Default HD Driver 12.8.2 - Does it include a firmware update???

Hello,

Does anyone know if the new HD Driver 12.8.2 R2 Mac includes a firmware update for the HDX card?

I do not want to slide a system drive to a computer that is not mind and upgrade the card's firmware in case their in house PTHD version is lower than this one.

Thanks,

A

From the troubles that I've seen on this board, I think I'd stay with 12.8.1. I did.

Sorry Steve. Do you mean you're staying with a lesser version of Pro Tools itself or the driver version?

Lesser version i.e 12.8.1 since many people have issues with 12.8.2 lag and other bugs.

Thanks for chipping in Christopher.

Would you know if the 12.8.2 HD driver contains a firmware update?
