  1. Hi All, Just thought I'd share a bit of a helpful finding (as I couldn't find any info before) re. connecting to display PCs via the in-built remote access. I was unable to connect to my display PC and was getting the error "Can't establish remote access connection" If the external displays on your display machine are at a different resolution/frequency to your Watchout show-file (I know this isn't great practice, I just hadn't noticed apart from this remote access issues!). Watchout just changes the external display settings to match the show-file when you take it online. When you remotely connect it looks like the exiting from full-screen causes the system to go back to the OS-resolutions, not the Watchout resolutions/frequencies. The fix for this is to make sure all your displays are running the same settings as they do in the workspace. I'm not really expecting any sort of tips/input here but I though I'd better share it given someone in the future may run into this problem. Cheers Cal!
  2. Hi, we're line testing and shaking out our new Watchout rig, and the Display machines are taking commands and displaying most of the monitors. However, we are unable to 'manage' them using the VNC service built in. We can remotely shut them down, etc but the VNC throws an error of unable to connect to service. Is this easily fixable? I am a few hours away from just installing TightVNC and throwing my hands up. I need to get this working. Any info would be appreciated!

  3. Hello, I am doing a theatrical production (using Watchout 4.5.1) where the production computer is in the lighting booth, but we are still teching the show, so I would like remote control of the production computer from the house without having to move the production computer up and down from the lighting booth every day. I know that installing VNC software on Watchout machines is not a good idea, since it interferes with Watchout's built in VNC capabilities, but I am wondering if there is a way I can connect to the production computer as a vnc server from my laptop plugged into the Watchout network. Thank you, Garrett
  4. Hey All, There is a feature of Watchout that I find useful at times but not at others and I was wondering if anyone has found a clever way to work around it. When you add a Computer Screen media device to the timeline it shows a blue screen when there isn't a connection- this is great for initial troubleshooting. ‚ÄčThe problem I'm having is that when I update or go back online I'm getting a flash of blue onstage as the computers recconnect. This blue also pushes through being in standby. The only solution I've found so far to absolutely avoid it is to shutter the projectors which isn't ideal. Is there a setting buried somewhere that I can change to make the vnc connection not show blue? Thanks! Matt
  5. Hello all Is there a way to have another instance of VNC on the production Computer where in one could witness the time line on a different computer than the Production computer. IN our circumstance the production computer is located far away in the venue contacted to a large midi and dmx network of various devices. and i what to sit closer to my screens to make adjustments. Watchout already uses VNC internally from production to display so would another instance of VNC cause problems? Ben Chaisson Playground Studios
  6. Hi, Does anyone know how to configure a MacMini (osx 10.7.4) for vnc ("Computer screen) access in Watchout? I've managed to use osx built in function to aquire the image, but it wants me to login as the current user, which is not possible thru Watchout. I need watchout to auto login to the mac.
  7. Hi all. I have just built a couple of new Display Computers that looks like this: WIN7 PRO 64bit ASUS P9X79 DELUXE X79 S-2011 ATX INTEL CORE I7 3930K 3.20GHZ 12MB S-2011 32GB of KINGSTON HYPERX GENESIS 1600MHZ DDR3 CL9 XMP ASUS RADEON HD7970 DCII TOP 3GB GDDR5 PCI-E DVI/DP 1 x CORSAIR FORCE GT SERIES 3 2.5" 120GB SSD MLC (SYSTEM) 2 x CORSAIR FORCE GT SERIES 3 2.5" 120GB SSD MLC (RAID-0 DATA) CORSAIR H100 HYDRO CPU COOLER I have not decided what kind of capture card i will mount in them. In most applications we would have HD-SDI from a production mixer coming in. Anyone that can point me to a good and tested capture card? I have looked at: DeckLink HD Extreme with dual SDI inputs. http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/decklinkhdextreme/models/ But for getting external computers in VNC is crisp but framerate is bad. Have anyone tried any Hardware VNC Servers like: Adderlinks iPeps http://www.adder.com/products/adderlink-ipeps#specification or Blackboxs ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus http://www.blackbox.com/Store/Detail.aspx/ServSwitch-Wizard-IP-Plus/ACR2005A The latter claiming to support 1080p Video. and both VGA and DVI if this works it would be perfect as the speakers coming in late with their own PC/MAC can just plug it in. / Mattias
