Hi there,

Hoping to find a bit of info out from someone with a cMP and an actual (UNflashed) Mac Edition of the Sapphire 7950 GPU.

With the advent of FCPX 10.1, broadcast monitoring is now a built in feature for supported Macs. In my research it seems that the only supported macs are the nMP and any rMBP (to my knowledge all rMPB models have an HDMI port).

While considering the purchase of a 7950 it occurred to me that the HDMI port on the 7950 might also enable this built in broadcast monitoring over HDMI.

Anyone in a position to test this out and report back?

Thanks much in advance for your time!

Under "Window" you can choose " Show viewers on second display" and the viewer show up as fullscreen on your HDMI monitor. It is actually moved there. So there is no viewer left on your computer screen. I have used a Black Magic Intensity Pro card for monitoring but it have never worked properly. This is the only way to do it with 7950 for now. I will test this out from now just made it to work. If anyone have more information and alternatives please let us know.
