On today’s ChurchTechCast.com Q & A, questions on: ProPresenter with external drives, USB adapters, Pro5 multiple monitors

Here are the latest questions:

Mike Brock on TrinityDigitalMedia.com
Is it a good idea to propresenter information on an external hard drive? If so, what is the best way to do it?


Scott Wanzer via Email (in reference to getting a USB adapter working)
…We uninstalled and reinstalled, so the driver should be good

Our monitor is good

We’ve tried different HDMI cables

We’ve got a blue LED on the adapter

So I’m thinking the weak link is the adapter?

Thoughts?

Thanks!

Danny Thornton via email on pro presenter with multiple monitors:
…My question: I thought that I could control what the projector screen shows without the audience seeing the ProPresenter 5 program visible. Meaning I thought that I could go from video to black screen to powerpoint to black screen and on, without everyone seeing me manipulate the PP5 program. I am supposed to have this running by Monday morning.

I’m on a PC. Are you saying to push the Windows logo button + P and changing to which: PC only, Duplicate, Extend or Second Only. If it’s extend, do I move the screen to the second and then enlarge?
