On the HDMI out, from what I've seen the HDMI has to be on and functioning as an extended desktop (not mirroring), then launch FCP X and it will see it. It's not as true as a BMD or AJA device. It is operating in computer monitor type color space. For example, I can hook it up to the DVI port (with an HDMI adapter) on my flanders scientific, but I have to switch the input mode of the DVI to RGB, not YUV. If I hook up a BMD device like my ultra studio via HDMI to this same DVI port, it operates as YUV. Also, it's still functioning as a computer monitor. You can run your mouse over the image while it's playing. I don't think it will support interlaced.

But that's just my experience using the HDMI port on my 5770 GPU on my old (2006) mac pro. The nMP may work differently, but from what I've heard from users it doesn't appear to.
