Re: convert onyx 10000 to 220v outlet

Hi Mr Bill,

Attached the circuit diagram on the inside of the back door of my Onyx rack. Do you have a similar one for your 3-phase setup to help compare?

Re: Onyx 2 IR3 Resolution Issue with 2 RM's installed

I am hoping to get a dual pipe Onyx2 rack soon - I have been trying to get one shipped for a while now, I have a nice place for it all organised next to my Onyx rack. I can't wait to see what 2 pipes can do!

Re: Onyx 2 IR3 dual pipe Resolution Issue

I am not sure the thread description is correct at the moment to be honest, I think it is a dual raster manager issue not a dual pipe issue. As I understand it, a single graphics pipe is 1xGE, 1-4xRMs and a DG. A second pipe would consist of another GE,1-4xRMs and DG. I am sure someone will correct ...

Re: Onyx 2 IR3 dual pipe Resolution Issue

Yes, that is exactly what multiple RMs do - it splits the screen into vertical strips and renders alternate strips on each RM.

Re: Onyx 2 IR3 dual pipe Resolution Issue

Hi Irinikus, Before you attempt to fix your issue can you dump the contents of the GE EEPROM? /usr/gfx/KONA/bin/ireeprom -r -p 0 -f /usr/people/guest/ireeprom.bin and upload it. Mine is showing 1280x1024_60.vfo as you would expect as I have fixed my issue, it will be interesting to see what yours co...

Re: Onyx 2 IR3 dual pipe Resolution Issue

Yup, that is pretty much it - there is nothing too it really, hopefully it won't take you more than 10 minutes to sort it out.

Re: Onyx 2 IR3 dual pipe Resolution Issue

i am guessing that you can change the PROM default resolution from the PROM but this would still leave you with IRIX booting at 1920x1080 so I think booting in via serial console is going to be necessary. Don't worry to much, its not really that different from booting into IRIX and using a console. ...

Re: how things should be shipped properly

Three. A guy in Italy said that if WW3 kicks off, could I please nip over and wrap his house. :D Hmm, I suppose i should wrap myself in such circumstances... Nuke-proof wrapping available! Form an orderly queue. Maybe I should start wrapping Guam... :} Ian. Hehe - yes, I stand corrected. 3 it is.

Re: Onyx 2 Possible mid plane issue

That's not an unreasonable conclusion, but more than likely your system attempted to load 1920x1080_72 because that was the resolution set/used by the previous owner of your new GE-16. Hi - the system had been booted several times successfully in 1280x1024_60 with the new GE16 board. It was only wh...

I wanted to make a special mention to Dexter1 here - if there were a nuclear holocaust tomorrow only two things would survive: cockroaches and anything Dexter1 has sent you in the post!

Re: Onyx 2 Possible mid plane issue

Hi Irinikus, So my replacement GE16 board arrived yesterday, along with a nice couple of RM10s and a spare DG5-2 - Infinte Reality 3! ;o) Along the way I hope I have come across the answer to your problem also. Here is what I tried: Existing setup: GE14-2 (XG MAP RAM error - as detailed here: http:/...
