CM9740-CC1 fails to switch live video to CM9740-MXB due to CM9740/60-VMCx version incompatibility.
Additional Symptoms Include:
- The CM9760-KBD-xx LCD indicates that live video switching can occur
- The CM9740-CC1 diagnostic screen indicates that the live video switching can occur
- The CM9740-MXB (Matrix Bay) displays the same time as the CM9740-CC1 which concludes that there is communication between the CM9740-CC1 and CM9740-MXB which rules out possible sercom port problem or RS422 cable problems.
