UDM-0808-SIG Firmware v0.70

Last Updated: Jan 09, 2019

UDM-0808-SIG

Prerequisites

  • UDM-RX02N firmware v 1.46
  • When downloading kit files from NetLinx Studio:
    • Within the "Send to NetLinx Device" dialog box please check the "Reboot Device" check box before proceeding with a KIT file download to UDM devices.

Upgrading from v0.55 to v0.70:

Files Required:

SW1402_ONE_v0.6x.kit - must be applied to a version 0.55 hub first

SW1402_KIT_TRANSITION.kit - must be applied to a hub that has had the SW1402_ONE_v0.6x applied

SW1402_KIT_v0_70.kit - complete KIT for this build of UDM-0808

WARNING: DO NOT perform steps 1,2,3 out of order, that may cause unit to become unresponsive and require service.

  • Step 1: Download SW1402_ONE_v0_6x.kit. After reboot the UDM should be ready for next transfer after ~1:30. Version will show as 0.60 in the Netlinx Studio Online Tree.
  • Step 2: Download SW1402_KIT_TRANSITION.kit. After reboot the UDM should be ready for next transfer after ~1:30. Version will show as 0.60 in the Netlinx Studio Online Tree.
  • Step 2: Download SW1402_KIT_TRANSITION.kit. After reboot the UDM should be ready for next transfer after ~1:30. Version will show as 0.60 in the Netlinx Studio Online Tree.
  • Step 3: Download SW1402_KIT_v0_70.kit. After reboot the UDM controller transfers various files to the hub components, this will take ~12 minutes.
    • ~35 to 45 seconds after reboot, telnet into the UDM-0808-SIG to monitor the firmware transfer progress.
    • To turn on diagnostic messages, type:
    • MSG ON<enter>
    • The last item transferred will show as:
      • (0000708830) UDM-0808 - firmware update (FWID 217) on device 9
      • (0000714354) UDM-0808 - 1024 of 1072
    • The hub will be reboot itself after the final transfer completes.

WARNING: DO NOT attempt to transfer the SW1402_ONE_v0_6x.kit to the UDM Hub after it has been upgraded to v0.68 or higher, that may cause unit to become unresponsive and require service.

Upgrading from v0.68 or higher to v0.70:

    • The hub will be reboot itself after the final transfer completes.

New for this release:

  • Hub now shows Master/Slave status via Online Tree in NetLinx Studio, Show Device and Show System in terminal, and DEVICE_INFO() in code.
  • Other IR Modes added:
    • RPRC05 (same functionality as RPAMX)
    • RPRC02 (same functionality as RPENDELEO)
    • RPMIOR1 (previously undocumented)
    • RPAMX and RPENDELEO are still supported, but are somewhat confusing because of the labeling on the remotes
    • RPMIOR1 maps the MIO SNAPI channels to endeleo remote channels for compatibility with other endeleo remotes
  • Added support for receive of all 255 AMX IR codes by the RXO2N. This is enabled via the new 'MIO' receive mode set via the 'RP' command.
    • Example: SEND_COMMAND dvRX, "'RPMIO'"
    • Configures the Rx to use the standard AMX IR codes.
  • Note: Avoid using toggling functions when using the RX as an IR receiver. Due to limitations in the RX communications, holding a button results in multiple pushes and releases instead of a push/hold/release.
  • Improved RX02N detection and online handling.
  • Serial handling (RS232 from and to RX02Ns) has been much improved. Notably, fixed RS232 transmit strings losing characters if they started with "$02" and ended with "$03".
  • UDM-0808 can now connect to masters with ICSP security enabled.
  • Firmware IDs corrected and updated.
  • Added EDID support. The VGA input ports now provide a default EDID to the attached host, currently using the same EDID as the TPI-PRO.
  • UDM-0808 commands added:
    • ?C - return connections for audio and video
    • ?V - return video connections
    • ?A - return audio connections
    • ?MM - show master mode status
    • ?RPU - show 'restore on power up' flag status
    • RESETFACTORY - resets compensation, input types, and web page settings to factory defaults
  • Restore on power up is now the default (RPUON)
  • A web page has been added which provides a rudimentary control method if there is no master connection. The web page is labeled 'Control' on the Admin tab of the web pages and allows commands to be directly entered and replies (notifications) to be displayed for the UDM-0808 hub and RX02Ns.
    • Use Accept button to send commands.
    • Use Refresh button to get new replies.
    • New replies are added to the bottom of the list.
    • Use Clear button to clear replies.
  • Fixed ipSettings.xml web page will not load if network has no domain suffix.
  • Fixed audio loss problem on port 1

Known Issues:

  • If firmware transfer hangs on device 1 for more than a minute or two, reboot the UDM-0808. Transfer will resume after reboot.
  • Sending the SW1402_ONE_v0_6x.kit or original SW1402_KIT_v0_55.kit to a v0.68 or higher hub may cause the unit to become unresponsive and require service.
  • Do not mix old firmware RX02Ns with new firmware 0808s, or vice versa. This will result in poor communication between the RX and the hub. Update the RX02Ns to match the 0808 to which they are connected.
  • ICSP password may have to be reentered if 0808 reboots.
  • There are some problems with IE 8 browser compatibility - use IE7 compatibility with this browser
  • Audio pop and noise when doing FW upgrade.
  • Audio "pops" with control when Digital Audio is used
  • Brightness, Sharpness, and Skew levels don't update when updated via their respective commands.
