I’m currently using a streamdeck to send start/stop recording commands to the Pearl-2 via companion, so that I can have one button that starts recording both channels at the same time. I don’t want to set up a recorder to do this because I need to use automatic file upload to get two separate videos to my server as soon as recording is stopped. From my understanding, if I use a recorder it will record both channels in a format that merges the two video feeds together into one file and I can only seperate them in the pearl and for the workflow we have that just wont work.
The problem I am having with the streamdeck solution is that sometimes when I send the commmand it will start and stop the recording for each channel just fine and they will be in sync, but then sometimes only 1 channel will start and other times both will start and be in sync, but then when I send the stop command only 1 will stop and the other will keep recording even if I try to stop it using Epiphan live. This solution would be great for my first problem but it has to be consistent.
Anybody else having similar issues?
