Default :confused: Pro Tools HD playback thru Mbox/Mbox Micro?

Is it at all possible for Pro Tools HD 8.0.3 to playback through an old school Mbox? I have an Mbox micro that was hoping to use when I'm traveling to edit on flights and such... is that even possible since it's traditionally an LE device?

Also along those same lines... is it possible to connect an original Mbox for the same reasons? More specifically this time though, I am most interested in playing back through good speakers via the stereo outputs on the rear if I'm forced to work away from my studio.

Anyone out there that can point me in a good direction here?

Thanks.

HD is not compatible with any LE interface. You need LE to use withMbox. Note that the original Mbox is not compatible with LE newer than 8.0.1, so a Snow Leopard machine needs to get a newer Mbox 2, Micro, Mini or 2 Pro and use 8.0.4.

As mentioned HD and LE interfaces require separate software. However the sessions created between the 2 are interchangeable. So you can easily work on a session created in HD on an mbox. But as stated the original Mbox has reached it's end of life, so an Mbox 2 would be a better starting point. And would include the PTLE software to use with it.
