I bought a used HP XW8600 workstation at suggestion of Aja as a lower cost fix since my Dell XPS was choking on HD material. However when I install the Aja software none of the presets show up in Premiere CS5.
The HP has 4g ram (will add more), NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700 (also plan to upgrade to compatible one for Mercury playback). Machina works fine, so the computer recognizes the card. The software worked briefly, but the Aja control panel wouldn't show any of the format options. It seemed hung up, so I re-tried the current then previous software versions, and now Aja presets don't show up at all.
