Hello!
I'm posting to see if anyone has any advice for me.
I semi-recently purchased a replacement bus card for my 8128 from www.81series.com.
The stock computer in my desk works perfectly - all busses and routing are functional. However, the new replacement card is stuck in 32 track/40 channel frame size and doesn't respond to setting the frame size (the stock computer does, and allows 32, 40, and 48 tracks no problem). My desk is 56 channel, 48 bus.
I've tried seeking help from 81series (a man named Louis) but have subsequently been ignored for the past 10 months, blocked on social media, and as I live across the country from them I'm limited in my ability to rectify.
Primarily I'd love for this to work, and all of my communications have been pleading for help or troubleshooting. Short of this, I'd love for them to stand by their product as I currently have a $1,200 paper weight.
Does anyone have thoughts or suggestions on how I may proceed? I found a 3rd party that I'm assuming are the original creators of the card (http://www..larione10.it/matrix/index.htm) but also have had no luck contacting them. I have some friends in New York that are able to swing by their studio as well as the 81series workshop if need be.
thanks for any input.

Geoff Tanner would be the person around here to talk to, but he has not
been around here since the Death of Usenet. Might be worth looking up,
however.

Okay, I have not touched one of those consoles in many years, but first of
all what does the service manual say and secondly why did you replace the
card in the first place? Did you buy it just to have a spare?

Pull the working card and the non-working card and look for differences.
Is there a jumper on one and not the other, a trace-jumper cut, an extra
diode or resistor? I wouldn't expect proms on a bus card, but are there
proms and if so do they have stickers on them with version numbers?

This group is mostly dead today.... I don't know where active support for
that console exists. There's a Facebook group for users of the older Neve
consoles but I think this is likely too new to ask there.
