Come on guys, it's been shipping a while now.

Let's be having some real life stories/frustrations/triumphs from those of you who have hands-on.

What are you looking for?

The ioHD box is great. Check out the posts in this forum.

Considering there must have been thousands shipped by now I'm not so sure that there is much here actually.

I know AJA make great products, I've been a satisfied IO user for years and my guys tell me that my IOhd arrived today.

I was assuming/hoping that no (or little) news on this forum meant that most people were just getting on and using them without issue, but confirmation would have been good ;-)

Well, for what it's worth, I love it.

I have only had for a little bit, but it's been getting on just great.

it plugs in, and it works.

You want real life frustrations - here it is.
1) it's almost impossible to get delivery of an I/O HD
2) there are no Leopard drivers for I/O HD
3) everyone that doesn't have an I/O HD will cry that they want to get a "trade in" on their older AJA product.

I got one the first day they were out. We have been putting it though it's paces. We have run cameras to it (F900R, F900/3 and EX1) and have onlined and CC'd a national spot with it in SD uncompressed.

When it comes to using a laptop with it (the reason we bought it) let's just say it has a few problems that hopefully can be fixed with software updates. One example: we took it out to a movie set in the very cold desert to capture ProRes from a F900 and although it was great when it worked right it crashed too many times to be useful.

Once I get to the bottom of these issues I am going to post a very detailed report on our experience with the IoHD.

I think it will be great when the kinks get worked out.

How'd it crash?

It would seem to lose sync from the camera at random times. The video would flash green junk in the FCP capture window and on the monitor output. Both the io and computer would need to be restarted and then FCP would work until it happened again.

It would also lose sync another way without the green flashing and we could just unplug the SDI and plug it back in and it all worked.

I would attribute this to ProRes more than anything else.

I assume you have AJA support in the loop?

I agree, it IS a little buggy. FCS has crashed on me far more often when using IOHD then when I'm not. I've only used it as an output device.

I have seen some image quality issues, but I suspect it's something I'm doing and haven't had time to troubleshoot.
