    Subject: Trouble Recording a Digital Audio Signal from the Cable Box

    Problem: I am unable to record a Digital Audio Stream from the Scientific Atlanta, Explorer 2100 cable box supplied from Knology, my cable company, to the Alesis ML9600 Masterlink, which I recently purchased

    I am able to record, from the Scientific Atlanta to the Alesis Hard Drive using Analog Input, but when I try to record using the Digital Input, all I get a loud popping sound. For Digital Audio, I am using a Monster Digital Interlink cable.

    On the Alesis, with Digital Input selected and in the Standby ready mode, the digital light does come on and the Sample Rate indicates 48K, with the Record Light is flashing. As soon as I press Play to start recording to the Hard Drive, all I get is a loud popping sound.

    I first called Knology, my cable company to confirm that the Digital Audio Output was working and they said that it was.

    The Alesis manual states that the Digital audio data is expected in IEC958 type 1 format (professional)

    I then called Alesis and was told that it appears that the Clock Speed from the Cable box is not compatible with the Alesis ML 9600.

    Question: Can you recommend a device that I can use to correct the problem or suggest a possible solution.

    Thank You,

    Richard Farrah
