Hi,

 

I wasn't on the Forum for some time...

Just saw you message while googeling again abouth the celco. I turned it finally on, and it apears to be working. But how do I get teh immages in it? What computer or player is needed?

Do you still have the manual and software?

 

thanks

Celco was Linux and the Cineon was Irix I think.

 

They might have both been SGI Irix.

The CINEON should be IRIX 6.4

Actually I installed the CINEON software on a OXIGEN II running IRIX 6.5.

The software seems to work, but I can't see the CINEON, appearently IRIX 6.5 uses a different protocoll for the scasi port. I bought a IRIX 6.4 and maybe then everything will work,but till now I didn't find the time to find someone capable to install the new-old IRIX and try. Maybe I will have to buy an INDIGO, not sure if the problem is hardware or software...

And once the computer should see the cineon, I'm not sure if I will need some kind of serialnumber which I don't have...

 

For the MPX unfortunately I have no information at all, but the Mascine itself runns without error reports, and also the camera controller works. No Idea how to feed it with images thought...

 

thanks

Daniel
