    Wow thanks for the info Darren-have you got pictures?? I'll have to check your site later.

    I think I'll get one.

    I'm surprised Digi got this together so quickly-and well before the upgrade time too!!

  3. Renie,

    You are very welcome! I just got the info and I thought you and everybody else on this forum would love to know. I know it was a hot topic earlier.

    I should have some info up later today. I don't have any pictures yet, but I'll let you know if and when I do.

    cheers! :)
  6. Hello again,

    The exchange prices haven't been released as of yet. I'll let you know when I find something out. I'll post it on our website, and I'll try to get it here timely too.

    Digi has also released info on an HD Sonic Solutions No Noise plug in. Very Cool! I'll try to put more up our website this week end so if that sounds appealing check it out.

    Oh! by the way I've put some more info on the Digital I/O on the site, with an FAQ section.

    From your FAQ

    "Q: Does the 192 Digital I/O support SMUX across the optical ports?

    A: Not at this time."

    Does this mean SMUX will be available with a future software update?

    I'm not 100% sure but I would think that SMUX is a hardware setup rather than just a software configuration.

    Thanks for responding Greg.

    According to the Q & A I copied from Darren site it sounds like S/MUX will come later. If true then the hardware has to be capable and the software has to be programmed to do it. I figured if it was going to happen the hardware must already have the ability. I really just want to know if S/MUX is going to be available.
