I'm trying the AG3.2 Bundled installer on Win7 32-bit with a BlackMagic Intensity Pro card and a Sony HDR-HC9 camera connected via HDMI.  I've got the VideoProducerServiceHD configured with the following:

Resource: Blackmagic-Intensity Pro
Start Priority: 5
Stream Name:  Blackmagic-Intensity Pro
Port: HDMI
Encoding: MPEG4 or h264 (same problem with both)
Standard: HD-720p-60  (there are many choices, same problem with several)
Bandwidth: 3000
Frame Rate: 30
Quality: 75
Capture Size: Large
Encoding Deinterlacer: off
Processor usage: All
Large Size/Scaler Resolution: none

Is there documentation for these settings?

When I enable the VideoProducerServiceHD, VIC crashes with the following error:

invalid command name ""
invalid command name ""
    while executing
"$cmd [expr round([$qscale get])]"
    invoked from within
"$qscale instate {!disabled} {
			set cmd [$qscale cget -command]
			$cmd [expr round([$qscale get])]
    (procedure "init_grabber" line 59)
    invoked from within
"init_grabber $V(grabber)"
    invoked from within
"if ![have grabber] {

		set DS [attribute_class $DA size]

		# first, see if d..."
    (procedure "transmit" line 3)
    invoked from within
    ("after" script)

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
