Installing 6800+ Modules


Caution
Before installing your modules, see the Maximum 6800+ Frame Power Ratings chart at the beginning of this chapter.

There are different module and connector types that require installation: Double-slot back connectors Front modules

Back connectors for this module come in double-slot size, and are installed in an FR6802+XF frame. The 6800+ front modules connect to the double-slot back connectors. Up to ten front modules can fit in an FR6802+XF if they are connected to double-slot back connectors (two spaces are required to accommodate the extra width of the back connector). You can install most 6800+ modules in any unused slot without interfering with other frame functions.

Installing HMX6800+ Modules


These modules require no specialized installation procedures. However, if installing both front and rear modules, ensure that the back module is installed first before plugging in the front module. See the FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for information about installing and operating an FR6802+ frame and its components. See the 6800+ Safety Instructions and Standards Manual for important information about safely installing your module.

Upgrading HMX6800+ Firmware


Firmware upgrading is a routine procedure that you must perform to install newer versions of software on a HMX6800+ module. The HMX6800+ module can be upgraded in Boot Loader mode only. CCS Pilot, Co-Pilot, or Navigator software version 3.1.1 or later is required for this procedure. The HMX6800+ must be installed in a frame that contains or is connected to another frame that contains an ICE6800+ module. When performing the upgrading procedure, check the appropriate readme file to confirm which files are needed. Use care to ensure that you upload the correct files to the HMX6800+ module. If for some reason the upgrade fails, the module may not respond to controls and will appear to be non-functional. In that event, follow the procedures described in Correcting a Failed Upgrade Procedure on page 20. Follow these steps to upgrade a HMX6800+ modules firmware: 1. Download the most recent appropriate upgrade package from the Leitch Web site or from your CD-ROM. 2. Remove the HMX6800+ module from the 6800+ frame. 3. Set the Hex switch to F.

The selected files path name is displayed in the edit box to the left of the Browse button. The extraction process on the ZIP file is handled as part of the upgrade process. You do not need to extract the files yourself. 11. Press Submit Transfer... A dialog box opens, requesting confirmation that you want to proceed with the request. If you have multiple devices selected, multiple transfer tasks are submittedone per device. The transfer now progresses. You may close the Software Upgrade window, continue with other tasks, or switch to the Progress tab to view the status of the transfers. 12. Click on the Log tab and look at the Progress column to ensure that all files have correctly updated. 13. When the update is complete, reboot the HMX6800+ module by manually pulling it out and then pushing it back into its slot in the frame. You cannot click Reboot Device to reboot HMX6800+ modules.

Note
Closing the Software Upgrade window does not effect any transfer processes that may be running in the background. However, if you try to log off or exit the CCS software while a transfer is underway, a notification window will alert you that processes are still active and will ask if you want to terminate these processes.

Operating Notes
When setting the control parameters on the HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4, observe the following: If you make changes to certain parameters, other related parameters may also be affected. See the section Cross-Functional Parameter Changes on page 33 in this chapter for more information. When you change a parameter, the effect is immediate. However, the module requires up to 20 seconds to save the latest change. After 20 seconds, the new settings are saved and will be restored if the module loses power and must be restarted. When you set the Factory Recall parameter to Yes, the module takes several seconds to reset all of the parameters to their default settings. Leitch recommends that you terminate any unused coaxial output connectors with a 75 terminator.

Audio Processing Information


Audio Embedding Modes
The audio embedder component in the HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4 is composed of several smaller subcomponent blocks: One ancillary data stripper (ADS) Four audio embedding subcomponents

The first subcomponent is an ancillary data stripper (ADS). This block removes all ancillary data packets in the input HD-SDI stream, prior to embedding. Following the ADS block are four separate audio-embedding subcomponents. Each subcomponent has the ability to operate on only one audio group, either appending or overwriting a predetermined group onto the HD-SDI stream. The audio embedding modes are G1EmbMode, G2EmbMode, G3EmbMode and G4EmbMode. Table 3-1 briefly describes the Off, Append, OverWrt and Auto options available from each of the embedding modes. Table 3-1. Embedding Mode Options Options
Off Append

Description
Disables embedding of the selected audio group Attempts to insert the audio data and control packets immediately following the last existing audio data/control packet in the horizontal ancillary region (This setting is valid only if the audio group to be embedded does not already exist. See Figure 3-1 on page 25 and Figure 3-2 on page 26 for more information on Append embedding mode.

