2408mkIII word clock woes

I have a 2408mkIII feeding via. lightpipe into and from a Sony DMX-R100 console. Al of the conversion happens in the Sony, I only use the digital i/o of the 2408. I clock it all with a Big Ben.

For some reason, the 2408 will not work with the word clock input. The sony is set to word clock in, and it is synced up no problem. If I set the 2408 to word clock in, the audio goes away although the green output lights on the 2408 still light. The only way I have gotten things to work is to have the 2408 set to ADAT to get it's clock source. So the sony is getting word clock, and the 2408 is getting it from the sony. I suppose this is okay, but I'd really like to do it right (have everything get it's own direct word clock signal)

Any Ideas???

Thanks!

P.S. I have checked cables and word clock generator.

I had a monstrous time syncing my 2408mkIII to word clock in. I'm now using a Mytek8x192 for my conversion, going to the 2408mkIII via ADAT, and then into Cubase SX3. Not until i spent two full days reading the cuemix software manual did i eventually figure it out.

what DAW are you using? the software has to be setup correctly for the word clock in to work properly with your motu.

I'm using DP 5.12

I just don't think this should be that difficult. I don't even see where I could change any settings other than clock source.

I have (3) 2408 MKIII's synced to my Rosendahl Nanosyncs which also clocks my Grace m906 and PT HD Rig. I have NEVER had any clocking issues at all. I wish I could help.
