    I love my RR-X, its such a treat to playback Dragon footy at full decode - delicious!

    What would make the RR-X truly awesome is if the video outputs were live. There are a number of configurations that start to make a lot of sense if the RR-X can drive a UHD or 4K monitor directly rather than enlisting a beefy GPU with it's TDP (power/heat), bus bandwidth and I/O throughput requirements.

    Has enabling the video taps turned out to be insanely difficult? Have engineering resources been diverted to GPU decoding tech? I've been waiting patiently and trusting that Rob and the gang are doing all they can - but it's been a long time.

    I recognize that companies need to keep some info away from competitors. That said, with all due respect, it would be great to get a progress update of some kind.

    I bought this BMD Decklink card: I think it works with RedcineX and definitely works with Resolve and RRX. Fits in the sonnet chassis with the RRX. Only $300:

    Blackmagic Design Decklink SDI 4K Capture & Playback Card

    Would that work for you?

    Any updates on progress getting the RR-X video outputs enabled…

    Trying to avoid spending a chunk of change on system components to support UHD/4K monitoring that I was expecting the RR-X to drive directly. The RR-X may be worth it's price tag even without live video outs, but it was one of the features I had put on the "pros" list before making the purchase decision. Yes, I knew it wasn't working yet when I got the card, and I'm not screaming for my money back or anything - heck, I'm proud of my "early adopter" scars. That said, I really hope the RedTeam is putting as many resources as practical into solving this issue. Sorry to be a nag, but sometimes the squeaky wheel gets the engineers… ;-)

    +1 for an update please.

    Driving a 4k display through RRX would be Christmas!
