Per the apple tech article, you need an Intel MacPro to capture prores 422 HD.
because the Kona 2 operates in only PCI-x bus slots and those systems operate only in dual G5 2.7 or less...um, no. maybe a chance in hell it can downconvert and capture to SD, you will know soon enough when you test it.
[pixeleyed]"Anyone out there with a Kona2 having success with ProRes? I vaguely over-read addition of ProRes to Kona3, is that true for Kona2 too?"
No because a Kona 2 only runs on the PowerPC G5's and those don't support Pro Res capture. I'm pretty sure you can capture to a native codec and then edit in a ProRes timeline, but we have not tried that out here so I can't say for certain.

just a quick clarification--G5's support HD PRO RES 422. now the SD world of ProRes capture off of signal is not yet defined. The Quad G5 will certainly chug through it. (have your Activity Monitor CPU Usage window up and watch it redline!)
but in all reality, i dont believe based on some tests i did that the PCI-X bus systems will do much.
