External Monitoring Problem

gcarlier wrote on 11/17/2000, 5:16 AM
As a theatre company, working with video, we're planning to
deploy a
solution with Vegas Video

We've downloaded the Demo Version for testing, but we have
a problem with
the External Monitor Function,
which is very important for us.

In fact this function doesn't work at all. We're using for
the moment a MIRO
DC10+ Video card, with the latest drivers (1.06), in a 500
Celeron
Intel processor, 256Mo Ram, 7200 rpm Hard Drive, RIVA TNT
Video Card and
DirectX 7, under Windows 98 se, and a JVC External Monitor
plugged on the composite plug.

As written in the FAQ, the video file is the same as the
project output,
codec too, the card is recognized in the External Monitor
preferences, and External monitor button checked.

External monitoring works with the Miro Software and Adobe
Premiere 4.1, and I've tried on several PCs, so I don't
understand the problem.

Thanks for your help

When did you download the demo? The final version of Vegas Video
v2.0b was just released yesterday. I've read where other users have
had external monitor problems in the past and I believe this problem
has been addressed in this version released yesterday. So try
downloading the new demo.

problem 1 ? i don't think the miro card you are using is OHCI so
could be something in that ... also on the trial version 2.0a and the
2.0b (pre-release ) the external monitor did NOT work on my system -
933mhz, 256ram, OHCI 1394 ..... the new release of VV 2.0B the
external monitor does work ..... it appears the demo trial version is
still the pre-release ..perhaps they will update it ?????

is the miro board using the MS drivers? TI drivers , or the Miro
driver ...you did mention you had the latest dc10 driver- you might
try switching to the MS dv drivers ....

OHCI software/equipment wasn't around when the DC10 came out ..then
all capture board drivers were made to work with only that
manufacturers capture board and the drivers hooked up with
premiere,MS 6 etc... so as long as you take the DC 10 with miro
drivers it should work in most computers.
so the external monitor using miro software w/DC 10 drivers were made
specifically for that setup ....

try to see if the MS dv drivers will work with the card using VV ..

Just to clarify -
It is ESSENTIAL that the project attributes match exactly the source
file you are trying to output to external monitor. If anything is
different, it won't work. I was able to monitor files with my DC30+
card but you also have to make sure the source file is using the Miro
codec.

just FYI
