Hi,

The LOR Support page has been updated with new firmware for the DC-MP3. You will need the latest version of the Hardware Utility to take advantage of the new firmware.

Please read the new MP3-DC user guide before updating the firmware and using the new features.

Hello Dan This is great I got my second controller from the brown truck today, and the new software. This is a good day.
I think some people will be confused by the instruction powering, and the reset.
I think everyone needs to know that it can be powered from the main board.
And you need to press the reset button in order to make the download start.
I received the Runtime Error 68 but I forgot to put my SD card in the R/W drive.

Not a Zip drive as the instructions state.


Thank You
Tim

Wait a mintue, how does this work?

I made my shows and uploaded it to my SD card then tried it and nothing. What do I have to reset. Do I actually have to have the MP3 with me? Or can I bring the chip to the site and put it in?

Will this just timeout and shut off at a specified time, or will it finish its routine?
I set it to shut off in two minutes, so far it has not shut off. But it has a half hour worth of shows on the card.
Thanks:waycool:

"Forget about this, I had the time set to 10:00pm tried it again and it just shut off in two minutes. :D"

Hello Zac

You have to push the reset button on the MP3 card in order for the update to start.

So you would have to be at the site with a laptop. Once you press the download button in the 1.5.8 utility, it will wait until the reset button is pressed.

This is how I understand it, and the way I did it.

My hardware utility says comm 1 is in use and the shows are disabled... The only thing on that port is the MP3 and I have tried refreashing w/o it on and still says its in use.

Ideas?

Ok I figured out my problem... I am just tired. Although now it is still stuck on the "grabbing unit" point and the E led is flashing while the P is steady.

Thoughts?

Were you able to update the DC-MP3 controller?

I updated the DC-MP3 player with only the main controller connected, nothing daisy chained. Not sure if that makes a difference or not, but it worked for me.

Hi Guys,

Probably operator error but I am constantly getting the Run Time Error 68 when I try to create a show, using HW version 1.5.8, causing the Hardware utility to abort. Firmware has been updated on the DC-MP3 and I'm seeing the chase sequence. There is no ZIP drive on my computer and the SD card is plugged in to the R/W port. Any clues???

Regards,

davidt

Tim,

I have the DCMP3 connected to the computer and nothing else.

I also have it hooked up to power, that is why I know it is not getting a signal, and the E light is flashing. I think it is my serial connector as I have tried several Cat5E cables...

Any chance I could hook it up through my internet port on my comp?

Problem solved here... THe Hardware Utility was expecting to see a Floppy Disk (remember those old things) in Drive "A". I (just) managed to find an old one and once it found a disk it was happy to continue.

Now to test a show...

I know it can't be connected to the internet port unfortunately!

Let me try that on mine and see what happens.

I will get back to you soon.

I cant do this, my DC-MP3 is in the box and gets it power from the box. If I dissconect the wire to the board I loose power. I dont have an external power supply.

Do you have a controller there so you can check your connection?