OverWrt

Description
Attempts to overwrite existing audio data and control packets of the same group number with the new audio data (This setting is valid only if the audio group to be embedded already exists.) In this setting, if the new sample distribution does not exactly match the existing audio data packet sample distribution, the embedder will mark some audio data packets for deletion (DID word will be set to 180h). To avoid sample distribution issues, enable the ADS Clean feature. See Figure 3-3 on page 27 for more information on OverWrt embedding mode.

Auto

Attempts first to overwrite existing audio data and control packets of the same audio group number; failing that, appends the new audio data and control packets immediately following the last existing audio data/control packet Refer to the G1Exists, G2Exists, G3Exists and G4Exists parameters to determine what audio groups are already present in the incoming HD signal.

Audio Embedding Channel Source Selection


Note
Items marked with an * apply to HMX6800+B4/C4 options only.

On the HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4 modules, the following audio source selections are available for each OutxSrc parameter: AES 1A AES 1B AES 2A AES 2B AES 3A* AES 3B* AES 4A* AES 4B* AES 1 Sum AES 2 Sum AES 3 Sum* AES 4 Sum* Test Tone 1 (750 Hz, -20 dBFS) Test Tone 2 (1.5 kHz, -20 dBFS) Test Tone 3 (3 kHz, -20 dBFS) Test Tone 4 (6 kHz, -20 dBFS)

HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4 Installation and Operation Manual

29

Chapter 3: Operation

If any of the AES input channels are of a Non-PCM format, then a channel summation (AES x Sum) of the channel for any OutxSrc is not a valid selection. For example, if AES 1A or AES 1B (or both) are Non-PCM, then AES 1 SUM is not a valid selection for any OutxSrc parameter. See Non-PCM Processing on page 32 for the handling of Non-PCM input channels.

Input Audio Rate


When embedding audio in PCM mode (OutxxFrmt = PCM or OutxxFrmt = Auto and OutxxFrmFb = PCM), the input audio rate may be from 32 kHz to 96 kHz. This input audio will be sample rate converted to 48 kHz prior to embedding in the HD video signal; as well, the embedder will indicate 48 kHz in the Rate word of the audio control packet for each embedded audio group. When embedding audio in Non-PCM mode (OutxxFrmt = Non-PCM or OutxxFrmt = Auto and OutxxFrmFb = Non-PCM), the input audio rate must be 48 kHz and frequency locked to the source video. In this scenario, the sample rate conversion function is bypassed and the embedder will indicate 48 kHz in the Rate word of the audio control packet for each embedded audio group.

Channel Summing (PCM Processing only)


If you select AES 1 Sum, AES 2 Sum, AES 3 Sum, or AES 4 Sum as the source, the result is the sum of the two parts of the channel divided by two (the mean average). For example, AES 1 Sum = (AES 1A + AES 1B) 2 Therefore, the stereo signal is averaged, creating a monaural signal. See Figure 3-4 on page 31 for an illustration of this process.

Chapter 3: Operation

Non-PCM Processing
Compressed non-PCM audio signals cannot be summed and averaged out. Therefore, if you select one of these options, the sources that appear in the Out01Src to Out16Src parameters are arbitrarily matched odd/even to left/right. Example: AES 1A and AES 1B inputs are of a Non-PCM format, and AES 1 Sum is selected for the Out01Src and Out02Src parameters. Since the Non-PCM channels cannot be summed and averaged, then the output channel assignments are as follows: Out01Src is assigned AES 1A (matched Odd number to Left channel) Out02Src is assigned AES 1B (matched Even number to Right channel)

Note
These parameters are enabled for channels operating in PCM mode.

When channels are operating in Non-PCM mode (for example, compressed audio such as Dolby-E mode), the following parameters are disabled for the associated channel: Gain (forced to 0 dB) Invert (forced to No) Dithering (forced to None) Word Length (forced to 24-bits)

See Cross-Functional Parameter Changes on page 33 for full parameter descriptions. When operating an output channel in Non-PCM mode, the sample rate conversion function of the associated input AES channel is bypassed.

Channel Dithering
When any audio output channel is of a Non-PCM format (Output Chxx Format=Non-PCM or Output Chxx Format=Auto and Out Chxx Format Fb=Non-PCM), the Dithering feature for that channel pair (1-2, 3-4, etc.) is disabled, even if only one channel of the pair is Non-PCM. Both channels in the pair must be of a PCM format for the Dithering feature for that channel pair to be re-enabled. For example, if Output Ch01 Format is set to Non-PCM (or Output Ch01 Format=Auto and Out Ch01 Format Fb=Non-PCM), then output channel pair 01-02 has dithering disabled (Out 01-02 Dithr Mode is set to None and the parameter is disabled), even if Output Ch02 Format is PCM. If both Output Ch01 Format and Output Ch02 Format are changed to PCM, then the Out 01-02 Dithr Mode parameter is re-enabled.

