I am currently using Jitter for a project where a PC displays OpenGL graphics to multiple screens over 100m of Cat5 cables.
Whereas things seem to run stable for weeks when monitors are connected directly to the computer as soon as we use the KVM extenders, machines start to freeze on iregular intervals starting from half an our to a couple of days. Freezing usually means that you can still see the image but no animation occurs, which is obvious as the windows UI is non-reponsive either.
We use the MultiView AK500 transmitter / receiver system by Magenta research. On the PC side its a Pentium4 3.5Ghz, 2GB RAM and 2 PCIe Nvidia GeForce 6500 Graphics cards.
The people who are implementing the hardware say its Jitter crashing but we think that the extenders make the workings of the graphics card unstable.
I was wondering whether anyone has had similar experiences or experiences at all with using Max/Jitter and KVM extenders?
Also, can anyone tell me whether there is a debug version available for Max/Jitter to be able to determine whether Max actually crashes.
