Mac Book Pro 17" CS6 crashes when setting output to second monitor.

May 7, 2012 8:58 AM

I am testing out the trial version of Premiere CS6 and the program keeps crashing when I try to set the video output to my second monitor via a DVI connection.  Anybody else having this problem with the Mac version?

 

Mac Book Pro 17"

2.2Ghz I7

8 GB

AMD 6750M 1025MB

    I have no problem connecting a monitor to my MacBook Pro via mini-DVI. I'm using one of the Apple monitors. Tell us a bit more about how you are connecting. You say DVI, but is it actually via mini-DVI cable? Is it a mini-DVI port? Are you sure it's not a Thunderbolt port?

    Good news. I'm glad it's working for you after all.

    I am using a mini display port to DVI adapter and it is a thunderbolt port.

     

    Just for my own edification, how does that work?  I thought DisplayPort and Thunderbolt were two different protocols, with different ports and different cables.  I get the DP to DVI adapter, but how exactly does TB come into it?

    On Apple devices, there is a connector for carrying DVI and Thunderbolt. Different protocols and different wires, but one housing for the connector.

    So you could plug either cable into the same port?  Sort of like a combo 1/4" - XLR connector on some pro audio gear?
