That may be the official position but the TripleHead2Go forum, which runs in parallel to the Parhelia forum, is essentially 99% gaming related. Unike GoFlight, who think it illogical that cutomers expect them to keep an eye on views on their own forum, Matrox have a chap who seems to watch full time, during office hours. He usually replies within minutes. When I posted an email direct to Matrox, re my G550 DH problems, I got a reply within 5 minutes. Impressive when it was 2100 on a Sunday!

Matrox dropped out of the gaming card business some time ago and only design for professional applications now. I got the card because of this - FS is a secondary consideration. My guess is that the reverse is probably true for everyone else here. I've never had an NVidia, ATI or Geoforce card in my life and their designations mean nothing to me when users say they have a 5700 or 6800.. <vbg> bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Gerry Winskill Sent: 19 November 2006 17:45 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: FSX Horizon Scenery Try a question to the Matrox support forum. They are the most helpfull I've come across and the Parhelia seems to be widely used. Gerry Winskill Bones wrote:It won't run. I tried the demo and I could only get Gmax objects to display properly. The test of the sky and ground was a rubbishy mash of corrupted bitmaps. FSX obviously doesn't like the Parhelia card. bones -----Original Message----- From: jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jhb_airlines-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Gerry Winskill Sent: 19 November 2006 16:35 To: jhb_airlines@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [jhb_airlines] Re: FSX Horizon SceneryThe bad news here is that my plans have been somewhat turned upside down as I now have FSX - given to me as a thank you present. It will have to sit in its box on my shelf until I have a PC capable of running it... which is at least six months away. <g> bonesI'd give it a try John, if you have the hard disk space. You may be pleasantly surprised at how it runs. Gerry Winskill
