What am i missing...has to be something basic


#1

So i had a box working just fine on 2.0.7. I tried to update to to 2.2 but i didnt have the appropriate hardware. So ive gone back to .7 but for the life of me i cannot get video out of the blackmagic card.

What am i missing?.. (and i did make the stupid mistake of loosing my working config file) below what i have now…

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <paths>
    <media-path>media\</media-path>
    <log-path>log\</log-path>
    <data-path>data\</data-path>
    <template-path>templates\</template-path>
    <thumbnails-path>thumbnails\</thumbnails-path>
  </paths>
  <channels>
    <channel>
        <video-mode>1080i5994</video-mode>
        <consumers>
        </consumers>
    </channel>
  </channels>
  <controllers>
    <tcp>
        <port>5250</port>
        <protocol>AMCP</protocol>
    </tcp>
  </controllers>
</configuration>

What Decklink card do you use? Try:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
	<paths>
		<media-path>media\</media-path>
		<log-path>log\</log-path>
		<data-path>data\</data-path>
		<template-path>templates\</template-path>
		<thumbnails-path>thumbnails\</thumbnails-path>
	</paths>
	<channels>
		<channel>
			<video-mode>1080i5994</video-mode>
			<consumers>
				<decklink>
					<device>1</device>
					<embedded-audio>true</embedded-audio>
					<channel-layout>stereo</channel-layout>
					<latency>normal</latency>
					<keyer>external</keyer>
					<key-only>false</key-only>
					<buffer-depth>3</buffer-depth>
					<custom-allocator>true</custom-allocator>
				</decklink>            
			</consumers>
		</channel>
	</channels>
	<controllers>
		<tcp>
			<port>5250</port>
			<protocol>AMCP</protocol>
		</tcp>
	</controllers>
</configuration>

Turned out to be a problem with the monitor card.
