Programming The MIO R-1 AUDIO Using KeypadBuilder
The MIO R-1 AUDIO comes pre-customized with appropriate labels, which in most
cases should not be changed. However, if in your installation you intend to use the
MIO R-1 AUDIO with a NetLinx Controller and Metreau AxLink keypads (for more than
just Audio), you could customize your buttons in the KeypadBuilder application. The
application and documentation are available from
There are a select number of Serial Commands the MIO R-1 AUDIO recognizes. For a
full list and descriptions, consult the MIO R-1 AUDIO Operation/Reference Guide.
The Programming Jack is used for communication between the device and
KeypadBuilder. The programming jack uses a three-wire, 2.5 mm stereo jack, you can
order the programming cable (FG10-817) from AMX if you do not currently possess
one. While loading your configuration file make sure the device is situated as such that
the batteries will not fall out. The load will fail if your batteries fall out during the
process. The MIO communicates at 115200 baud rate.
Refer to the MIO R-1 AUDIO Operation/Reference Guide for instructions on using the
Programming Jack to load configuration files on the MIO R-1 AUDIO.
Tone Control & SRS Setting
To access the Tone Control and SRS settings, press the TONE button. This enables
the Tone Control Mode with BASS as the first mode selected. There are 3 Tone
Control Modes available for adjustment, and 4 SRS options, as follows:
BASS: Increase / Decrease from -10dB to +10dB (Up/Down NAV buttons)
Treble: Increase / Decrease from -10dB to +10dB (Up/Down NAV buttons)
Balance: Left / Right (Up NAV button = right, Down NAV button = left)
SRS options: BASS Boost, Focus, 3D, WOW
The Source buttons on the Metreau keypad provides visual feedback as to which
mode it is currently in. The following sources will light based on the current mode:
Source 1 = BASS
Source 2 = Treble
Source 3 = Balance
Source 4 = SRS
When first entering Tone Control Mode, BASS mode is active (Source 1 LED is lit). To
move from mode to mode, select the Center NAV button. This saves the setting and
moves to the next mode.
