Since Decklink doesn't work on Dell Optiplex 7010, we seem to need to turn clock's back to 90's and build our own PC's. That really isn't the desired way in a company that has tens of production PC's.



Just came across this thread. I have a couple other posts about multiple cards in a machine (DeckLink Mini Recorders in our case). Ironically, I am using a Dell 7010 (small form factor - has two low profile PCIe card slots).

I can get one to work OK. But not two - perhaps there is something with the 7010. We have 1000 upon 1000's of PCs, I just happen to have the 7010 here and not in use. Did you ever find another, better Dell to work with?

My experience with z87 sabertooth motherboard
1. Intensity Shuttlle works fine on USB3.0 port
2. Intensity Pro did not work on PCIe Ver.2.0 buses.
3. Intensity Pro works Ok on PCIe Ver3.0 bus.
4. Installed final Intensity Pro on PCIe Ver3.0 bus (there's only two(2) PCIe3.0 bus on mobo)

Using Ustream Pro and could set 2 Intensity Pro to 1080i/59.94 while Intensity shuttle to 1080p/30 so I can capture HDMI of my Windows RT Tablet.

Been using full ATX Gigabyte boards for years and have no issues with Intensity Pro's on both PCI-e 2 or PCI-e 3 slots. If it doesn't work on the Sabertooth in PCI-e 2 slots then you may need to check some BIOS settings

I have two AOS motherboards from Quo computer and they work well with both my intensity pro and my thunderbolt card. I also have two older gigabyte motherboards that works. And I also have an older Asus p6t se motherboard with a xeon hexacore cpu on it that works. They all run os x though so that might be why they work.

Has anybody used the PCIe Intensity Shuttle on a dual proc board?

If you mean a Xeon board then they work fine

Actually now I'm considering an ASUS x99 motherboard

Tony is there a special reason none of the Asus x99 boards appear on your list, or any x99 boards, as far as I can tell?

Wow, I just crossed with this topic and didn't even have courage to go see the "approved" list.

Soon this will seem like Avid's requirements, which if you will consider it seriously will take away several thousands dollars from your bank! Particularly on the video cards you should have to use.

Of course many people don't follow those rules and work flawlessly, but with a certain guilt at being "non-approved".

Can't people make products that will run on all machines, PC or Mac?

It's not that simple, different motherboard manufacturers implement onboard components in different ways as do different controller chipset manufacturers which can conflict with other devices. If all motherboard were manufactured identically then there wouldn't be any problems, but then there wouldn't be any incentive to buy different motherboards with different levels of components on them depending on what your requirements are.

I haven't tested the Expert, but Asus' other Thunderbolt board the Deluxe/Dual doesn't work properly with my BM and firewire cards in the 1x slots unless you disable the onboard Bluetooth and Wireless as it's always polling and causes glitches


I just want to update this early post. I use the Azus z87 'Expert' motherboard (has TB instead of DP) which I initially spec'd for my NLE, but have since installed a Quadro K600 GPU, BM PCIe Decklink mini-monitor card as well as a BM PCIe Decklink SDI 4K card on the same system. They perform faultlessly together, without disabling on-board Bluetooth/Wireless. (Resolve 11.1)

We've been having a similar issue with newer Decklink SDI 4Ks on machines qualified by both Avid and BMD. Older Decklink cards seem to work without a problem.

We tried with some Lenovo towers (which oddly enough use SFF / Micro motherboards) as well and those definitely didn't work. I've been told that any small form factor motherboard is likely to not work so that's something to consider. This was true for both the Intensity Pro and the Decklink, of which we have many in house.

If I get a fix for this soon I'll post what worked for me. I have a feeling it's a BIOS revision or something along those lines that they'll need to work around (hopefully sooner than later), but hopefully it's something I can do on my end.

I know there are many factors that contribute to perfect capture and playback, but I am curious what level of capture-quality qualifies as 'certified' from an engineering perspective.

I have been searching for a pre-manufactured 1RU computer that could utilize a Decklink Mini Recorder, and attempted today with an HP DL120 G7. As with a few other Blackmagic capture products I have tried, I get smooth video for-the-most-part, but every 10 seconds or so the video becomes choppy. Carefully observe this video for an example:
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9UDWS ... sp=sharing
Neither CPU or GPU have a heavy load, but yet there is some choppiness that can be observed.

In my ignorance I wonder if the only requirement some people are looking at is that they can see -- on the capturing-computer -- the video they are trying to capture.... but my question is What other tests can a user perform, besides tirelessly watching for smooth video, to ensure that a Desktop Video Product will work with a device?

Thanks!

First thing to do would be to try capturing using Media Express and see if you get the same issue there to see if it's a general issue or if wirecast is the problem.

You don't say what CPU you are using or what else is in the system, background programs and other devices may be interfering with the stream

Looks like Supermicro's 7048GR-TR have some issues with DeckLink 4K 6G extreme card.
( viewtopic.php?f=3&t=34410 )
I've opened a Topic about it but it seams like nobody cares.
All available drivers were tested but no way to have it to work, anytime i've tried to turn on the computer it beeped 8 times and didn't stop until i forced it to shut off.

The card were tested in all PCI-e ports, with no difference at all.

Don't really know what to do now, this card is vital to the system.

Quite uppset.

If you want an answer from BM then you need to contact them directly. This is predominantly a user forum

My HP ZBook Workstation Ultrabooks™ 3 (without thunderbolt port) can detect Intensity Shuttle. But cannot detect Ultrastudio Pro.

Any chance of some newer MOBOs being listed as "approved"? I am having a hard time finding stock on many of the listed boards.

I build (at home, for training) a pc with an old crosshair IV, and a 980/4gb. hardware raid 10 (4×4tb), and DeckLink Mini monitor.

it works....
