hello, i recently upgrade to Media 100 version 12.1.1 and the HDe hardware system.
I am running on

Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro2,1
Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed: 3 GHz
Number Of Processors: 2
Total Number Of Cores: 8
L2 Cache (per processor): 8 MB
Memory: 16 GB
Bus Speed: 1.33 GHz
Boot ROM Version: MP21.007F.B08
SMC Version: 1.15f3

When trying to play any acquired video back i get this error:

"Could not play because the CPU was unable to process the video quickly enough."

Any thoughts?

Did you set up the PCI express lanes correctly? Unfortunately I cannot find the correct document right now on Media 100s support site (they are restructuring their website currently), but you need to set up your PCI slots correctly. To do this go to YourHD->System->Library->CoreServices and start the "Expansion Slot". There, select a 4* 4* 1* 16* setup, usually the second one from the top. Make sure that your Aja board is in the 3rd slot, and your storage card is in slot 4.

In the "expansion Slot utility" which is located in your System/Library/CoreServices you need to choose the 2nd option and the restart the mac. It will show that the card is not at the best speed, but dont worry its the only working way.
