Re: Indigo 2 and Galileo

Indycam now working thanks Galileo Jr thread and replacement of missing oscillators. But the video is very dim even when putting all settings to the maximum value. Since the link seems to be digital, could it be an effect of component aging in or around the sensor ? I remember it was also not very b...

Re: how things should be shipped properly

My Indigo2 came almost unpackaged and I was lucky to find intact front panel and only one cracked corner in the back. I received a poor Sun D1000 packed in a single layer of cardboard. The front frame was bent from shocks on the side, and the fragile front door latch and hinge hooks were all broken ...

Re: Galileo Jr.

Thanks, I had missed this thread since I searched only with board number. So there is a crystal killer hunting for Galileo boards.

Re: Galileo Jr.

I had that 030-8213-002, from a bad eBay seller who seemingly took cards from a scrap heap and sold them as working ones. It came up in my extreme Indigo2 and I could select the Indycam as a video source but it did not show up. Before tossing it, I examined both sides again with a lens and found les...

Re: looking for Training materials for old software

You can find a lot of tutorials online for Autodesk Alias, which is a descendent of Alias StudioTools StudioTools 11 runs on my Indigo 2, but I am stuck at the bottom of some steep learning curves for workflow, features, and user interface. Are more recent tutorials still usable if they are based o...

Re: WTB Octane 2

I have Onyx2 deskside too... but give it almost no uptime, it needs better displays, and my I2 is still good for simple tasks.
What do you think of my Octane 2 ? viewtopic.php?f=14&t=16721796&p=7307721

Re: Heater vs Octane

Should run straight water. Ethylene glycol is bad for the world and doesn't do anything good unless your house gets below 32* F. :D Our solar heating company uses REACH-compliant non-toxic product from http://glysofor.de/en/index.html . For tight packed systems like Octane, as there is no room for ...

Re: Convert mp4 video files to SGI Format

Can SGI Moviemaker create a short blank clip without former media, or someone share a sample, to examine it with ffmpeg or vlc on a linux box, then hopefully convert mp4 to the same format that Moviemaker will open ?

Re: Cool (open source) software you would like to see ported...

MIDI-support in IRIX is really easy. Just see man mdIntro and check the sample source code that comes with IRIX in /usr/share/src/dmedia/midi. Still interested in playing with PureData, I took time to rtfm, and compiled the simple scale demo. Its argument is a MIDI port name, which can be "Sof...

Re: DMedia puzzle

Consumer video toys went all HD and kept only HDMI output. How to down-convert their HDMI output to 259M SDI ? There is the ADVC G2 converter, but it is quite expensive for a hobbyist. Like jan-jaap, I want to do something with my S{G,D}I hardware, but only in SD with the Onyx2/DIVO/GVO and composit...

Re: how to repair Octane2 PSU ?

I had the Scythe fan already installed before rewiring and did not remember enough difference with the former Panaflo to try swapping them again. I need ear protection anyways as the other noisy SGI's are in the same room, then storage (2 Sun D1000) and network (Cisco switch 3508XL) have lots of fan...

Re: IRIX and multipath I/O for performance
