Updating the VisionDVI, VisionHDP, VisionHDQ & VisionProHDP
About the updates: The most current firmware upgrade for the VisionDVI, VisionHDP,
VisionHDQ and VisionProHDP is shown at the top of the list below this section. You can check your firmware revision by pressing "menu",0903 on your remote. The update can be performed with a PC and a serial cable. 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: 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. It will start updating which can take a couple of minutes. The PC utility will finish and tell you when its done. 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.
Production Release 090108-
Bugfix for some missing test
patterns in 071808. Bugfix for updating with older
configurations which would result in distorted colors until a
factory reset. When you press "menu 0903" it will now show you
your configuration revision. It's not a problem if it's not
current but if you're recalibrating you should start with a
factory reset which will make the configuration current and will
give better calibration results. You can also reset the
configuration to the current level by enabling service mode ("menu 0910")
and going into IN:CONFIG:COLR:CTMP and pressing "ok" to reset
the grayscale data--remember a "save" is needed to keep any
configuration changes before powering down. A bug was fixed for flashing lines in video
that occurred with a few systems.
Production Release 071808-
Bugfix for YC delay not getting updated for input mode changes
(until entering the YC delay command). Bugfix for output mode
gamut not getting initialized (could result in weird colors or
no color (this could have been worked around by using the gamut command
to disable or set defaults which would correct it). Bugfix for output
shrink parameters incorrectly affecting aspect sidebar (or
top/bottom bar) widths.
Production Release 012608-
A couple bugfixes for the new gamut
command. Also added the ability to toggle between small & large
window patterns and live video while making the gamut adjustment
(press '4' to toggle between these).
Production Release 012508-
Fix for 1080-24p input to 1080-24p output (previously would stutter).
Adds primary color gamut control. Must be in service mode (press
"menu 0910") and then find it under OUT:MISC:GAMUT. A
color probe is necessary to correct primaries accurately. Adds a no-op
character ('_') to rs232 interface. Couple other small bugfixes.
Production Release 032507-
Bugfix- when initially enabling NLS
by selecting it in the menu the capability to adjust it
visually would not work. If you already had NLS setup on your
system then you most likely would not have noticed this issue.
Production Release 030107-
A fix for stuttering issue with newly added 1080-24p output
mode. A fix for visually cropping bottom of 1080i sources. A fix
for a timeout issue when using color temp menu and the text is
Production Release 022007-
Adds 1080-24p output for HDP, HDQ,
ProHDP. To select it use the VRES command in the menu. When you
set the VRES to 1080 it will ask you whether you want
interlaced, progressive (which uses the currently set vertical
rate), 24 SF, or 24 P. This is the only method allowed for
setting the vertical rate to 24Hz.
Production Release 010807-
A fix for the PAL force film deinterlacing mode not performing
too well (would comb for a time occasionally). If you're
watching PAL film sources this mode should now work better than
the AUTO modes. Couple other small bug fixes.
Production Release 010607-
Fixes a couple of issues that
occurred in the 122206 release but had been working in prior
releases: SDI input had breakup for HDP/HDQ/ProHDP, genlock was
not working for NTSC or PAL sources for all units. Added a small
option to disable power-on messages when "on" is pressed and
power is already on, press "menu 0916" to disable/enable.
Production Release 122206-
Adds support for 1080-24p, 1080-25p and 1080-30p as input
sources on all the current units. Works great with Sony BDP-S1
Blu-ray player. The only caveat is that if you're running HDMI
into a receiver/audio processor before the Lumagen you'll likely
find it doesn't like 1080-24p and won't get a picture that way.
So you may have to decide between using coax/optical audio
outputs with 1080-24p video going direct to the Lumagen vs. HDMI
audio and 1080i going through the receiver to the Lumagen. To get 1080-24p to come out of the Sony you need
to make a couple of settings on the Sony and your Lumagen, see
<faq> for how to set things
up. There were also a few other small bug fixes.
Production Release 112206-
Improves deinterlacing of PAL and NTSC
film sources on DVI inputs (biggest
improvement was for PAL film deinterlacing). Fixes a slight line
twitter issue with 1080i sources using 1080i output mode.
