Hello all, long time listener first time caller. I am looking for some general hardware advice. I am about to upgrade my WO6 display machines with two new machines, and I was wondering if anyone has any recent experience with a new build, and any do's or dont's they may have come across. Also are there any resources or general guidelines around building a display machine from scratch. I realise it is a little bit "how long is a piece of string" but if anyone has any tips, or any recommended and / or tested configurations, I would be very glad to hear them. ( I also understand that Dataton and its recommended re sellers can provide tested hardware configurations, but budget, and the desire to learn more about the hardware, means a build-it-myself solution is the preference ) I am looking at something like the following: - Gigabyte X299 AORUS Ultra MB + Intel i7 7820X - GPU with 4 matching ports ( AMD Radeon Pro WX7100 ) or - GPU with mix of ports ( one of the many GTX 1080Ti options, which is my preference. ) - 500gb NVMe M.2 data drive ( Samsung 960 Pro ) - 256gb 2.5" SSD OS drive ( Samsung 850 Pro) - 32gb RAM ( 4 x 8gb, 3000mhz ) - Windows Pro 7 or 10 plus 850w PSU and rack mount case. Some general questions: - is Windows 10 Pro 64 bit and WO6 stable, or if I should stick to Win7 ? - are there any suggested non-RAID backup methods for the data drive ? ( having read other forums regarding the negative impact of RAID controllers on SSD speeds ) - are there any sync or latency issues with outputs on different port types ( ie mixing DP with HDMI ) Thanks in advance, any and all advice and suggestions appreciated.
Ok, I need some advice. We are not getting consistent video out of two of our machines. Here is the build: Three identical water-cooled rigs: Asus Prime X299-A 6-core i7 16GB DDR4 RAM FirePro W7100 quad-output card Dual Samsung SSDs, one 850EVO boot drive, 960Pro M.2 Watchout data. Monoprice SDI-HDMI and HDMI-SDI converters Dedicated gigabit network. Windows 10 professional 64-bit The cards are not putting out video consistently. I have one machine up and running by forcing EDID, but the other two are just bonkers. The Epson laser phosphor projectors are flashing and Watchpoint won't go online. We've nuked and reinstalled one of the machine from scratch. All drivers up to date. Nothing seems to work. We have started tech rehearsals with 4 of 11 outputs working, and it's a disaster. This is the same rig I asked advice about re: VNC.
At the moment WATCHOUT doesn't work in Windows 10. We are working on a solution and will release an update as soon as possible. This issue has our highest priority and we expect to have a solution in March-April. Until then we recommend Windows 7 Professional. We apologize for any inconvenience!
