Bug Fixes: 
  • None
Known Issues: 
  • FUM-92: Firmware Update Manager cannot restore all devices in a heterogeneous mix of Ultimo-class devices in failsafe. Workaround: Connect & restore Ultimo devices individually.
  • #7993 - Installing Firmware Update Manager while DVS is running can cause DVS audio dropouts.
  • #7996 - Restoring devices from failsafe while DVS is running can cause DVS audio dropouts.
  • PCS-2392: If you happen to have a Dante-MY16-AUD card that contains firmware later than v3.4.0 but earlier than v3.7.2, Firmware Update Manager correctly informs you to upgrade to v3.7.2.2 before continuing.  But when you try to do that, Firmware Update Manager does not let you tick the box selecting the device you want to upgrade. Workaround: Click the Select All button, then untick any MY16 cards you don’t want / downgraded to v3.7.2.2.


Audinate’s Support for Inclusive Language

To our customers: some of the terminology used in Dante products has been changed to align with modern usage. Specifically, areas related to Dante clocking now refer to “Primary Leader Clock”, “Leader Clocks” and “Follower Clocks” to describe the functions of each role more clearly.
