How does WATCHOUT assign the outputs on the graphics card?

This article covers how you can change and set the display order on a graphics card.

Problem description:

  • How can you avoid unplugging and re-plugging each output on a WATCHOUT machine when the outputs don’t go in sequence?
  • After rebooting the media server, the outputs have changed the assigned numbers, from 1,2,3,4,5,6 to 1,2,5,6,3,4 for example

The assignment of the outputs is handled by the Windows operating system. Some graphics cards have a feature that will allow you to lock the output assignment. If your graphics card does not support this feature, you can use WATCHOUT´s Stage Display outputs to reflect the changes.
