Hi to everyone.

Today after some testing I realized that the left channel of my Flying Cow is dead, kaput!, nothing, nada. This is the second Flying Cow thath goes down with our system.

I remember reading here that the FC wasn't the greatest option for HDX, so I've got two questions:

First, is it worth fixing it? (I guess not because our VAR -that now is out of bussiness- just replaced the first one even though it was out of warranty)

Second, what would be a suitable replacement, for now I am using a fostex D-5 as D/A/D converter but it is not the best option in the long term.

Thanks and best regards,


Media 100 HD (HDX) v10.1.4
Dual 2Ghz G5, 2GB RAM
MacOS 10.4.8

I've only ever used a Cow converter with m100 HDx hardware.

A colleague of mine tried AJA's converter with M100 HDx and it does NOT work. It seems like it'd be a great solution, but media 100 hdx and the AJA audio A/D/A converter do NOT work together.
