  1. Same problem here, I have a show into a tweaked guided pc and I have got a crash when sometimes upload a new video, randomly then display crashes go offline and restart. I've seen the log, and got the severity network error "kind" : "Network","code" : -2146949299, "excuse" : "Command: writeShow; [Facility 32776]" Are the same version 6.5, and are tweaked correctly
  2. there are a pletora of Cisco managed switches it's a very big museum. I'll investigate with this udp flood's THANK YOU
  3. Hi to everyone, Just for curiosity and for sake of a perfect setup I wish to know how to encode with ffmpeg and multiple chunks to have the best hardware support in the watchpax 4. Before the 6.4 I always used 1 chunk , but i don't know if the watchpax 4 use cpu or gpu to decode HAP files or if is better to decode with multiple chinks in this machines. Thank you a lot
  4. Thank you for your support! There is only one internet cable and two network ports, one of which is disabled from the control panel. I also tried to break away from the museum network and connect with a local switch, leaving the IP addresses set previously. I haven't tried to set a class c address (192 etc. etc), do you think it can make a difference?
  5. Yes on startup after the Watchout logos the server with the script go ahead the other remain paused at the first frame. If I change the location of the script, so if I delete the script from the current server ,and write the script on the other the problem is exchanged. it's windows 7, I've started from a blank iso with pen drive, and then followed every single step of the tweaking list for win7 founded in the forum. I've prepared numerous server and all still running without issues (with windows 10). the strange thing that happens is that sometimes it runs perfectly, on Friday with one of the owners of the museum, for an extraordinary evening visit, it all started perfectly. authenticate 1\r\ngetStatus\r\n after the show load command it's start with the proper show loaded and then when the show starts (in the first server, while the other paused) if I send another getStatus the answer is ""and the other boolean value. sorry when the museum is closed I can transcribe all the response, I'll go the 17 June. Thanks a lot
  6. Now the last updates from the museum are that when the two servers starts, just the one with the start up script is playing, the other remain paused, than when the external device send the string to call the videos starts slightly out of sync.. i cannot understand how to fix it... help me please 😔
  7. Hi Jfk and Thank you for your reply. No i do not spending double commands to different machines.I guess my horrible english and the hurry does not help, so i try to be more schematic: 1. Why in your opinion at the start up, start only the server with the Startup script and the second remain paused. 2. Why in your opinion if I send a tcp status of the machine that loaded the show it answer with “ “ ? Is it Normal? 3. After the Windows re install i’ve got those problems. Is it a problem of eindows update? Do you think is a problem of a not correct tweking? 4. Do you think that a Fresh new installation and upgrade to Windows 10 can help? thank you
  8. Hi to everyone, I'm stuck with a problem on a project. Due to windows problem I have re installed windows 7 on two server machines (old watchout servers with updated graphic cards FireProW5100). Before the reinstallation some bios problems but when started was ok. This two server are in a network with all the museum and has 10.3.6.xx ip's. I've set the cluster name instead of ip's address. I've updated watch out at 6.4 release and followed the tweeting guide. On the startup (the two display server are without production) the script is always the simplest auth->delay->load->wait->run the display that as the script start, then after variable time (20 sec circa) start the second display paused. In this museum a device launch some string to trigger some aux timeline. If I send the string (auth->run) start perfectly in both the display without problem and then return in the main loop perfectly. Why? I'm missing something? I've tried to send directly the tcp strings to have some debug, and apparently when I send the command load "myproj" and the ask the status with get status the display response is an empty "" project loaded.
  9. Hi Josef, thank you for tue answer. No i didn’t tried because without 3d module i can’t finish the work. If i perform this test and the video play smoothly si there a chance to ger the job done? Si there a way ti export the entire 3d scene to bake the animation outside watchout?
  10. Hi! I'm in trouble with a projection mapping that I'm working on. I've got a 3d model of a low poly mountain. 2 4K projectors used with a middle overlap(yes I know it's a bit crazy). Now I've imported my obj with a correct uv-map generated in cinema 4d. everything is working like a charm all the geometry are corrected, except for Video is choppy. I've got a pixel map of 3840x 4320. who project this installation, buyed a watchpax 20, I believe that this little machine have not power to do 3d, blending and 2d warp with a 3840x4320 hap movie. So I've tried with this NUC Intel NUC8i7HVK CPU Core i7-8809G Grafica Radeon RX Vega M GH Archiviazione M.2 2280 x 2 (PCIe, SATA), RAID 0 e 1 a lot of ram I believe 16gb ddr4 I performed all installation with the official tweaking guide so it's perfect, and I've used it in other installation before, no problem at all. But seems that video is lagging also with this nuc. I'm missing something? Someone can help me or just share same situations?
  11. Thank you very much for your partecipation to my problem Ok, but also in 1 display setup? so the sync from multiple output in the same pc with fixed ip got problems?
  12. Hi Everyone, I'm having an issue with a simple display sistem with 3 output. I've got an Intel NUC NUC8i7HVK that as an amd rx vega m, with windows 10 pro 1709 and i have followed all the step of the windows 10 tweaking list. It's a simple set up in display mode (without production). When switched on the display there is a script that load and start the show. The show has only 3 video in sync (with the same duration) in the main timeline one per otuput in loop freerun mode. Then i put a pause command for stopping the timeline and let the video looping. when pc restart after 2 hours again... The problem is that after 2 hours the 3 output lagging and lose sink each other. My only way to resolve this is to remove the loop and freerun and put a goto command to the beginning of the timeline for restart the video. Do you think it's a good way to resolve this problem? The museum where I've installed the pc it's far so i've to manage other solution to test the best way before go there Thanks a lot
  13. I've got this configuration: intel i7 930 socket 1366 (y.2011) nvidia gts 250 used with multiple output motherboard asus p6t 3 gb ram but i'm planning to upgrade this due to the low cost i'm planning to buy two ssd disk: one 60 gb for windows installation (C:) and one of 128 gb for watchout. Do you think this hardware it's to old or it's good for couple of year? The use will be video player with mask and geometry Thnaks a lot
