DSC260 Software Updating using the 260v107.exe archive. For System Version 1.07 December 6, 1999 New Utility Item for added MIDI functionality and SMAART Software Midi Mode; OFF, PROGRAM, MASTER, THRU, PC PORT The selection of this mode sets what the DSC260 may transmit on it's MIDI OUT socket, and depends on the use of the DSC260 in the system. The possible selections are: OFF The OFF mode prevents MIDI messages being transmitted. PROGRAM The PROG mode enables the unit to transmit only MIDI program changes. MASTER The MASTER mode transmits all control changes to other devices on the same MIDI channel. (For paralleling two DSC260s, for example). THRU The THRU mode allows the DSC260 to pass incoming data on to it's MIDI OUT socket. (As required by the MIDI network used in the Smaart system). PCPORT The PCPORT mode allows the unit to be connected directly to a PC via the RS-232 port. This is the mode required to update the DSC260 software from a PC. Program Memory Version 7.1.99 includes: SR47nnX HLA Sound Power Cinema 5000 Venue Series Array Series DMS-1 The DSC260 incorporates Flash Memory Technology for both the operating system and the sixty program registers. Both of these memory sections can be updated via the RS232 connection. Two software applications are included with this archive that allow updating of two areas of flash memory. The first program, 260OPER.EXE, updates the operating software but does not overwrite program memory locations. The second program, 260SYXLD.EXE, updates the sixty program memory locations. The memory locations can also be updated using a standard MIDI connection. Instructions for updating the memories via MIDI are also included in this document. Connecting the DSC260 unit to an Windows Based-PC The connection is made between the RS232 port on the DSC260 unit and either Com1 or Com2 on the PC using a standard 'null modem' or 'laplink' serial cable. A suitable serial cable can be easily made by connecting 2 male DB-9 connectors as follows: pin 2 --------to-------- pin 3 pin 3 --------to-------- pin 2 pin 7 --------to-------- pin 7 Download updated Operating System software to a DSC260 using 260OPER.EXE Under MS Windows 3.1 or 95, drag the 260_XXX.a21 icon (XXX is the revision number) (or filename in File Manager/Explorer) onto 260OPER.EXE. The loader will ask for the comm port number (1 for Com 1 and 2 for Com 2) and then the midi channel number of the unit. The midi channel number defaults to 0 which will send the message to all midi channels. The loader will also prompt the user for a 'y' to confirm the new software transfer. The unit will display the message 'Running Loader' and the loader displays a percentage sent while the transfer takes place. It should take about 4 minutes as the percentage counts up to 100%. The DSC260 will restart when finished and display JBL DSC-260 B0.12 Updated If the DSC260 is restarted it should display the new application version number: JBL DSC-260 B0.12 AX.XX Download updated Program Information to a DSC260 using 260MIDI.EXE Under MS Windows 3.1 or 95, drag the 260_XXX.SYX icon (or filename in File Manager/Explorer) onto 260SYXLD.EXE. The loader will ask for the comm port number (1 for Com 1 and 2 for Com 2) and then the midi channel number of the unit. The midi channel number defaults to 0 which will send the message to all midi channels. The loader will also prompt the user for a 'y' to confirm the new software transfer. The unit will display the message 'Running Loader' and the loader displays a percentage sent while the transfer takes place. The DSC260 will restart when finished and display JBL DSC-260 B0.12 Updated If the DSC260 is restarted it should display the new application version number: JBL DSC-260 B0.12 AX.XX Download updated Program Information to a DSC260 using MIDI MIDI Sysex files can be "played" into a DSC260 using a MIDI connection via a computer or other sequencer. These System Exclusive messages will update all sixty memory locations, replacing all existing memories with new programs in the file. The Media Player that comes standard with the Windows operating system is an easy choice, but most MIDI file players and sequencers will also work. To load the new programs, confirm that the MIDI cables are connected and the sequencer software is correctly installed. Open the 260_XXX.MID file from the player software and play the file. The receiving DSC260 will show a warning that all programs will be updated and then will allow loading of the new memories. Note: If overwriting of the memory is not desired, immediately press the Minus parameter key on the receiving DSC260 to reject the incoming memory data.
