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.

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 just want to update this early post.

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.

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

Hi Mark,

it's been a while since your post. We currently have the same problem.
Running the Intensity Pro 4K on a GIGABYTE Z390 UD with an additional TITAN RIDGE Thunderbolt 3 PCIe card isn‘t reliable.
Most of the time, the Intensity works when put in, but after shutting down and booting the system again, it‘s not available.

I‘m wondering, if you came to any solution since then?

Thanks and best regards

I'm wondering if anyone has had any success with any Motherboards using a current AMD chipset (like X570 or something similar.) Thanks!

I am planning to get a Decklink Quad HDMI Recorder PCIe card (8 lane generation 3 interface), and to build up an AMD Ryzen system to run it, due to the better multicore performance. I have been trying to find a compatible motherboard. The PCI Express System Requirements document looks like it has not been updated for a while, and I cannot see any AMD AM4 motherboards currently available on this list. I have spent hours looking up motherboard specs, and most motherboards available these days (B450 and B570) which have 2 PCIe slots x 16 have the second slot running at x4, and it appears that it needs to be at x8 for the Decklink card.

Any suggestions on what AMD motherboards to use that would probably be available to buy now?

Since there has been no reply, and since and I have done some research which may be helpful to others looking at the Decklink Quad HDMI Recorder PCIe card and running on an AMD Ryzen system, here it is.
There are fewer motherboards available to run an 8 lane PCIe card with a PCIe graphics card using 2 x 16 PCIe slots. If they had made the Decklink Quad HDMI Recorder PCIe card to be able to run on 4 lanes gen 3 then it would have been easier, and I would have thought that it would be possible, even with 4K video, but I could be wrong.

Anyway, an MSI X470 Gaming Plus Max motherboard should work. This was the cheapest I could find, and its likely to be the one we will use.
Also for a lot more money there are the following:-
Asus Prime X570-PRO/CSM
Gigabyte X570 AORUS PRO
ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming
Gigabyte B550 VISION D
Hopefully this will help someone else.

Not a lot of current mobo information available. I've purchased an X570 board. Here's a post I started and got some help with. I'll try and answer questions once all components arrive.

Just to confirm, I built up an AMD Ryzen 5 system using this board, and in the bios changed the PCIe setting from 16 lanes to 8+8 lanes and it works with a video card and a Decklink Quad HDMI recorder card.

I find this discussion kind of silly. I build my own systems and never once had any issues. I use the DeckLink 4K mini monitor too, RAID, dual GPU, etc. The first thing to do is make sure all the components, from MB to CPU to Cards, fans, and power are all compatible with each other. How, easy. Go to PC Parts Picker. Start with the mobo, then look and select the compatible CPU, memory, power supply, and just keep doing the same all the way to GPU cards, fans, etc. Validate you have enough PCI-E lanes to throw anything on those slots and that the combination will allow for the card to fully use the lanes. When you're happy with the kit, build it. Then bring in the OS (Windows 10 Pro 64 bit), the appropriate and latest drivers, and finally install Resolve. No need for a certified mobo. Your weakest link will be what you can get for your money as the right combo can cost $$$$.

I wasn't aware of the PC Parts Picker website and I must say, I am impressed! I dropped all my purchases into their system and confirmed everything will work except it looks like I'm not going to be able to fit the 1T Sabrent Rocket M.2 SSD (but the two Sabrent Rocket 2T M.2 drives will work). This makes it a doodle to select components. Well done for sharing this bit of info, Ellory!
