Recently my Mercury Playback Engine just stopped working. Even the GPU sniffer on the MPE hack has stopped working. Here are the specs
2010 Mac Pro still running Snow Leopard
came with Radeon 5870
Adobe CS6 Production
NVidia GTX 470 from macvid cards, properly flashed
Cuda drivers for mac only up to 5.5.24 (latest driver is 6.0.37 which only runs on 10.8 or higher)
The MPE was running on this setup for more than 2 years, and suddenly it stopped
I suspect that I might have to upgrade to Mt Lion (coz Mavericks and Lion is junk) and that MPE has just stopped working on Snow Leopard.

I have a 2012 MBP with Mt. Lion and CS6 and there is no problem with MPE there, but I do like my 3 monitors on the Mac Pro

I have uploaded a pic when trying to run GPU Sniffer "...just leaking"?? Just wanna know if MPE has stopped for Snow Leopard. Any help would be appreciated.

8-core 2010 MacPro 16GB ram
2.5 MBP 6GB ram (metal keyboard, not unibody)

This probably really belongs in the Premiere forum [link].

I haven't heard of the issue that you describe, but that doesn't mean it's not happening. Asking around the Premiere forum might find someone who has seen this before.

Do you have both video cards in the system, or just the NVIDIA?

You'd be better off asking about this on the Premiere Pro forum. After Effects can't use the Mercury plsyback enginr.
