Hi,

I'm completely new to Dirac and MiniDSP and I'm really struggling to work it all out. If any devs read this, a basic how-to included in the box would help a lot!

So the problem. I got myself a 2*4hd for xmas and bought the Dirac upgrade as well. So installed Dirac 1.0 onto the 2*4hd and the plugin now recognizes it as a DDRC-24. However, this is where the problems being. After a month now I have not been able to get the Dirac software to recognize the DDRC-24. I've tried all 3 USB ports, I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few times and nothing ever changes.

Getting rather hacked off with it now! best part of 600 euro has been spent for something that doesn't work.

Maybe I've done something wrong? I followed the Dirac 1.0 installation instructions to the letter.

Is there an idiots guide somewhere?

Also, another thing while I think about it. I'm using an Arcam A38 amp, which input do I connect the DDRC-24 to? pre-out? line-in?

You should contact support directly (not via this forum) about your main issues but I'll answer this for you: connect your miniDSP to any line input.

While waiting for support to respond I would read the manual again and make sure you've done exactly what it says. Trying Dirac 2.2.3 (NOT 2.3) would be another way to go, but follow the different process outlined in the Dirac 2 addendum.

Cheers.

I've just realized what I've been doing wrong. I've been trying to run the DDRC-24 through the Dirac 2 software... :oops: :oops: :oops:

Just installed Dirac1 software and it recognized instantly.

I'll hang my head in shame now and then get cracking!
