Before you use the PM1D
system
PM1D system contains software that allows the CS1D/DSP1D(EX)/AI8/AO8/DIO8 (subsequently referred to as “the
components”) to operate independently. Thus, all software must
be updated to the same version to ensure consistency. If you fail
to perform this step, the CS1D’s version checking function will
detect the inconsistency, and the system will not start up
correctly.
Once you have updated the entire system to the same version,
subsequent updates are not necessary. However if you add a new
unit or update, you must once again update the entire system.
• After updating the system, you must execute
INITIALIZE ALL MEMORIES. If you fail to perform the
initialization, operation is not guaranteed.
System Requirements
The following system is required in order to perform the update.
• An IBM PC/AT compatible computer with a Pentium II
233 MHz processor and 64 MB of memory or better.
(Pentium II 350 MHz and 128 MB of memory is
recommended.)
NOTE:
• Depending on your hardware or OS, system requirements may be
greater than listed above.
• If you are using a notebook computer, system requirements may
be greater than listed above as the minimum. Also,
communication may become unstable due to the power
management settings in the Windows Control Panel, or due to
power management settings specific to notebook CPUs (e.g.,
SpeedStep (Intel Corporation), PowerNow! (AMD Corporation),
or LongRun (Transmeta Corporation)). Please disable these
power management settings and use your computer with its power
supply adaptor connected.

System update procedure
When updating the system, you must perform the update and
installation for all components. Using the procedure described
below, perform the firmware update and the CS1D screen
software update.
Before you start the procedure below, download the update file
named “pm1d_system***.zip (“***” stands for a version
number)” from the Yamaha website and expand the file.
http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/downloads/index.html
Scene data etc. that you created using this system must be
backed up on a memory card before you perform the update.
The internal data will be lost when you perform the update
procedure.
For details on how to save data to a memory card, refer to
the Reference Manual (Software).

updating the PM1D Version 2 system software. If the update
operation is interrupted, turn off the power to each
component, wait at least five seconds, turn on the power to
the components, then restart the update operation.
1. Updating the firmware (CS1D/
DSP1D(-EX)/AI8/AO8/DIO8)
You will use the PM1DLOAD software to update the firmware of
each component. The basic procedure and the update method
for each firmware is explained below.

volumes to the minimum position, and do not input any
audio signals.
• If any components not shown above and not related to
the update are connected, turn off their power.
• When updating the AI8/AO8, you must observe the
restrictions listed below. If you fail to observe these, it
may be impossible to perform the update.
– The port connected to the 68-pin cable used for the
update must match the port selected by the select
switch of the unit.
– If the firmware is blank (the 7-segment display of the
AI8/AO8 indicates 88), make sure that the above
condition is met, and then turn on the power.
However, you must do this for each unit immediately
before updating it.
• When updating the DIO8 via the DSP1D, you must
observe the following restriction. If you fail to observe
this, it may be impossible to perform the update.
– Connect OUTPUT A of the DIO8 to one of the
INPUT ports of the DSP1D.
1-9 Click the [Write] button J. Updating of the items
you checked in step 1-8 will begin.
Once you initiate the writing process even once, the screen
of the CS1D will indicate “If loading is completed, Please
re-start.”
NOTE: When updating the AI8/AO8 or DIO8 via the DSP1D, the
restrictions listed in 1-1 may mean that some units cannot be
updated. (In this case, a message will inform you that a unit was
skipped.)
1-10 When the update is completed, turn the power of
the updated components off and then on once
again.
1-11 Click the [GetVer.] button 9. Verify that the ROM
version field 7 and the File version field 8 are
now the same for each updated item.
If the ROM version cannot be obtained, or if the versions
do not match, the update was not successful. Please repeat
the procedure from step 1-8.
1-12 Repeat steps 1-1–1-11 until all components have
been updated.

To update the CS1D screen software, you will use one memory
card, and copy the downloaded file via the memory card into the
CS1D. Before you perform this procedure, you must complete
the firmware update described in the preceding section.
Be sure to initialize the memory after you update the firmware
and CS1D screen software.

remove the memory card.
For details on removing the card, refer to the manual of
your computer or memory card.
2-7 Insert the memory card into the CS1D’s PC ATA
STORAGE CARD slot A or B, and turn on the
power of the CS1D.
The normal start-up title screen will not appear, and the
CS1D will be in update mode.
2-8 When “START?” appears in the screen, use the
track pad to click the OK button.
If you click the CANCEL button at this time, the CS1D will
stop operating. Remove the card, and restart the CS1D.
2-9 When the screen indicates “COPY OK,” remove
the card and restart the CS1D and all other
components.
Make sure that the CS1D does not display a version check
popup message (see page 5) on the LCD.
“INITIALIZE ALL MEMORIES”: All memory will be
initialized. All parameters that can be stored in memory
will return to their factory-set condition.
3-4 Use the left/right switches on the track pad to
select OK.
After initialization occurs, the system will restart.
The update operation is now complete.
NOTE: If the operation fails, the CS1D displays a popup message
indicating that the version check operation failed. In this case, make
sure that all settings and connections are correct, then restart the
firmware update.
• Insert only one memory card in the PC ATA STORAGE
CARD slot. If you simultaneously insert another card
into the other vacant slot, the update may not occur
correctly.
• If you updated the entire system, you must execute
INITIALIZE ALL MEMORIES. Operation cannot be
guaranteed if you fail to initialize the memories.

About the version
checking function
The CS1D screen software contains a function that checks
whether the software of all components is a valid combination of
versions. If there is a combination of different versions, or if any
component has malfunctioned, the VERSION CHECK popup
window will appear when the CS1D starts up. This will not
appear if all components are correct. This version check function
is explained below.

[Results other than OK]
If there is a problem with other than the firmware that
operates the controls of the CS1D and the INPUT UNIT /
OUTPUT UNIT, the OK button 2 will not appear.
In this case, it will be impossible to perform any screen
operations or use any of the controls, and thus impossible to
control the system.
Since correct operation cannot be guaranteed in such a state,
please remove the cause of the problem. The system will not
recover until the cause is removed.
If there is a problem with the firmware that operates the
controls of the CS1D and the INPUT UNIT / OUTPUT UNIT,
the OK button 2 will appear.
Click the OK button, and the system will forcibly be started up,
ignoring the faulty component or faulty portion of the
component.
At this time, a popup window will appear to inform you which
component is being ignored, and the following limitations will
apply. However, the correctly functioning components will
operate, allowing you to control the remaining portions of the
system.

The system will recover from these limitations when you remove
the cause of the problem and turn on the power of the CS1D
once again.
NOTE:
• These problems can normally be solved by executing the system
update. However, if problems remain after this is done, please
contact Yamaha service.
• If there is a problem with a unit, please check whether there is a
faulty connection for the D-Sub half-pitch 68-pin cable. The unit
will not function correctly if a pin is bent or not inserted.
