I am very interested in the MX02 mini for capturing HD for VJ purposes (feeding a second laptop's output into the main laptop)...

Was ready to buy, but after watching Vade's video on CDM and reading these forums, I am disheartened by how finicky this thing seems to be. Fussy gear is a deal breaker in a performance environment.

Are these problems anomalies or is the MX02 mini just not ready for prime time yet?

Are problems being fixed with firmware upgrades?

Hey lux

I seem to recall a similar vein of questions some months back ... basically its a highly non standard use of the hardware and I seem to remember the would be VJ really struggling with the concepts involved. There was a strong suggestion that he/she didn't really understand what they were doing with regards to video standards (as they were rather more familiar with dealing with computer monitor resolutions and outputs instead of video formats) but that could have been a simple lost in translation thing ... either way I don't recall it ending well :/

All that said, a combination approach, using an MXO on the first laptop (which you would use to scan convert the output to a standard video signal) feeding into an MXO2 Mini on the second laptop ... no reason to assume that would be anything less than rock solid set up.

Best
Andy
