All our latest MediaPress encoder boards work in both G4 and G5 Macs.  But older
MediaPress encoder boards will not physically fit into the G5 PCI slots.

Check the color of the MediaPress board.  Not the color of the daughtercards, but
the color of the main base MediaPress encoder board.  If the color is BLUE, then
your MediaPress will work in the G5 Mac.

If the color of your MediaPress base board is any other color than BLUE, it will
not fit into the G5 PCI slots.  Check our website for your options on upgrading to
a G5 MediaPress board (http://www.wiredinc.com/G5ready.html).
