Three months now and the MX02 is still a brick. Is that it? Has Matrox given up on the new driver for Mavericks? The understanding begged for in the october technical "statement" is wearing thin.

Please Joe, could you define "very soon"? In my book this is not several months. We are end of March now. I have a shiny new Mavericks MacBook Pro collecting dust.

Drivers have been released. Annoucement was made: http://forum.matrox.com/mxo/viewtopic.php?t=13229

If you have registered your Matrox device, you can access your profile and enable the option to receive news and updates from Matrox. By doing so, you will receive an email (to the address you enter in your profile) whenever we release new drivers.

Will there be the chance that FCP7 will be supported sometime soon with the Mavericks driver - or is it time to say goodbye...?

At the moment, we don't have any news to report regarding the release of a Quicktime-based driver to support FCP7 with Mavericks. For FCP7 users, we recommend using 10.7.5 or 10.8.5 with MXO2 2.6.1.0001. This can be setup in a dual boot configuration as follows:

1. Create an extra boot partition on your hard drive.
Instructional video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bea0iNuP5yE

2. Install MAC OSX 10.8.5 on the new partition.

3. Setup your partitions as follows:

    - Boot 1 (existing partition): 10.9.2 / FCP X 10.1.1 / Matrox 4.1.0.0019

    - Boot 2 (new partition): 10.8.5 / FCP 7.0.3 / Matrox 2.6.1.0001


4. To choose which partition to boot from, hold the 'Alt/Option' key on your MAC when you hear the MAC boot-up sound at startup.

Note: These 2 Matrox software versions share the same firmware. Therefore, there will be no need to update the firmware when switching between partitions.

Hi Joe - thanks for the info. I currently run FCP7 on one partition (via MXO2), MC7 on another (via MXO2 mini), and was going to run fcpx on a third.

Unfortunately it's impossible to install anything earlier than Mavericks on late 2013 Macs- it comes with Mavericks and that's what you have to use.

I still have numerous ongoing projects on FCP7, so it means having stick with the old Mac tower for the some time to come.

Unless you know different...

Hi Andrew. I've not heard of MAC systems that cannot run an older OS such as Mountain Lion. Is this something new? If you have a link to an apple spec site that states this, I would like to review it. If we do release something for Mavericks and FCP7, then it will be announced.
