Beware if you plan to install the Linux Software for the PCI-E capture card Black Magic Intensity Pro! I bought this card and installed it on both Win7 Professional 64bit and on Linux Mint 11 Katya (also on Ubuntu 11.04 before that). Once their software is installed, upon reboot your User Rights will have been revoked, trashed, whatever - you will no longer be able to access any other drive besides your home drive. This includes any USB Drives/Sticks you hook up after booting. Besides that, the Software seems unable to record in 1080p 30, even though it is supposed to be able to do that. Picture shows the screen twice, on top of each other, squished to half height. 1080i 60 worked though. The Software also does not perform well on the Win7 side - I am trying to get an update from BM Designs on this. Oh, and sound over HDMI didn't work either, for both Lin & Win. Packages provided by BM include several architecture types, I used the AMD64 ones.
I am really sad about all this. I mean, for once a publisher offers a native Linux software solution for use with their product, and then it trashes your OS
