Problem w/ ProTools Wave Driver & Apogee


So, gleefully, I unboxed my new ProTools system late this morning:
- HD1 (Windows)
- Apogee AD16X x/ X-HD card
- Apogee Rosetta 200 w/ X-HD card
- Apogee Big Ben
Bunch of time spent installing and figuring things out but I finally got things working in the studio at the station. Started testing things and came to the realization that I can't play back .wav files (via Windows Media Player) or listen to assemblies in CD Architect. (My old ProTools 6.4 using Digi 888|24 interfaces did...)
Does anyone know if the Apogee stuff supports the Digi WaveDriver? They claim that their converters appear to ProTools as 192 I/O's.
I gotta have this capability.

I figured it out. I had to place the Rosetta 200 1st in the Digilink chain, since the WaveDriver wants to use the 1-2 outputs on the hardware. Since the 1-2 outputs on the AD-16X were AES/EBU outputs, I got nothing.
I had to re-map all the Inputs, Outputs, and Inserts to the new setup and then re-map session fader I/Os to make it work.
Log this one down to another cockpit error. (I didn't notice in the Apogee X-HD card manual that you could have either interface 1st in the chain.)
