Go to Setup--->Peripherals--->MIDI Controllers. Under Type Select HUI and then in the Receive From/Send To drop down menu select your device. It may come up under a generic name depending on how you have it set up in Audio MIDI setup (on a mac)

I put receive from: Mbox Port 1 and Send To MCU Port1

(It only lets me put Mbox Port 1 under the pull down menu for 'Receive From')

Between PT and my MCU Pro it seems to be working in reverse. I can drag the faders with the mouse in PT and the MCU's will move, but it won't work the other way around. Is there a setting affecting that?

I also get an error dialog constantly popping up in PT while the MCU is on.

It reads...

"Pro Tools is unable to communicate with HUI. Power cycle HUI and check its connections."

I looked on digidesigns website and it wasnt of much help on the forum cause I couldnt find the menus they were talking about. Seized to exist in mine.
