    I updated my OS to 10.3.9, thinking it was supported, but now I have problems with deck control and audio.

    I’m editing DVCPROHD 1080i, 29.97 footage to a DVCPROHD 150 deck and I can control the deck for capture, but right now I’m trying to edit to tape, or even just play back to tape and it is not working.

    I have no audio out of the card, into the deck through the HDSDI connector. I can’t do an edit to tape, so just to get the show onto tape, I hooked up the AES digital audio out from the card, directly into the AES input of the deck. I was able to make a 25 minute transfer to tape by recording “on the fly” for one segment.

    When I tried to do the longer version, 1 hr 6 minutes, the audio drops out about 3 minutes into the show. I’ve restarted, zapped the p-ram, and repaired permissions. Right now I’m downloading QT 7…I figure everything is already “screwed” by updating to 10.3.9, so why not try it.

    Anyone have any ideas? I plan on switching to Tiger and FCP5, as soon as I can get the software, but that doesn’t help me right now since that’s at least a week away and I hear Apple’s not delivering FCP 5 very quickly anyway.

    My configuration is DP 2GZ, wi 5 GB RAM, G-Raid 500GB Firewire drive, FCP 4.5, Decklink HD card with Decklink 4.8 driver & Edirol AES speakers.

    thx..Jim Watt

    Playback with digital audio was solved by copying everything to a new project. Still can’t edit to tape and still don’t have embedded audio from the card to deck via SDI.

    Editing to tape, the deck goes through all the motions, and records, but there is no audio or video coming through, but timecode is there>

    I reported something which sounds familiar here:

    It would be useful I reckon if Drivers were taken as far as 10.3.9

    When we “accidentally” upgraded to 10.3.9, we started getting snyc hits on output in video. I don’t know if you’re hooked up to a sync generator, but we downgraded back to 10.3.8 and that’s minimized our problems. I would STRONGLY recommend NOT upgrading to QuickTime 7 as your Pro Key will not work. Granted, it’s only another $25, but it adds one more variable to the problem. My recommendation is download the 10.3.8 combo update from apple’s site along with the Quicktime 6.5.2 re-installer that gets rid of QT7 and rolls back to 6.5.2, get your install disks and do an archieve and install of 10.3 and reload the 4.8 drivers from BMD.
