"Host needs restart" ScopeBox with Premiere Pro CC

I have yet to get ScopeBox to work with Premiere Pro CC via ScopeLink on Mac. I always get the "Host needs restart" error no matter how many times I restart Premiere or SocpeBox. Any suggestions?

Mac OSX 10.9.2
ScopeBox 3.3.7
Premiere Pro CC 7.2.1

Try selecting the Premiere ScopeLink source in ScopeBox (just click on it after adding) and then manually set a format, color space, etc. So, start with 1080i60 YUV 8bit and see how that goes.

Thanks Colin. I think I got it to work. Once I got the settings right - then restarted Premiere it worked, unless I messed too much with the ScopeBox settings then I needed to restart Premiere again. Here are the settings that worked for me:

Device: Premiere Pro
Format: YCbCr 8bit
Colorspace: CCIR601
Frame Size: 1920x1080 16x9

It would be helpful in the future to not have to restart Premiere and have it work like it does in After Effects. Thanks!