Fixes a slight line bounce issue with 1080i film sources being
converted to progressive resolutions less than 600p. Adds a test pattern mode setting
which allows for selecting test patterns that use the input
settings or are independent of the input settings. Prior to this
test patterns always used the input settings but if you're
wanting to just have an unchanging test pattern reference then
you should change the test pattern mode that you'll find in the
menu next to the test pattern menu item. Added a better edid entry
for 1366x768 which is more recognizable by PC's--must use edid
setting of USER or DFLT+EXT to enable this. Correction to color
temp window pattern IRE values (something that's only available
when in service mode). Added rs232 access to contrast 2 test
pattern. Bugfix for an rs232 command (ZT)
that prints text onscreen--could lock up unit if performed when
unit was in standby mode. Small correction to window test
pattern (background was slightly above 0 IRE). Added 100% smpte color bars
(use up/down arrows to switch between 75% and 100%). Changed
overscan pattern so lines are spaced at 2% intervals instead of
Production Release 100706-
Fixes problem of
bad pixels in upper left corner of display for digital output
mode for inputs 3 & 4 occurring with 100606 release.
Production Release 100606-
Fixes problem in 092806-100506 releases with 1080i sources
that caused intermittent breakup of video in some situations.
Bugfix for internal test patterns that under several conditions
might shift the pattern or cause it to only fill half the
modification was made to the mask command to allow changing
between masks without them being reset. Added functionality for
INPUT button on advanced remote. Added function for ALT button
on advanced remote to select masks. So, for example, you
can press ALT then 2 to enable mask number 2 or you could press
ALT then CLR to turn off masking. Valid mask numbers are 1-15.To
see what's available on the new advanced remote
Production Release 092806-
Adds support for buttons on new
advanced remote. Adds genlock
for 48hz in and 48hz out. Adds per-memory input types. Adds FILM
deinterlacing mode to force film mode. Adds AUTO2 deinterlacing
mode for HD. AUTO2 switches to VIDNC mode when dropping into
video mode. AUTO was relabeled to AUTO1 and it uses VIDPP mode
for video as it always has. Adds second line for rs232 text
display command, see the
details. Bugfix for not maintaining correct aspect ratio when
zooming under certain conditions. Adds a second contrast test
pattern that has a 0 IRE background with 3 sets of -4 and +4 IRE
bars. Contrast2 test pattern modified to have a minus 4 to plus
4 IRE ramp in the middle of screen. Fixes a problem with Toshiba
HD DVD player HDCP handshaking that occasionally would result in
"snow" instead of video. If you wish to enable this Tosh fix it
you must go to IN->CONFIG->DVI->HOTPLG and set it to RECON (which
means that when video is dropped and restarted by the source, as
is the case with the Toshiba A1, hotplug will be toggled
upon reconnection of video). The RECON setting eliminates the
bad HDCP connection with the Toshiba thus avoiding a screen of
snow but the Toshiba also does not seem to do 422 after its
enabled. So if you wish to use 422 and you get a screen of snow
from your Toshiba you can press "stop" and "play" on the Toshiba
until the picture comes back and once the picture is up it stays
Production Release 080406-
Bugfix for users of auto-independent
mode for occurrences where wrong memory would be selected. Also
allows selection of any memory in auto-indep mode when there is
no signal on the input.
Production Release 080306-
Bugfix for 48hz, 1080p, passthru
setup with a 1080i film source resulting in some occasional
stuttering in picture. Bugfix for possibly getting a snowy
screen when switching from DVI to analog inputs. Bugfix for
occasional slow display response when changing from HD to SD on
a source (like a cable box) when genlock is on. Added feature
for VisionProHDP to allow skipping unused inputs when using
front panel input select button--disable a particular input by
selecting it with the remote and then under MISC->CNTRL->SKIP
switch it to YES.
Production Release 072906-
Bugfix for switching from HD to SD
and video not appearing until pressing the "ok" button on
remote. Bugfix for DVI input 4 (on VisionHDQ only) not signaling
hotplug which would result in some DVD players not working on
Production Release 072606-
Bugfix for 072506 release for problem
switching to SDI inputs when in auto-independent mode.
