This looks like a money pit, buy another and make sure it fires up.

Re: SGI Octane graphics problem

Just a thought, can one switch the position of the board so it goes in a different XIO slot. Never thought about this before myself, but am aware of second card fitted in B slots etc. ?

Re: Which SGI box is your favorite and why?

Interesting topic for myself actually, as I'm considering flooding ebay and going down to a few machines. As I look at all my machines and think about it and think about the things I do, what works at the turn of the key and those that require special needs, I'm so torn... it like giving away all th...

the US asking price for the DM6 in 2006 was 5,600 dollars... :shock: I wouldn't ask that much.. :shock: Unfortunately Ian, the PSU has gone like a Monty Python parrot. I have had it apart but forgot to get the card out and take details, and the whole machine is now ready for shipment to work in the...

Re: Fuel DMediaPro DM6 PCI Digital Video

Just to clarify, so your kind is the green type but it's not an SGI original? ie. no 013 sticker? If so, and it's recognised, then I expect it'll be ok. I'm guessing Discreet sw can't use it because Flame/Smoke doesn't use OpenML bits (so I figure). Ian. Just to confirm then, mine is not an OEM wit...

Re: Fuel DMediaPro DM6 PCI Digital Video

Ian, mine is green and it works.. I say works, it's recognized, but I haven't actually done anything with it yet and it doesn't work with any discreet stuff so far.

Unsure what colour mine is Ian, but I'll check when I get home.

Re: is something going wrong with the movie industry?

Watched Ant Man last night and The Circle. Ant man was actually quite good, although I found the concept of (at times) watching dots fly round the screen akin to a Flea Circus on a low budget. That said, a good film. The Circle, everything in had been done before (in a series called Black Mirror (UK...

Did we get a solution on this? I came back tonight and for the first time in a week powered on the FUEL.. only to be greeted with it powering off after 30 seconds (I now know). Checked the console out which would have given me a red hearing as I'd be pulling all sorts of things.. IP35 PROM SGI Versi...
