ADV7511 VC707 HDMI reference design - ERROR: [BD 5-106] Arguments to the connect_bd_intf_net command cannot be empty

Hi,

 

I'm unable to build the ADV7511 HDMI reference design for the VC707 board, using the hdl_2015_r1 branch with Vivado-2014.4.1.

 

Vivado fails with the following error:

 

ERROR: [BD 5-106] Arguments to the connect_bd_intf_net command cannot be empty.

 

The full error log can be found below. The license for the axi_ethernet v.6.2 is already included in Vivado 2014.4.1. I have additionally installed all the other required ethernet cores (e.g. TRI mode MAC ethernet, etc), so I don't think it is license issue related, although a warning is shown in the logs.

Could someone from ADI please verify if the ADV7511 design builds correctly for the VC707 board, for the hdl_2015_r1 branch using Vivado 2014.4.1?

 

Note: The design builds correctly for another ZC706 board, but it doesn't use the same ethernet core in the design.
