Nice stuff. Don't despair. Now you need a newer Mac greater or = to 5,1MacPro plus a modern OS 10.13.5 or 6 seems to be solid.

Well, nobody ever said the HDN card had any processing on it. And you did get the card, the OMNI, PT software and cables, so it was hardly nothing I bought mine with the HD IO instead of the OMNI. Having said that, and knowing several users that spent lots more on HDX cards, I was completely happy with my HDN rig(and wish I could have kept it when I sold the studio)

Given that your current computer is a Mac Pro 3,1...I would think a used 5,1 12 core would be a nice upgrade on a budget(assuming the card is still good). Anyone else in your area with an HDN setup where you could test the card? Did you try it in a different slot? Verifies your version of PT is compatible with your OS? Re-install the driver? Is the Native card selected as the "audio engine"?

Well Those pcie Native HD cards go for less than 600 dollars and the OMNI about 600-700 dollars if lucky. Our friends studio is selling a new PCIe HD native card with OMNI, less than a year old for 1200 and 1700 with PT12HD. Thats a good deal but not cheap as thats where they are now. A HDX card is less than 1600 dollars MINT so all these 10yo hardware is taking the proverbial price dive as they should.
