About Steve

Hi and welcome to my little blog.

This is were I write about the technical projects I’ve had trouble solving, so that my future self can come back and remember what I did.

I also do it so that others may be able to learn and benefit from what I discovered too.

If you want to know more about me, I’ve put a little summary together here: http://bluetomatomedia.com/about

  1. Hi Steve,

    Hope you are well!
    I thought your post would save my life but it didn’t probably due to myself that is reading it.

    I’ve bought a gtx 770 4gb and tried to install it in my macpro 3.1. I’ve plugged the 2 6to8 pin adaptors to the power cables in the mac and connected them to the gpu card.
    The blue light lights up but nothing happens. It looks like the screen is not connected to the card.

    Any ideas on what might have happened along the process?
    Are you based in the UK by any chance?

    1. Hi Joao,
      Sorry to hear it’s not working. Firstly, I’m in Australia…
      When you boot the computer with these non-mac-bios-flashed cards (basically a PC card), you won’t get a boot logo. I’m pretty sure it will still chime when successful though.
      The difference I have is the 2Gig version (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2048 MB).
      I have a 4,1 MacPro, not a 3,1, but I don’t think should matter as they are both Intel architectures.

      Did you have the latest NVidia CUDA drivers installed before you started?

      This may help too: http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/compatible-video-cards-for-mac-pro-3-1-early-2008.1345150/
      They talk about lack of power for the card? I was concerned about the draw on the power supply for mine too, so only opted for the 2G instead of the 4G.

      1. Hi,
        Thanks for getting back to me.

        Yes I believe so, I’ve installed the web drivers from nvidea with cuda and open gl.
        I’m now updating my os to el captain as I’ve read someone saying (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6pEmIiN4Co) that you need the latest OS installed in order for it to function. Not sure if it will do the trick.

        The worst part is that I bought two cards one for each macpro I have… so that I could run octane renderer. I see you do some after effects as well.

        Well hope this will work, if not I guess I’ll have to re-sell them and by something less strong for my oldies.

        Thanks a lot

  2. Hello Stephen,

    I am writting my comment here as I don’t find where to post it otherwhere …

    I wanted to THANK YOU so much for your article ” Be careful of rogue FireFox Extensions – Posted on September 15, 2020″ !!!!!

    It is 2 weeks, that I was searching what this “smartredirect.de/redir/…” was…

    May I suggest you should reference your Post to “Youtube Downloader” Add-on, so I am sure, it well help a lot of people…

    PS sorry for my “English” .. which, hopefully, is enough understandable to you 😉

    Thanks thanks again !!

  3. Hi Steve I came across your blog as read your article on Zetta2Go, and not sure if this is something you can I help with, I use this playout system for a community radio station in the U.K. but can’t find a support community for it, I’m a relatively newish user but found that lately that my voice tracks/ links are being cut short/ clipped at the very end – this has only started recently and doesn’t happen with everyone, any idea what might be causing that? I’ve tried waiting an extra second at the end but that doesn’t work, any insights or pointing me in the right direction would be much appreciated! Thanks Donna

    1. Hi Donna, in all honestly, you are probably better of contacting RCS UK, as they will be able to solve the problem – that, and you are paying for 24/7 support with them. 🙂
