Unhappy No sound from OMNI ALT Monitor output!

All of a sudden my OMNI ALT Monitor output is dead. Actually, not completely dead; I hear a faint sound through my ALT monitors. The Monitor tab in Hardware Setup lists:

MAIN Stereo routed to Analog DB-25 outputs 1-2
ALT Stereo routed to Analog DB-25 outputs 7-8

To test physical connections & cables, I briefly set ALT to "none" in the Monitor tab in Hardware Setup, enabled outputs 7-8 in I/O Setup, and then routed a ProTools channel to outputs 7-8. Glorious sound came forth through my ALT speakers.

Re-setting ALT to outputs 7-8 again, and pressing ALT on OMNI: No sound.

I've searched this forum to no avail; am I missing something?

Default Re: No sound from OMNI ALT Monitor output!

Same issue here but with 5.1 outputs in a Monitor path. All outputs work fine when not a monitor path. Everything was working like it's supposed to and overnight stopped.

Did you resolve your problem?

not 100 percent sure if im understanding the question but this is what i think...

I think this system was only designed for 2 sets of monitors and designated mains to work on output MON 1-2 and alt to work on any or all of the db25 channels... so if your trying to run your main AND your alt monitors from the DB25 it won't work due to the way they made the OMNI... because if they allowed that, you could theoretically run more than two sets of monitors... i'm not excatly sure if thats what your doing but that might be the answer... I have 2 sets of monitors working here i got my Main monitors going from Main out 1-2 on the back of the omni using trs to xlr cables and my alt on DB 25 channel 3/4 using a db25 snake to TRS works great... hope this helps

Moongun, did you try a reset to factory specs? Then set up your paths again.
