I have a Mac Book Pro and I understand that the MXO2 connects to the MBP via the ExpressCard/34 slot. I also have a G5, and if I understand correctly, it will connect to my G5 with a PCI Express adapter card. What if I have an onder G5 with the PCI-X slots. Does the MXO2 come with both ExpressCard/34 & a choice of PCI-E or PCI-X card? If only a PCI-E card what can I do to connect to my G5 with PCI-X?

Thanks

Hello

Designed to streamline editing workflow with Apple Final Cut Studio and Adobe Production Premium on MacBook Pros and Mac Pros, Matrox MXO2 provides broadcast-quality input/output, monitoring, and up/down/cross conversion.

The system requirements for the MXO2 are :
- Support on Apple Intel-based systems and the Leopard O/S (will not work on Tiger).
- On a laptop, the MXO2 requires to be plugged into the external express/34 slot found on all MBP.
- The MXO2 requires an internal x1 PCIe card on Apple towers. It cannot be connected to a PCI-X slot.

Therefore, the MXO2 will not be compatible with older G5 models.

Have a great day
