    Premiere CS3 won't seem my 2nd Monitor...

      Hey All,

      I've been searching around and I haven't been able to find an answer to this one.

      This is about CS3 on a Mac, so I'm not sure if this should go to a different forum, but I didn't see any way to post in the Mac folder.

      First off here is my setup:
      Mac Pro Tower Quad Core Intel, 8gb RAM
      ATI Radeon HD 2600 graphics card
      1 LCD computer monitor
      2nd monitor is a Samsung HDtv connected to the 2nd monitor port
      Premiere Pro 3.2

      In the "about this mac" panel the 2nd monitor is recognized and is running at 1920 X 1080 59.9 Hertz (any other hertz rating and the TV won't display the desktop - maybe this is the issue??)

      Anyway - the mac has no problem with it as the 2nd monitor. Final Cut Pro has no problem with it as the 2nd monitor for video playback (full screen video). But When I go to playback settings in CS3, and click the drop down box for external device it isn't even listed. All it has is none, or DV 720 X 480.

      Any ideas out there? I'm working with 1080i footage from an EX1, and have the project set up as such.

      Thanks for any help.
