protools console mania

Okay guys I have had such bad luck with this situation.I bought the mackie control surface+c4+extenders to use with protools.C4 is incompatible,Main unit after huge headache works but is limited and extender wont work because apparently Protools doesnt like the surfaces going through a USB interface which I need because my Audio interface only has one midi in.I could use the main unit but it defeats the whole purpose to not have 16+ faders.

Here is my citeria I wish to have in my control surface.Also I forgot to mention that Im running an Maudio interface with mpowered not a HD or LE.
I want atleast 16 motorized faders.
I want decent plugin controls.
I want display names and level meters if possiable
Preferable a usb connection or only one midi in/out


P.S. Also easy compatibility

all non digi controllers (that I am aware of) work on hui protocol, which in theory will have the same limitations as your current controllers, however they might be better programmed (work over USB etc).

The smart AV tango looks cool, but does not yet support pro tools.

There are plenty of threads about the euphonix controllers

Or you could use the iphone application.

or you could use a 003/002 surface combined with a control 8 which apparently works
