabled the blanking time is reduced by ~5% so the original picture is not being resized and if the display accepts non-standard timings this can be a solution in some cases where the video connection is unreliable or slow to get picture.

   Beta 121017- Small bugfix for correctly coming back up on a virtual input if went to standby when it was selected. Added direct commands to select either default 18Ghz output firmware or newer firmware from manufacturer. Press "menu 0851" to switch to newer 18Ghz output firmware or "menu 0850" to switch to original firmware. The Pro will automatically reboot (no save is necessary) and then take a minute to complete the change . All Pro's are currently using the original firmware and if you don't have 18Ghz outputs or are having no issues then there is no need to perform these commands. If you have an issue that you feel may be hdmi related between an 18Ghz output of the Pro and a display or are just curious then please try the newer firmware with "menu 0851" and we appreciate any feedback you have on it. You can go back to the original firmware with "menu 0850" if necessary. You can check which you are using to verify by pressing "menu 0536" and at the end of the last line there is a ",1" or ",0" which designates the new or original 18Ghz output firmware respectively. Update time ~2 minutes @230k from previous firmware

   Beta 120417- The change in 112417 for allowing audio turnoff of individual 18Ghz outputs exposed a bug in hdmi chip fw from manufacturer that would prevent some audio formats from working on one of the 18Ghz cards 2 outputs if the other was disabled for audio. So audio output enable for 18Ghz outputs are now paired (.ie 1 with 2, etc)  in the output setup menu. Improved some of the switching changes in 112417-112617 to work better for some sources such as Roku Ultra. Added a new genlock mode which is more accurate with less jitter than was the case previously. The new genlock mode is labeled "normal" and the previous genlock mode is labled "fast" as it can be faster in some cases if the display handles the jitter. The "normal" genlock mode is usually the better choice and is the default.

 Beta 052516-  Added input colorspace to test pattern mode command in the menu under Other: Test Pattern: Test Mode as well as corrections to the test pattern mode function. Bugfix for fan turnoff if Auto power-on was enabled---if you were using this or are not sure then you should remove power after completion of update before restarting. Bugfix for proper function of settings in menu under Other: OnOff Setup. Bugfix for correct checkmarks on CMS's after modifying Output Setup. Bugfix for sometimes using incorrect CMS color decoder, black and white settings. Bugfix to avoid corrupting a test pattern if the active but undisplayed source turns off or changes modes.  Added rs232 command to set test pattern mode with input colorspace, ZY533ICSDM. The 'I' field is the input colorspace with legal values of 1 or 2 corresponding to Rec709 or Rec2020 (for further information on the other fields in this command see the ZY532 command in Tech Tip 11). Added rs232 command ZQI50 to to query Rec2020 support on the display connected to main video output (4 on 44XX and 2 on 42XX). ZQI50 replies with 'Y' or 'N'. Expanded rs232 command, ZY46, to handle output colorspace as well as pixel format. Usage is ZY46FC where 'F' is pixel format as described in Tech Tip 11 and 'C' (legal value 0-3) sets the current CMS output colorspace to Auto,601,709 or 2020 respectively. Other small bugfixes and improvements.

Bugfix for sometimes losing input video on mode change. Improved display EDID processing to handle a new method of specifying 4k60/50 capability.
  Update time ~1 minutes @230k from previous firmware
[DOWNLOAD]   Beta 051216- Adds Rec2020 colorspace support (tested and working with UHD Panasonic UB900 blu-ray player). After updating, if you wish to permit Rec2020 video to the Pro then in the menu under Global: Video: Src Format modify the Rec2020 setting from "No" to "Auto" or "Yes". The "Auto" setting will permit Rec2020 from sources connected to the Pro if the display on output 4 (or 2 for 42XX) of the Pro  is connected to a Rec2020 capable display. The Output Setup menu allows specifying different CMS's now for Rec2020 or Rec601/709 sources. A new CMS labeled "Default" is initially used for Rec2020 sources after updating to this firmware. If calibration and adjustment for Rec2020 is to be done then the CMS must be changed from "Default" to another CMS in the Output: Output Setup menu. Each CMS can have it's output colorspace specified in the menu under Output: CMS's: CMS: Colorspace (defaults to "Auto" which uses the colorspace detected from the source). The label command for CMS's and Style's is now working. The information screen now shows more complete video format information, .ie 422-SDR2020 for 4:2:2 with SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) and Rec2020. Bugfix for output bottom mask not functioning independently from top mask. Input color precision improvement for 422 input. Bugfix for several cases of no output video.

   Beta 010816-  Added genlock in the menu under Input: Options: Genlock. Genlocking to a source can lower video delay and avoid an occasional frame skip or double. Setting genlock can result in slightly longer switching times between sources. Fix for auto aspect with 4:3 source. Fix for issue with "Output Copy" between styles that linkes the output shrink & mask such that changing one would change the other. Changed the zoom control to be temporary rather than saved setting. Fixed an issue with using 2.40 in output aspect per input aspect mode. Moved "Scale Bias" in menu under Input: Options as it makes sense to be there since it's not a per resolution/aspect setting. Other small fixes.

   Beta 010316- A fix for output mask and shrink settings being mislocated. For example, if you had set up Style 0 to use an output mask (or shrink) it would use the mask setting from Style 1. If you haven't done a "save" since updating then it should just be fixed when you do this update. If it does not appear to be fixed then a "save" may have been done and you can then properly relocate the output shrink & mask settings by going into service mode (pressing "menu 0910") and then pressing "menu 0744".  You should  then do a "save" to keep the properly located settings. If you're not using the output mask & shrink settings or you've already noticed and manually fixed the output mask or shrink settings you can ignore this update.

  Beta 120315- Fix for incomplete display of output modes in output setup menu in 120215 firmware.
  Update time ~1 minutes @230k from previous firmware
[DOWNLOAD]   Beta 120215- Couple of important changes to input menu which now allow selection of input settings based on input resolution including 4K or Cinema 4K (4096 pixels wide vs. 3840). We had to change up the input menu a little to accommodate this so now under "Input" there is an "Input Setup" menu which assigns different input configs based on the input resolution. There is also a separate input configuration menu where you make settings for the different "In Configs". So the Input menu  is now similar to the output side where we have an Output Setup menu that selects CMS, Style, etc based on the input mode. Also added many more modes to the Output Setup menu so you can differentiate 4K and many others for selecting the output settings. Note: due to the input menu changes it's possible you may have to redo a couple of input settings if your setup was complex enough. For this reason you may want to download the new config utility that now supports the Pro and save your configuration first.  Several bugfixes for loss of output video under certain conditions. Some other smaller bugfixes.  Couple small tweaks to the temperature readout in Fan menu. Added direct code to set input HDCP to 1.X ("menu 0811") or back to the default of HDCP 2.2 ("menu 0821")---useful for some new 4K sources if you have an older HDCP 1.4 display.

  Update time ~1 minutes @230k from previous firmware
[DOWNLOAD]   Beta 110415- Added per input memory selection for HDCP 2.2 /HDCP 1.x. This allows older 1.x displays to display material from some of the newer UHD sources (like Shield/FireHD/Roku4). When the UHD source sees that it's connected to a 1.x device it may send lower resolution than UHD (.ie FireHD sends 1080p in this case). This new Pro setting is found in the menu under "Input: HDCP".
