Avid Express Pro HD and Loss of Deck Control

Sony_HDW_F500.gif

Sometimes after upgrading to the latest version of Avid Express Pro HD you may have found that you can no longer control your deck and the capture controls do not work. This happened to me with the latest version of Avid Express Pro HD 5.2. It appears to that this only happens with HD versions of the software.

When trying to capture directly to the CPU from a deck/transcoder/camera via firewire, you may notice that there the deck is not recognized or communicating to the software.
Although, this problem is specific to communicating from the CPU directly to the capture device, there have been cases when this method has rectified capture issues with a DNA device (Mojo or Adrenaline) as well.
This can be resolved by registering the DVBuffers. (this file is a part of the DIO Runtime, which is installed with the Avid software, and is essential for Avid's communication with external capture devices).
To register the buffers:
1.Click Start, then click Run

2.In the command line, type : regsvr32 DVBuffers.ax

If you typed this line correctly, a popup window will display a message "DLLRegisterServer in DVBuffers.ax succeeded" (the message may vary from version to version) If the line was typed incorrectly, the message will report that the registration failed.
