Introduction
This document provides information about the Cisco StadiumVision solution for all releases of Cisco
StadiumVision Director Release 4.1. It includes hardware and software requirements, new and changed
features, installation and upgrade information, known issues, and defects.
This document is for Cisco StadiumVision system administrators and technical field engineers who are
responsible for designing and deploying the Cisco StadiumVision solution. Readers of this document
should be familiar with basic IP networking technology and the Cisco StadiumVision solution.
Key Considerations for This Release
Note
This section provides a highlight of several important considerations for Cisco StadiumVision Director
Release 4.1. Be sure to read the entire release note to obtain all relevant information for the release.
•
Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1.0-508 (SP1) is considered a mandatory upgrade from
Release 4.1.0-419.
•
The Platform 2 server (Cisco UCS C200) is no longer supported in Release 4.1 due to memory and
performance limitations.
Cisco StadiumVision Director is supported in a virtual server environment or on the Platform 3
(Cisco UCS C220) as a bare metal install.
For more information about migrating, see the “Migrating From Platform 2 Servers to a Virtual
Environment” module in the Cisco StadiumVision Director Software Installation and Upgrade
Guide, Release 4.1.
•
A new auto-registration configuration is required after you install Release 4.1 and before you reboot
your SV-4K and DMP-2K devices. For more information, see the “Multi-Firmware Version Upgrade
on the SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Player” section on page 33.
•
The SV-4K and DMP-2K media player firmware can render most unicode characters as part of the
DMP system fonts. This means that the font is available as a substitution font to external content
sources such as HTML pages and feeds that might not explicitly reference web fonts in their CSS.
•
There is a new URL for download of the SV-4K and DMP-2K production firmware.

System Requirements for Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
•
DMP-2K considerations:
– The DMP-2K is supported in production environments beginning in Release 4.1.0-419 and later
releases.
– In prior firmware versions, the DMP does not negotiate 30W of power from the switch port and
the DMP fails to turn on or otherwise displays unexpected behavior (CSCuy39197). This defect
is resolved in Release 4.1.0-419 with firmware version 6.0.83. However, the following
guidelines must be followed when deploying a new DMP-2K for the first time:
Caution
For initial deployment of a new DMP-2K, be sure that:
—No other accessories are attached to the DMP-2K.
—You are using standard Category 5e or 6 cabling up to 100 m in length.
– The DMP-2K does not support any content with 4K resolution.
– The DHCP Option 60 Vendor Class Identifier string for new, factory-delivered DMP-2Ks is
“Cisco DMP-2K”.
– HDMI-In encoder features are not supported on the DMP-2K.
– The DMP-2K uses the same firmware as the SV-4K.
– The DMP-2K has less total storage capacity (64 GB) than the SV-4K (120 GB). Available
storage space on the DMP-2K is 65536 MB.
– The DMP-2K has 2 GB RAM compared with 3 GB RAM on the SV-4K. This can make a
difference in how the same content might play on different media player models. This difference
might more likely be seen when playing HTML pass-through (URL) content.
•
Release 4.1 introduces support for content with 4K resolution for video content only on the SV-4K
media player. Graphics content remains capable of resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 only.
•
The new Cisco Solution Support Service is now available for Cisco StadiumVision.

