new HDe system

Good news. I was able to get my HDe system up and running. I'm waiting for some audio cables, so I didn't use the junction box. I have 3 questions now.

1. How do I hook up a composite NTSC monitor to this system? I'm using a PVW 2800 as my deck.

2. I'm creating a dual boot system with FCP HD on the second drive. How do I get the aja drivers onto the second drive?

3. How do I create a dual boot system? I've installed OSX 10.4.8 on both drives. How will I boot up to each drive?

Thanks

Use the green cable of the component cables. or view it thru the deck in e to e if you need to use the component cables to the deck.

2. I'm creating a dual boot system with FCP HD on the second drive. How do I get the aja drivers onto the second drive?
Download them from AJAs website and don't forget the FCP AJA presets.

3. How do I create a dual boot system? I've installed OSX 10.4.8 on both drives. How will I boot up to each drive?

Changing your startup disk
You can make your computer start up from a CD, a network volume, a different disk or disk partition, or another operating system (such as Mac OS 9 if your computer supports it). To do so, you change your startup disk.

Open System Preferences and click Startup Disk.
If necessary, click the lock icon and type the name and password for an administrator user.
Click the icon of the system folder or system volume that you want to use, then click Restart.
IMPORTANT: When selecting a network startup volume, be sure you select a valid network startup volume and not a network install image. Choosing a network install image reinstalls your system software and may erase the contents of your hard disk. A standard network volume icon appears as a globe and Mac OS X system folder. When you select a network volume icon, a message appears in the Startup pane describing the volume. A network install icon appears as a globe with downward pointing green arrow.

Another way to select a startup disk is to hold down the Option key as you restart your computer. You'll see the available startup disks and can select one.

[Greg] "2. I'm creating a dual boot system with FCP HD on the second drive. How do I get the aja drivers onto the second drive?"

Boot with your FCP drive and install drivers there.


[Greg] "3. How do I create a dual boot system? I've installed OSX 10.4.8 on both drives. How will I boot up to each drive? "

System Preferences->Startup Volume. There you can select which HD to use for booting.

[Greg] "1. How do I hook up a composite NTSC monitor to this system? I'm using a PVW 2800 as my deck."

Connect the Composite in of your monitor to the Composite out of your HDe breakout box. (The Y out doubles as the Composite out).

Hey Greg. Well done that's the exact same system I'm running. You won't be dissapointed. Make sure you get yourself some fast storage though.

Cheers
