    Selecting between 2 video output devices

    For years I've been using an Intensity Pro card for video display on my external NTSC HD CRT monitor.  I've just bought a Maxtrox MX02 Mini Max so that I can display 24p on this monitor.  But Media Composer 6.5 still sees only the Intensity card. Is there a way of switching the Video Output to the Matrox without physically removing the card or uninstalling its driver?

    AFAIK, Avid does not see both cards, and there's no way to switch.  Not sure how it determines which one is active.  Try uninstalling the BM driver and see if the Matrox is then used.  If so, try re-installing the BM driver and see what happens. 

    It might be based on slot order or something else...but you can only have one I/O device attached at a time.

    Thank you for your help.  I just got off the phone with Matrox Support, who told me the same thing.  I uninstalled the BM driver and MC was able to see the Matrox.
