SSD Recorder not recognized at first

PostTue Mar 13, 2018 7:31 pm

I wrote to BM Support a week ago, but have received no response as of yet.

When I first power up my Mini Pro 4.6K camera, it always shows the orange light on the attached Blackmagic SSD Recorder and "No Card" on the camera. Only when I unplug the "SDI In" cable from the camera and then plug it back in, the light on the recorder goes white and the camera sees the card that is installed. This happens almost every time I power up.
