Watchmax lose (drop) signal on the last port (4).

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I have a issue with watchmax server, sometimes is losing (dropping) signal from output 4 to a projector, usually that is happening when the show is started. When the show is paused it's happening, but not very often. I tried to swap output 4 with output 3, but it's dropping again on the projector 3, so that means that the issue is coming from the output 4 from a graphic card. 
From the graphic card, displayport is connected to DVI passive adapter, from DVI passive adapter to a Lightware by DVI again and from Lightware to projector by LAN. 

 

EDID settings are checked. Outputs are elumated.

Can someone help me?

Thanks.

What resolution and refresh rate are your outputs running?

 

Passive adaptors are best avoided.

The AMD FirePro card in WATCHMAX only partially supports passive adaptors,

more than two risks encountering issues.

i.e. All output connections, not just the one giving you trouble,

may contribute to the issue.

 

Be sure your Lightware parts are self powered -

do not draw power from the graphics card outputs.

Yours probably are, I mention it for the benefit of others.

We used Extron before, also with passive adapters, the only difference was connection to a Extron. We were using Displayport to DVI, DVI to HDMI to Extron. After fixing the issue with EDID extron worked good. I don't know what frame rate we are using. How to check? 

Resolution is 1920 x 1200.

Thanks.
