Hi Rich

The set up you described will work. There is a limitation that Port B in the FOH rack can output a maximum of 64 channels – so if you want to split 64 inputs to the monitors system, these will necessarily be the same channels output by the Dante card in the xDR-16. One selectable block of 8 of these channels will also be output on the xDR-16 XLR outputs.

Depending on whether you need the extra analogue IO, you could achieve the same thing using Dante for the FOH/monitor split, connecting the two racks to a Gigabit Ethernet switch. You could then plug your PC into this switch for recording. This system would have the same 64-channel Port B limitation as the xDR-16 system.
