I have heard via the DVXuser board that good monitoring results can be obtained using Apple Cinema Displays, but hadn't seen that mentioned on your website. Can the HDMI output from the MXO2 family drive a cinema display with some type of adapter. If so, please specify the adapter HDMI to DVI.

Presently, I have two Apple Cinema Displays driven by two separate video cards on a MacPro 8 core. Will the MXO2 family drive a third monitor, either an additional Cinema Display or an HDMI TV.

Thanks in Advance,
Grant

Sorry Grant

No, the ACD's are not a good match for the MXO2. Better to get a good quality HDMI TV with native 1920x1080 panel as per the recommendations

... better still, get a proper video reference monitor.

Will the MXO2 family drive a third monitor

Note that the MXO2 is strictly a audio and video I/O unit for use with supported applications, it does not provide an "extended desktop".

Best
Andy

Thanks for the reply about the ACD issue, I'll go with a 1080 HD monitor of some sort.

I should have been more specific on the third monitor question. If I add a MX02LE or MiniMax and a HD monitor, will that effect my existing dual monitors arrangement in any way?

Thanks,
Grant

Hey Grant

Nope, not at all. Your existing desktop display setup is unaffected.

Cheers
