I am considering getting an MR816X. I am running Cubase 7 x64 on Windows 7 Pro x64. I have an Asrock Extreme 6 motherboard with onboard firewire that uses a VIA6308s chipset. I have looked at https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/knowledgebase_new/show_details/kb_show/mr816-firewire-compatibility/kb_back/2020.html?tx_p77sbknowledgebase_pi1[product]=157 but as this is talking about XP SP2/Vista I am unsure when it was last updated.
Does anyone know whether the MR816X will run happily on this firewire chipset?
