Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

I'd also not rule out using a laptop with a webcam. It's also simple and has a number of delivery options. Right, a laptop opens up a world of possibilities. However, we're trying to be small and inconspicuous. Sacrament meetings will be attended nominally, we don't want to obstruct view of the spe...

Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

However, doing broadcasts like I do them is not for the average member especially since we are not broadcasting sacrament meeting during Covid life. Having 2 stake conferences a year is one thing, but having 9 sacrament meetings every week is a completely different animal. I am trying to think of t...

Since there doesn't appear to be a post edit button on this form, here is a correction: firmware 2.4.7.

Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

Take a look at the white paper I just posted (9 Nov 2018) https://tech.lds.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=146&t=32747 Big thanks!! This write up is much appreciated. Though disappointing you had to produce it on your own time as a service. While we have *paid*, so called professionals, working for t...

Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

I've been reminded to post an update to our Vidiu woes. Sorry I haven't. I'm still against using the boxes, and would recommend an alternative whenever possible. Otherwise, I have found *some* success by sticking to these guidelines: 1) DO NOT let the firmware update beyond 2.7 2.4.7!! At least for ...

Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

Thanks all. While it's possible there is a hardware fault in the network wiring or the switch, I highly doubt it. Regardless, those are on my list of swap out for troubleshooting. If there is a cable fault, the link rate negotiated with the switch would be abnormally low and/or not work at all. Neit...

Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

Update on our Teradek Vidiu woes.... As previously mentioned, the unresponsive user interface is a constant problem on the stake center's network (firmware versions 3.0.3 and 2.7.x). The 2.7.x version let's us in more often than the newer 3.0.3. I plugged them into my home network, both units seemed...

Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

You might want to assign a static IP to the device. I think the current firewalls are pretty good about assigning IPs for a reasonable period of time (a day) but the old ones would assign for an hour. Having an IP change on you wouldn't be fun. The IP you mentioned in your first post is in the midd...

Re: Ready to smash the Teradek Vidiu; alternatives?

Did you add a switch to the network? Is it just a switch or a router/switch? Are you connected through RJ45 in chapel overflow, RJ45 on wall in AV room, or RJ45 on front of EmTech AV Rack in AV room? Have you tryed operating the VidiU on your home network (with DHCP addressing and correct subnet ma...
