Cool Pro Tools default playback engine changes to airplay

Greetings All!

I am having the joy (snark!) of the Playback Engine in Pro Tools HD 10 changing from HD TDM to Airplay randomly (and often!) when relaunching the DAW. When it has done this, my desired PB engine does not even appear in the pull-down menu and I must quit PT, trash preferences, empty the trash and restart everything. I am working on an older Mac Pro 8-core running OS 10.8.5 - the last OS that supports PT 10. It has always been an aggravating distraction, but it has just gotten to be too much to bear. I do not have any other programs making demands on my interface (192 I/O). I had been running some cracks, but now everything is legit/licensed... ANY thoughts? Thanx in advance!

Lives for gear
Sounds like the I/O is not seen by the DAW - can the computer see that it is connected? Turning the 192 off and on doesn’t help?
