Watchpax 4 shuffles displays

Recommended Posts

I discovered that the display numbering isn't consistent between boots on Watchpax 4. (all 4 outputs used) After a deep dive in the manual i found that it is recommended to use active displayport adapters when the projectors are started/restarted after the watchout machines are. (which is the case in this instance)

Will active DP-HDMI adapters fix this? Or are EDID managers like HDMI detective needed?

No, active adaptors will not change the behavior.

Provided all displays are powered on and available prior to WATCHPAX power up, and providing the WATCHPAX is powered down while all displays remain powered up and active - the display output numbering should not change on the next power up. Adding hardware EDID managers will allow you to achieve the necessary active displays at power down and prior to power up if need be.

Huh, strange that it's mentioned in the manual then.

Well, I guess I'm off to buy 8 EDID managers then. It's a permanent install with the Watchpax units running continously and separate control of the projectors.

Thanks for the quick answer!
