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.

@goldensuneur Weird. It wasn't showing up until I reinstalled, rebooted, and reinstalled again.

I always get stuck with weird issues like that.

But I am still having issues with audio on this new driver, but I'm guessing that it's a Blackmagic issue with their driver, since it's also happening on my Windows install.

You have it if you installed the decklink package. It's located under /usr/lib/systemd/system/DesktopVideoHelper.service.

But this is a .service file for systemd, you have to start/enable the service.

sudo systemctl start DesktopVideoHelper.service
sudo systemctl enable DesktopVideoHelper.service

Since updating to 11.5 my capture card isn't showing up in either the Blackmagic Video Setup Utility or OBS.

I don't seem to have DesktopVideoHelper.service on my system, and I've even tried to reinstall this package just in case I was missing something.

@goldensuneur Yep that fixed it, as soon as I picked my 5.4 headers, it installed and added the dkms module. https://i.imgur.com/WJP40Qh.png

@troyBORG You must install headers for your kernel otherwise dkms cannot build the kernel module. I don't know the mane of the package for Manjaro but on Arch it would be linux-headers or linux-lts-headers.

Is this anything I need to worry about?

(3/6) Install DKMS modules
==> Unable to install module blackmagic-io/11.5a34 for kernel 5.4.23-1-MANJARO: Missing kernel headers.

You can use the PKGBUILD in this commit (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=decklink&id=e63fc9d6265e1782d8e661bbc5a3750df5408ccc), it will build the package for version 1.14.1.

About the error you got earlier, it looks like Blackmagicdesign updated the upstream file without notice. I tried this new file but it does not solve our problem of undetected card.

Sorry I don't have much time to investigate now.

How do I get the older version? I'm planning on getting the card soon. Or should I wait for new version before I order the card?

goldensuneur commented on 2020-02-19 07:00

You are right. Mine also shows on lspci with the correct driver but nothing in obs or in the setup.

I'm currently away from my computer so I cannot easily do proper that involve display. I'll do my best but for the moment I recommend not to update and stay on the 1.14.1 version (https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/commit/?h=decklink&id=e63fc9d6265e1782d8e661bbc5a3750df5408ccc)
