And I demonstrated it to Yamaha in person and they agreed it was unworkable.

So the unit went back to Yamaha (2 of them in the end.)
There is no fix. It is a bad product if you are using their analogue outs. Yamaha Japan said their engineers would try to work on a firmware fix but couldn't promise a date (and we tried older firmwares and they all had the same problem.)

My advice: get rid of it. It was such a phenomenal waste of time in the end (especially when Yamaha's own people couldn't get it to work without the hiss in Japan or Los Angeles.)

(And of note: the Xmon, a QSC Qsys, the JBL Intonato, and a MTRX had none of these problems in the same room. We ended up going with MTRX + SPQ since it tied in best with the S6)
Damn, that’s disheartening to hear. I looked into the MTRX but just adding and spq card and 8out is somewhere about 9,300 so it’s a big step for a one man band like me.
I found the routing matrix confusing in the MMP, how is the DADmon/ProMon interface? Seems to offer a lot more control.