Production Release 072506-
Big improvement in blanking output
video when switching between inputs and memories. Its also a bit
quicker when switching. Bugfix for auto-ind output mode usage
with DVI inputs. Several other small bugfixes.
Production Release 071706-
Adds a new feature for shrinking the
output image in order to correct overscan with some digital
displays and as a convenience when using screen masking systems. See the
<faq> for more
details on the new "shrink" command. Bugfix for an
HDCP message that can incorrectly be displayed (bug was in 0713
sw). Adds rs232 commands for zoom, output aspect, and new output
shrink command see the
Production Release 071306-
Replaces 070506 which had a minor
bug with internal test patterns that caused them to display and
quickly turn off on some inputs with inactive video. Production Release 070506-
Replaces 070206 which had a small
bug. Also allows the masking feature to adjust left, right, top
& bottom separately (ie. top/bottom and left/right were always
the same width in 070206). If you were one of the few that
updated to 070206 and used the new mask feature you'll have to
go adjust 2 of the edges again since the 4 edges are adjusted
separately now. Also adds the field flip capability for 1080i
input on DVI--this allows us to fix an error with the Humax
receivers' ( a device available in the UK)
1080i output over HDMI. So if you're using the Humax receiver
with 1080i into
the Lumagen DVI input go to IN->CONFIG->CNTRL->DEINT->FIELD
and set it to FLIP and you'll fix the up/down jitter.
Production Release 070206-
Adds a masking (aka borders)
feature. Look for it in the menu under IN->CONFIG->ADJ->SIZE->MASK.
There are 15 masks that can be shared between input memories,
for more info.
Bugfix for faint banding with component inputs which was in
Production Release 061706-
Changes the EDID default back to the
060506 setting (Samsung Blu-Ray and other Samsung HDMI players
needed this simpler setup). The newer default EDID option is now
labeled EDID+EXT and adds more display modes such as 480i. Also
added 444 YCbCr EDID flag to the EDID user mode (you can enable
it under IN->CONFIG->DVI->EDID with USER mode). If source device
does switch to 444 YCbCr mode than you'll need to change the DVI
input type to HDMI 444 component. Note that for some Samsung
players including the latest Blu-Ray player you can only use
DFLT or PASS mode. See the
<faq> for more
details on the new EDID functionality.
Production Release 061606-
Adds extended EDID functionality
which will allow users to get 422 YCbCr from the Toshiba HD DVD
player for instance. For more info on the new EDID functionality
go to the
<faq> . Bugfix for
cropping right edge with 2.35 output aspect and 16:9 input
aspect. Now displays NLS on status line when non-linear stretch
mode is active. New default setting for 768p-50hz output. Bugfix
for missing 6 pixels in bottom-right corner in passthru mode.
Bugfix for missing 1 pixel of right edge in passthru mode.
Bugfix for occasional incorrect setting of deinterlacing mode
when switching inputs/memories under certain conditions.
Production Release 060506-
Added new test patterns (color bars, gray
ramp, magenta, yellow, cyan field) and also reordered them a
bit. Bugfix for VIDEO deinterlacing mode problem that could
still allow unit to go into film mode. AUTO2 deinterlacing mode
was improved for PAL video (in general AUTO2 should be
preferable if you're watching mix of video and film). When
in NLS mode will now display NLS instead of 4:3 on status. Bugfix
for HDQ when switching between some 1080i sources and a scart
source on inputs 5 and 6 which gave s strip of lines overlaying
the scart video and would go away if you reselected the scart
Production Release 051806-
Adds a fix for the Toshiba HDA1 HD
DVD player colorspace error with HD DVD's. Press "menu 0948" to
enable correction of this color error on a per memory basis. By
pressing "menu 0948" again you can toggle the correction off.
Bugfix for an error that can occur in independent output mode
when detecting 1080i source material that can on occasion result
in the output mode not being set up correctly. Bugfix when using
independent output mode with 1080i sources which could cause
deinterlacing to get stuck in video mode even when watching a
Production Release 051406-
Adds a new deinterlacing mode for SD
sources which is more careful about switching into film mode.
