MC 24/48 Version 1.03

APPENDIX A: Maintenance and Customer Service
Upgrading Software
The MC 24/48 console has the ability to have new versions of softwareloaded into it from floppy disk, like upgrading software on a personal computer. The disk must be an MC 24/48 Operating System disk in order for the procedure to function correctly. Your console was shipped with an Operating System disk that has a copy of the original software version that was loaded in it when it was tested at the factory. The entire upgrade procedure takes less than a half-hour, butit is recommended that you do the upgrade on a day that does not require use of the console.


HINT: The upgrade procedure can take 15 minutes or more, and involves turning off
power to the console. Therefore, the upgrade should be done when the console is not being used to control lights.

You may follow the same procedure to “downgrade” to an earlier version of software, if you wish.Any show files that you have saved on disk from earlier software versions will still work with later versions of software, although they will not contain any information for the new features in the newer software. Shows that are recorded on a later version of software may not be compatible with earlier versions of software, however.


BASIC RULE: Show files are “ upward compatible”for newsoftware, but not “ downward
compatible”for old versions of software.

To initiate a software upgrade, simply turn off the console and insert the MC 24/48 System disk with the new software on it. Turn on the console and allow it to completely read the new system software from the disk. You must not turn off the console or unplug power from it during this process. The monitor screen will track theprogress of the new software loading. When this process is complete, a message appears that indicates that the upgrade was successful At this point you can verify that you have successfully loaded new software by observing the version number shown at the top of the Setup display.


NOTE: If you should experience a power failure or other problem that causes a
malfunction during the upgradeprocedure, turn the power switch to “ , wait a Off” few seconds, and turn it back to “ . If you cannot restore the console to normal On” functioning, call NSI Corporation Field Service at (800) 864-2502 for further instructions.
