Hi Peter

Please also make sure that you are using the latest iLive firmware (V1.54), and check that you have the latest RME drivers and firmware. There are known issues with older versions of both the iLive firmware, and the RME firmware. Also, it’s always worth trying a different cable. Ideally a short one for debugging purposes.

To explain the MADI status indicators, ‘Signal’ means that some kind of digital signal has been detected on an input port. ‘Lock’ means that the card has locked onto a MADI stream. If ‘Lock’ is a green tick, ‘Error’ means that the MADI stream is corrupted somehow. If ‘Lock’ is not a green tick, the ‘Error’ indicator has no meaning.

Hope this helps
