I have a G5 with optical I/O and a MOTU with the same(?) connected to a
MacBook Pro. Connecting the output of the G5 to a surround receiver lets me
play DVDs with 5.1 so multiple channels are being transmitted.
I have connected these ports between the G5 and MOTU but nothing seems to be
transmitted either direction. The optical ports appear in Sound under
System Preferences on the G5 but not in Audio MIDI Setup.
So here's what I hope to do...I want to share the MOTU between the MacBook
connected with firewire and the G5 connected via optical and (perhaps)
pretending to be an ADAT. The idea is to share audio processing between the
I have been able to get data between two 828's via optical but not computer
828. Any wisdom?
