Pandoras Box Player Multilicense

Postby Dennis Kuypers » Sat Dec 24, 2016 12:52 am

This post refers to Pandoras Box Version 5 Player PRO and Pandoras Box Version 6 Players

Dongles with a single player license can be stacked and enable one output and one sequence per dongle attached.
Dongles with multiple player licenses can only be stacked when using Pandoras Box Version 6 (not available to Version 5)
No other license types allow stacking (Manager, Server, Compact Player)

Per Player license stacked you get
  • one Output device
  • 1 Sequence
  • 4 video layers
  • 4 audio tracks

*** UPDATE ***

Hi everyone,

Multi-Licenses cannot be stacked within Version 5.
Version 6 allows to combine any amount of Player licenses no matter if these are single or multi-licenses.

hello!I have an issue with a Pandoras Box Player with a Nvidia quadro with a 4output license and WIN OS 8.1. I manage that player with a PB Manager running on a MSI Win 10 with a Nvidia 1080, I think.

So the Issue is: I send from the manager a test pattern from stock assets folder to the player client. without switch to fullscreen i m able to see the test pattern on client windowed. When I make fullscreen I get just black. no image on any output.

Also I don’t have preview on manager on versions 5.10 rev 13 and 14. Just with the last version 6 I have preview on manager but no image when I switch to full screen on player.

Thank uu I hope u can help me!

sounds like an EDID Problem.
Can you tell me if you are using Custom Resolutions?
Do you use Mosaic?
Please send screenshoots of Nvidia Display Config and the log files of Pandoras Box to Support.pandorasbox(at)

I know this issue when you have different refresh rates.
First monitor is one 60 another on 50.
Or sometimes one 60 another 59.95
Make Shure all the output have the same refresh rate.
Or make a mosaic mode. Then all get the same.

Best regards,
