Default Blackmagic Mini-monitor 4K not working

Be darned if I can get this to work with EDIUS. It DOES show up in the EDIUS Hardware, and properly ticked with Preview (as was the SPARK) - but when I load a 1080i timeline, the monitor shows absolutely nothing. Updated drivers are fine. Doesn't even work with the Blackmagic Video Panel - so something is haywire. If anyone has a suggestion, I'm eager!
Best to all,
Alan

Hi Andrew. Nothing out of Media Express either. Tried that earlier - as well as Resolve - believe it or not. Tried checking everything before I bothered anyone. I'm going to switch PCIe slots in 10 minutes - just to try anything!
Thanks for your come-back.
Alan

Check your HDMI cable first and make sure your TV is on the right HDMI input settings

Remember the mini monitor 4k needs a 4 lane pcie slot and not a single lane so 4X instead of a1X slot. Also check what resources are being shared by your board. Also depending on your CPU model some provide more lanes than others. Also so BMC work better with certain lanes either provided by the chip or the CPU.

Silly solve! NEVER, at least with the SPARK or Blackmagic Mini Monitor 4K card, run the HDMI cable through an HDMI splitter. The splitters normally do not facilitate a "handshake" with the monitor, and therefore the card does not recognize the monitor and does not ship any information to it. With help from a dear friend on this forum whose suggestion was to try to bypass the splitter - now all is well, and beautiful.

Thanks to all..... and just in case it might help others, I posted this!

My understanding of HDMI is that both ends of the connection communicate to set transmission parameters. If the sending end can't see the receiving end then it may not send anything.

I've found output cards to be twitchy, especially BM cards. Splitters cause an interruption of handshake signals that may or may not match those of the sending hardware.
It's always best to connect the output card directly to the TV or monitor being used during the setup process.

I have found Blackmagic cards are also not that great at working through different HDMI Amps. If connect directly to the TV through HDMI I rarely have a problem unless:
  • The card is faulty (I sold a lot and we did not have many faulty).
  • The settings are wrong.
  • Blackmagic have produced new drivers and messed something up (moral@ stay with drivers you know work)

Couldn't have said it better, Jerry - even though I tried! You're a God-send, my friend.
Have a great weekend - and a terrific Summer. Will be in touch.
