    ** UPDATE **

    It would seem that what appeared to work didn't. There is no output to monitor and he can't record from the breakout box.

    During installation, it appeared as though it was installing a driver for the Rex, that led to a false assumption that if you run Edius with an existing project and were able to play the timeline that the Rex was working. After asking my friend to do some additional tests, he discovered that the Rex no longer works under 4.51c just as Canopus had indicated.

    Sorry for getting everyone's hopes up.
    Dell Inspiron 13-5378, 2-in-1, Win 10 Pro 64 bit OS, Intel i5-7200 64 bit 2.7 GHz CPU, 8GB RAM, Edius v10.10.7056.

      Later I will be trying to tweek the driver. Maybe I can make it work.

          It is a real tribute to Canopus's scalable technology ethos that we Rex RTPro users are all hanging out for current drivers for these venerable cards. I still have a REX RTPro system that is perfect for SD applications and it is indeed ironic that Canopus's own vision has exceeded it's ability to support the flagship card that represents that vision. But lets not forget that REX is still working with older versions of Edius and still doing a great job!

          I just wish that fabled retired Japanese software engineer that used to write the REX drivers somehow comes out of retirement to write his own current drivers cause I would pay for them!

            Do you know how old the RexRT is? It is unheard of that a company supports hardware that is 10 years old with current software. I want you to take a look at the Matrox cards and let me know how they do it :)

            It is using PCI 5v (Which is being removed off the map as we speak). Very soon, all computers will have PCIexpress slots only and they will stop carrying legacy PCI slots.

            It's time to upgrade, my friend. I am sure the RexRT has made you a lot of money and has paid for itself dozens of times already. Sorry to be so blunt, but it's reality.

              Yes, I too would pay for the driver set!! If I could get 4.51c to work with the DVRex-RT then I would use it until I migrate to HD.

                  Just like me. I too would pay for the drivers until HD, at which point i'd probably go for the NX.

                  The reason i want to continue using the RexRT is the fact its a solid card and has a great external breakout box.

                  But I do give Canopus a thumbs up for keeping the card going for so long.

                    Thanks for this.
                    This is a big bug for me and i need this to work, did try last night and it did not work, I did not have much time so i put the 4,24 back on the system so i can keep on working.
                    My best to you and your friend

                    It would be nice if it worked but please know this is no bug. The Rex has not been supported for years now and up to this point the drivers were pretty much left alone.

                    But with the Vista compliance being a priority I doubt we will see Storm support in the future either.

                    Now, I own all of these products and would LOVE for them to last forever BUT... I have to be realistic... the Rex is around 10 years old. Please look at all of computer equipment and you will see that there is NOTHING that is 10 years old that is worth keeping (to me).

                    The fact that the Rex has lasted this long is one of the reasons I always liked Canopus... they just keep going and going!

                    I do understand your feelings on this but please know things had to stop somewhere... the Rex is old technology and it had to happen one day that updating the drivers was not feasible.

                      Cause nothing lasts forever,
                      and nothing lasts forever.
                      Everything dies eventually,
                      cover your eyes if you don't want to see.
                      And nothing last forever, and nothing lasts forever.

                        Ill be using my long lasting love, my DVRex RT and edius 4,24 on the side.
                        I can not just kill my old bal, after all this time, still working just great with no prob at all.

                          I will lay odds that once you view HD files across that sp it will be hard to use the Rex in SD. I found that to be the case a couple of years ago.

                              But with an SP or NX card, you can capture to a lossless codec or Canopus HQ instead of DV only on the RexRT from an analog source (NX supports upto S-Video IN, SP supports Component IN)...so that's another upside :)
