pro tools le spdif out no out preview on import

okay this might be noob question and i can't find it in the 850 page pt manual so i was hoping one of you know. I'm spdif'ing out of my 002 into my mixer and i was doing analog before. Which is great but now when i want to import a track and I want to "preview" it i don't get sound. I'm assuming because pt wants to use an analog signal when preview files??? but there has to be a way to switch so i can preview though spdif.... right?

what version of pt? this was an issue for a lot of (slightly) older versions. I think it was fixed with 7+.

Protools only "previews" on outputs 1/2 analog. On LE rigs I think S/PDIF is actually 17/18....could be wrong about that though

This is an annoying feature to say the least. It forced me to put a Rosetta 800 first in my chain ahead of my AD16x's for this very reason.

so your saying i basically can't preview my files using spdif or i would have to hook a second par of speakers on my analog out?
