Rio3224-D2 Firmware V1.10

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 switching power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.

Caution when updating

Update the firmware in accordance with the “R Series Firmware Update Guide” and the “R Remote User Guide.” In addition, Dante firmware is also updated via the R Remote software.

CL/QL/RIVAGE/R/Tio Series Editor/Firmware/R Remote Compatibility

Please make sure to use appropriate version of CL Editor or QL Editor which is compatible with your console firmware in reference to the following compatibility chart. Using an unsupported Editor/firmware combination may result in unexpected behavior.
The Firmware Set is a set of main (and sub) firmware of the device and the Dante firmware. The version of Firmware Set is the same as the version of the main firmware. Refer to the release note of each firmware about the details of the Firmware Set.

Main Revisions and Enhancements

New features in V1.10

  • Now supports Dante Domain Manager.
  • Now supports remote control from RIVAGE PM10/PM7, CL, and QL.
    Make sure to use RIVAGE PM10/PM7 V2.02/CL V4.5/QL V4.5 or later.


  • You can remotely control one Rio3224-D2/Rio1608-D2 unit from a maximum of five computers operating R Remote. You can also remotely control from four separate CL/QL units.
  • 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.
    # 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, or any other Rio3224-D2/Rio1608-D2. (### indicates 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.
