2 x HOG PC failover config

Is it possible to run HogPC with a second PC in a console failover config? Can it work with a switch and only one DMX widget?

Been searching old threads but can´t find info on this.

    You can have a tracking server backup config.
    Depending on your net-number you will have a full tracking backup or just a tracking server.
    If both PCs share the same net-number they will track all playbacks, page-change etc.
    If you have different net-numbers then you have tracking show server.
    The wings wont automatically switch from one PC to the other. They need to be attached to the hardware.
    You might be lucky with KVM Switch, but this wont all be happen automatic and still would need some config in the software after switching

    OK Thank´s! Maybe it´s also worth a try to changeover the widgets with a KVM switch then.

    You can try...
    Might work but also not ;)
    If you try it, make sure that you configure the widgets on both PCs

    Works great! Tried it without the KVM switch. If i start up the backup computer with widgets plugged in and just rip them out after start i can just plug it in again after disconnecting main computer. Up and running in under 15 secs! Good enough for me.

    If it works for you like that then its perfect...
    Not totally seemless, but fast enough for a lot of applications
