Updating the Radiance XS/XS+/XS3D

About the updates: The most current firmware upgrade for the RadianceXS/XS+/XS3D 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 RadianceXS will turn off. Turn the unit back on, acknowledge any on-screen completion message, and you are ready to continue using the RadianceXS.

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.

Several small menu improvements and fixes. Small improvement in input switching speed.

[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.

[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 SpectraCal and  ChromaPure 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. Added a direct command to globally disable video on output 1, "menu 0985". 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.

Production 020412- Fix for issue in 013112-020212 with not always enabling CRT 3D Glasses sync box. Fix for firmware 12xx11-020212 not always picking up s-video inputs when switching to them (problem only seen on XS).

[DOWNLOAD]

 

Production 013112- 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.

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]

 

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 '+'.

Updated Documentation-

 

[DOWNLOAD]

  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.
[DOWNLOAD]

 

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.

[DOWNLOAD]

  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'.
[DOWNLOAD]

 

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 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]

 

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
sales@lumagen for 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. 

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.

-----2D + 3D releases and newer, improved output configuration functionality ABOVE-----(for 2D or 3D units)

 -----2D only releases with older, less capable output configuration functionality BELOW----

  Production 070310- 
  • 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 0942" = 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","M0942"). 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). (Note: XS+  already has a higher settable pixel clock)

  • 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 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 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.
  • Couple other small bugfixes

  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.

Production 102509-   

  • 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 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.

  Production 092209-  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-  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 bugfixes.

Production 090409-  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 Match.

  Beta 090309-  Several small bugfixes made in this update.

Beta 080109-  Bugfix for change made in 072309 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.

Beta 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.

  Beta 072309-  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). Both HDMI outputs can now put out video+audio.

Beta 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. Bugfix for HD analog video in.

  Beta 070409-  Bugfix for selecting TOS inputs. Fix for issue with spdif/tos/analog audio in to HDMI audio out.

Beta 070309-  Bugfix for new auto aspect feature not always getting the correct initial setting from the source.

[DOWNLOAD]

  Beta 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 itself.
[DOWNLOAD]

 

Beta 070109-  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 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.
