SSL AWS 948 Drops out of play mode randomly (Logic Pro X)

Hi -

I'm trying to use my SSL AWS 948 in in-line record mode and using the Auto-M function (which is now working properly!).

The problem I'm having now is that the console drops out of "play" mode randomly. The timecode display continues to advance with my DAW (Logic Pro X), but since it is out of play mode, the Auto-M switches from DAW playback to INPUT monitoring.

The point at which it drops out seems random and not associated with a particular time code location or duration of play. It might happen after 10 seconds of playing or 30 seconds, but it happens every time.

I've recently upgraded to the latest ipMidi and it still occurs. I've switched from a network configuration with DHCP to a direct connection to my Mac. Still occurs.

Any ideas?

I'd check the CAT5 interface on the computer's side.. if it's an unpowered router connected with a long CAT5 cable running from your machine room it might be the reason
