I just purchased this robust machine from ADK and am now using CS6 cloud. So far, everything is rockin fast. I applied fast color corrector and RGB color corrector to a clip (as I usually do).
The reference monitor will not respond when I have both effects activated. It will respond to fast color alone. It will not react to RGB. The effects are working, as I see changes in the source monitor. I rely on the reference monitor when I color correct. Below are the specs of my new machine. Can anyone advise me where to begin?

Are you monitoring via HDMI on the GTX670,
or are you using a third-party display card?
Was your system delivered pre-configured with CS6 installed?
Does your system include a support warranty?
I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that it is not your PC at fault. RGB breaks my reference monitor also. Now, since I have an ADK PC also, with the same graphics card, a third user will need to verify this bug, but I expect that it is just a bug.
The bad news is that there is a pretty bad bug. If you apply the RGB color corrector, with or without any other effect, the Reference monitor breaks. In a rather interesting way, The composite video works but that is about it.
If someone else will please verify that the scopes on the reference monitor don't work when the RGB Color Corrector is applied, we'll get this bug report into Adobe.
Seriously? So your thought is that it's due to a hardware/cs6 conflict? How are you working around this? This is a real bummer as this is the exact reason that I went with a company like ADK, so I won't have conflicts. They seem to have very good customer support, so hopefully this will be resolved quickly.
No, RGB curves does not have the same issue.
I don't think it is a problem with the graphics card but since we both have the same card we need a third party verification of the bug. Maybe lasvideo will try it out for us?
How about it? Give it a try> Someone? Anyone?
If nobody else has the problem on a different card we'll talk to Eric at ADK, but I doubt that's it.
I can't replicate this. The RGB Color corrector works fine, even when combined with the Fast Color Corrector. No matter what I do, the Reference Monitor is updated as expected, both Composite and Scopes, applied directly to the clip or to an Adjustment Layer, software or CUDA accelerated, different kinds of media...
Basically, I can't get it to break.
OK. What graphics card do you have? I am hoping we can get a GTX680 user involved as well as some other model.
I'll ask Eric to post his findings here. My reference monitor, set to anything other than composite, just sits there like there is a graphics driver issue. So, while the 670 is not on the list, the 680 is, so perhaps that's the difference. Adobe has not tested the 670. Or had not by 6.0.3 and may have by now for Premiere Pro CS-Next.
The plugin does not update the scopes but will update the full screen playback. This happens whether the player is in Hardware MPE mode or Software. That means this is not a Video card issue. This is tied to something else. May be the video driver not accepting the draw information for that plugin or something with the specific media decoding. I am not sure yet.
Also if you render the timeline then the Plugin works fine with scopes and playback.
If you select Sequence settings and then checkmark Max Bit Depth and Render Quality, that will fix the RGB from updating realtime. I am still not sure why Jim's is not showing it but this does fix the player communicating with the video driver.
