Hey guys!

Today my MSI R9 280x 6GB has been delivered :)
I moved my Chimera boot loader to my EFI partition using this fantastic guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/401-install-bootloader-extra-efi-partition.html
Now the system is running using the R9 280x and the system information provides theses facts:

luxmark calculates about 2200 points.
But the dvd player does not work: "There was an initialization error. A valid video device could not be found for playback. [-70017]"
When I try to run FCPx 10.1.1 I could open a timeline (i.e. BruceX), but the beach ball appears and I have to kill it.
Maybe it's not a problem, but playing back RedRaw in Davinci Resolve is about 15 fps. I expected a little more.

What might be the problem? Anything I could do?

Cheers,
Dogman

A quick update:
I think it's not a FCPx problem since I noticed no video is playable using the quicktime player. I get this error: "The document “xyz.mov” could not be opened. An unknown error occurred (-101)"

Maybe this is a sound problem. My audio in- and output devices are empty and the volume fader is grey and all down.
any ideas?
