I've downloaded Snow Leopard 6.0 (Originally I had to re-install Snow Leopard because when I did the software upgrade to 6.2 the MXO wouldn't work. I didn't realize that I had an ATI graphics card and thought I was ok.
Now I have another problem and that is I just purchased Aperture 3 only to find out that I have to have 6.2 to use it.

This is a real problem now because I either use m MXO or I use Aperture 3.
I can't use both.

So-----Is Matrox going to be getting a fix (Beta or other) for those of us who happen to own an ATI card, or are we just SOL.

Eric, the issue seems to be with Snow Leopard's graphics drivers not the MXO driver and therefore it's not something that Matrox can fix at their end, it has to be fixed by Apple... as a fellow MXO user I can tell you that we (you, me, the other users and Matrox) are all hoping that Apple do fix this problem sooner rather than later. Current wishful thinking is that OS X 10.6.3 will bring the OS X graphics driver update that is needed, but there's no guarantee that it will. We just have to wait and see. You can be sure that once a compatible driver is released then Matrox will be rushing to provide MXO drivers to compliment that release.

Thanks Andy. Sure would hate to have to order a different graphic card just because of Apple.

Hopefully the Rabbi will say "I won't be long now". Just kidding,

Andy,

I am curious as to whether you are speaking on behalf of Matrox in posts like the above, or merely providing your own thoughts and speculation.

Cheers,
Kevin

Hey Kevin

Nope, I don't work for Matrox, and no I don't ever speak for them. These comments are all my own thoughts and speculation. With any luck I'm wrong.

New "official Matrox" post suggest good news may be coming to an ATI / MXO combo near you soon. Excellent stuff.
