Default Crossgrades from PCI to PCI-E discontinued ??

I just heard from a dealer that Digi has discontinued HD Accel PCI - PCI-E card crossgrades with no heads up, IE as of this morning.

If its true, I hope they reconsider as I have several clients what would have upgraded knowing the program would be discontinued.

Not cool if its true. You should at least announce it ahead of time and /or do a price increase if if Digi was losing money on the crossgrades.

If its false, I apologize.

Default Re: Crossgrades from PCI to PCI-E discontinued ??

We got the confirmation from our dealer this afternoon. We were #4 of 11 clients he had to call who were all doing upgrades this quarter. He said Avid/Digi decided over the weekend without telling any dealers.

All we can do now is try to sell our outdated cards and/or systems and either go Native, or convert everything to another system. Did I just hear someone say "Nuendo"?

I understand Avid's reasoning for this, as it's a BIG money difference for them, but a warning would've been nice.
