            So far, these drivers are NG. The display driver doesn't install properly, so there's no output, and playback in PPro doesn't work (totally frozen video overlay).

            I'm running a DeckLink SP, an original PCI model. Not the latest/greatest, obviously, but it was working just fine in CS3. Anyone else have luck with their hardware?

              Got 'em installed but yeah they are weird. Can't open my monitor setting to select it.

              Also playback works sometimes.....then not.

                Below is the Readme file from Black Magic site specifically for INTENSITY Product.
                (It mentions support for CS4 before you open the readme then fails to mention CS4 anywhere within the document)

                Meantime I am happy to let others be the Testers before I go near it.
