I installed the new Blackmagic drivers for the Kona card recently, and have not been able to get the system running normally ever since. I am pretty new to this, so maybe I did something wrong, but I followed all of the installation instructions very carefully (twice), trashed the prefs, etc. and there is still a problem.
Here is the problem, when I try to capture, the log and capture opens with a black screen saying "no video input", but the VTR is OK. I play the footage, and it runs fine on the external monitor. When I capture the clip, the first frame is captured in freeze-frame, and the sound runs fine. During capture, everything appears fine on the external monitor. Also, while I was testing, the capture now seemed to work fine, only the batch and clip capture don't seem to run as they should.
Here are my system specs:
Dual 800GHz Quicksilver, 640MB RAM, 4 x Western Digital 120GB 7200RPM IDE drives internally on Sonnet Tempo RAID133 PCI IDE adaptor, OS 10.2.4, Final Cut Pro 3.0.4, KONA SD, ATI Radeon 7000 for Mac, DaMax+ converting DV to SDI.
Sounds strange. Can you try capture to the internal disk, perhaps with JPEG? Capture problems are normally disk related, and doing some short captures to the internal disk is a good way to eliminate the disk array from the cause of the problem.
