i experience problems in a setup where i have a tiBook connected to a
g5; both hava a patch with the jitter network objects (as 'appatched'
below), with corresponding port settings.
mainly, i send control messages from the tiBook to the G5, and
matrices in the opposite direction (low res, low framerate).
in normal use, this works fine.
but the problem appears in 'unnormal' use:
for this performance, i need to disconnect my tiBook from the
network, walk to a different room, and reconnect.
even that works fine - unless i forget to switch of the matrix-
sending from the G5.
if the G5 keeps sending matrices while the tiBook is disconnected,
the G5 will produce a stack overflow @ the moment that the tiBook is
when i resume processing, the G5 will work normally again, but the
connection to the tiBook won't work anymore.
when i then restart max on the G5, it will crash at the moment of
what would help me is a way to make sure that the connection exists
(to interrupt the streaming when it is gone); this is not correctly
reported from the net-objects, it seems.
any other tips to make this 'fool safe'?