Channel Word Length


When any audio output channel is of a Non-PCM format, the Word Length feature for that channel pair is forced to 24-bits and the parameter is disabled, even if only one channel of the pair is Non-PCM. Both channels in the pair must be of a PCM format for the Word Length feature for that channel pair to be re-enabled. For example, if Output Ch01 Format is set to Non-PCM, then the Out Ch01-02 Word Len parameter is set to 24 bits and that parameter is disabled, even if Output Ch02 Format is PCM. If both Output Ch01 Format and Output Ch02 Format are changed to PCM (or Auto, and the associated feedback parameters are PCM), then the Out Ch01-02 Word Len parameter is re-enabled.

Channel Fade Rate


The channel fade rate is a single control for all output channels. This feature is only applied to output channels operating in PCM format. It is automatically disabled for individual output channels operating in Non-PCM format.

See Table 3-7 on page 41 and Table 3-9 on page 54 to view the various banks, hex switch positions, and corresponding parameter options and values. 3. Rotate the hex switch to the parameter number (1 to 9) or letter (A to F) of the option you want to set.

Note
Leitch recommends that you use the available 6800+ software control options (serial/local or Ethernet/remote) to aid in viewing, setting, and confirming parameter values.

4. Toggle the navigation switch to select and set the value of the chosen parameter. 5. Rotate the hex switch to another parameter number/letter in the current bank, and then repeat step 4. or Rotate the hex switch to 0 again to select a different bank, and then repeat steps 3 and 4.

Recalling Default Parameter Settings


Table 3-7 "Parameter OptionsHMX6800+B2/C2 Module Versions" and Table 3-9 "Parameter OptionsHMX6800+B4/C4 Module Versions" describe all of the parameter settings for the HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4 modules, including the original factory defaults. To return this module to its default settings, you can either reset each parameter individually or do a global recall following this procedure: 1. Rotate the hex switch to 0. 2. Toggle the navigation switch to the bank number 0. Use the control LEDs to verify which bank you have selected, or use an available 6800+ software control option (serial/local or Ethernet/remote) to aid in confirming your bank selection. 3. Rotate the hex switch to the global recall parameter F. 4. Toggle the navigation switch to On. Use an available 6800+ software control option to aid in viewing, setting, and confirming the parameter value.

Reading Software and Hardware Versions


The current software and hardware version of your HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4 module can only be viewed using a CCS-enabled control panel or a CCS software application, such as Pilot or +Pilot Lite. See your LCP-3901-1U and RCP-CCS-1U Local and Remote Control Panel Installation and Operation Manual, CCS software application user manual, or CCS software application online help for information on viewing software and hardware version numbers.

Module Status LEDs


The HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4 modules do not have dedicated card-edge alarms. Instead, module status LEDs on the corner of the module light up if an error is detected. See Figure 3-5 on page 70 for the location of these LEDs, and Table 3-12 below for a definition of the LED colors. Alarms are usually logged and monitored within available software control applications (for example, +Pilot Lite or Pilot). See the appropriate software control user manual or online help for more information. Table 3-12. Module Status LED Descriptions LED Color Sequence
Off Green Red Flashing red Amber

Note
If the LED is flashing red, please contact your Leitch customer service representative.

Meaning
There is no power to the module; the module is not operational. There is power to the module; the module is operating properly. There is an alarm condition. The module has detected a hardware/firmware fault. The module is undergoing configuration.

Software Communication and Control Issues


+ + Pilot Lite Fails to Communicate with Installed Modules on page 89 + Pilot Lite Does Not Find All Modules in Frame on page 91 + Pilot Lite or CCS Software Application Not Responding on page 91 + Pilot Lite Cannot Control a Module Showing in the Control Window on page 91 + Pilot Lite Status Bar Reports Not Ready on page 91 CCS Software Application or Remote Control Panel Does Not Communicate with Module on page 92 Alarm Query Fails When a Device Reboots on page 92

