I understand the Intensity Shuttle can’t work both ways, sending and capturing video at the same time. However, on a MacBook Pro I assumed that the video capture through Intensity Shuttle-Thunderbolt-Media Express and outputting the laptop screen would be two completely independent processes.
The idea was to send from the laptop a screen display (HDMI) to AV converter, to Visual Cortex, and in another screen to run Blackmagic Media Express, to capture the component out signal from Visual Cortex.
Everything works as expected, with one or the other, but not with both at the same time. As soon as I connect the HDMI to AV, Media Express loses its input.
Does anyone know if it’s because the laptop is applying a restriction to the Thunderbolt connection (or any type of video input), when sending a screen display? Although Blackmagic Desktop Video Utility still recognises that the Intensity Shuttle is connected.
Or is the problem with Media Express, perhaps not recognising the input format?
