Default Re: Magma PEHIFX1 PCIe Host card for PCI expansion chassis

I could be interested, i currently have a P7R4 64bit chassis that uses 2 of the high density SCSI type connections to run at full bandwidth but runs fine at 32 bit bandwidth using just 1 cable connection, it may or may not work i dont know but before we get to that......
Regardless of what happened when you sold/sent it to this other buyer, when you used it originally did you run a PT HD system in your chassis and did it work well?
Thanks!

I have not personally used this in my studio, but it came from an HD studio using a p13r and a quad g5, they upgraded to a macpro/pe6r4i setup. I bought their p13r, and this came with it. I ended up splitting this card up from the p13r, the p13r was one of the older dec chip versions that only work with ppc macs... The reason they had to upgrade.

This buyer was trying to use this with the 6-slot digidesign "expansion|HD" chassis that uses the ethernet cable(yeah, the one thats not made by magma ). Apparently a "mac tech" sold him a magma expansion interface card and put it in one of the slots, and connected it to this card.... Then told him that this card was bad because it wasn't communicating with the chassis. Magma told me that it was extremely unlikely that this would work, since the digi chassis used a completely different bridging method than the magma's do... I have never, ever heard of anyone even trying this, so that's why I'm not sure if this could have damaged the card or not.

Not sure if this would work with your 64 bit chassis. I know there are a few people using this card with the smaller magma 4slot, 3slot, etc. chassis with mac pros and hd systems(so long as they have the pericom chipset), but those are all 32 bit chassis afaik. Probably best to email magma and find out, but I have a feeling that if it were going to work, you'd have to put a 32 bit expansion interface card in the chassis, if thats even possible.

Attention DUC user CharlesT: I got your email through the DUC, and it sounds like this card will work for your application, but I am unable to respond, I tried sending from two different email accounts and the message just comes back as undeliverable. Your DUC account doesn't allow me to send you email. You might also want to check and make sure that your DUC profile has the correct email address.

Hi John,

Strange about the email situation. I thought there was something weird going on. I'm pretty sure the card will work for my setup as long as it hadn't been damaged in the previous procedure (highly doubted anyway). Send me a reply on charlesturkmen at yahoo dot com and we'll work out how to proceed.

Thanks,
Charles

Okay, looks like Charles chassis is not compatible, so this is still available.
