Re: video problem in encoder tandberg EN5990

Try pulling the boards out and cleaning the connectors with DeOxIt, then reseating them.

Could be connectoritis, but I suspect it's a hardware issue.

Re: video problem in encoder tandberg EN5990

When you mention you "remove the plates and put them back on", exactly which plates do you mean?

Also if removing something then returning it back clears an issue, that points more to hardware than software.

Re: Disabling Windows Features Updates

The only official answer is the LTSC branch, but only if you are an enterprise customer. You need to get your head around the concept that Windows at a retail level is not an operating system as one used to purchase, but a service that operates as Microsoft likes it to operate, and thus updates are...

We could add it to the ever growing list of these and/or HD2/HD3 translators who are seemingly running without their primary on.

Despite its quirks the Platinum series Z rigs were not bad transmitters. I know of several that are still in service so many years later.

Re: Disabling Windows Features Updates

It may still download the updates but the reminders should end now.

Does anyone have an actual way to disable the windows 10 "features" updates? I've disabled the group policy, deleted the contents of the download folder that they supposedly download to. Google has been less than helpful, giving me results from 2015 first that aren't even applicable to thi...

You have a stuck button? Or the ground to the button panel has gone bad?