The new mode is labeled AUTO2, the original AUTO mode is labeled
AUTO1. AUTO2 is preferable (in cases we've seen) if you're
watching a mix of video and film on a given input. Fixes a case
of false PAL film detection. Fixes an issue when using PAL with
an output refresh rate other than 50hz which would result in
unnecessary stuttering if genlock had ever been turned on.
Bugfix for intermittent field flip error when using 1080i source
& 1080i output & set for passthru.
Production Release 042606-
Bugfix for HDMI 444 YCbCr
input colorspace which was not changing between SD & HD when the
input mode changed---not to be confused with an upcoming fix for
the HD-A1 RGB colorspace issue (to work around what is actually
a Toshiba bug).
Production Release 042506-
Fixes a color bug in the 042106 release
that caused screen to go green/blue under certain conditions.
Production Release 042106-
Completes the 10 bit datapath for the
Production Release 041406-
The 041006 release had a bug that disabled
Scart input types, this update fixes that. Also a bugfix for
1080-24sf output when used with 1080i film input. Production Release 041006-
Adds per input sidebar and bottom/topbar
intensity settings. Previously this was a global setting.
Adds a special command (press "menu 0971") to enable use of the
1.85 input aspect button as 2.35 (really a 2.35 aspect
letterboxed in a 16:9 window as done on many DVD's) on a per
input memory basis. Previously you needed to select 16:9 as the
input aspect and zoom in twice. Fixes the overscan and
crosshatch test pattern width--they were a pixel short.
Production Release 031806-
Fixes bug in 030806 release which under
certain conditions would have a discoloration on a few pixels of
the left edge. Production Release 030806-
Improved 1080i per-pixel motion adaptive
deinterlacing (the VIDPP or AUTO modes) to minimize blur during
motion in video. Adds 1080i to 1080p passthru capability
(enabling the PASS setting under IN->CONFIG->ADJ->SIZE->SCALE
previously was ignored for this combination of input and output
resolution). Bug fix for genlock when using 1080p-48hz
output. Adds fullscreen grayscale patterns for use with the
color temperature (CTMP) command that is accessible in the
service menu. Bug fix for RGB input (DVI-D or analog) colorspace
conversion. Note: If you've already calibrated colors correctly
(which involves adjusting the color and hue offsets) then you've
already compensated for the error and you needn't do anything.
If you haven't calibrated the colors for such an input source
then press "menu 0906" to enable the colorspace conversion
correction (note that you can toggle back to the uncorrected
conversion by pressing "menu 0906" again). Also, if you do a
factory reset the unit will use the new, correct conversion.
Production Release 021906- Replaces 021806
release. Fixes bug in 0205 thru 0218 sw which under some
circumstances would cause SD deinterlacing to look bad (lots of
jaggies). Observed on SDI input but could occur on other SD
inputs as well.
Production Release 021806- Replaces 021406
release. Fixes bug with menus which occurred occasionally when
changing the deinterlacing mode for HD. Fixes a bug that when
passthru mode was enabled but not actually in effect causing
1080i inverse telecine to not run--and if watching the
film/video flag it would appear to be stuck in one of those
Production Release 021406- Replaces 020506
release. Adds 108024sf support for 1080i inverse telecine. Fixes
stutter issue with 1080i inverse telecine using 48hz refresh
rate for output. Fixes issue switching to 720p source after
1080i in the 020506 release. Fixes video degradation issue for
1080i inverse telecine when running greater than 900p with 72 or
75 hz refresh rate.
Pre-Production Release 020506- Adds 1080i
inverse telecine for the HDP and ProHDP models. This first
release works for 1080i-60hz sources running the Lumagen output
rate at 48,60 and 72hz (actual vals are 47.95, 59.94 and 71.93hz)
and 1080i-50hz sources running
50 or 75 hz output refresh rates. The 1080-24SF output is not working yet
for inverse telecine and running the Lumagen output rate at 72 or 75 hz
there is display degradation when running output resolutions
beyond 900p. We'll be working to get these last
couple of issues corrected soon. Pressing "menu 0918" enables a F(ilm)/V(ideo)
status display---a single character in the lower right hand part
of the screen will show you whether its in film or video mode.
You need to have the deint mode for HD (in the menu under IN->CONFIG->CNTRL->DEINT) set to "auto" to allow inverse telecine to turn on when film is detected. There are several
other small bug fixes in this release.
