Final Cut 7 and Matrox MX02 mini - can't get external viewing
on Sep 21, 2012 at 3:46:49 pm

I am unable to get any external viewing on my monitor with Final Cut Pro and the MXO2 mini. I see the settings for all the sources there (including the matrox ones) but when I go to the "all frames" settings on the external view I get this error: The specified hardware could not be found, check your camera connection.

Make sure the settings in the Matrox control panel match those of your sequence's and source clips.

Then choose the matching setting in the video and audio output selections in the bottom of the View menu.

Then turning on external viewing should work OK.

If your box isn't connected, you'll get that message too... so check that for sure. Also in the control panel, it will report it doesn't see a box if the connection isn't right.

There is an uninstaller for the Matrox software in your apps folder, try uninstallng and then reinstalling the proper drivers for your OS and version of FCP. And give it all another go.

I just received a reply from a tech guy @matrox:

We have some hardware changes on a latest production of the MXO2 boards whereby old drivers cannot be installed.
The solution will be upgrading the OS X to Snow Leopard version 10.6.8 and installing MXO2 driver version 2.5.0.0034. Officially 2.5.0.0034 driver is comparable with OS X Lion 10.7 however, works perfectly fine with Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and is the latest driver that supports FCP 7.0.3.

Perhaps we have similar problem..? My mbp came with leopard and haven't had any issues, until now..guess i'll need to upgrade in order to use the mini.
