Hello,

It's already been a few days since I tried to test the following Green screen example but when I launch the code the program stay blocked when I try to get the captures from the master device. By lookin at the logs I get the following errors :

....

I investigated a lot on the problem without finding any solution.
I'm working with Windows 10 and with the v1.4.1 of the Azure Kinect SDK.
My computer got two GPU Nvidia Quatro RTX 6000 so I shouldn't have any problem with that.
Here is the firmware present in each camera (from the log file) :

    Hello @Alexandre Chapin ,

    We have come across the capturesync_drop, releasing capture early due to a "full queue" issue but that was related to using a USB expansion card/hub.

    We can suggest perhaps using a different USB chipset. Using USB controllers from Intel did not have this issue. We also assume the 3.5 mm audio cable is less than 10 meters long as specified in the Azure Kinect docs.

    Synchronize multiple Azure Kinect DK devices

    Please comment in the below section for further help in this matter, we are happy to help you.