Production Release 122705-
Replaces the 122305 release which had some
fpga timing issues.
Production Release 122305-
Replaces the 120805 release which had an
issue with SDI inputs and the DVI-D output on the VisionDVI.
Also fixes an issue seen with certain component 720p sources
that would intermittently disrupt the picture (was seen on a
newer Sony HD300 satellite receiver). Production Release 120805-
Adds the choice of the LBOX remote button
as NLS disable (before only the 1.85 button could be used).
Fixes a bug when cropping right edge with NLS enabled. Fixes bug
when adjusting bottom-right and making aspect selection. Fixes
bug on SDI inputs when source is film and output is 24sf. Fix
for skipping frames when PAL video is the source and output at
60hz rate. Fix for VisionHDP and VisionDVI not powering up on
optional SDI inputs when set up to do so.
Production Release 111205- Fixes a case
when using a PAL source with output rate set around 60hz with
genlock on that caused judder. Fixes a faint line issue for some
cases in the HD per-pixel motion adaptive deinterlacing and
improves the detail for resolutions less than 1080p (tooting our
horn--saw dramatic improvement comparing our 1080i->768p
conversion vs. the internal conversion on a nice $5k plasma).
Adds 1080 24sf support for HD per-pixel motion adaptive
Production Release 110705-
Added an RS232 powerup/powerdown command
(turn on the Lumagen and it can turn on your projector for
to read about it in the faq. Added per-pixel motion adaptive
deinterlacing for 1080i sources,
to read about its usage. Bugfix for 50hz source going out at 60
hz judder, bugfix for case of bad film/video detection on DVI
inputs, bugfix for analog horizontal active timing adjustment,
improvement in video output for certain genlock cases
(eliminates some noise in a case that was found).
Production Release 100405- Replaces 092705
and fixes several bugs when using 1080i sources, fixes a screen
tear issue, fixes the ability to use Scart on the VisionDVI.
Note for VisionDVI users: due to processing limitations
if you are using analog output in either auto mode or analog
only mode (press "menu 0932" to check the mode) and you wish to
use the new 1080i processing you need to set the pixel clock to
99Mhz or less. It's normally at 108mhz in these modes and you
can press "menu 0933" to check or modify the pixel clock. When
changing the pixel clock you'll want to select "RECALC CRTC
PARAMS" in order to keep the output mode as close as possible to
your current settings when the clock is changed.
Production Release 092705- Replaces 092005
and fixes the cropping issue on the bottom, edge color problems
on right and left side and the 1080i@50hz judder issue. If you
find problems with this new update please email us at
email@example.com with a description of the issue and send
your configuration file if possible.
Production Release 092005-
New and improved 1080i deinterlacing gives improved
sharpness and removes any line bounce for 1080i sources with
output modes greater than 480p. The other half of the 1080i
improvements (which can only fit in the HDP and ProHDP) for an even sharper picture with 1080i film sources
(technically referred to as 1080i inverse telecine) is the next
piece of the 1080i enhancements to be added. Adds an rs232
command for printing messages onscreen which can be used for
useful for centrally automated home theater systems. For
documentation of this new rs232 command <click here>
Production Release 090805-
Fixes a bug where NLS mode would get
incorrectly turned on for the letterbox input aspect. Fixes the intermittent PC
bootup issue mentioned below.
Production Release 090705-
The 090105 revision dropped access to the
color temp command in the service menu. This update fixes that. Production Release 090105: Fixes a judder issue that occurred with video sources when driving a different refresh rate then the source (particular case was 50hz in and 75hz out)---note there is always a small amount of judder in a case like this but the bug gave a much worse result. Fixes a bug which made genlock locking take too long. Fixes a bug which could turn off video out under certain circumstances. There is currently an issue with releases after 081605 with PC's booting up on DVI inputs correctly--if you're using a PC on a DVI input please continue with 081605 for now.
Production Release 082905: Fixes a bug when cropping bottom-right (with CROP->BOTR command) which is in the 0823-0826 sw. Adds option to NLS command to use 1.85 aspect button on remote as a 4:3 aspect with NLS off
(for more details
). Fixes a tearing issue when using genlock that in most cases could occur only when vertical output resolution was over 800.
