The same problem as it is described in this thread: http://v002.info/forums/topic/unstable-syphon-client-in-max/

The Syphon client works when copy-pasted from the help example, but after a while of connecting and disconnecting and fiddling around the Simple Syphon Server stream is not shown in the patch any more. Restart of Max 6 helps.
And the same error messages as described in that thread as well.

Vade, do you think it is difficult to program a native Cocoa application for sending Video over the network using the Syphon SDK? My programming skills are far away from beeing able to do that, but I’d be willing to contribute $ to a programming bounty for an Open Source implementation of NetSyphon.

Apart from that any hint on how to send video from one machine to another via a cable would be highly appreciated. I found this: http://www.udart.dk/2009/07/30/the-5-video-mixer-how-to-do-a-dv-screen-cast-through-firewire/
But there the sending window can not be hidden, rendering the screen unusable for using the sender machine for other stuff.

Best regards and thanks for all the wonderful stuff you are providing!
It is highly appreciated!
