Using Kona LHi to connect HDTV as a third computer monitor
on Dec 6, 2011 at 6:08:26 pm

We're looking into getting a new MacPro (one of the 12-core or 6-core 2010 releases). With our old 2008 MacPro with Decklink Extreme HD 2 card, we could use an HDTV as a 3rd monitor using Extended Desktop when it was not playing video from FCP or AE. My boss is pretty insistent that he can continue to do this.

There's a few older posts regarding this, but I wanted to get a more up-to-date answer:
Is there an extended desktop feature for the Kona LHi? Can my boss continue to use his HDTV as a 3rd desktop monitor when FCP or AE are not in use? The HDTV would be connected to the Kona card via HDMI.

[Keith Hamilton] "Is there an extended desktop feature for the Kona LHi?"

Nope. I see the option in the list, but it is greyed out. USED to be an option, but caused problems, so they pulled that option back, from what I recall.

AJA offers two versions of it's drivers; one is labeled as "NDD" and this version does not feature an extended Macintosh Desktop Display option. The other version, which lacks the "NDD" identifier, allows the user to create an extended Macintosh Desktop on the video outputs.

Shane Ross is likely using the NDD version and therefore the option is greyed out for him.

If you have any additional questions about Macintosh Desktop Display and the AJA KONA LHi, don't hesitate to contact AJA Technical Support for assistance.

You've gone back to allowing DESKTOP output? Cool. Not that I'd want that personally, but nice.

It's been nice for us, especially when showing Quicktime movies to clients.
