  • i cannot change the input from camera 1 to automatic.

    From alpha10 onwards there is no „automatic“. You are presented with the devices discovered by the system. Automatic was just a workaround before. Some devices itself report them as camera, but that is just to the fact how the vendor presents them.

    Check as outlined above with, if your device is detracted.

    You also might disconnect the grabber, refresh the grabber screen. Then either no grabber discovered or your camera should be presented. If you now connect your grabber, refresh the screen again, our grabber should show up in addition. If there is no additional grabber presented you need to get your grabber recognized by the system.

  • all sorted now , it wasn't the programming but the installation for some reason my amp was nlocking signal to the capture device all working now..
