  1. He asked for a connection with an IPad. Does Blocks support IPads (iOS) for controlling? Couldn't find anything.
  2. Hi, there are several manuals in this forum how to setup a display computer running a wo-show without a production computer. But the question was: "Why not configure all this from within the production software and export it to the specified display machine, just as if going online." Would make it much more easier.....
  3. Yes, when using image-sequences. m.2 will slow down speed when becoming to hot!
  4. Make shure to cool your m.2 ! Very important ! Best would be an active cooling with a fan or water cooling.
  5. Don´t forget, WO is 32bit, so the fastest CPU in singlespeed is recommened. I9 7980 = 2.6GHz Xeon E5-1650 V4 = 3,6 GHz BR
  6. After always having a lot of troubles with the BM capture-cards (sometimes working, sometimes not, I switched to Datapath Vision-Series: https://www.datapath.co.uk/video-capture-cards Plug-in, install driver, select it in WO and finished. Always working. And just a little bit more expensive then BM.
  7. Timeline Playback Video countdown +1 would be very helpfull
  8. Here you can find LTSB-Version of Win10. Registration is required. It´s a 90 days evaluation version, maybe it can be extended with slmgr -rearm or by restoring an image.
  9. @{Vollmers I thought about to give the same answer on yesterday, but I took a look into the archive and couldn´t find the 6.1.4. Where did you found the 6.1.4 ? Thomas
  10. Hi, did you deaktivate the dvd Maker? Important! Are there any installations of codec packs? If yes uninstall and restore your Lap to a date before installing the codecs. (Important). Else: new, fresh installation of Windows-OS (always the best solution) Thomas
  11. Thanks to Rainer and JFK for your help. I know about the Network classifications, normally I only use closed A-Networks with 10.x.x.x. And I know about the different ways to start counting from 0 or 1. But whats really new for me is that counting from 0 is also used in the DMX-world, I´ve never seen that before. So you´re right jfk, it was a kind of surprise for me But I´m not very experienced with lighting and its standards, so it took a while to find out that Universe 1 is 0 in Watchout (Artnet?). I tried to analyse my network with the ArtNetominator, but I couldn´t get any r
  12. Hi Rainer, thanks for your comment! While I´m quite busy in the moment I can´t go on with more tests, but at the end of the week I will have some time. Just to make it clear, I used a (all tweaked) Laptop with 6.1.6 as Production and two PC with I7 and W8100 as Display. Production was always in use so there was no need to control DMx from the displays. Did you checked out which Universe you had to use in the preferences ? I had to set Universe = 0 for DMX-out in Watchout while my LED-Lamp (and a little lighting-mixer) worked with Universe 1 ! As soon as I have time for a second
  13. Can confirm this, yesterday I had a crash on a Display-Computer, after that two instances were opened. I closed them both manualy, new start of WO and everything was fine.
  14. First, thanks to all your answers! Unfortunately I press the wrong key the post was sent and I couldn´t go on with my description. So I had to wait for the admin to aprove my post ..... In between I had a Job to finish and couldn´t find any time for further response. My first Problem was not to get any result on my DMX-Spots and I found out, when every fixture in the lighting world is working on Universe1, Watchout doesn´t ! I know Watchout is sending DMX from Production-PC, but..... in Preferences I have to set the output to Universe 0 to reach all the other devices In Universe 1 !!!
