Known issues:

- With version 3.1 the installer will prompt you to update the ATI drivers to version 10.10. If you have a unit with ATI Radeon HD 1950 or older cards installing this driver during the install process will cause those graphics card to become uninstalled in windows and fail to work. If you have a Hippotizer system with a 1950 card you must uncheck the option to update the ATI driver (to check the cards you have installed use the ATI catalyst control software to check the hardware).

If you have accidently installed the 10.10 drivers and need to re-install the previous drivers, use the following link to download 9.3 drivers. The software will still function correctly with the older drivers. ... version-93

- Installer detects Datapath drivers on GrassHopper and prompts user to update. User should just ignore the message.


- ZooKeeper installer can only continue with the installation if a ZooKeeper dongle is detected. Non ZooKeeper dongles cannot be used to install ZooKeeper.
- ZooKeeper install may report an error message with ModifySettings.exe, on post install and a problem pre-configuring settings code:6. When this error occurs, continue as normal. It does not appear to cause any issues.

Text Engine:
- Text document hicks when loading second page

- Relays dont work on UberPan slaves(render nodes)

Video Capture:
- Blackmagic Decklink cards are now supported in hippotizer, specifically the DeckLink SDI, DeckLink Duo and the DeckLink Studio. To use these cards with Hippotizer you need to have DeckLink 7.9.4 for Windows installed. If required, you can download it from; ... rd-drivers

Known Issue, if you enable disable the decklink input a large number of times (e.g. ~500 times) the decklink card may become unresponsive. i.e. will not display incoming signal. If this happens you need to shut down the system and restart it and don't enable/disable the bmagic input so much during your performance. This appears to be a limitation in the deckink card/driver.

-Datapath have a few new cards since the release of Hippotizer 3.0.14 SP1, to use the Dual HD-SDI card, Single DVI + 4 Composite Input Card or the 8x Composite Input Card you need to install updated Datapath vision drivers. for more infomation please refer to;

C:\hippotizerv3\thirdparty\Datapath Drivers\Readme\ReadMe.htm

-All Systems with Datapath PCIe capture cards should update the drivers to the version in the for the cards to work correctly.

Virtual Media Manager:
- If two partial media are exactly the same, Media Player on slave hippos fails to recognise one of them.
