Blackmagic Design says it wont work with Mac Power Pc G5. But, if you have one of the last 3 models built with PCI-e slots it will work. i only want to monitor HDMI out and it works.

Get the old 3.2 drivers off the site.

Hi James,

While the Intensity Pro card will appear to "work" with the G5, you are very likely to encounter random lockups of the G5 requiring a hard reboot. Other times you may not be able to start the G5 at all. It's an unpredictable and erratic bug which was not resolved between 3 or 4 hardware vendors and so that's why we say that G5's are unsupported as this unreliability is unacceptable.

Regards,
