Apogee Symphony Mobile + laptop MBP power charger issues

i had a 2006 macbook pro for 4 years, using the symphony mobile card with it for 9 months. wonderful!

i just got a new Macbook Pro 17" and am discovering that WHEN the laptop is charging (plugged in) the Apogee Symphony Mobile card is dropping in and out... causing digital pops/clicks... not maintaining connection with Maestro.

At first i thought maybe it had something to do with the fact that the power was on the same circuit as the converters, but i dont think thats it (and shouldn't be an issue in the first place)

its totally stable when the laptop is running on the battery... plug the charger in and the symphony connection goes to ****.

oh dear... someone please help me. i'm almost positive i have fully upgraded firmware/software top to bottom (as of march this year). am i missing something? apogee, help!!!

i'm a moron; went from version 5 to 16 earlier this year, but forgot the update to version 16cs which is for the unibody mpb's ONLY! no wonder i didn't install that update before.

fixed. knock on wood.

definitely something strange happening when the battery nears 100% on a 2010 17" MBP with the symphony mobile card. maestro freaks out, the converters spit pops and clicks, connectivity stammers ....
