Important

  • ULX-D 2.X firmware versions are incompatible with ULX-D or QLX-D 1.X firmware versions. To ensure all receivers and transmitters in a configuration function with each other, update all devices to the same firmware version.

Improvements

  • NEW TCPI commands for ULXD4/ULXD4D/ULXD4Q:
    • MODEL - Name of the receiver model
    • TX_FW - Firmware version of the received transmitter
  • Support added for new ULXD4D/Q devices which ensure that encryption is used
    • At this time, AXT600 Spectrum Manager does not support always encryption DCID

Notes

  • User Guide
  • If your ULXD4D/Q is on version 1.3.6 or older, first upgrade to version 1.4.8 before upgrading to the latest version of ULX-D. Because version 1.4.8 is no longer available on Shure Update Utility, you will need to download the firmware from Shure's Firmware Archive. Follow these steps:
    1. Download Shure Update Utility
    2. Download ULXD4D version 1.4.8 or ULXD4Q version 1.4.8 to your computer and copy the .pack file to Documents > Shure > Firmware
    3. Launch Shure Update Utility, connect your devices to your computer, and follow SUU instructions on uploading new firmware to devices.
  • ULXD1/2 transmitters used with receivers must be updated via IR sync. After a receiver is updated, follow these steps:
    1. Go to the receiver menu: DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE
    2. Align the infrared ports with the transmitter
    3. Press ENTER
  • Maintain an IR connection when updating transmitter firmware via IR sync. In rare occasions, upgrades from 1.5.6 or earlier to 1.6.6 or later can cause transmitters to become non-responsive temporarily. If the update fails and the unit is non-responsive, resolve the issue by following these steps:
    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 later).
    2. Update the transmitter firmware to 1.6.6 or later via IR menu. From the receiver menu: DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE. Align the infrared ports with the transmitter and then press ENTER.
    3. Upgrade receiver to 1.6.6 or later.

    2. Update the transmitter firmware to 1.6.6 or the latest version via IR menu. From the receiver menu: DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE. Align the infrared ports with the transmitter and then press ENTER.
    3. Upgrade receiver to 1.6.6 or latest version.

NEW FEATURES

  • 900MHz ISM Site Survey via Wireless Workbench (WWB) for X52, X53, and X54 frequency bands.
  • WWB Site Survey (902 - 928 MHz) Utility, which utilizes ISM-band devices to capture long-term scans and generates processed scan data, tailored specifically for coordination in this spectrum. Access this utility by selecting TOOLS > SITE SURVEY (902 - 928 MHz).
    • This utility is designed to use an ISM-band Shure receiver to assess whether a particular venue is well suited for ISM-band operation of fixed frequency microphone systems.
    • This utility includes the “Usability Report”, which runs sample calculations and reports an approximate number of usable channels in the ISM band.
    • For more information, consult the Wireless Workbench 6 Help System in version 6.11.2 or later.

IMPROVEMENTS

  • Added new frequency bands:
    • Americas (except Brazil): X52: 902-928 MHz
    • Brazil: X53: 902-907.5, 915-928 MHz
    • Australia: X54: 915-928 MHz

NOTES

  • Transmitters to be used with receivers must be updated via IR. After the receiver is updated, follow these steps:
    1. Go to the receiver menu: DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE
    2. Align the infrared ports with the transmitter
    3. Press ENTER.
  • 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 1.6.7 or later to cause transmitters to temporarily become non-responsive. If the update fails and the unit is non-responsive, resolve the issue by following these steps:
    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 (1.6.7 or latest version).
    2. Update the transmitter firmware to 1.6.7 or the latest version via IR menu. From the receiver menu: DEVICE UTILITIES > TX FW UPDATE. Align the infrared ports with the transmitter and then press ENTER.
    3. Upgrade receiver to 1.6.7 or latest version.