Pilot Lite Fails to Communicate with Installed Modules


Confirm that the following items are not the reason for the communication failure: The proper module slot has not been specified (+ Pilot Lite is not communicating with the appropriate slot). See your FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for more information on slot identification. The COM port is used elsewhere (Check that the correct COM port is configured in + Pilot Lite and that another application is not using that COM port). The actual frame ID does not match the two DIP switch settings in the back of the frame (+ Pilot Lite is not communicating with the proper frame). See your FR6802+ Frame Installation and Operation Manual for more information on frame ID switch settings. A null modem cable is not being used. Between the PC running + Pilot Lite and the FR6802+ frame, there should be a null RS-232 modem cable. At minimum, this requires that pins 2 and 3 are crossed and 5 to 5 for ground. An ICE6800+ module is installed in the frame (+ Pilot Lite control is disabled if an ICE6800+ module is installed in the frame; ICE6800+ modules are used for CCS control).

Appendix B: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips

A legacy 6800 series product is in the frame. To communicate with + Pilot Lite, modules must be from the 6800+ product family. + Pilot Lite cannot communicate with legacy 6800 series products. Although they can be installed in a FR6802+ frame and work using card edge controls, 6800 series cards cannot be discovered or controlled by + Pilot Lite.

The back module has bent pins. To determine if the module has bent pins, follow this procedure: a. Unplug the front module. b. Unscrew and remove the back module. c. View the 20-pin spring connector at the bottom of the back module. See Figure B-1.

20-Pin Connector

Figure B-1. Connector on 6800+ Back Module This connector should not have any bent or pressed pins. Even a slightly depressed or bent pin may cause genlock issues. d. If there are bent pins, carefully re-position them to their correct positions. If this is not possible, then a back module can be exchanged from Leitch.

Appendix B: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips

Pilot Lite Does Not Find All Modules in Frame


If a discovery is started too soon after frame power-up, + Pilot Lite will not find all the installed modules. Refresh + Pilot Lite (File > Refresh), and ensure that installed modules are fully powered-up before discovery. If a module is plugged into the frame after a discovery, + Pilot Lite will not automatically detect the module. Refresh + Pilot Lite (File > Refresh) to discover the newly installed module. If a legacy 6800 series product is in the frame, + Pilot Lite will not detect it. + Pilot Lite cannot communicate with legacy 6800 series products. Although they can be installed in the FR6802+ frame and work using card edge controls, they will not be discovered or controlled by + Pilot Lite. For + Pilot Lite to find a module, it must be from the 6800+ product family.

Pilot Lite or CCS Software Application Not Responding


+ Pilot Lite and a CCS application such as Navigator or Pilot cannot run on the same PC at the same time. Both applications can be installed, but only one can be opened at a time.

Pilot Lite Cannot Control a Module Showing in the Control Window


There are three possible causes for this problem: Did you physically set the jumper for local control? If so, set this jumper to the REM position for remote control. Does the card name in the control window physically match the card type in the frame? Is the module properly seated in the frame? Check the positioning of the module in its slot in the frame. Does the Control window indicate the device is ready? The device may be powered off or disconnected from the network.

Pilot Lite Status Bar Reports Not Ready


+ Pilot Lite reports each devices connection status in the status bar. If the connection status message reads Not Ready, check the following:

HMX6800+B2/C2 and HMX6800+B4/C4 Installation and Operation Manual

91

Appendix B: Communication and Control Troubleshooting Tips

The position of the module -- it may not be properly seated in the frame. The frames network connection.

If the status bar still reports no status or Not Ready for the frame or device, try restarting + Pilot Lite.

CCS Software Application or Remote Control Panel Does Not Communicate with Module
CCS software applications (such as Pilot, CoPilot, and Navigator) and remote control panels require the purchase and installation of an ICE6800+ module in an FR6802+ frame in order to communicate remotely via Ethernet.

Alarm Query Fails When a Device Reboots


When you reboot a device connected to your PC, the alarm traffic hitting the network may cause an alarm query request to time out and fail. While the query does not automatically retry, it will post an Alarm query failed message to the Diagnostics window. To clear an Alarm query failed message, right-click inside the Diagnostics window, and then select Refresh from the resulting context menu.

Frames Fail to Communicate with the PC after a Power Failure


You must exit the software and restart after the frame recovers from its power failure. To restore communications between the PC and the frames, ensure that the frames have three or more minutes to recover from the power failure before you exit the application and restart the PC.

Module Does Not Seem to Work


Although the following troubleshooting tips may seem obvious, please take the time to ensure the following: All appropriate rear connections are securely made The board is securely installed (with no bent pins) The frame is turned on
