I recommend leaving the "no HDMI signal message" as being generic (I love the simplicity of showing the Church Logo with no message) because there are many use cases as to why these devices could be used and why they may not get a signal from the HDMI input.

I'm a bit concerned about use of the church logo.

General Handbook 38.8.11:
The Church’s official logotype ... is to be used only for items approved by the Correlation Department at Church headquarters.

I ran a quick test with the HDMI unplugged from the jtech encoder. The Church Logo comes up for a few seconds and then goes away and the stream returns to the church default stream. It looks like the logo is not a stream so it drops out.

I have a remote. But since you have to be standing right in front of the switcher to gain line of sight, you might as well just push the button. I do not have an HDMI distribution system, so you also have to press the sound distribution panel buttons.
Ours is a wired remote to the switcher. The rack is not near the chapel.

Sorry I continue to ask questions. But do you setup different viewing url's for each ward in the church webcast page or do you use the same url with different event id's? Also can you set up reoccurring (every week) event or do you have to add event every week?

Yes

You only get one URL using the church webcast manager. You then schedule each meeting and they all show up on that URL if they are marked public (which is the default)

I obtained it from the media press kit. If they have an issue with me using the logo, they have my information and will reach out to me. I'm confident in the way the logo is being used would be acceptable, given when there is no stream you see the choir singing and other official church information.

New Firmware Release with a User Interface!

The new firmware adds a menu item called "Auto Configuration" which takes you to a new user interface where all you have to do is enter in the URL you get from http://webcast.churchofjesuschrist.org/ under the Teredek > Registered Devices > Remote Config URL button. You then check the Auto configuration enabled box and Save Configuration button.

That is all you need to do and you can begin scheduling your meetings using http://webcast.churchofjesuschrist.org/.

Another firmware update is in the works, but it will be next week sometime. This will add better monitoring and allow you to see how all your devices are performing in real-time on one dashboard. This will be an opt-in only feature since you will be sending metrics to a server. I will be providing the monitoring service free of charge.

The new firmware can be downloaded here: https://github.com/bretep/webcast-auto- ... tag/v1.0.2

Please consider staring the github repository and following the project or releases. This benefits you and me. You get to receive notifications on new releases and I get to see how helpful my firmware is to others.

bretep - I'm dying and am in need of some help with the configuration of the J-Tech JTD-220

Following your directions seemed very easy; to me, they were very clear and methodical. However, after several Resets, reloads of your up.rar, and re-configurations I still receive the Begin Encoding message in Meetinghouse Webcasting.

Did I miss something? After changing the IP, I set everything in ENCODER > MAINSTREAM to DISABLE, and in OSD > SUBSTREAM3 > ZONE 1 I set ZONE to ENABLE, TYPE to TXT, and pasted the REMOTE CONFIG URL from Meetinghouse Webcast into the TEXT field. I repeated these steps several times, on one iteration APPLYing and REBOOTing after each individual change. I have not yet been able to broadcast with the JTD-220. I did test my output from the AV2HDMI, and have audio and video going into the JTD-220.

Would you have time for phone consultation?
