    using a Decklink Extreme 4k with an older BetacamSP deck (J30) for capturing. I’ve configured the card for component video, analog 2 channel XLR, and reference.

    Running a mac with 10.12 software and Premiere Pro. My settings for PPro have the decklink for audio input (in audio hardware). When I capture, I get the video capturing fine, but no audio recording. Before I start messing with cables in the back, can anyone clue me in on any other settings in premiere or decklink setup I need to check?

    I would check your Blackmagic Video Desktop version against your operating system to make sure they are compatible.

    Before capturing, can you hear any audio in Premiere Pro?

    Next try with Blackmagic Media Express application to check your sound there. That should help you figure out if you have a configuration issue with Premiere Pro or something else.
