Power cycle projectors without losing signal?

Post by aarkley » Fri Apr 19, 2019 21:46

I recently set up a permanent installation using Resolume Arena 6 on a custom built PC running a Single 11GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. I'm using two Epson PowerLite L615U projectors.

My question is this. When I turn off the projectors - and turn them back on - Resolume stops sending signals to the two projectors. I can go into ADVANCED output and reset it - but I want my client to be able to turn off just the projectors at the end of the day - and turn them on in the morning without any problems...

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Does the client also turn off the PC ?

I would just try doing things in order .
Start up projectors , wait a bit , start up resolume.
When powering off , shut down resolume & PC , then shut down projectors.

or This edid emulator could help you

Yeah - that's exactly what I'm having them do now... following a sequence of steps for starting and stopping resolume. (and turning off the PC)

I'd like the client to be able to not touch the computer -and just turn on and off the projectors. (and maybe reboot once a week)

You could try an Edid minder inserted between the card and projector. The card will always see the edid minder as being connected leaving you free to turn the projectors on and off.

Hi Empyfree

That's a great idea... I didn't know such a thing existed.

Thanks!

Yeah this is the best solution. There are a whole bunch of products out there that provide this functionality, you'll see them described as EDID Minder or EDID Detective.

The "fancy" ones will run upwards of USD 100, though they do more. These will certainly work.

There are some low cost ones too around USD 22: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0722NVQHX/ I am not sure how reliable they are, but for that price is worth trying.