Internationalization and Localization
Caution
A Cisco StadiumVision Director system that is using language support from Release 4.0.0-707 (SP2) or
Release 4.0.0-732 (SP3), will lose that support when first upgraded to Release 4.1, until language packs
for the new release are installed. For more information, see the “Language Packs for Localization”
section on page 21.
Internationalization (i18n)
Internationalization (known as i18n) support refers to the software infrastructure that is designed to
accommodate multiple language translations (localization) without requiring additional engineering
changes to that software.
The Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1 software supports i18n for the following general areas of
the solution:
•
Control Panel in Cisco StadiumVision Director
•
Dynamic Menu Board application
•
Management Dashboard in Cisco StadiumVision Director
•
IP Phone user interface
•
Software Manager
•
TV user interface
Localization (L10n)
Localization (known as L10n) refers to the implementation of the specific regional language translation
support within a software interface that has been designed for i18n. In Cisco StadiumVision Director
Release 4.1 English is the default language for the Cisco StadiumVision solution.
Note
Certain locales are not supported in Release 4.1, such as right-to-left languages.
Release Notes for Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
20
Internationalization and Localization
Language Packs for Localization
Note
Language packs are release-specific. They are not available with the initial release of Cisco
StadiumVision Director Release 4.1. You can install available language packs for Release 4.1, after you
have installed or upgraded to Release 4.1, and when the 4.1 version of the language pack for the desired
language is available.
An update to the initial set of language packs has been released to support localization fixes in Cisco
StadiumVision Director Release 4.1.0-508 (SP1). Although the latest release of language packs can be
installed with Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1.0-419, you need to upgrade to
Release 4.1.0-508 first to get the full benefits of the localization changes.
Cisco StadiumVision Director provides increased flexibility to upload and install only the specific
language(s) that you want to support through the independent installation of Language Packs. The
upload and installation of the language packs is performed using the Software Manager from the Cisco
StadiumVision Director main menu. For more information about how to install language packs, see the
Cisco StadiumVision Director Software Installation and Upgrade Guide, Release 4.1.
Caution
A Cisco StadiumVision Director system that is using language support from Release 4.0.0-707 (SP2) or
Release 4.0.0-732 (SP3) will lose that support when first upgraded to Release 4.1, until language packs
for Release 4.1 are available and installed.
The supported languages in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1.0-419 and later are:
•
Deutsch (de_DE)
•
English (en_US). This is the default locale in all Cisco StadiumVision Director releases.
•
French (fr_FR)
•
Portuguese (pt_BR)
•
Russian (ru_RU)
•
Simplified Chinese (zh_CN)
•
Spanish (es_ES)
•
Swedish (sv_SE)
•
Traditional Chinese (zh_TW)
•
Turkish (tr_TR)

Release Notes for Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
23
New and Changed Information in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
4K Video Encoding Guidelines
Note
Be sure to test the devices that you plan to connect to the SV-4K HDMI-In port to stream content for
support of HDCP. Most Mac OS and Windows laptops should work for HDMI-In video encoding for
non-copy-protected content. It is up to the device manufacturer and OS whether or not this is supported.
Before preparing 4K video content for the SV-4K media player, be sure that your content meets the
following requirements:
•
Video encoding—H.265 High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).
•
H.265 version 1 profiles only—Main and Main 10.
•
Video encode bit rate (vbitrate)—2000 to 25000 Kbps.
•
Maximum streaming bit rate (with HDMI-In encoding)—Two times the video encode bit rate is
recommended.
•
Constant Bit Rate (CBR)—Recommended for all local video on the SV-4K.
For more information about content guidelines, see the Cisco StadiumVision Content Creation Design
and Specification Guide.
4K Video Restrictions
Before preparing 4K video content for the SV-4K media player, consider the following restrictions:
•
H.264 video encoding is not supported. Be sure that your content tools support H.265 encoding.
•
Display of dual 4K video regions is not supported.
The 4K video region should be played in the primary video region only. A secondary video region
can support up to HD (1920x1080) video resolution.
•
4K video can be displayed in full ultra HD resolution (3840x2160) when using any of the Cisco
StadiumVision Director templates using the primary video region.
•
Video with 4K resolution is not supported for HDMI-In streaming on the SV-4K.
•
No luma key can be applied to 4K video. Luma keying is only supported with 4K for dual video
when an HD video in the secondary region uses a luma key over a 4K video in the primary region.
•
The Screen Template editor in Cisco StadiumVision Director presents all region sizes based on an
HD 1920x1080 canvas size—do not configure templates based on the ultra HD size of 3840x2160
when using a 4K display.
Tip
•
The best practice when using any templates with native 4K video, is to design all content/regions
for HD 1920x1080. The image content that is displayed with the 4K video will resize
proportionally to a 3840x2160 canvas size automatically.
If you are using a 4K display, you must configure a fixed resolution value of 3840x2160x60p in the
sv4k.videoMode serial command in the TV display specification (Figure 2).

