Has anyone heard when Duel Systems plans to provide software to support the Duel Adapter in Snow Leopard? I'm dying to get a new MacBookPro but am holding out because of this.

If you need a MBP get one, buy a cheap USB HD that is bus powered and put Leopard on it. You that as on ingest system drives, it is a pain but it will work.

Dave, I just saw your question after responding to a similar one further up the board -- Duel apparently stated that they are not going to support Snow Leopard and have no intention of doing so in the future. I'm afraid you'll have to find another way to ingest footage from the cards unless there's a change of heart. Sorry to be the bearer or bad (albeit not first-hand, so you might want to confirm with Duel...) news.

Thanks Chris. I guess Duel just didn't sell enough of them. I guess I'll hang on to one of my P2 Stores as a reader.

Dave,
When I found the the Duel Adapter wouldn't work with my 4GB Macbook Pro I started using my old G4 and Tiger, and that continues to be our workflow. Last time I tried the MB Pro --with Leopard-- the consensus was that you needed to disable 2 of the 4 GB of RAM in order to make the Duel work, something I didn't want to do. I'd be interested to know if they've fixed that.

I haven't encountered that problem but I only have 2 GB RAM. I doubt they have fixed it though. It sounds like they are getting out of the P2 business by their lack of support on everything else.

Now that Sonnet has released a driver that worked with my eSATA stuff, the Duel Adapter was the only hurdle that I had to moving to SL on my Macbook Pro. So I created a second small partition (easy to do in SL), installed 10.5 and voila; I boot into the 10.5 partition when I need to transfer footage and then have the 10.6 as my default boot partition. I have Shotput Pro installed on my SL partition but it runs fine when I boot from 10.5. Only downside is that FCP won't boot my SL install off the 10.5 partition so I can't easily review footage like I used to.

Cheaper than buying another laptop and lighter to pack only one.

BTW, Sonnet says that their new driver also takes care of the >2Gig RAM issue, and, since it's an updated version of the SIL3132 driver used in so many other peripherals, it resurrected my cheap eSATA Express34 card!
