DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K Issues


Recommended Posts

Just purchased a DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K, and I'm having trouble getting SDI signal into Watchout Display. I see the signal just fine in the BlackMagic software, but when I try to view it through Watchout Display I get darkness. I have another capture card in another display computer working just fine. Anybody experience issues with this particular card? Thanks.


Running Watchout 6.2.2

Tried using BlackMagic Desktop Video versions 10.9.12, 10.9.5, 10.8, and 10.7 (which I later realized is incompatible entirely with this card).

What type of signal are you trying to capture? BlackMagic software is using the DeckLink interface while WATCHOUT is using DirectShow filters. I haven't tested this particular card but BlackMagic cards doesn't seem to be able to scale so the capture settings in WATCHOUT must match the signal format exactly.
