Hey guys, rented an M2GO in Sydney for a 2 show run, I have about 3 hours to doors, but my console needs a firmware update to run my showfile.
With the software downloaded and ready, how long does this typically take?
Would it be better to put the Mseries sofware on my laptop and try to run in USB mode?
The console also has an old fixture library that doesnt seem to want to update... not sure why this is.

Hello,

Most likely too late now but:

1. Firmware update does not require a console software update
2. If your show has been save on a newer software version, then indeed you must upgrade the console to that newer version
3. Depending on how far the 2 versions are, you may need a full OS update on that M2GO
4. A software update is easy, and takes about 10-15 minutes on an M2GO.
5. A full OS update will take about 1.5 Hr, and will wipe all all contents of the M2GO HD
6. After that OS update, you will still to perform a Firmware update.

None of the above is recommended in a live show, pre-show environment

Your best shot is updating M-PC, if you have the additional HW (e.g. USB-DMX box), to run your show

Thanks for your reply Ofer! I ended up programming a new show from scatch, and transfering it to the stable machine (2nd one) when it arrived 15 before doors... luckily its a 2 show stop, so tonite Im back in a happy place :)