WHY USE IT
Certain venues might encounter network conditions requiring a change in this value to properly tune
multicast video operation.
WHERE TO CONFIGURE IT
Go to Management Dashboard > SV Director Configuration > System Configuration > Global
DMP Settings > SV-DMP Common Settings and configure a new value in milliseconds for the “Video
tune-in timeout” property. After you change and refresh the property value, you must reboot the DMP(s).
New HTML5 Rendition Engine for the SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Player

New and Changed Information in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
Portrait Mode Content Renditions for SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Players (Beta Feature Only)
Caution
Portrait mode rendition support is introduced as a Beta feature. As a Beta feature, the portrait mode
functionality is not fully tested or supported. Therefore, it is not intended for production environments
due to the potential of unexpected behavior.
WHAT IS IT
Portrait mode is a new rendition mode enabled by serial command for TV displays controlled by SV-4K
or DMP-2K media players. It allows the DMPs to automatically rotate content for proper orientation on
vertically-positioned displays.
Consider the following restrictions:
•
Portrait mode is not supported with HDMI-In encoding or streaming on the SV-4K.
•
Certain startup and diagnostic screens do not rotate and appear cut off on the display.
WHY USE IT
Use portrait mode for vertical TV displays to test auto-rotation of content that would otherwise be
improperly cut off and displayed sideways with the default landscape orientation.
WHERE TO CONFIGURE IT
Go to Control Panel > Setup > Devices > Display Specifications and select or add your display. In the
Serial Commands panel, add the “dmp.portrait” command and set it to true.
Note
The use of portrait mode implies that your video mode (sv4k.videoMode) is set to 1920x1080x60p and
that you are using templates designed for content up to 1920 pixels high and 1080 pixels wide. The
default canvas will still show horizontal orientation, but you can add regions that extend beyond the
canvas.

New and Changed Information in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
PTP Master Election Per VLAN for SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Players
WHAT IS IT
Feature that implements a new Precision Time Protocol (PTP) Time To Live (TTL) setting that controls
the number of VLANs that can be crossed for selection of a PTP master. The default value of 1 means
that each VLAN will elect its own PTP master.
WHY USE IT
Best practice is to retain the default value of 1 for election of a PTP master per video wall. With a
TTL > 1, degradation in local video synchronization can occur.
WHERE TO CONFIGURE IT
FOR MORE INFORMATION
See the “Configuring the Cisco StadiumVision Director Server System Settings” module in the Cisco
StadiumVision Director Server Administration Guide, Release 4.1.
SNMP Agent Service for the SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Player
WHAT IS IT
The Start SNMP Agent Service is a new common DMP setting for the SV-4K and DMP-2K media
player that uses port 161 for both input/output on the device. The service supports SNMPv1 and
SNMPv2 and GET operations. You can use the snmpwalk command to retrieve MIB values. SNMP traps
are not supported.
Release Notes for Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
32
New and Changed Information in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
WHY USE IT
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) Agent Service should be enabled as determined by
the venue’s requirements for the exchange of device management information in their network.
WHERE TO CONFIGURE IT
SV-4K and DMP-2K System Font Support
The SV-4K and DMP-2K media player firmware can render most unicode characters as part of the DMP
system fonts. This means that the font is available as a substitution font to external content sources such
as HTML pages and feeds that might not explicitly reference fonts in their CSS.
Multi-Firmware Version Upgrade on the SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Player
Caution
Immediately after installing Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1, you must configure the new
auto-registration settings in the Management Dashboard described here and in the “Upgrading the
SV-4K and DMP-2K Firmware” module of the Cisco StadiumVision Director Software Installation and
Release Notes for Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
33
New and Changed Information in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
Upgrade Guide, Release 4.1.
Failure to perform this configuration can cause the media player to repeatedly boot.
WHAT IS IT
•
A new auto-registration process that preserves a required firmware upgrade sequence in Release 4.1
for the SV-4K and DMP-2K media player.
•
Introduces concept of base firmware version, in addition to the current production firmware version.
– Base firmware—A prerequisite firmware version that is required before provisioning of the
production firmware version. Can be version 5.1.52, 5.1.65, or 5.1.68.1.
– Production firmware version—Firmware version required to operate the media player in
Release 4.1.
•
With proper configuration, allows the run-time software to identify the existing firmware version on
the device, automatically provision the base firmware (as required), and provision the production
firmware version.
WHY IT IS REQUIRED
Early versions of media player firmware (such as on factory-shipped devices) are not supported for direct
upgrade to the production firmware version in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1.
The Multi-Firmware Version Upgrade feature automates this upgrade sequence as required to simplify
the process.
WHERE TO CONFIGURE IT
Go to Management Dashboard > SV Director Configuration > System Configuration > Auto
Registration Settings and configure the four required properties shown in Figure 4 and according to
Table 18.
Tip
For upgrades from devices with firmware version 5.1.52, 5.1.65, or 5.1.68.1, you can simply select that
existing firmware as your “Base firmware image to use” since that firmware version is already uploaded
to Cisco StadiumVision Director and is a valid prerequisite firmware version. Then, type the
corresponding firmware version number in the “base.version” field.

