Is this the DM7

Is this the DM7? The auction is simply called SGI PCI SDI Video Option for Fuel and I've never seen one before. Searching for 030-1711-001 and 030-1712-001 doesn't help.

The seller (Doug Mashek) is a forum member, perhaps he'll see your post and respond with some additional detail (an hinv -vm would be a very nice addition to the forum knowledge base).

Not a lot of info out there on the DM7. There's a brief mention of the DM7 inside the IRIX 6.5.30 kernel inventory file....

Code: Select all

#define INV_PCIGVO_DM7  25      /* Rainier PCI-Graphics to Video Out option card */
....not even (the now defunct) TechPubs had much, as I rcall there was a table of contents for the DM7 User Guide, but no actual content beyond that.

GVO is graphics-to-video. With the graphics card unchanged (VPro), I would expect something with DVI input and SDI output.

Something like this: SGI DVI Video option for Fuel? Again, searching for 030-1894-002 yields nothing... I've e-mailed mashek on eBay, but received no response so far.
