Dear PicoPix Max owners!
We are pleased to announce the availability of software version 1.2.1.
This update lays the groundwork for a parallel update channel for applications, in addition to the usual update channel for the system software. In addition to that, we have several improvements:
The first thing you’ll notice is an all-new wallpaper selection. We hope you enjoy them. For those who would like the ability to use your own wallpaper: don’t worry, it’s coming very soon!
Automatic update of installed apps
We’ve rolled out the app update feature on a limited basis in this release. Your projector will automatically check for any available software updates for the pre-installed apps. This is done about once per hour, so you might notice an update badge on some of your favourite apps when you come back to the home screen from a movie. Just click the app to install the update. If you ignore the update, you won’t be asked anymore until the next time you restart your projector.
We are releasing this feature in a phased manner to ensure stability. In the next update we will remove the 1-hour wait for automatic checks, add the ability to check for updates manually, and allow the Home Screen to update itself.
Note that we only offer updates for the preloaded apps currently.
We believe this feature will let us offer faster updates for the latest tested version of apps.
Linearity distortion correction
A long-pending issue with the 4-corner correction has been the presence of horizontal linearity distortion. In this update we’ve introduced a solution in the form of “5-corner correction”. When in 4-CC adjustment, you now have the possibility of adjusting the centre point:
Note: when the 4 corners are all set to (0,0), the correction is disabled entirely (for performance reasons). This means the 5th point correction will have no effect unless you also adjust at least one of the 4 corners.
We hope that this feature will help you get the best picture fit in even more locations.
Screen mirroring update
Our mirroring system, AirReceiver, has been updated with improved compatibility for AirPlay and Google Cast. In the next update we will also replace the built-in Miracast system with a better one that’s built into AirReceiver.
- The mouse icon has been changed.
- Some users reported that Manual Keystone Correction was still not remembered across restarts. This has been fixed now.
- The first few times you start Netflix you’ll be shown a reminder that you should use “mouse mode” for this app.
How to Install
Just head over to the Software Update section of your projector and update it online.
Alternatively, follow the offline update process.
