I know this technically should go in the "Classifieds" section, but no one will really get it, so very quickly: I have a Media 100 HDX junction box in perfect working order that I no longer use. Anyone want it for a song (or free), or should I landfill it?
At this point, just the junction box. I have the HDX card in an old Powermac tower... serves as a way to view Media 100 footage that I digitized in HDX if I have to. Haven't tried the latest M100 codecs to see if they will open old files (and then I wouldn't need the card)...

HDX is still an excellent bit of kit, in that I've heard great stuff about its upscaling and downscaling between HD and SD. It's just a bit limited in that it really only works with the G5 PowerMacs, and none of the subsequent Intel machines, =/, on account of their move to PCIe.
There was another thread a few weeks back about codecs: https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/4/867883
The newest codecs can be installed via the 15-day Media100 demo: http://www.borisfx.com/media100/
...although this demo is for Intel Macs. [Be aware also, any files saved in new versions of Media100 won't open in older versions - and the demo has auto-save activated in the preferences by default].
