Sounds like a tech support ticket that is already active and looked at by our team. Correct? We don't have any issues here from our side and haven't see others either so our team is investigating with the info we asked over the tech support ticket. Easiest to use one path of communication. Thanks!

no I have not reported to support tech

I have 2 Macbook Air's one MBAir(a) I had previously ran MiniDSP to setup my DDRC88a and another MBAir(b) I had never used. So I was going to install / update with latest Firmware April 2016, I had not ever updated since I bought in Sept 2015.
But, that MBAir(b) had just recently updated to MacOS Sierra, which I used to download version 107-beta from user downloads. Unpacked and tried to run, opened and nothing happened, repeatedly. 107-beta had the firmware folder and Mac and Windows versions of "DDRC_88.dmg and MiniDSP_8x8_IO.dmg and Tech Note 001, pdf." but no calibration file (nanoAVR). Anyway-
So I went back to MB Air(a) which has MacOS El Capitan and downloaded 107_beta again, and installed the update as directed in Tech note 001. Installed DDRC88a back into my AV rack. I when I tried to find the calibration tool. Not found in USERS Downloads, The only place I could find it was on my MBAir(a) which I originally used last year. So ended up copying it to thumb drive to get it on MBAir(b). Now that would run with OS Sierra and which I used the tool last night on my DDRC88a. Worked! seems to be working good at this point. Anyway that why I was looking for the Calibration Tool on your web site and couldn't find, which lead me to ask on this forum how to get latest calibration tool.

Hi Pwalsh2

Thanks for the follow up and sorry for confusion.
Just to double confirm, is everything running as it should now?

Not sure what you mean by everthing?
Still don't know where to get latest calibration tool from your web site.
DDRC-88 utility won't run under Sierra
MiniDSP-8x8-IO utility won't run under Sierra
And I need more time to see if pass thru problem still exist. Only use system on weekends, and not every weekend.
Yes I did find workarounds.

@ pwalsh2

Ok, very confused indeed.. :-)
I thought that the trick that you explained above and where you said "Worked! seems to be working good at this point" implied that it was indeed all working. So it's "not working"...
a) For Sierra, please see the post here: www.minidsp.com/forum/announcements/1257...lugin-sierra-mac-osx
Our team is investigating what got broken by Sierra over last week update.

b) For the software it will be under your userdownloads section where all software are stored as per user manual. Your account is all set for access based on "pwalsh2"
