new avid box... old HD card... can it work?

Im trying out the new avid 16 in 16 out HD box to see what I think of it sound wise (i know what i've heard other people say, but i need to hear it with my own hears first on my set up as people will say anything with money being waved in their face).

Well... i'd LIKE to try the new Avid box anyway. Not too clear on whether or not if its even compatible with the old HD core card. Looks like the Avid box uses a similar connector for the primary connection, but its like the micro version or something and so i think i'd need an adapter, but before i even start thinking about that, i thought i'd ask here.

if any of you have know anything solid about this, let me know?

Gracias.

They work fine with HD TDM cards. it's one of the systems they're designed for, and yes you do just need an adaptor. It's only a smaller version so they can fit 2 on the HD native card.
