  • To dongle or Not to dongle!

    I have everything on hand now to install my NX Express card and Broadcast. The Broadcast software is an upgrade version from Pro 4.5. I will be installing to a new computer. Do I have to install the old software first and will I have to use the old dongle?

    Something else.....this used to be a very active forum with lots of contributors. What happened?

    You can install the software without the dongle. No problems. But you need to use it when you run EDIUS.

        Do I understand correctly? When I use Edius, I will have the Pro4 dongle and the Broadcast dongle installed at the same time?

        Thanks,

          Yes - absolutely. Edius Pro4 dongle is meant to check that you have a license to run EDIUS 4 Pro. The Broadcast dongle is meant for EDIUS 4 Pro to activate the Broadcast modules. What I do is to buy a small USB hub - plug all the EDIUS related dongles (I have 3 of them plugged in right now) and then plug the USB hug into the computer.

            You can merge the dongles in to one . That way you have one Edius broadcast dongle and one empty one :)

              Of course, this isn't recommended by me - if you put all your eggs into the one basket and that basket is stolen, lost or stepped on, you will need to buy all new eggs...for everything.

                You make me laugh. Good example.

                  Yes.
                  I think it is up to usage. If you use a notebook often it makes more sense to have one.

                      I have seen a software (legal) somewhere that will copy the dongle's contents into the computer so that you can unplug the dongle and keep it inside a firesafe ... I haven't tried to hunt it down yet - but it exists.

                        Don't think that's legal. EdiusLM does this for you, but it will remove the license out of the dongle and put it on your computer...but if your computer dies, you're out of luck because the dongle will be empty and useless.

                          Not sure about that. Haven't got time to hunt down the software yet ... no incentive right now anyway.

                            It is illegal to duplicate the licenses found on the dongle.

                              Right - thanks for the education. I was thinking more for backup just in case - that's all.
