Trouble using DP3 with 2408 and HD192

As you already know, I bought a HD192, now I'm having trouble assigning anything through the 2408.

1) The 2408 is connected via lightpipe to the d8b
2) The HD192 and 2408 are connected to the PCI-424 card.

If I try to assign anything on the d8b to DP (2408), the Audio Monitor doesn't get a reading. You know how the Audio Monitor turns red when you assign a channel, well it doesn't even do that. I can't get it to record.

Does the HD192 take priority over the 2408? It shouldn't, and I never had trouble before the 192.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Trouble using DP3 with 2408 and HD192

my audio monitor only turns red when record is enabled... is that what you meant?

i know this would mean repatching i/o's in DP but have you tried to switch the firewire cables on the two devices? i have my 2408 first and my 1296 second.

has it always been set up the same way or did you just recently change it?

Yes it is.

I tried changing the Firewire cables on the 424 card, making the 2408 first, and 192 second. I was now able to use the 2408 via lightpipe, but the 192 wouldn't record, cause the Audio Monitor wouldn't turn red.

I bought the HD192 a couple of weeks ago, and had the 192 connected to port 1, and the 2408 to port 2 on the 424. I've been using the 192 to record, and never bothered assigning anything from the d8b via lightpipe until tonight.

I don't understand it. I wonder if this is a flaw within the driver.

****!!! I just figured it out. The re-connected the HD192 into port 1, and the 2408 into port 2.

Again, when I had the 2408 able to record, the Audio Monitor channel one wouldn't turn red. So by chance, I opened up the Audio Monitor window, and noticed that ADAT 1 was now (In) 13. I added another track ADAT 2, which made it 14 and so on.

The first 12 channels cater to the 192, and the next 24, to the 2408. I guess it all makes sense.
