Have you had a play with it yet, Kevin?

Sort of. The supplied USB cable was broken, that was easily sorted. Need to install M-Crew on some suitable machine, plus the USB drivers. I did try with our main Win10-64 machine and whilst M-Crew would install and run, it couldn't communicate with the device so I guess the required drivers are missing. I think I'll need to install it all on an old XP laptop to have any hope of it working. Also I note from this page that use with the 770 requires a firmware upgrade. I'm not sure if the PCLK I have is already upgraded or if the required firmware update can be found anywhere. Plugged into the 770 nothing happened, although with a replacement USB lead at least the TOSLINK LED on the PCLK lit up.

Dunno. Needs some more faffing about with. Any tips and sources for software appreciated!

I've got no experience with M-Crew / SonicStage and the like, I'm afraid. I'm sure some people here will be able to point you in the right direction though.

Good luck! Will be interested to hear how you get on.

You'll definitely need a 32-bit version of Windows. Windows 7 does fine - the problem I had was the old laptop had a 1.1 USB socket and so the whole thing really couldn't keep up with the data, by the time you factor in the old, slow laptop hardware.

I think a "custom" win7-32 on a tower of some sort might be reliable. My 770 worked fine with MCrew last time I checked.