New and Changed Information in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1
Backup Task Behavior
The backup task can now run even while an event script is running. As part of this change, the database
is no longer optimized or repaired during the backup process—a new TUI option is added to run database
maintenance manually if needed.
Although it is not expected that database maintenance should be needed on a regular basis, a possible
symptom could be slow performance indicating a need to run database maintenance.
Tip
You can look at the backup log (/var/log/svd-config/backup-YYYMMddHHMMSSz.log) to see if the table
updates are “OK” and up-to-date. If not, then use the TUI option to run database maintenance. For more
information, see the “StadiumVision Server Administration Menu: Database Maintenance” section on
page 37.
Media Player Storage
Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1 reduces the storage required for SV-4K and DMP-2K content
on the Cisco StadiumVision Director server.
No configuration is required for this enhancement.
Text Utility Interface
The following Text Utility Interface (TUI) changes are introduced:
•
Services Control Menu: Network Time Sync, page 36
•
StadiumVision Server Administration Menu: Database Maintenance, page 37
Services Control Menu: Network Time Sync
The Services Control menu has been modified to add the “Network Time Sync” option.
WHAT IS IT
A new TUI option that allows you to independently start and stop the network time service (ntpd) in
Cisco StadiumVision Director. You also can check status of the service.
WHY USE IT
If for some reason the ntpd service does not start after a server reboot or power failure, this provides a
more convenient way to restart it. Prior to this option, you had to rely on editing the ntp.conf file to
initiate a restart.

New Firmware Configuration for the SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Player
Caution
Immediately after installing Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1, you must configure the new
auto-registration settings in the Management Dashboard to install the firmware on the DMPs. Failure to
perform this new configuration can cause the media player to repeatedly boot.
In Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1, the SV-4K and DMP-2K media players require that a
minimum—or base—firmware version is provisioned before they can be upgraded to the production
firmware version supported in Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1.
A new auto-registration configuration requirement and feature is introduced to ensure that this required
firmware upgrade sequence is automatically preserved for affected media players in the system.
For more information, see the “Multi-Firmware Version Upgrade on the SV-4K and DMP-2K Media
Player” section on page 33. This also is documented in the “Upgrading the SV-4K and DMP-2K
Firmware” module of the Cisco StadiumVision Director Software Installation and Upgrade Guide,
Release 4.1.
Firmware Download for the SV-4K and DMP-2K Media Player
The SV-4K and DMP-2K media player firmware image is not bundled with the Cisco StadiumVision
Director software.
Tip
Be sure to download the firmware to a device that you also can use to access the Cisco StadiumVision
Director software.

Limitations and Restrictions
Contact your Cisco Systems representative for the “How to Download SV-4K Firmware” document,
available to qualified Cisco StadiumVision partners.
Limitations and Restrictions
When using Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1, be aware of the following limitations and
restrictions:
Caution
Proof of play raw data repository in /var/sv/pofp/raw directory is not part of the backup process. In
normal operation, a completed script with a green dot already has a copy of the raw data and is part of
the backup data. No further action is needed aside from generating the PoP report. For completed scripts
that do not have a green dot, it is very important to investigate or call for support within 60 days of the
event, after which time the PoP messages in the raw directory will be deleted.
•
If you have previously accessed a different Cisco StadiumVision Director version on your computer,
sometimes unexpected behavior or warnings arise, or you might access an older version of the
interface. In this case, and especially after an upgrade, you must clear your browser cache.
•
The first release of Cisco StadiumVision Director Release 4.1 implements the infrastructure only to
support i18n and L10n to support the independent installation of other language packs with Cisco
StadiumVision Director Release 4.1 as they become available.
•
Cisco StadiumVision Director does not support internationalization for back-end messaging.
•
Non-English characters are not supported as a Cisco StadiumVision Director login credential.
•
Multi-user support in Cisco StadiumVision Director is limited to script editing only. No other
Control Panel functions for templates, zones, groups, and playlists support a multi-user
environment, and these areas can be deleted by other users. However, users are notified about
potential impact due to currently locked scripts and are prompted for confirmation of deletion and
given an option to use instant messaging to coordinate with the script owner.
•
No more than 10 user sessions can be supported at any one time in the Management Dashboard and
Control Panel areas. The system does not prevent more than 10 sessions to be opened, so you need
to be careful that you do not exceed this limit.
•
No more than 50 staging threads can be processing in Cisco StadiumVision Director at any one time.
The default maximum is 10. The maximum is configured using the “stagingThreadNum” registry
found under the Tools > Advanced > Registry section of the Management Dashboard.
Note
If auto-registration is enabled and a new DMP is detected, then Cisco StadiumVision Director
initiates staging and always uses 50 as the maximum value. In this case, the stagingThreadNum
registry setting is ignored and remains unchanged.

