DXLink Fiber Transmitter Firmware v1.2.12

Last Updated: Sep 28, 2018

DXF-TX-MMD
DXF-TX-MMS
DXF-TX-SMD
DXF-TX-SMS

Changes in this release:
Fixed an issue where a Tx without connection to an AMX master, would require a power cycle after a period of approximately 3 months.

Known Issues

  • Analog processing can fail for certain CVR1960H and 576i50 formats.
  • Composite video can display a thin white stripe at right edge of image.
  • Local Output can flicker occassionally with 1600x1200 format.

Prerequisites:

  • DXF-RX-xxD v1.2.1 (or later) to support standalone behavior.
  • Enova DGX enclosures will need Enova DGX 8/16/32 FW V2.0.0.x (or later) And correct Master FW:
    • SW1058_Master_v4_2_394.KIT (NI-Series) Shows in Online Tree as "NI Master"
    • SW1060_Master_v1_2_312.KIT (NX-Series) Shows in Online Tree as "DGX Master"
  • NetLinx Studio v4.0
  • DGX Configuration Software v1.0.6 or later

Notable Points:

  • On duplex devices, if DIP switch 4 is set ON, the device will be put into unidirectional mode. This will make the duplex device act similarly to a simplex device. Ethernet and control over the fiber link will be disabled. See the instruction manual for details.
  • Please read the documentation in regard to the DIP switches located on the bottom of the Tx/Rx modules before attempting to connect to the network.
  • The TX module uses these solid color screen indications:
    • RED: Indicates an HDCP authentication failure with the HDMI sink (monitor or other device) connected to the local output.

Programming Information

  • No special notes for programming the firmware.
