Helping a friend with FinalCut
Her G5 12,1 with 12Gb Ram
Decklink SDI card
Sony LDM-9050 external monitor
Sequence in xdcam EX 1080p30
We tried over the phone every setup for monitoring through de HD-SDI output of the decklink card to her Sony HD-SDI monitor with no success. Yes enabled all frames playback
Also since installing Decklink software she is no longer able to get the audio out to her m-audio interface

I'm running out of solutions. They have a project to color correct ASAP
Thanks for helping out

Trying to color correct on a 9" monitor? Ouch.

Set the VIDEO PLAYBACK to 1080i59.94. Yes, your footage is 30p...just try this. It will still be progressive.

As for the M-AUDIO...how is that connected? Go into the AUDIO/VIDEO settings and switch it from DECKLINK to how the M-AUDIO is connected.

My friend got the audio back. I asked her to check her cabling. Maybe this was it. For the video monitor she tried all three settings 8 bit, 10 bit and rgb with no success.
Something wong, but what?
Any more ideas
Thanks for your patience

How are your options set on the video tab of the Decklink panel in System Prefs?

I wanted to help a friend in need

Just so that everyone knows, I've been at it for the last 72 hours. My friend has a G5 11,2 that is suppose to be compatible with the Decklink SDI card. Well... as for now it ain't.
Simple setup XDCam clip shot at 30fps. FinalCut 6.0.6 set at compressor XDCam EX 30fps (35Mbs VBR)
Computer a G5 11,2. 12.5Gb Ram. Mac OS 10.5.8. HD Monitor Sony LDM-9050 with an HD/SDI Input

It looks pretty simple. Sure.

I have a friend who told me that maybe the software was too updated for the G5. So I downloaded the softwares from version 5. Did all the updates software and firmwares. Everytime I launched FinalCut 6.0.6 and tried every possibilities of having the Sony monitor the timeline. I really mean every possibilities that I was offered. For G5 owners out there don't go below DeckLink 6.8.7 for Mac OS X 10.4 & 10.5 Universal. Believe me they don't work. I stopped at DeckLink 7.2.1 for Mac OS X 10.4 & 10.5 Universal. But remember I had tried DeckLink 7.9.5 for Macintosh.

All in all I gave up. It's been an unworthy experience.

For my part I have a Quad Core Intel with the AJA Kona3. I had some issues with my three 24 inches monitors. But after 15 minutes they were resolved. Even when I was using Media Composer with AJA before they agreed.

If anyone has a solution to this problem I would gladly take a moment to remember if I tried it.

Have a good day
