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'm guessing still no luck with the BM update yet?

Here's my failed install log for dkms for kernel 5.6.8

Yes, and it won't work until Blackmagic releases an update. I'll open another support ticket asking if they know when the next version will be released.

DKMS modules do not build on 5.6.5 either.

goldensuneur commented on 2020-04-06 19:29

DKMS modules do not build with linux 5.6+, stay on lts for now. Blackmagic support is aware of the issue we have to wait until they release an update.

@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.

goldensuneur commented on 2020-03-04 07:10

@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?
