sfmcnally Posted February 11, 2020 Report Share Posted February 11, 2020 I have tried numerous different iterations of Windows 10 and AMD drivers with Watchout 6.5 (and other versions) and I can't get a smooth output @ 1080p 60hz to 6 blackmagic HDMI-SDI micro converters. This setup works flawlessly with windows 7, but every time I try to migrate to windows 10 I get endless bugs. I started with Windows 10 LTSB 1607 and followed the tweaking guide meticulously. Here are some of my observations. 17Q4.1 Driver = endless flashing of displays and failure to sync or ever arrive at the ready screen with the display name and IP address 19Q4.1 Driver works sometimes the first time lots of flashing and strobing of displays at startup but eventually syncs and can be taken online can only go online once, after going offline, can't go back online without a reboot and more flashing and sync problems This hardware works perfectly when I give up and put the windows 7 hard drive back in the machine with Watchout 6.5 Even when working somewhat with 19Q4.1 driver I can't change the frame rate of a display from the production laptop. The display will never come online. This may be a known bug. I think I read about this in the release notes Setup seems fine with 4 displays and either driver I did the registry key with the longer wait time from the tweaking guide. It didn't solve the problem. I could go on but basically, does anyone have a good combo of windows version and AMD driver that reliably works with 6 Blackmagic HDMI-SDI microconverters and Windows 10/Watchout 6.5 and a W9100 Graphics Card? Should I just stay on Windows 7 forever for these two machines that have 6 outputs? My 4 output machines work fine with windows 10 other than a minor bug that I started a separate thread about. I was under the impression that Dataton was phasing out support for Windows 7 as it is no longer offered by microsoft officially. Any advice is appreciated Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
