NVENC firmware load failed message

On my Xavier AGX 32GB, JetPack 5.0.2, I’m seeing a firmware load failure message once per boot after launching an NVENC encoder job (such as sample 15_multivideo_encode). It is recorded in dmesg as follows:

[  214.381155] falcon 154c0000.nvenc: Direct firmware load for nvhost_nvenc070.fw failed with error -2
[  214.381517] falcon 154c0000.nvenc: Falling back to sysfs fallback for: nvhost_nvenc070.fw
[  214.403298] falcon 154c0000.nvenc: looking for firmware in subdirectory
[  214.686799] falcon 15a80000.nvenc1: Direct firmware load for nvhost_nvenc070.fw failed with error -2
[  214.687131] falcon 15a80000.nvenc1: Falling back to sysfs fallback for: nvhost_nvenc070.fw
[  214.692746] falcon 15a80000.nvenc1: looking for firmware in subdirectory

Despite the error the encoding operations appear to work well.

Is this a problem that may impact performance or a false-alarm?

The message is reported for both GStreamer and Multimedia API launches.

Hi,
The prints are not expected and we are checking this. If encoding function works fine in your use-case, please temporarily ignore it.

we have the same error in 5.0.2, but in our case, the gstreamer audio does not work. It worked in 4.6…
