  1. Finally a reason to push in our company for an "original" Dataton Display Server? Configuring a stable 6 Output on Windows 10 is...?? thanks for the insight
  2. hi, which capture card is used for this???: Bi-directional, can be used either as output or input (2 x 12G-SDI or 8 x 3G SDI or 1 x 12G SDI and 4x 3G SDI) will this only be avaible in the Watchpax/Watchmax or can we buy this card? thanks Dimi
  3. I actually have kind of the same problem. Artnet is playing from another software but not from Watchout... when I record Artnet and also patch the recorded Channels as Inputs (just to check if the recording worked) I can see that I recorded Artnet but then it's not going out to the lights. Yes I am online, yes the universes and channels are correct and yes I had problems multiple times on several occasions and I always had to work around this problem quite time consuming. ... yes I know of the counting problems of the universes. and I also had the problem while converting the whole ch
  4. as "founding father" of this topic I suggest the next step for it. Users suggest a feature and other users vote for it. Everybody can see the count and Dataton flags it with "under review" and "planned under future release" or "we don't give a..." (I guess somebody can come up with some more appropiate flags) So, we, the customers have better insight of future planned developments and can also better see where the community is moving as a whole! The form/management of this topic is nice but obsolete. It's myspace or... ICQ... as reference: uservoice.com Millumin uses that f
  5. hi, as a longtime user of Watchout I'd like to ask someone of the moderators here in the forum Is there any plan of Dataton to implement interactive elements in any way directly or indirectly (like WATCHNET) into Watchout? 2018 is really the year where I would really start losing ground if I would not put energy into some basic stuff in an easy way like 1) Tracking with optitracks (or similar) for multi(!) purposes 2) interfacing with multitouch on large touch tables (or also with laser touch e.g.) 3) not really interactive and rather some feature request I admit but playing in t
  6. the weird part: I am using Luminet to look into the artnet what is happening there. Playing with the Production PC I am not seeing anything on artnet but my lamps dim nicely... Playing over the display cluster I am seeing my DMX value changes but nothing is playing in real life... I am certainly no expert but this makes absolutly no sense to me ------ Two remarks: - I changed to a cheap enttec open dmx converter and everything plays fine (WO5 and WO6 latest versions)- production mode or cluster mode. - had to record a DMX show two months ago and there I also had probl
  7. Thank you both for your quick answers so far your suggestions did not help. To clearify. Tried it with 6.1.6 and 6.2b16 with an elation enode 8 pro Big thanks again in advance
  8. hi everyone, hope someone can help me. I have programmed a show with artnet output to some lights and when I use the production PC to play the show everthing is working. When I want to control the show from my iPhone http://app.dataton.com/remote it completly ignores the artnet output - altough the rest of the show is working (play/stop the timeline). Watchnet is unfortunatley no option because I have the production dongle only for programming. thanks everyone in advance Dimi
  9. Hi Thomas, Problem is not the live Video itself. Problem is after pressing Strg-w we can't SET the input. Altough the Input appears in the list there after setting it it reverts back to "NONE" After trying it with several PC's and capture cards from different vandors in different combinations I can tell you it is not a problem with the capture cards because in WO 6.0.2 everything works fine
  10. hi, first. thanks for quick writing! I did not add WO and Windows Version cause I am having the problem from 2008 when I started with Watchout in now the 5th or so renewel of our Display PCs with various versions of Windows. But let's get into business with the current rig: 6 core CPU, Asrock X99 Extreme 4, AMD Firepro, SSD for Win, M2 SSD for WO, Capture Cards Vision SDI2 Datapath (4 lanes), Startech DVI (1 lane), Win 8.1, WO 6.0.2 (no, I can't update to 6.1 - cause there all the live Inputs are gone - other forum post) Production PC is the same except the M2 SSD and the capt
  11. Hi, I am having these problem now for years and wanted to ask the forum if someone has a workaround or solution for this: I am inputing 720p50 or 1080p50 into various capture cards in various PCs and multitiple shows and always the same. (output is on 50 Hz and Show is on 50 fps in settings. Input with no frame blending or deinterlacing of course) Inputs come direct from mixers or cams directly. Does not matter... I use and used various card from BM, to No Name to Datapath (SDI, HDMI, DVI...). It doesn't matter. Sometimes I get micro stuttering. It comes every few minutes a
  12. I have various systems with various hardware specs (tried it from Lenovo Laptops to 6 core machines with normal SSD or M2 disks) what they have in common is Win 8.1 64 bit I have capture cards from Blackmagic, Datapath and Startech. None of them (or even one at the time in a system is working) Everything is working in 6.0.2... on these pcs I did this 1) Uninstall WATCHOUT 2) Remove both the capture card from the machine. 3) Uninstall all drivers for the capture card. 4) Restart your PC 5) Perform any pending Windows OS updates on your PC 6) Install the capture card and it
  13. hi, having a strange problem: I want to set my Live Inputs (ctrl-w) on a Display PC running WO6.1 but when I click on my capture card it always keeps on "Video in - None" I have Live Inputs in Windows. The problem does not seem to appear in WO 6.0.2 (I can set the video input there) but the production PC (and programmed show) are running on 6.1. thanks Dimi