Production Release 082605: Replaces 082305 and fixes VisionDVI portion of update which had problems with inputs 3 & 4. No change for VisionHDP or VisionProHDP from the 082305 release so if you have those units there is no reason to re-update to 082605.
Production Release 082305: Adds a much improved NLS (non-linear stretch mode) commonly used to eliminate sidebars when using widescreen displays with 4:3 material
for more details on usage. If you're using the old NLS command currently please note that although the new NLS command tries to be compatible with the old version you may need to do some cropping adjustments on the sides using IN->CONFIG->ADJ->SIZE->TOPL and BOTR but the new capabilities more than compensate for the inconvenience. Adds an enhancement to SD video resolution when using "DEINT->AUTO" mode (the enhancement was already in use if "DEINT->VIDEO" mode was used). Fixes a genlock issue that under specific conditions could cause a screen tear at bottom of picture. Fixes IRE adjust bug in warmup test pattern.
Production Release 081605: replaces 081005 as the DVI output noise/timing issue was not enough and some units had video noise with that update. Also fixed a bug with a screen-tear that could occur with genlock on and some combinations of zooming/cropping and input/output resolutions.
Production Release 081005: replaces 080905 as the shift issue mentioned was not completely fixed. There was also a possible DVI output noise issue in 080905.
Production Release 080905: several genlock mode bug fixes. Genlock with xbox issue fixed. In addition to the normally used output rates of 50 & 59.94 Hz, output refresh rates such as 48, 72, 75 Hz and 24sf should now work well with genlock and film sources. Improvements to PAL deinterlacing which fixes some occurrences of combing and incorrect switches between film/video mode when the deint->auto mode is set. Fixed an issue in the 07xxxx revs which could cause a horizontal shift when changing between HD sources.
Production Release 072605: replaces 072505 release. One more genlock bug fixed which would give flashing output sometimes with NTSC or PAL sources.
Production Release 072505: Couple more bugfixes for genlock that resulted in dropped frames, especially when using 24/48/72/75 hz output rates. Fix for intermittent line twitter when using a 1080i source and using 1080i output.
Production Release 072405-
replaces 072305 another genlocking bug was
Production Release 072305-
replaces 072205 with additional bugfix for
Production Release 072205-
replaces 072005 and fixes various bugs with
the new genlock feature. Also, for further explanation of genlock
Production Release 072005 -
Added genlock (source lock) feature. Genlock can be used when you've got
matching input and output refresh rates such as NTSC in (which is 59.94hz) and
59.94hz out and serves to avoid dropped or repeated frames on the output. Can
also be used for film sources when the output rate is a multiple of the input
rate such as output rates of 24Sf, 47.95hz & 71.93hz when using NTSC input or an
output rate of 75hz with PAL input (50hz). You must enable genlock under the IN
menu (IN->CONFIG->CNTRL->GENLCK). You can check the status of genlock by
pressing "ok" several times when no menu is onscreen. There are some situations
where it is disabled even when turned on such as if you've got a 50hz source and
you're output rate is at 59.94hz. The status will be either off, disabled,
locking or locked.
The deint menu was moved under the CNTRL menu. Added a separate copy command for
the inputs to copy only color information (under IN->COPY). Modified color
and hue adjustment command such that if you're in service mode and you're
executing one of the color/hue adjustment commands the only color displayed is
the one being adjusted---saves on having to use those color filters. Enter
service mode by pressing "menu 0910". Bugfix for PC/VIDEO level not adjusting
level on DVI input which was in the last few releases but had gone unnoticed.
Bugfix for special case of switching between DVI and analog outputs in
independent output mode when analog output was component.
Production Release 062005 -
Adds EDID support for 1280x1024 DVI input (some PC's won't allow setting a
mode without seeing EDID support for the mode). Fixed 1024x768 DVI input
for VisionDVI (already worked on HDP & ProHDP's). Bugfix for a cropping issue
which occurs under only certain conditions and caused cropping changes on one
memory to effect another memory on the same input--note that if you have this
bug you will likely need to slightly adjust the cropping on the top (and save
it) for one of the memories after applying this update. Bugfix for rare power-up
hang seen in 0530 release that required power cycle to correct
Production Release 053005 -
Big improvements to the color temperature command. For details
to read about it in the
FAQ. A bugfix for 480-720p sources which under certain conditions could result
in an odd vertical tear in the picture. Some improvements to IR command
reception. Menu color is less green. Other minor bugfixes.
