  1. I have 4 of the Hades Canyon machines. They are very powerful and ideal for my application. Using Win 10 x64 pro for the OS I had hoped to use all 6 outputs from the Display config. Production config works OK. It feels like an issue with the Radeon video drivers. I'm hoping the Dataton engineers can look at it and write a patch. I haven't tried to see if I can run it using only the Intel video. I really hope they will make the program 64 bit compliant as I believe it is severely crippled running as a 32 bit program. I use Watchout on film sets such as American Gods and the standard tower type PC's are bulky, heavy and take up precious floor space.
  2. I used the control W key command to access "video in" on the display machine and checked that it was set to the BMD WDM driver. This did nothing to solve the problem so I downgraded Watchout to version 6.0.2 and then it worked. The live video menu function looks like the version from 5.5.1. which also works. I would prefer to use the newer version of Watchout if possible because if I'm not mistaken it seems to be more stable than the older software. By the way when users remote into the display machine what program do they use to do this? Is it something like TeamViewer or a built in function of Watchout?
  3. Recently upgraded a Win 7 display machine from Watchout 5.5.1 to 6.2.2. Everything seems to work except Live Video In. Using BMD mini recorder I could get a picture from SDI input or HDMI input on 5.5.1 but not 6.2.2. This was using various different SDI formats including 1080P at 23.98 fps. BMD software sees the input OK. I get an error message in Watchout saying "video in 1 set to none" I tried setting video input to 2, 3 same message "video in 2 set to none" "video in 3 set to none" It seems to be some kind of driver issue but updating the BMD drivers did not help
