Black Magic Mini Monitor 4K delay

PostThu Mar 22, 2018 11:24 am

I'm having a strange issue with my Mini monitor 4k. I'm using it with DaVinci and FSI DM240. The thing is that it's impossible to edit with that setup as I'm having a great delay between Audio and video. Are there any tips to fix that?
Thanks!

Are you monitoring your computer's soundcard output or the SDI embedded audio from the FSI directly?

Assuming the DM240 has an audio output, its audio should be in sync. If it still isn't, I recall that the FSI monitors have a "fast mode" (or similar). Does that change anything? FSI have a reputation of doing a very thorough job though, so I would assume that even in "not-so-fast mode", the audio would still sync up. But worth a shot.

Can only speak to my own case, but the analog audio out from a monitor fed with an HDMI A/V signal from the system gtx card is in sync. The same arrangement with Decklink mini-monitor HDMI is 3 frames off (audio early). So it doesn't appear to be the display device.

Thanks guys for your answers!

It's exactly like John says. It's out of sync even if playing audio on the FSI's speakers connected with SDI.
I must say that I can't understand how is that possible that this "known" issue isn't fixed yet. In fact, one can't edit with such a delay. It's around 3 frames but it makes this card useless for editors...
