    Blank Preview and Source monitors


      Howdy. I just recently built a new editing system and switched from Final Cut Pro 7 to Premiere Pro CS6. I am having a problem that is kinda made it difficult for me to use my new machine for what I built it for. I can't see any video in the preview or source monitors. I can hear the audio when I play back a timeline sequence. I currently have a Apple Thunderbolt display connected to the new Asus P8Z77-V motherboard and a EVGA GTX580 Classified for the MPE (CUDA). There is a application call Lucid Logix Virtu MVP that is suppose to allow switching between the integrated grahics and the PCI-e graphics. I had this on there but it wasn't working well with it on there. I could get the video to playback when had the device manager open. But I havent been able to get it to output any video at all lately. I just recently uninstall the MVP and went into the bios and dissabled all that switching stuff. So now what is on my Thunderbolt display should be rendered from the Intel graphics and the GTX580 shoud do the MPE support. Am I correct it should work this way or is this set up with the Intel Graphics and Nvidia not even compatible. My biggest problem is I have this thunderbolt display I am trying to use cause I have it and it is extremly nice to use. Otherwise I would just put a second Nvidia card in the machine to do the GUI rendering.


      Also One reason I need a dual Graphics set up is for running Davinci Resolve. It doesn't like the system using the Nvidia card for the GUI rendering.


      Here is the specs to my build
