Ri8-D Firmware V3.00 (Previous version)

Important Notice

Please do not use the EEE function (*) of network switches in a Dante network.

Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronization performance and occasional dropouts.

Therefore we strongly recommend that:
  • 1. If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.
  • 2. If you use unmanaged switches, make sure to not use network switches that support the EEE function, since EEE operation cannot be disabled in these switches.
  • * EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is a technology that reduces switch power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.

  • The Dante Firmware Update Manager v1.4.13.2 for Mac does not support Mac OS X 10.6.8. Please use Mac OS X 10.7.5, 10.8.5, 10.9.5 or 10.10. 
    The Dante Firmware Update Manager v1.4.13.2 for Windows does not support Windows XP. Please use Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1.
  • When updating the firmware, follow the instructions described in the “Ri8-D/Ro8-D Firmware Update Guide”.You need to update the Dante firmware if you update the R series firmware to V3.00

Main Revisions and Enhancements

New Features

  • CL/QL-series firmware V3.00 is supported.
  • R Remote V2 is supported.

Improvement

  • When R series starts in REFRESH mode and only R Remote is connected, the orange [SYNC] indicator is turned off and the green [SYNC] indicator is turned on.

Fixed bugs

  • Solved a problem in which the DANTE module rarely malfunctioned and Head Amp control is lost, causing all of the LED indicators on the front panel to blink.
  • Solved a problem in which the message "No Response from I/O DEVICE." or "No Response from External HA." appeared under the following conditions:
    -16 or more R units and Dante-MY16-AUD were in the same Dante network.
    -3 or more R units were each mounted on 4 consoles.

Known issue

  • If Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) is patched to the CL/QL series device using Dante Controller, the patching may not be recalled correctly when the CL/QL series device is restarted. Patch DVS again. In addition, when using a version of DVS for Windows that is older than v3.2.0, the patch after CH41 cannot be performed from CL/QL series consoles.
  • In the owner's manual it is written that the Dante Patch is cleared in REFRESH mode, however the Dante Patch is not cleared in REFRESH mode.

Notice

  • When setting up latency on the Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
  • If the DIP switch REMOTE setting is switched between NATIVE and AD8HR, the device label is set to the default value, and the patch is also cleared.
  • On the CL/QL, the following device labels are used for detecting a SUPPORTED DEVICE.
    Y###-**********
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)
    * indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or
    -(hyphen) may be used) Up to 31 characters including the 'Y' are supported.
    Make sure that the UNIT ID indicated by Y###- is not duplicated by any other R-series unit. (### will be the UNIT ID value).
    However, as an example, a CL/QL series Console ID can have the same ID number as an R-series device.

former version information.

R Series Firmware V2.00

New Features

  • CL-series firmware V2.03 is supported.
  • QL-series firmware V1.07 is supported.
  • The IP SELECT MODE function is assigned to DIP switches 2 and 3 as an IP address setup for remote control. There are three settings: AUTO IP (conventional setup), DHCP, and STATIC IP (192.168.0. "UNIT ID"). When using R REMOTE, set this to AUTO IP.
  • Now supports a latency value of 2.0msec for Dante.

Fixed bugs

  • Solved a problem in which a SECONDARY PORT setting was changed using DIP switch 4, but the setting might not have been changed.
  • Solved a problem in which updating the main firmware of the R series might go wrong. When you update, make sure that the updateV2.exe file is the most recent available.

Known issue

  • If the Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) is patched to the CL/QL series device using Dante Controller, the patching may not be recalled correctly when the CL/QL series device is restarted. Patch DVS again. In addition, when using a version of DVS for Windows that is older than v3.2.0, the patch after CH41 cannot be performed from CL/QL series consoles.
    When updating, perform the update as described in “Ri8-D/Ro8-D Firmware Update Guide.

Notice

  • When setting up latency on the Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
  • If the DIP switch REMOTE setting is switched between NATIVE and AD8HR, the device label is set to the default value, and the patch is also cleared.
  • On the CL/QL, the following device labels are used for detecting a SUPPORTED DEVICE.
    Y###-**********
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)

    -(hyphen) may be used) Up to 31 characters including the 'Y' are supported.
    Make sure that the UNIT ID indicated by Y###- is not duplicated by any other R-series unit. (### will be the UNIT ID value).
    However, as an example, a CL/QL series Console ID can have the same ID number as an R-series device.

  • * If you update the device from the V1.70 firmware, the DANTE firmware need not be updated. To update the MAIN firmware, perform operations of only the section “Updating the Ri/Ro firmware” in the “Ri8-D/Ro8-D Firmware Update Guide.” If you update the device from other than the V1.70 firmware, update the Ri/Ro device by following the guide thoroughly.

R Series Firmware V1.70

  • CL-series firmware V1.70 is supported.

Fixed bugs

  • Solved a problem in which, depending on the duration of a momentary power outage, the analog gain value could change, or the HA could no longer be controlled remotely.

Known issue

  • If the Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) is patched to the CL series device using Dante Controller, the patching may not be recalled correctly when the CL series device is restarted. Patch DVS again. In addition, when using a version of DVS for Windows that is older than v3.2.0, the patch after CH41 cannot be performed from CL series consoles.
    When updating, perform the update as described in “Ri8-D/Ro8-D Firmware Update Guide.

Notice

  • When setting up latency on the Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
  • If the DIP switch REMOTE setting is switched between NATIVE and AD8HR, the device label is set to the default value, and the patch is also cleared.
  • On the CL, the following device labels are used for detecting a SUPPORTED DEVICE.
    Y###-**********
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)
    *indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or -(hyphen) may be used)
    Up to 31 characters including the 'Y' are supported.
    Make sure that the ID indicated by Y###- is not duplicated by any other R-series unit, even if it is a different size. However, as an example, a CL console can have the same ID as an R-series device. (### will be the UNIT ID value).

R Series Firmware V1.60

[Important Notice]
With V1.60 firmware, we found that CL consoles may partially lose HA gain control of R series units after being powered on for a long period of time. We have released the new firmware V1.61 in which the serious problem was fixed, and strongly recommend to update your CL/R series units with V1.61.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

R Firmware V1.51

Fixed bug
  • Solved a problem in which, when the Ri8-D was in the AD8HR mode engaged was mounted on the EXTERNAL HA page of the CL series screen, the +48V Master icons would be shown for four virtual units, instead of the correct one.
Notice
  • When setting up latency on the Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