Media Player Maintenance Recommendations
To avoid unexpected behavior and maintain normal operation of your devices, it is highly recommended
that you perform a soft reboot of all of the media players in your system:
•
Cisco DMP 4310G—Weekly.
•
SV-4K—Weekly.
•
DMP-2K—Every 5 days.
You can reboot DMPs manually or configure a periodic task to run automatically. Remember that the
automatic scheduled task applies globally to all media players in the system.
Note
Before you perform a reboot, be sure that there are not any active scripts running.
For more information see the “How to Configure the Reboot DMP System Task From the Management
Dashboard” task note.
System Utilization Values
Measurement units for storage in Cisco StadiumVision Director are based on a KB equivalent of 1024
bytes [known as a kibibyte )KiB)], not 1000 bytes.
Therefore, a notation of MB actually means 1,048,576 (1024 x 1024) bytes in Cisco StadiumVision
Director.

Caveats
CSCuy49935—Sometimes saving a change in the Management Dashboard does not propagate to the DMP.
Symptom Changes made in the Management Dashboard are not always sent to the DMP. If multiple
changes made then the previous change appears to be the one that is saved.
Conditions The following steps recreate the conditions when this defect occurs:
1.
Go to the Management Dashboard.
2.
Go to SV Director Configuration > System Configuration > Global DMP Settings > SV-4K
Settings.
3.
Change the Timezone to another value.
4.
Reboot the DMP.
5.
If the behavior occurs where the change is not sent to the DMP:
a. Change the Timezone to a new value.
b. Reboot the DMP again.
Workaround Restart StadiumVision Director Services.
CSCuz49064—Widgets fail to display data integration when a bound XML value is blank.
Symptom If an XML data source has a blank result such as <data></data>, then that field simply shows
up blank in the widget designer. However, on the SV-4K it breaks multiple fields in the widget. The XML
payload is randomized, so the order of transmission of elements is unknown. The actual behavior is that
all fields after the null value are broken.
Workaround Use TextArea instead of T2S elements to avoid this defect.
CSCuz44956—Scoreboard controller / clock fails to process when mule is overwhelmed.
Symptom When Data Integration application (svd-broker) is overwhelmed by requests, the broker will
not process game scores or game clocks, which need to be polled “reliably” every 1 second without
conflicts.
Workaround Check affected widgets to be sure that they are not using the Data Pull component. Need to
use multicast type payload for reliable scoreboard / clock operation. Otherwise, there is no workaround.
CSCuy88169—JSON format in broker does not support arrays at "root" level.
Symptom When Creating a generic data source in JSON format, if the JSON file starts with [ , then SVD
will give an "Invalid JSON provided as payload for upload. EB00011" error while trying to upload the
sample JSON file in the field mapping tab.
Workaround Add {"Array": at the start of the JSON data before [ and at the end add }.

Caveats
CSCuy10156—Scheduler - Editing a running event causes multiple staging.
Symptom User is allowed to edit the event, change the details of the event even after the event fires off,
and each time the edited event get saved, staging happens at the back end. The event is saved with the
very last changes made from the scheduler side. Multiple concurrent events are created in the Control
Panel because of the multiple edits in the Scheduler for the event. It was observed that only the last
instance is in the “running” state, and other instances are being blocked.
Conditions The following steps recreate the conditions when this defect occurs:
1.
Go to the Scheduler.
2.
Schedule an event with heavy content (large video files).
3.
Try to edit the event when the event starts - within the first 60 seconds after the event kicks off.
Workaround There is no workaround.

