Default Re: Pro Control Headphone Send Not Working

My real problem though, is that I am not getting a headphone mix at all through the headphone output. I am told that Pro Tools has the Pro Control set up to play the headphone output though 1-2 but I'm also told that I have to cross patch the outputs in my I/O setup for it to see the headphone outputs.

Any suggestions or help is extremely welcome. I have a 192 I/O, and it goes straight in and out to my Pro Control.

Unfortunately, my pal is not able to come here to my studio, so he suggested I go to the DUC for help. Thanks anyway for the sarcastic remark. I appreciate the humor, but I'm looking for a solution. ;-) I need help from someone who has cross patched their system, and maybe I should have mentioned that in my original thread. Thanks for trying to help though, I do appreciate it. Scott
