Datapath and Blackmagic Capture Cards

Recommended Posts

I have got Watchout 5.5 and recently purchased a Datapath VisionRGB-E2S, to add to the existing blackmagicdesign decklink studio card.

 

However since installing the datapath card windows no longer sees the blackmagic. 

 

Anyone got any suggestions as to how I can fix this?

I'll suggest you swap place/slot between the cards.

Decklink cards are known to be picky with motherboards and company.

 

What motherboard are you using and how are the slots populated?

It is possible to get those cards to co-exist with the right combination of motherboard, BIOS, driver versions.

I agree with Jonas, I would be looking at interactions of the PCIe expansion slots and then look at the software side.

We have seen x4 rated slots drop to x1 when another expansion card is added to a nearby slot.

I have the same cards, and also the same problem, but the blackmagic is working in windows and i can see it in the watchout, i remeber it used to work, but its not working anymore, maybe the new version?

Same configuration but not the latest Blackmagic firmware update and no problems

 

Which image is frozen - the one to the Decklink or the one to the E2S?
