When I connect mine, it disables a lot of OS keyboard shortcuts, and my system gets wacky. BMD tech support has told me twice now that is it OSX and not their stuff. Bull...
Yes, BMD hardware has issues with OSX, and BMD is very slow and reluctant to fix it. I regret the purchase of my Mini Monitor, wishing I had stuck with AJA. But then with AJA hardware, I don't get broadcast monitor output for Resolve. They have us by the balls.
Thanks for the reply. I haven't had quite that many issues fortunately.. The Mini Monitor has been rock solid on the 2012 iMac I was using prior to buying a Mac Pro. For me it's purely a Mac Pro issue, and only while using FCPX.
Looks like my best option might be to start using the Mac Pro's HDMI out for monitoringin FCPX and only use the Mini Monitor with Resolve - although I've got a slow week so maybe I might throw Yosemite at it and see if that makes any difference.
Jeff and Ben,
Do you know if BMD installs kext(s)?
Yosemite requires signed kexts so just wondering if that could be issue.
This new requirement is causing some issues like with turning on Trim enable.
Just thought I throw it out there.
Hope this helps, Greg
With a clean install of the final version of Yosemite, FCPX and the BMD drivers are now rock solid. I used to be lucky to go 24 hours without a kernal panic but it's been almost two weeks without any issue.
In my case, I suspect hardware may have been the cause. After carefully making notes about everything I did on clean installing Yosemite, I discovered I had a USB3 hub that caused FCPX to freeze if I plugged my Avid Fast Track Duo into it and installed the BMD drivers.
I think under Mavericks this combination was causing a Kernal Panic rather than just locking up. Whatever the cause, my Mac Pro and FCPX are now the most responsive they've ever been.
