    How to update your miniMAD for DMX and ArtNet playback.

    Update your miniMAD SD-card

    First, you need to download the latest image of the miniMAD system (8 and 16GB versions are available) and the flashing tool that corresponds to your platform (“Win32DiskImager” for Windows, “Apple Pi-Baker” for Mac).
    All those files are available to download on MadMapper YourSpace page: http://madmapper.com/yourspace

    Mac

    1. Double-click on the .tar.bz2 file to decompress it. Once finished you should have a .img file next to it.
    2. Insert your miniMAD SD-card in your computer’s card-reader.
    3. Launch "Apple Pi-Baker" and input your administrator password.
    4. Select your SD-card in the devices list on the left.
    5. Click on “Restore Backup” and select the .img disk-image file to start the operation.

    Windows

    1. Download and install WinRAR on your system: https://www.win-rar.com.
    2. Decompress the downloaded .tar.bz2 file by right-clicking --> Extract Here. Once finished you should have a .img file next to it.
    3. Insert your miniMAD SD-card in your computer’s card-reader.
    4. Launch "Win32DiskImager".
    5. Browse and select the .img disk-image file.
    6. Select the target device letter that corresponds to your SD-card - be careful: you may damage your system if you would select the wrong drive.
    7. Click on “Write” and confirm to start the operation.

    The flashing operation can take up to 20-30 minutes.

    Now you're ready to use your miniMAD with MadMapper 3.1 and playback DMX/Artnet sequences.

    Enjoy!

    Will this work only with Garagecube LED or can this output artnet directly out of the ethernet port on the Mini Mad?

    Thanks

    You can output to ArtNet!
    Or DMX (using our USB to DMX controller or the ENTTEC USB pro)

    Will this work with the first generation miniMADs or do I have to invest in the new black ones?

    It will work on all miniMADs, you just have to install the latest disk-image as explained in the official user-guide you can find on Yourspace.

    As for today, latest version of MadMapper is 3.2.2.
    What version of MadMapper are you using?
    Did the update to the latest miniMAD 3.2.2 succeed?
    The best advice I can give you is flashing your miniMAD SD-card using the latest image that's available on Yourspace together with the user-guide that describes the different steps.
    Please let us know.
