Lindy HDMI to USB 3.1 Error


Recommended Posts


I am still pretty new to WatchOut, so apologies if asking obvious question.

I am trying to use a "Lindy HDMI to USB 3.1 Video Capture Device". I have tested using it for general capture on my laptop and it seems fine, but doesn't seem to play well with WatchOut. I keep getting the error code: 

From Display "Display 1" of Stage Tier "Base" of StageList of Stage, 2021-06-03 18:21:39
Rendering error: -2147024809; The parameter is incorrect; Live Video "USB Video Device" of Media List

I can't find any info on this error code. Does anyone know what it is, or have any recommendations about how to fix?
Using WatchPax 4 running version 6.6.5, trying to capture 1080p@60

The error code is from Windows, not WATCHOUT. As you can not install drivers on a WATCHPAX, it may indicate the lack of a driver needed for that device.

Most people would use an HDMI to NDI Ethernet adaptor when using a WATCHPAX to bring in a live signal.

Hi, cheers for that. Is it possible to manually install the drivers needed? (Found an installer on the Lindy website, specifically for Windows 7) Or is that not possible/recommended?

Not possible / recommended. It would defeat the purpose of a locked down predictable / repeatable configuration. At the very least, if you were to figure a way to hack it, it would void all warranty and support.
