FCP HD problem

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I recently bought a second 160Gb HDD for my Mac and decided to set up a RAID 0 array with the original drive to try and gain some speed when using FCP HD. Needless to say this required a format of the system drive....

SOOOooo after spending two days backing all my data onto a (hardly used since the purchase of my G5) PC I took the plunge and formatted the drive, set up a RAID 0 array and reinstalled OS X.

Unfortunately when I have reinstalled FCP HD the "Digital Cinema Desktop" option that I used to use to preview my work on a TV via SVHS from the Radeon 9800 Pro is no longer there

Apples support forums say that this option has disappeared for PCI cards and remains only for AGP cards but I can't find it anywhere since the format/reinstall. I've tried trashing the FCP prefs and restarting to no effect.

Does anyone have any ideas where it has gone?

    just take out the RAID. FCP on a new G5 doesnt need any real performance boosts, especially at the cost of reliability and tech problems.

    Thanks for the advice but that doesn't really help as I've just spent the last week backing up nearly 100gigs of data and then re-transferring it to the G5

    Does no-one have any idea where this option could have disappeared to?
