    NDI Scan Converter on Start-Up?

    Hi folks,

    I'm trying to set up a bit of an odd usage of NDI. We've been using the tools for eSports production for a while and they are great, but I have just moved some equipment around and I'm trying to use Scan Converter as a network monitor to do away with a local screen for a VR simulator. So, what I'm trying to do is to get Scan Converter to load and send the desktop immediately on boot. Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    One way to do that would be to use the Windows Task Scheduler.

    Or put a shortcut to it in the Windows Startup folder?

    Open an Explorer window and type 'shell:common startup' (no quotes) in the path bar to get to the correct location on the system.

    Hi Kanep,

    Thanks, yes we've got Scan Converter starting up no problem - however, it needs to be told to select the Desktop before it will send any output...

    Doesn't it remember the selections it last used?

    I use that on task scheduler. I have discover that we have to open first to make the settings correct, exit and reboot. I use that in many computers.
