No 50Hz with Datapath VisionRGB-E2S

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a watchout display computer that runs windows 7 pro x64 and W.O. 5.1

 

It has a Datapath VisionRGB-E2S (2x DVI In).

With the datapath software (Vision windows) everything works ok: I can see a preview of my input in 1080i50 1080p50 1080p25 1080p59.94 and 1080p60 mode.

 

In W.O. environment I can only see it working in 1080p59.94 and 1080p60.

If I set both the source and the W.O. Video Input to 1080p50 or 1080p25 or 1080i50, watchout only output a still frame of my input.

It grabs a new frame every time I heat ctrl+D (update) but the live video is freezed.

 

I have installed the latest Datapath drivers and installed watchout 5.1 after the driver installation.

I have installed the latest Datapath drivers and installed watchout 5.1 after the driver installation.

While that confirms the hardware, it does not confirm the driver.

The Datapath utility does not use the same DirectX driver that WATCHOUT requires.

Datatpath has had some issues with their DirectX driver recently,

they recently released a fix.

Have you contacted Datatpath support to determine

if what you are attempting is even possible with the DirectX driver?

what I want to capture is a TV signal, but in many circumnstances I'll have to capture a folsom encore program (usually 50p) or a direction station program (usually 50i).

for my tests I've used a folsom image pro HD which can give me all the output formats I need to test every signal.

I wrote to datapath tech support and they gave me this solution:

run cmd.exe as administrator and type the following command

dplinks -changefriendlyname
after running that command I was able to view 1080i50 1080p50 1080p25 720p50

 

so it seems to be solved