Caveats
CSCuy14487—Recurring events-boundary value is not consistent for “after” option.
Symptom Recurring events-boundary value for 'after' should change according to the options user selects
for weekly and daily events but it does not always update correctly.
Conditions The following steps recreate the conditions when this defect occurs:
1.
Open the scheduler and click on any date to schedule an event.
2.
Click Repeat Event to open the repeat event section.
3.
Select the daily event option and try the following steps:
a. Set the 'repeat every' value to 1.
The maximum occurrences that can be scheduled is 365 since any scheduled event cannot span
for more than year as per design.
b. Set the 'repeat every' value to 2.
In this case, the maximum value should be changed to half of 365, but it stays at 365. The
scheduled events spans for two years which is not allowed as per design.
4.
Select the weekly event option and try the following steps:
a. Set the 'repeat every' value to 1.
b. Select one day of the week.
The boundary value for 'after' for this combination is 52 (the maximum occurrences that can be
scheduled is 52 since any scheduled event cannot span for more than 365 days as per design).
c. Keep the value 1 for 'repeat every' and choose more than one day of the week. The maximum
occurrence scheduled should be double, but scheduler wont allow more than 52.
Workaround When scheduling weekly events for more than a year, use the ‘End By’ option instead of the
‘after’ option.
CSCuy25570—Mute/Volume 0 on Internal volume strategy is set to 13.
Symptom When using internal volume strategy and setting 0 volume level (either by IR or IP Phone) the
volume will go to level 13 instead of 0. The volume does not get muted; instead, it drops to a still-audible
level. The same occurs if the volume is currently at 5 and you press volume down, it jumps to 13.
Conditions The following steps recreate the conditions when this defect occurs:
1.
Create a display specification where the volume strategy is set to “Internal.”
2.
Assign one or more SV-4K or DMP-2K devices to that display spec.
3.
Restart the runtime on the assigned DMPs.
4.
Go to the TVs connected to those DMPs, and using the TV manufacturer's IR controller, set the
volume to 100%.
5.
Using the DMP IR controller, raise the volume to a high level (anywhere from 50% to 100%), you
can check the volume level by running a Get Status command in the Management Dashboard and
looking at the display data.
6.
Press Mute.

Workaround There is no workaround.
CSCuy25798—BackupTask and manual backup removes DMPs from active script.
Symptom Sometimes the scheduled BackupTask or manual backup removes DMPs from an active script.
Workaround Stop any running scripts before running the backup task and start the scripts only after the
backup task is run.
CSCuw54955—Backup restore sometimes fail to copy saved firmware to SVD server location.
Symptom After performing a backup restore process, all of the firmware files present on the backup are
not restored in the dashboard. This occurs intermittently.
Workaround User will need to upload the firmware files again in order to use them.
CSCux47258—SV-4K: When Insignia TV is powered on it may cause DMP to reboot.
Symptom SV-4K: When the Insignia TV is powered on, it may cause the DMP to reboot. This behavior
only occurs if resolution is set to auto-detect. This is a firmware issue.
Workaround In the display specification, set the resolution to "1920x1080x60p" instead of using
auto-detect.
CSCux41638—SV-4K: The ptp.html page only shows neighbors with PTP TTL=1.
Symptom SV-4K: The ptp.html page only shows neighbors with PTP TTL=1.
Conditions The following steps recreate the conditions when this defect occurs:
1.
In the Management Dashboard, the "PTP time-to-live" setting is > 1.
2.
Launch the page at "http://x.x.x.x/ptp.html where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the DMP.
Notice that this page only shows DMPs that are within 1 hop (TTL = 1). DMPs that are > 1 hop
(TTL > 1) is not shown. This is a firmware limitation.
Workaround Choose a DMP in each hop and bring up the ptp.html page to view PTP status of DMPs
within that hop.
CSCux38701—SV-4K: Status - CPU usage - should display accurate information.
Symptom Only integer values are shown on the Dashboard for CPU usage. CPU usage always shows zero
