IPC Issues

Hi, I've just recently started using our new IPC for larger shows and ran into two issues that I thought I would ask about. I've been running Hog2.

1. I'm using a Matrox Dual Head to Go analog edition video splitter to split the output of the third DVI monitor port to two additional monitor. After getting the resolution set right, it's been working great. One possibly related issue that has occasionally come up when I start the console up is that the front panel of the console doesn't seem to be recognized, ie, the buttons don't function, the led's don't light up. Restarting the console has solved the problem so far and never has this happened while the console has been in operation.

2. I'm running a second backup on another seperate computer, I have the IPC and the computer linked with MSC. Tonight when I went to load the current version of the show on the backup computer the console was one cue behind in regards to sinking up with the IPC. Turning off MSC IN in the Inputs Panel solved the problem. I'm guessing it's just one of those things but was curious to know if anyone else had experienced this. Also in regards to this set-up is this the most reliable full tracking backup solution available. I'd love it if Hog 2PC would output MIDI notes instead of just MSC so the files would stay in sink and not just the cues. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions that might improve the situation.

Thanks

  • Eric,

    Both of your problems are odd ones to diagnose. As for the first, I commend you on using the Matrox Dual Head to Go with the Hog iPC... cool idea. I am glad it is working well. As for the front panel problem, you might check to ensure that the internal connections are all OK. Also do you have any other USB devices plugged in?

    As for the MSC getting off by one cue... that is very odd. What type of MIDI device are you using on your computer?
