This notice applies to DMX Input devices with PCB version 1.00.

When using VisualDMX 1.46 or later, it is strongly advised to, if neccesary, upgrade your DMX Input's firmware to v1.03.

How to check your device's firmware
When connected to VisualDMX, go to the Options windows (accessible via 'Tools' menu) and open the 'DMX Hardware' tab. This screen will indicate the connected devices with their PCB and firmware versions.

How to upgrade the firmware
For this specific device, the firmware is upgraded by conducting the following steps:
1. Exit VisualDMX and disconnect any DMX Input
2. go to the following directory 'c:\Windows\System32\Drivers'
3. if the date of the file 'inputldr.sys' is older than 31-1-2006 it needs replacing.
4. replace the file by the one located in '\Program Files\Visual Productions\VisualDMX\Drivers'
5. Connect the DMX Input and start VisualDMX. Check the firmware again to verify the new version.
