Default Mbox 2 Pro Red/Orange Power LED

Hi

I have recently acquired an Mbox 2 Pro. It seems to work but I'm wondering about the fact that the power LED is solid red/orange whereas all of the photos online show the power LED as green.

Anyone have any ideas? I have searched for answers without success.

Cheers
Paul

Well, I can't find any mention of this in any official User Guide but it would appear that the power LED is green if you use the power adapter and amber if you power the unit from the firewire bus.

Can anyone confirm or otherwise?
