I just purchased a Intel Nuc 6i7KYK for a live streaming/HD video broadcasting setup for our church. I have the camera connected to the Thunderbolt and Nuc but nothing happens. Can someone provide some details to how to install the driver or what is necessary to get the Nuc to recognize the thunderbolt and cameras.
We received your inquiry and I understand that you are trying to set up live streaming with the NUC. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may be causing. We will be more than happy looking for a solution.
Please provide us with the following information:
Basic question - is there a white box with a blue circle that has the lightning symbol or "Thurderbolt" in your system tray ?
On Windows 10 its on the lower right hand corner just inside, to the left, of the speaker and WiFi symbol then date/time.
Windows 10 Pro did not have the thunderbolt driver. Wanted to make sure it was there. If not, here is the driver list page: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/26052/NUCs-Thunderbolt-Bus-Driver-for-Windows-10-for-Intel... Download Thunderbolt™ Bus Driver for Windows® 10 for Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK
You may also have to "Allow connections to device" as Win X, Windows 10 is locked down.
Here is one bit of news - Thunderbolt shows up under "System" under Device manager. Open device manager, expand system which should be second from the bottom. Scroll down to just above Universal Serial bus. Thunderbolt 1517 (or some number) should show up. If not, the driver is not recognized. Under ' View" at the top, next to 'File' and 'Action" you can turn on "Show hidden devices"
Try that. Let us know.
Hi. As a secondary question - are there any hardware diagnostics that can be run on the NUC to test the thunderbolt controller and port ?
No Star Trek "Level one diagnostics" jokes
Thanks. (smiles) I will put it on my 2018 Christmas list.
Even a loop back device would be nice to certify the controller and connector at full speed. We used to build NULL modem connectors where TX/RX was transposed for loop back testing. I know its a 1970's kind of thing but was very helpful.
