getting the GPU setting to work with no monitor attached

HP Recommended
z4
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

hi all,

 

i have installed the sender on a windows 10 64 z4 workstation and i have installed the receiver on a client

 

i can connect to the sender if i change it to "comparitron" but if i set it to "gpu" all i get is a black screen when i try to connect via the receiver

 

i think this is because it needs an actual display hooked up to the sender if i set it to "gpu"

 

is there anyway round this?

 

thanks,

rob

Hi Rob,

 

There's a way around it. You could try the following:

 

- Edit the rgsenderconfig file located in the same install folder as your RGS sender.

- Uncomment the property below and set its value to 1:

   Rgsender.Compatibility.Displays.ForceEdidOnHeadless=1

- Then, restart your rgsender service for it to pick up the new information.

 

Another thing that some users do regarding headless senders is to use a small EDID emulator device that you can plug into your graphics card to emulate a monitor connected.

If that's something you'd be interested in, just make sure you purchase one that supports all the resolutions you need.

thanks Lizzy,

made the change

 

## Load an EDID on headless Windows system with Nvidia graphics. Once this property is enabled
## this EDID will not be unloaded until the property is disabled.
Rgsender.Compatibility.Displays.ForceEdidOnHeadless=1

 

once done that, restarted the service

 

ZCentral Remote Boost Sender Service

 

but still when i try to connect to the sender on a receiver i still get a blank screen
