I’m trying to set up my MR816 to output audio through the spdif out. I have a Neutrik converter which takes the signal from S/PDIF and converts it into 110 ohm for the AES/EBU cable connecting to my Genelec 8240:s.
Problem is, I get no sound at all, and it’s not the speakers per se that are the problem. Probably I’m missing something with the routing in MR editor? Here’s what I do:
In the FW driver setup, I choose ADAT + SPDIF, and in the MR editor setup I choose (under general settings) OUT as MR816X and S/PDIF (coax) - the in remains at MR816X Analog 1/2. Then in Digital I/O I choose ADAT (1-6) + S/PDIF (coaxial).
I don’t get a sound. I do get meters moving in the MR editor (both in the “DAW” section and the “output” section, but I do not get output through my speaker - nor even through my headphones. When I switch back to analog, I get sound through my secondary monitors and in the headphones as well.
What am I missing?
