big jit.window / 4 beamers / NVidia driver error


    Oct 24 2015 | 3:14 pm
    Hello, in some ways my setup is very similar to Brantiko : https://cycling74.com/forums/just-play-a-video-efficient/
    I want to display a big window 4096x768 across 4 XGA (1024x768) beamers. I have several videoplanes : - a big 1 in background, with a jit.movie playing 1 video (4096x768 ; 1 min ; photo JPEG 50% ; 20 fps = 270 MB) - 16 small in foreground. each is 220x270 has a jit.movie playing a small file (220x270 ; 8 sec ; photo jpeg 25% ; 15 fps ; 800 KB)
    I've just finished the patcher and everything was ok until I stress tested the machine with all the beamers on during several hours. Yesterday after 6 hours running without problem, an error occurred. Today the same problem came after 5 minutes.
    Here is the error message :
    "NVidia Open GL Driver : A TDR has been detected. The application must close. Error Code 7" There's a link to nvidia web site, it refers to TDR a Windows tool to prevent screen freezes...
    An other error today : "NVidia Open GL Driver : Unable to recover from a kernel exception. The application must close. Error Code 3"
    I'm actually downloading the last drivers from NVidia to see if it changes something...
    Someone has an idea ? Thanks Alain.
    ------ my setup : Core i7 Haswell 16 GB RAM SSD 256 GB GPU NVidia GTX 660 , 2 GB >> 4 XGA beamers Windows 8.1 Max 7.0.6 32 bits Quicktime 7.7.8

      My GTX660Ti had a similar issue under heavy load: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3007 Turned out to be a hardware failure.

      Ouchh... It sounds bad... I'll try the last drivers in case...
      Do you think I could have damage the GPU with my Patcher ?

      If a program damages the GPU the GPU was already faulty to start with. If you haven't been overclocking, then nothing you throw at it should break it.
      I replaced mine under warranty for a GTX670 when it happened.

      OK, that's what I thought. Thanks.
      Mine isn't under warranty anymore. I'll have to replace it, and I'm starting to wonder how. That's why I join an old topic : https://cycling74.com/forums/handling-8-video-outputs-with-1-computer-best-practices/

      I 'm wondering what s with that 660(ti) series... I broke 2 under warranty, made by MSI.

      Mine is made by EVGA.
