I finally had time to investigate the issue. It looks like that as of 11.5, the DesktopVideoHelper.service has to be running for the capture card to work properly.

I resolved the problem and I got which my card worked again. First at all I have to stop the DesktopVideoHelper service and rebuilt the package, then, I did run the service and used the DesktopVideoUpdater to update the driver, after the reboot the card was able to work again. Maybe is a issue with my board.

I just rebuilt the package and the dkms installed.

@arch_fram is the DesktopVideoHelper.service running ? Since 11.5 the service need run otherwise the card will not work.

I have 5.7.4-arch1-1 kernel, and It seem like my Decklink mini recorder is not detected :/ ERR The driver was not able to be unloaded because it is in use ERR You will need to reboot to use the new driver

I'll reboot the system but nothing happen, is still not working

Works for me as well.

@zangoku IIRC one time it didn't build for me years back was when there were leftovers of the dkms stuff in /var/lib/dkms/blackmagic* that was set up for a previous gcc version and had to be removed. Maybe it helps.

Decklink 11.5.1 builds and works fine on my computer with kernels 5.7.x and the patches I added in the latest commit.

zangoku commented on 2020-06-17 21:18

A little heads up for those on kernel 5.7, dkms modules don't build until blackmagic releases an update as usual.

Anybody else having issues with 100% CPU load on the DesktopVideoHelper and the DesktopVideoUpdater executables? I didn't find out yet what exactly triggers it, but I can see both of them spinning at 100% load sooner or later on my machine until I stop the systemd unit and kill the processes.

@filmtools, Install linux-headers with the following command and try again

sudo pacman -S linux-headers
