ULXD1-2 Firmware Release Notes For the ULX-D ULXD1-2 Transmitters

Version 1.6.6

Release Date: 2/4/2015

Notes

  • When updating Transmitter firmware via IR sync, please use caution to not lose IR connection, as it’s possible in rare occasions for upgrades from 1.5.6 or earlier to 1.6.6 or later to cause transmitters to temporarily become non-responsive.  If the update fails and the unit is non-responsive, please follow the steps below to resolve the issue:
    1. Using the Shure Update Utility, downgrade the firmware for the ULXD4/ULXD4D/ULXD4Q Receiver to 1.5.6 AND keep the desired Transmitter firmware (1.6.6 or latest version).
    2. Update the transmitter firmware to 1.6.6 or the latest version via IR menu on the receiver by selecting Device Utilities > TX FW Update and aligning the infrared ports with the transmitter before selecting ‘ENTER’.
    3. Upgrade receiver to 1.6.6 or latest version.
  • For operation of ULX-D devices with other Shure networked systems, see the following list of minimum firmware versions that are supported with ULX-D version 1.6.6:
