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.

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

I get this error on Manjaro

Seems to be working on my end as well.

Your update is working perfectly for me!

That was quick! Thank you! I just built it with 5.6.10 without issues. After a brief look at Resolve and Nuke with Decklink Studio 4K it seems to be working as expected.

Version 11.5.1 has just been released unfortunately it does not build with kernels 5.6.0+ so I patched the driver to make it compatible.

However I'm not familiar with kernel module development so consider support for newer kernel experimental. Changes are minimal so hopefully I did not introduce any bug.

Yes, you can clone the git repository (, go to the commit corresponding to the version you want and build the package with makepkg -i.

Is there a way to build the previous version? Sorry still new to building files I'm also running manjaro.
