    The Avid Interplay Media indexer readme's and MC <-> Interplay compatibilty matrix

    Dear Avid,

    Another general documentation question.

    The development team is doing great work getting all the interplay/mediacentral media indexer related issues fixed. But...

    With every new Media indexer fix the readme contains this sentence:

    • This patch is recommended to be installed on all Media Indexer v3.6.x, v3.7.x, v3.8.x, and 2017.2.x servers and clients.

    Nothing complicated and from it you could conclude that no other compatibilty issues need to be considered. However... there are the compatibility matrixes:

    http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/en_US/compatibility/Avid-Video-Compatibility-Charts

    More specificly:

    http://resources.avid.com/SupportFiles/Attachments/Interplay_Editor_Compatibility.pdf

    which indicates that the supported version of media indexer depends on the media composer version, including when Interplay versions are 3.6 through 2017.2.

    So what's the deal here? It's either 'all' or what the compatibility matrix says. Both can't be true at the same time. Even support is not 100% sure anymore.

    I agree that the documentation for MI is confusing in this regard. I cam across a similar conflict while upgrading a 3.5 to 3.8 system this past week, and just decided to ignore the recomendation to install 2017.2 on the MI servers.
