    Quick question about long term use of minimad

    by Teunkneus » Tue Jan 08, 2019 11:00 am

    If I use minimad for a long term solution (1year or longer) what are things to keep in mind?

    - Will this be stable?
    - Will power on/of on daily schedule be a problem? (or keep it running and shut down projector)
    - How many times will the push the ... button pop-up? (because I want to hide the minimad somewhere out of sight.

    Maybe other things i'm forgetting.

    Other option would be using a macmini, but found out these will also give some issues on long term.

    I have two MiniMads and I've noticed both of them require restarts every couple of days. Output simply stops. I have midi controllers connected to both units (microModul8) and their LEDs light up as if the Minimad is still stepping through my sequences, but output eventually stops - without any change to the physical cabling or power. Restarting the MiniMad always fixes it, though with a 30-second startup time.

    I've encountered this issue when the MiniMads are configured for MadLight (DMX/Artnet), but have yet to try it for media on a projector. So this may be specific to MadLight.

    It isn't a big deal for my use case but it may be for yours. I've never seen it fail in the first 24 hours.

    What version of MadMapper / miniMAD do you use?