Production Release 051105 (replacing 051005)-
Fixed a bug in 051005 which for some configurations caused
black/contrast levels to be shifted slightly, degrading the picture.
Production Release 051005 (replaces 050905)-
fixed a bug for letterbox mode (under some
circumstances screen would roll when set). Fixed a bug on
setting field flip bit when changing inputs. Production Release 050905 (replaces 050305 which had an fpga timing issue)-
Slight precision improvement to video datapath.
Updated timings to analog inputs for 1080i@50 and 720p@50 (incorrectly cropped
some of these sources)--so you may need to readjust input cropping if you have
such a source using menu command IN->CONFIG->ADJ->SIZE->TOPL and BOTR. Bugfix
for intermittent video-slowdown (mostly seen for PAL but some dropped frames
were also seen occasionally with NTSC for some sources due to this bug). Bugfix
for certain configurations usually on SDI inputs where the deinterlacer would
not lock into FILM mode. Extended timing again on IR remote interface to
further help learning remotes. Improved input mode detection for quicker and
more reliable signal acquisition on inputs 3 & 4. Added new contrast test
pattern (find it under MISC->TPAT). Several other minor bugfixes.
Production Release 042505-
rev042205 had several bugs that were unique to
it and are now fixed: DVI inputs with PC levels (colors were off), IR
remote improvement had an issue with learning remotes (this is still being
tested but believed to be fixed now), status display would stay onscreen
much too long.
Production Release 042205-
Contouring improvements (most noticeable for
480p/576p/ and 1080i or when using PC input levels via DVI). IR remote reception
improved. Bugfix for sharpness setting of -1. A couple of bugs were fixed that
could force a user to do a power cycle to resolve. A fix was made for component
analog 1080i output sync compatibility.
Production Release 041205 (replaced 041105)-
Fixes a cropping difference between 0405-0407
and previous versions which made the top & bottom cropping slightly off from
what had been configured for some inputs.
Production Release 040705-
Code performance improvements (can help
deinterlacing processing). Bugfix for auto-indep mode bug where manually
changing memories would be overridden by the auto pal/ntsc feature.
Production Release 040505-
For VisionHDP & VisionProHDP adds
sharpening/softening adjustment for all inputs (located under IN->CONFIG->ADJ->SHARP
). Improved precision in video pipeline for all 3 units. Some portions of 10 bit
datapath added to VisionHDP & VisionProHDP. Bugfix for intermittent issue of
input changing/screen turning green when performing some menu adjustments.
Bugfix for error in analog SD colorspace with component output (most users use
Production Release 032005-
Adds HD capability for 50/60Hz auto memory
switching (this is for auto-independant output mode). Bugfix for HD mode
detection in 031205 release. Slight improvements to 480p/720p/1080i component
input sampling. Fix for cropping right edge for 1080i inputs.
Production Release 031205-
Fix for timing menu--sw rev 0301-0302 made it
difficult to set exact timing & refresh rate. Fix for flashing menus which
occurred for certain output resolutions. Software performance issue fixed which
could have occasional impact on deinterlacing quality. Fix for copy input
command (didn't copy yc delay). Adds direct codes to set deinterlacing
mode to "auto" or "video" (press "menu 81" or "menu 82" respectively).
Production Release 022405- (replaces 022305 which missed the letterbox button
Upgrade to PAL & NTSC deinterlacing. Added
ability to select between auto or video mode options for deinterlacing (menu
location: IN->CONFIG->ADJ->DEINT->MODE). Added ability to flip fields for
interlaced material (under IN->CONFIG->ADJ->DEINT->FIELD). Added DVI output sync
polarity (under OUT->MISC->SYNC). Added Vrate to output timing menu. When
viewing internal test patterns press a number to toggle test pattern title
on/off. Other minor bug fixes.
