Hi,
Any help would be most welcome.

The title pretty much says it all. When I click "Tools/Hardware Setup" the Matrox Utilities opens, but under "Special/Device" the MXO2 is not listed, and I'm not getting an image. I uninstalled the Matrox Utilities and reinstalled them, but no luck.

I'm using a trial version of Avid right now, we have a v6 licence and are considering upgrading, but in the meantime we just need to test this system.

Thanks for your feedback, cheers,
Damien

Avid 8.3 and Matrox did not play nicely together at first, it was a driver issue. I believe they have since resolved this. I don't have the link available right now but you can look into Matrox forum(s) to find the topic and possible solution with driver download link.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback. Going through the Matrox forusm I came to the conclusion I needed to instal Yosemite and the latest Matrox drivers (4.5). Did that, and still no video output...

Cheers

Okay,

Looking in the wrong place, my monitor's HDMI input seems to not be working...

Cheers everyone, sorry for the bother, now if only I could go back to Mavericks.

Did you enable the "use hardware" button? (by default it lives on the right side of the button bar at the top of the timeline window). If that button has a red circle with a slash through it displayed, the hardware will not be used. Click it and make sure it's enabled (i.e., no circle/slash) before concluding that your hardware is faulty.

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback. I did press the use Hardware button. It's really odd, like I said, my monitor's HDMI port was not working for a while, during which time I struggled. I ended up using a HDMI to DVI converter, but only after having installed Yosemite and the Matrox 4.5 drivers, and that worked. Then I retried the HDMI, and low and behold it stared working again.

Media Composer did crash a few times, particularly (but not only) after going into the Matrox Control Panel to change settings. I do feel that MC is not very stable under Yosemite. I may try switching back to Mavericks at some point, it's not quite clear if MC 8.3 is supported with the Matrox 4.2 drivers or if one needs the 4.5 drivers, which are said to be for Yosemite only.

Cheers
