  1. Hi, I ran a quick test and first of all, thank you very much for the output image on geometry correction. This will save many hours ! And there is also a little bug, the output image on the geometry correction window sometimes loses parts of the image (edge or edges appear black) Kaarle
  2. Hi, we have used ImagePros between WO server and projectors for converting the signal to BarcoLink (1920x1200 over SDI) for example. And there is the possiblity to switch sources for backup purposes. Kaarle
  3. Thanks for the explanation of the checksum, Thomas! I think I can work this out now on my own. The string part is tricky, I will test this out over the weekend.
  4. Hi all, I can now confirm that the shutter and lamp control worked as charm with the Flexes. And the Thomas quidelines made possible to change the PIP window source. But the PIP must be enabled first.. Many thanks for you guys for the help. But as activation of the PIP window - it seems to me that i have to activate layout configuration and it has a name as a Cstring. The manual has the string syntax on page 10 do i understand correctly - if my layout name is "custom_1" the Cstring syntax would be : ’c’ ’u’ ’s’ ’t’ ’o’ ’m’ ’_’ ’1’ $00 the manual for setting the layout is on page 1
  5. Thanks a bunch i'll give it a shot tomorrow. This really helps, hopefully I can move on with this knowledge and sort out on my own. I'll let you know how it went. Kaarle
  6. Sure, the protocol manual is here: http://www.barco.com/tde/(1841981491990962)/R5905447/02/Barco_ReferenceGuide_R5905447_02__HDX-series-Command-Catalog.pdf
  7. Hi all, First of all, sorry for the topic but i really am in a bit of trouble. Since i have no coding experience, I dont know where to start when I need to activate PIP function on a Barco HDX-W20 FLEX projector. I have to activate PIPs on 4 projectors simultaneously, as i know the Watchout so it should be the tool for that. I have gone through the barco protocol manual, but as i mentioned, no coding experience and that doesnt get me far. Any clues where to start are appreciated. with regards Kaarle

  9. Hi all I have upgraded to Firepro W7000 but as i recieved the card I discovered that I bought a card with a note on the box : For HP systems, warranty void if not used in HP systems I have a Asus P9X79 WS MB + i7 processor should I be worried?
  10. Hi all Im having this strange problem startin 5.3.1 i use my Macbook Pro as a production computer with XP on Parallels, so far everything was supergood but starting with 5.3.1 im having somekind of network error and after going online, production loses connection with display. using WIN8 laptop no such problem. Anyone can confirm the same kind of problem?
  11. Thank you all for the expertise input on this matter. I've removed the raid from the system and will continue with 2 ssd-s only. to be honest - this incident made me even stronger believer in Watchout - its hard to believe that after this kind of hardware error - still the captures worked and we got out of it without any big problems..
  12. Hi all Here's what happens when the disk (or a disk array in my case), where the Watchout 5.3 is installed, disappears from the operating system during the Watchout Show. I had a 3 projector edge blend 3:1 widescreen image with a h.264 mp4 looping in the background and 2 captures, 1 DVI 1080p50 through Datapath VisionRGB-E2S and SDI 720p50 through Blackmagic Decklink extreme 3d one moment the background loop jumps to edge of the screen, and both of the captures freezed for a second, and then the captures continued to work. I had set midi controller for the opacity of both captures
  13. Hi, I had a really embarrasing situation where i had promised my client that I'll produce round shaped live spots on a 6 projector panorama. Since I carried out the testing in my office with limited posiibilities, I didnt find out that the masked image must touch display 1 (somehow i tested 2 spots that were working) Otherwise i really love Watchout and its possibilities, but I have sugesstion that theese problems and bugs that are known to users and developers should be pinned to this forum. so that theese embarrasing situations could be avoided...

  14. Today I found some time to test this more thorughly and I got this working. I'm using ASUS P9X79 WS motherboard and first the Card was installed into X16 PCI-E lane (Blue x8 x16 speeds) First I installed the Card into another PC that is usually not used for WatchOut. Since the card worked there flawlessy and it only had x4 lanes, i inserted the Card into x4 lane (white) and reinstalled drivers, I downloaded them freshly today. I do not know what worked - are the drivers freshed or the card needs X4 lane to work, but it started working with no problems in WatchOut.
  15. Hi Quick question - why is the Power Supply on the Sandy Bridge-E (LGA2011/X79) setup 1200W ? I did my calculations and didnt get over 600W of power usage.. of did I miss with the calculations?
