Official DataSat RS20i thread. (Setup Tips, Questions,General Info, etc)
I think I have the error sorted. I went through the log file and found that when the error shows on the screen there is an error in the log that says Dec 693 fw bootloader failed to load. Figured that was my Atmos car acting up. Spoke with ATI support (they looped in the Datasat support) and they came to the same conclusion. We're working out logistics to get the card replaced.
Random unrelated questions -
A few people have mentioned here that the Datasat (and other DSP based pre/pros) doesn't (don't) support more than 7.x.4 discrete channels. If i captured that accurately:
1. What is the point of the H617 add on cards for the RS20i which add 8 channels per card? Just more cloned channels? If yes, couldn't you accomplish the same thing much cheaper with XLR splitters on the channels you would be cloning? Or for biamping? If for biamping, can you set different crossover levels for two outputs on the same channel?
2. Do subwoofers count impact the limit? I know they are the x in the 7.x.4 above but if one sets up 4 independent subwoofers, does it impact the above? If so, does the answer change if you setup 1 subwoofer in the RS20i and then connect 4 XLRs from the RS20i breakout cable to 4 subwoofers and map them to that single subwoofer channel in the RS20i?
If these have been specifically addressed elsewhere in the thread I apologize.
