    I thought the MS convention was to reference the path in the registry.

    Or, that it's the less likely of two possibilities? (the other being that the user decides to install the Sony Clip Browser software somewhere else, like another drive/folder path)

    At least there's a better chance that the Start menu shortcut won't be changed from its default position.

    I just figured out what's going on. When the Clip Browser installs, it writes a folder and "start" icon in the START MENU/PROGRAMS/SONY/ directory. I keep all of these start buttons in organized subdirectories like VIDEO, AUDIO, SYSTEM, etc.

    As soon as I move the "Start Menu/Sony/Clipbrowser" start menu item into the VIDEO sub-directory, Edius loses its link to the clip browser. Apparently, the Edius link is to the START MENU/SONY/clipbrowser directory, rather than the actual Program Files entry. This seems a little silly to me. Rather poor programming.

    Next time it happens, please try and do something "EDIUS Broadcast" specific - namely, with the EDIUS bin, directly import an EX1 MP4 file. See if EDIUS complains about the format. I want to know if there's an issue between EDIUS and the licenses on your dongle.

    Ok lets ask if anybody else using EX browser is experiencing this.
    Maybe we can shed some light on this issue.

    hmmm...well, I hate to interrupt the thought/theory, but, I just lost the clipbrowser again and didn't ever remove the dongle.

    What did I do?
    1-I removed an external drive with some edius projects on it and re-installed it.

    2-I removed and inserted an SxS card. Dragged the XDCAM BPAV folder to the external drive. Dragged the .mp4 file into the Edius bin and never opened the clip browser. Then I thought to check and it was gone from the TOOLS menu.

    At this point, I don't really care. The workflow I now use apparently doesn't require the clip browser.

    What happens if you restart your machine firrst and then plugin the broadcast dongle?

    At any rate, thanx for your time.
    Perhaps, once the 30 day trial has expired, Edius won't start without the dongle and the problem will be solved, defacto. ;o)

    Hmm that is strange. Maybe that is why I have not seen it just now.

    No. I wouldn't expect that to work.
    And the problem doesn't recur every time. It seems random.

    Steve,
    You did not read and understand my post, sir. I fully expect that Edius will revert to the Pro version without the dongle. However, the situation is that when I re-insert the dongle, Edius broadcast does not show the Clipbrowser.

    Are you suggesting that if I forget to insert the dongle, Edius Broadcast is permanently disabled as far as seeing the clipbrowser?

    Witout the broadcast dongle EDIUS wil start but will go in to pro mode.

    SO you are not loosing anything it is just that Edius Pro does not support the EX natively so the is why you are not seeing the E software.
    As soon as you plug-in your dongle and start EDIUS again you will see the ex browser software again.

    So this is not the fault of Edius but user error.

    If you want to use both system at the same time better buy another broadcast dongle.

    I have Edius installed on a laptop and a workstation. I continually swap the dongle from one to the other, sometimes starting Edius and forgetting the dongle. Since I'm still under the 30 day trial, Edius will start, but no Clip Browser. That's ok and expected without the dongle. I think the problem is that Edius loses its link to the ClipBrowser, so, when I remember to put the dongle in and restart edius, the link is gone.

    There is a readme file with the Clip browser DL that states;

    "Please note:
    The newest version of the XDCAM EX ClipBrowser software has been referred to as "version 1.1".
    The actual version information of the files is version 1.01."
