I updated the firmware of my NX1 per the instructions on the " ONYX 4.10 Downloads" page and then updated the operating system to 4.10. Upon starting the NX1, I saw the message “Old firmware detected.” Did I mess up somehow?

When I open the firmware update tool, it reads, “PCB firmware update (V4.10.1263.0)”. Under “USB Devices”, it shows three items:

E10B NX1 NX-P Playback v04.38 DIPS:0
E1A9 NX DMX2 Card 2IN/OUT v04.11 DIPS:78
E1A9 NX DMX2 Card 2IN/OUT v04.11 DIPS:78

Hi @AussieDave

If you are now running 4.10 OS then you did everything correctly.

The BIOS update is different than the firmware update. It looks like your Playback is running a slightly old firmware, 4.38 vs 4.40.

From the firmware update tool you can select the E10B NX1 NX-P Playback v04.38 DIPS:0 device press “Update USB Firmware” navigate to the NX1 folder and select the “(E10B) (E10C) NX1 NXP Playback (V4.40) USB.C2” file, press ok and follow the instructions on screen.

Thanks, Matthew. That appears to have solved the problem.

The latest version does not work on the NX4.
The installation of 4.10 is ok but the console restarts with the previous version…

Please install the full OS found on the download page.

In the Menu- DMX custom names of the (USB device) M-DMX showed up blacked out when I connected them. Of course, it was a simple fix to edit the name. Then the name showed again.

Same here, even with the Full OS.
Tried multiple USB-sticks and Ports
