Problems with Blackmagic Intensity Pro

Hello all,
I have a question/problem:
About my setup:
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GH4
Capture card: Blackmagic Intensity Pro
PC: i5 and GTX960

Unfortunately the capture card in my PC works only sporadically.
Sometimes it recognizes the camera and sometimes not. I have also tried the card by friends. Sometimes it works wonderfully and sometimes not at all. If the card does not recognize the camera and you open the properties of the card in OBS, everything hangs until you leave the properties again. I have also tried to set all PCI versions manually on my computer, unfortunately still the same behavior.
So I turn to the forum do you have any experience with the BM Intensity Pro in combination with OBS?
Thanks
 
Have You installed BM Desktop Video Setup onyour machine? does this has also the "connection" problems? sometimes ithelps. I had this with an older card and you have to first setup BM devices in this program and then they should work fine in other software.

Yeah, I installed that. It detects the BM Intensity Pro correct. However, the BM Desktop setup sometimes shows no input and sometimes it does, as described above.
 
it might be some problem with the PCI-e slot. I had this with an USB card, where in one slot it worked and in another it sometimes lost connection. would this be an option to trie? do you have another PCI-e slot free in your machine?
