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

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

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. 

Program files included with this archive are:

SR47nnX
HLA
Cinema 5000
Sound Power
Venue Series
Array Series
DMS-1
