    We have a Kona card on our G5 at work & they seem to work ok, I haven't tried HD, as we only work in SD. We also that a blackmagic on a PC. We had a few problems with that, but it was mainly because it was on a PC and at the time didnt fully support Adobe Premiere.

    I was disappointed with Pinnacle as I had a DC30 years a go, & they drop Mac support from that card with osX.

    The only problem we have with the Kona card is if you have the video out monitoring on both Final cut & motion, it gets a bit confused and can crash motion when switching between the two apps.
