The Behringer AD outputs ADAT, and the DA accepts ADAT. HD cards accept digi HD protocol. You need at minimum a 96i. It has 8 analog ins and outs on its own, and also has 8 channels of adat at 48k.
I would forget both the ADA8000 and the 96i.o and get another Lynx, the 8 channel version with the HD card.
You need a tech. If you've got an HD2 rig and couldn't figure this out with a Google search, you need a tech.

I've been trying to research all over the net and can't find any info
thanks in advance
