4KScope/HDRScope Multiple Inputs

4k 1004KScope and HDRScope have the ability to use multiple inputs as individual inputs for some video capture boards (like AJA, Bluefish444 and some Blackmagic boards).  When setting it up this way, you will lose the ability to do multi cable input for dual link, QHD/4K and other modes.  Each input will be limited to one BNC.  This setup can be easily reverted when not needed.

4KScope/HDRScope Multi Input Mode

Setting up multi input mode on 4KScope/HDRScope is done by splitting your input board into 'virtual boards', normally 2, 4 or 8 per board, depending on the number of available inputs.

To change modes, you need to run DDRConfig and make three changes (with the scope closed):
 
1.  Go to the advanced tab, open the tree to VVW\Config and change MaxIntChannels = 1
DDRConfig Adv MaxIntChannels

2. Open the tree to VVW\Advanced\VVWUNC and change UseBothBoardChannels = 1

DDRConfig Adv UseBothBoardChannels

3. Click on the 'Internal' tab, and then the '+' to add up to four channels

DDRConfig Int AddChannels

 

Using Multi Input Mode

Once the above is setup, run 4KScope/HDRScope.  In the config, you will now be able to select "First Board" to "Fourth Board" to change inputs
