Just received my G-raid and PCI express fw 800 card yesterday. Reading docs to install and I’m looking for a slot config for the g-5. Is there any recommended slot location for the card? I know the “other” edit platform is very particular about what slot is used for secondary cards. I wasn’t sure if there was a similar issue with bus segments, etc. Anyone done this recently?
Just thought I’d share what I found out. Docs didn’t help much. In the PDF they showed how to hookup the G Raid (like anyone with a pulse couldn’t figure that out). The picture depicting hookup to the secondary FW card shows the card in the top slot, #4. So I put it there, works fine. Maybe it’s just me but if I were selling a product, especially an add on card I’d provide adequate info on installing it.
