    New Drivers for Matrox MXO2 Mini---- and MC 5

    Matrox just released the new version 5 drivers for the MXO2 mini. It looks like these drivers are aimed strictly at the Adobe CS5 community and are not approved by Avid. Has anyone tried this driver, or see any reason to even TRY this driver with Avid?

    Cuervo,

    I saw that too, and to be honest, I am not going to alter something that is working for me at this time unless someone shows that there would be some definate improvement.

    Works fine for me. The same as 3.0.1 which was the one I had until now. I'll report if any bug.

    The 5.0 drivers still have the avid compatibility built in them. A lot of users seem to be moving up to it and seeing no new issues in regards to functionality.

    Out of curiousity, what benefit is there from moving from the Avid approved MX02 Mini drivers?

    Judging from the read-me on their website. They made updates to their drivers and CS5 compatibility. But the Avid support is basically the same.

    Based on what has been posted here, I think that I might just "Bite The Bullet" and upgrade from 3.1 to 5.0.

    Thanks for posting your experiences.
