  • Avid Unity not booting and sounds continuous two beeps

    We have an ancient Avid Unity (2 racks mirrored, main and slave).


    This morning the main rack had frozen and on reboot the main rack emits a continuous one pair beeps (sounds like an alarm) and the rack doesn't reboot at all - black screen.


    I noticed also that one of the fans had stopped, so I'm turning to you fabulous people to wonder whether any of you had come across this in the last few years. Is it likely to be power, CPU, motherboard or memory problems? I'm thinking that the lack of one of the main fans might have overheated the internals. Hopefully thet boot up disc will still be OK.


    We're trying to eek out a little more usage of Unity in the knowledge that we will have to upgrade to something far more simple in the next few months. We're only a small production company that tends to use only two Avid MC seats at one time.


    Many thanks, in hope!

  • Avid Unity Media Engine Software

  • reset password on Videoraid sr?

    Using a avid Videoraid SR 24TB/2 volumes raid 5, I had one drive go bad so I was going to pop it out but accidentally popped out the wrong drive. Put it back in but this took the entire volume offline. 
    No help from Avid since it's end of life. 
    Anyone have any ideas how to get the one drive or the volume back online so I can replace the bad drive?
    Also does anyone know how to reset the login and password thru network login?


  • Avid Videoraid SR power supply

    Anyone have a power supply off a Avid videoraid SR unit that they are not using, LOL! I need one.



  • Intel Optane drive memory

    I just found out that there is a new technology called Optane that "accelerates your HDD", so your normal drive runs nearly as much as a SSD, for a 70$US 32gb memory card.

    Check it out if you have a M.2 memory slot on your motherboard, looks like it may be worth it. I'll have this new setup pretty soon, will give it a try on a 10 TB HD. If it's as good as it says then I think it should make a big improvement on Avid projects, especially in multi-layer !!!

    Anybody working with this?

  • Nexis 2018.5 bug

    If I use the workspace duplicate button, the permissions are visually copied. However, once you actually create the workspace the duplicate does NOT have any permission set.

    Switching back to classic mode (Flash) the duplicate function works as expected.



  • HELP!!! Avid VideoRaid SR Controller front LED Lights off

    Hello, Can any one help!?  The VideoRaid SR Front Controller LED lights not working and the SR RAID drives missing from the  list. I am getting a 'MEDIA OFFLINE' status as all media stored on the SR are 'missing in action'

    This is VERY URGENT! I know that Avid does not support the VideoRaid SR anymore. But some of us paid so much to buy this system in the first place. Any information about what could be wrong will be very much appreciated as well as what could possibly be done to fix it.


  • Controller ID: 0 VD is now DEGRADED VD 1



    I just checked our AVID ISIS 5500 32TB and noticed this message:

    Controller ID: 0 VD is now DEGRADED VD 1

    I can see one drive with a red flashing light which i assume means the drive is dead or about to die, is that correct?

    Is it best to leave the ISIS switched on or to turn it off till support come out to repair/fix it (it might be a few weeks as i know the support contract lapsed)?



  • Can Old Unity Hard Drives Be Used As Standard Drives?

    I've seen (old) questions in this forum about replacing Unity hard drives with COTS drives, and see the warnings that the Unity drives have Avid firmware on them, so you can't use standard drives. 

    I have an opportunity to aquire some old Unity chassis with 1TB drives in them. Would those drives work as standard hard drives in a normal computer? I'm guessing a normal drive controller probably won't care about the Avid fw, but wondering if anyone has done this and knows for sure?
