Hi, I want to put 11 touch surfaces (PremierTek TP220) connected via usb onto a single system. The devices output standard MS HID protocol, but we are looking at whether or not the generic input assignment is the way to go. The touch surfaces will simply trigger a video on an aux timeline but each touch surface needs to trigger the relative screen display (ie touch surface one triggers screen one, touch surface three triggers screen three, etc.) Is there a way of specifying a specific usb device address in the task manager that will relate to the separate inputs, and also lock them so they do not reassign if the system is rebooted? System is WO 5.3.1 Cheers Tim Fothergill CMT
Sometimes we're using the display machines for other applications than Watchout as well. Last week we used a system with a eyefinity 6950 card for simply playing a mpg2 video with windows media player. I noticed a visual artifact called screen tearing. Searching the internet I found discussions about eyefinity setups which cause this artifact. "The problem is all about timing between the converters, while using a mixture of inputs and monitors have different timings for each." "The problem stems from using more than 1 type of connector for your monitors." In our situation we used one straight DVI connection for the primary monitor and a displayport to DVI adapter for the secondary monitor. While playing the video full screen on the secondary output i saw the screen tearing artifact. Connecting both monitors with a displayport to dvi adapter solved the problem. Just wondering how Watchout handles timings of the multiple outputs and if anyone saw this artifact while using Watchout with eyefinity cards as well?
