I running 5 and 6 port mini display port cards, sometimes two of them. Currently with Arena on W7 64. It seems every time I setup at a new venue, or often even when I reboot, my main display goes flitting off to one of the other screens... This causes stress, lots... Anyone have a solution?
Oh la la! I love learning new keyboard shortcuts! I'll try that one out tonight... I'll owe you a beer or three for sure if it's really that easy.
Truly, what I want is a way to lock the display configuration. I often have to output a different format on each port, and very often, Resolume and windows get into huge arguments over display numbering.
yes we also have this problem here. we use an AMD w600 with 6 display port outputs. the screen numbers in windows and arena don't match. we tried deleting the config.xml and restating everything with connected projectors and without, to no avail. it is not so bad actually but doesnt help trusting our rig to perform flawlessly. support?
knowing about the shortcut to switch main screens might come in handy at some time though.
If Windows places screens differently after a boot, re-arranging them in the Windows screen setup doesn't do much. internally they keep the same order. It's much easier to swap them around in the Advanced Output of Arena.
thanks for the answer! yes, thats what we do now. works too. just a bit confusing, and we wonder why arena should stick with his own interpretation of screen order when this order should be set by the catalyst drivers. is this something we have to live with or is there a way to tell arena to reconsider?
