    I guess I should be more patient. Just got a reply from Hawking. As I suspected, it was a settings issue. First, I needed to log in as Admin. Trying to do it from my usual login doesn't work, just...

    Legacy machine

    jb,

    I had a cat step on the start key on the keyboard once! But that doesn't explain your 8100 still being on after unplugging. While it is very old it might still be useful. If there is any kind...

    Hi all,

    Finally had a chance to try the new switch setting. Everything is cool! The "sync on green" setting did the trick. Maybe a different computer and/or video card would like one of the others...
