Matrox MXO-No! *UPDATE*

Had a great telephone convo with Gulio from Matrox. He offers up some troubleshooting advice for my issue:

Dear psalvia,

As per our phone conversation;

1 ) Using the Uninstaller Utility- Uninstall the MXO software which was previously installed.
2 ) Shut down computer.
3 ) Unplug MXO’s AC Power and USB cable.
4 ) Power On computer.
5 ) Run Apple’s updater, Leopard Graphic Update and update Quicktime to version 7.4.5.
6 ) Shut down computer.
7 ) Power On computer.
8 ) After system has booted; power up and plug in MXO’s USB cable.
9 ) Download and install MXO 2.1.2 Drivers
10 ) When Updater asks to ‘Force Firmware Upgrade’, please proceed with it.
11 ) If it installs correctly- verify by going into MXO Control Panel and investigate MXO readings.

If you are still experiencing difficulties with your MXO, please feel free to contact us here at [number removed].

Keep me posted…

Kindest Regards,
Giulio

Thanks again for the tech support Gulio. My fingers are crossed that this works when I get home. But first, taking the G5 into the emergency room…

YouTube HQ Video Comparison

Just stumbled across Editing Organazized and found this enlightening post:

To make YouTube content work on non Flash-based devices (AppleTV, iPhone), recent videos are available in higher-quality, non Flash versions.

To view higher quality MP4 (H.264) versions of videos, add ‘&fmt=18′ to the end of the address.

So here’s a comparison test embed of Jose Gonzalez posted with the Compressor 3 iPhone setting:

Default

with the additional code &fmt=18

Peter Salvia ……………… Cuts Color Compression

Quoting Rory’s immediate, professional, knee jerk opinion:

Hey, I think the top one looks better. No wait, yeah, I can see the difference. But not much.

Thanks for the blog cameo Mr. Sheridan. And thanks Editing Organazized for the awesome and informative post.

Matrox MXO-No!

Just posted this rundown to the MXO user forum and the Creative Cow forum:

MXO not recognized

System Specs:

Macbook Pro 17″ HQ
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

Mac OS 10.5.2

Two weeks ago I had successfully installed my Matrox MXO with the 2.1.1 drivers that shipped with the product. Plugged in today for the first time in two weeks and the MXO is not recognized. I believe all connections are correct, sending DVI out to a Dell 2408WFP.

I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers that shipped with the product to no avail. I’ve tried installing and reinstalling the 2.1.2 drivers downloaded from your website with no luck. The install continues to get stuck when detecting the MXO.

I did update the firmware of the MXO when installing the 2.1.1 drivers. The MXO has the potential to be an essential addition to my hardware setup. Please help I just want this to work!

I guess when it rains it pours with computer issues. It’s really weird to me that the hardware isn’t recognized at all. I’ll update with fixes as I find them.
