Bug Fixes: 
  • DVS-562: PTP failed error after sleep / wake or reboot
  • DVS-587: Make OSX DVS 10.13 kext blocking aware (DVS now prompts the user to approve the kernel extension if required)
Known Issues: 
  • DVS-521 / DVS-595: When enrolled in DDM, domain information in the UI may not be accurate (the DDM IP address may be displayed as N/A, and the DDM hostname may not appear).
  • DVS-594: When enrolled in DDM, changing the DDM hostname may cause DVS to present in DDM as 'offline'. Workaround: Clear domain credentials in DVS, 'forget' the device in DDM and restart DVS.
  • DVS-542: For computers with multiple network interfaces connected to different Dante networks, DVS may present as a device on multiple networks.
  • DVS-598 / DVS-599: The DVS control panel can temporarily lose connection to the DVS manager service when not in focus.
