Outdated: T1 Firmware v 1.6 Release

We are pleased to announce new firmware version 1.6 for the T1 ToneMatch® audio engine. It is highly recommended that you update your T1 as it contains important updates that will allow you to get the most out of your system.

Below is a list of improvements included in firmware version 1.6:

Fixes:

1.Blue Screen Outage - FIX
We’ve identified and fixed a problem in the Tuner which contributed to the small number of audio drop outs or “Blue Screen Issues” some of you may have experienced. Thank you to everyone that helped us identify this issue, we appreciate your patience and support.

2.Firmware update architecture - FIX
This update fixes an issue that would allow a T1 or model II power stand to be double updated and potentially damaged.

The T1 or model II power stand will now ignore the double update request. Enhancements have also been made to the L1® updater v. 1.1 for PC and L1® updater v. 1.0 for Mac that prevents the user from being prompted to retry the update. A message will now appear asking the customer to power cycle their T1 before attempting the update again.


Enhancements:

1.Windows Vista Compatibility
The T1 can now be detected as an audio device when connected via USB to a PC that is using the Windows Vista operating system. This provides users the ability to use the T1 as an input device/soundcard with their favorite audio recording program.

2.Para EQ Range
The Para EQ range has been increased from 8k to 16k to provide more flexibility for more demanding applications. As an added convenience the name of the musical note associated with the frequency now appears on the display of the T1.

3.USB audio metering and streaming
USB audio is now reflected in the channel 4/5 input metering under the Preferences menu only. The Trim LED for channel 4/5 will no longer track USB input levels.

4.USB AUX Tap addition
USB is now available on channel 4/5 dry AUX tap.

Update: This firmware version has been replaced by DSP Firmware version 1.7 (please click here for more information)
Original Post
If you are using a PC and have previously used version 1.0 of the Software Updater I strongly recommend that you install this new version of the Software Updater before updating the firmware above.

Here is Neil's announcement and a link.

Hey Neil,

Just confirming for all who might want to know...

We do *NOT* need to install firmware version 1.3 before installing this new one, 1.6. is that correct?

In other words we only need 1.6?



Related question about the Model II Power Stand firmware version 1.3. We *don't* need to install firmware version 1.1 first do we?

I downloaded everything pertaining to a MS PC and updated the following:
1. The L1 Updater v1.1 on my Vista computer - successful.
2. The T1 updates to v1.6 - successful
3. The L1 updates to v1.3 - successful.

Everything has updated and is now working well with my MS Vista based computer playing tracks though the T1 USB interface.

I will try recording through it next.

So far everything is terrific.

Bose support thank you very much.

The timing could not be better.

Today I ordered my new HP tx2000 touch screen tablet computer, with MS Vista.

I will now be able to run my complete show, by tapping the screen for Backing tracks and the Lighting effects by DMX control, through my new tablet computer.

Pictures and updates on this project to follow around 03/12/08.

ST,

You are correct, all someone needs to do is download and install the new firmware.

Thanks Neil
First, thanks so much for the Mac version of the Updater, it worked flawlessly. Secondly, after the T1 is updated to 1.6, and the L1 to 1.3, is there anything else that needs updating? In other words, do these two updates include everything that brings it all up to date? Thanks so much.
Thanks so much ST, and no sir, not yet on my friend, but he's calling! I think I've shared with you he ain't going near a computer! I kinda put him off because of company etc., but I'll get him first of the week. I kinda slid on him by saying hey, let me see if mine blows up first! And he thought that was good going into the weekend of gigs.

Thank y'all so much for the good work you do, and again especially for this Mac version of the Updater. I just love this system! It still amazes me how it "fills the room" with music, still everybody can visit, nobody is blown out, yet nobody is left out. Just amazing. And that's not even considering how easy it is to put up, take down and haul. Thanks so much. God bless.

I'm glad you are there to help your friend. I have updated several systems with my Mac (yes, I have one of those too), and everything is fine.

All the best.
One issue I've had on the Mac is that when I download the .bos files, the Mac adds .txt after the .bos Hopefully it's ok to remove the .txt manually after download, because that's what I've done and it's updating now, so we'll see. Any idea why it adds the .txt? Can this be avoided?

That sounds okay.

What version of OS X are you using?

What browser?
ST, everything is OK now as I said on the other post. I'm using Safari with OSX (the animal name before the latest version). We MAC users are sometimes picky and don't expect to have to delete the .txt from the end. This is probably the fault of the browser, but in the browsers' defense, it's simply trying to be helpful in other situations.
Hi djazz,

I'm glad everything is working okay. I too am running OSX but it's 10.5.2 with Safari. It didn't add the .txt extension to the file name.

Maybe it's just Tiger that wants to do that.

Anyway, if it's working now, it's all good. And thanks for sharing your experience with it.

djazz,

Your browser has a setting somewhere where you've asked it to assume that any file it can't recognize is a text file. So, it adds the extension. Hopefully, it doesn't throw away any bits, so you can delete the ".txt" extension and go about your merry way.
