SDI Input Card Problem After Installing Windows 8.1

Postby brun sweater » Thu Oct 24, 2019 3:03 pm

Hi

Because of Windows XP no longer supported in the latest PB version, I've installed Windows 8.1 on my Dual Players. One of the Players have a Coolux SDI Input Card, and I can't get PB to detect it? In the Device Manager the Card is listed with the name %hd.DeviceDesc% wich is obviously wrong? I've tried installing and uninstalling and deleting several driver versions, but to no avail, and no matter if I try and install the latest driver version, downloaded from the download section (6.01) using the latest installer version (2.1), Windows keep listing the driver installed as version 5.4.157.0 ?

I'm obviously missing something? Is there a special procedure to follow?

Running Windows 8.1 Pro and PB 6.1.4 on an original Coolux Dual Player born with Windows XP from around 5 years ago?

Thx in advance and cheers

It's working now. Using driver 5.4.91.0

Windows now recognizes the Card as coolux hd-sdi 5_14 and the Card also appears in the asset pool in PB

It's a rather old driver though, so if anybody have some insights into this, I'll appreciate it

Cheers
