Decklink HD Extreme 2 - No input picture
on Nov 15, 2013 at 6:48:01 am


I have got a Decklink HD Extreme 2 and I cant seem to get any picture in Media Express.

I have tried composite and HDMI and neither gives me an image in Media Express.

I have changed the settings in System Prefs for the BM card. For composite capture I have set the input to "Composite Video" and video standard to "PAL". In the Media Express prefs I set project format to PAL. I connect my camera via composite cable to the "Y in" green breakout cable. I would imagine then I should get a picture on the screen from my camera but I get nothing???

I have tried the HMDI as well and adjusted the settings etc but no go.

I have checked in System Profiler and the card shows up in slot 4 where it is installed.

I have also run the Expansion Slot Utility and that says the card is running properly.

In the BM Desktop Video settings it lists my card at the top so I assume it is installed an recognised by the system correctly.

I am on a Mac Pro with OSX 10.6.8 12gig ram and oodles of RAID space.

I have got the latest drivers from the BM website (9.9.2). I know it says these are not for OSX 10.6.8 BUT I have also tried older versions back to 9.5.3.

Any suggestions?

Am I just being a goose with some settings?

Could the card be stuffed?

Thanks in advance.
