Renaming Sources/Destinations for Videohub

PostWed Mar 15, 2017 3:23 pm

Hello,

I'm wondering how to rename the Source and Destination in the Videohub. I'm using 6.3.4 and I can click on Edit Buttons but that only lets me change the icon and not the actual name. Where is that done?

The VideoHub Setup program will let you change settings, but will not change routing. The VideoHub control program will let you change routing, but not any settings.

Also, try using Telnet.
On Mac (google PC directions for establishing telnet) . . .
In terminal, type
telnet X.X.X.X 9990
(Where X.X.X.X is your router's IP address)

then type the port, a space, then the names you want in a text editor. Then cut/paste into terminal/telnet window with "OUTPUT LABELS:" at the top like so:

OUTPUT LABELS:
0 name 1
1 name 2
2 name 3
3 name 4
4 name 5
5 name 6
6 name 7
7 name 8
8 name 9
9 name 10
10 name 11


Note that the SDI Ports start with zero instead of 1

You can then maintain all of the naming in a text file, change when needed, edit, and change again very easily. The telnet capability makes it very easy to manage all of this, and make changes all at once.

You can also do the input labels like so:

INPUT LABELS:
0 CAM 1 01
1 CAM 2 02
2 CAM 3 03
3 CAM 4 04
71 BARS
10 VTR 1 11
11 VTR 2 12
29 S4 Stream 30
30 Fiber 1 Stream
31 Fiber 2 Stream
32 Fiber 3 Stream

Note that you can add in non-sequential items, and change only the items you want to change.
