Hello guys,
Any ideas why my Pinnacle 11 Ultimate (ok... I know its old!) is choosy about the firewire audio it captures for a current project?

Stereo audio (2channel ex camera mic) comes in via firewire all OK.

Two separate channels (say via two lapel mics) from the same camera and cable does not. The rig just accepts channel 1 audio and 'spreads it' over the the two tracks on the timeline and ignores channel 2 from the camera altogether! It leaves mute 'holes' where this audio shoul be.

Its got me beat - even tried different players and bought new firewire cables.

Are there different pin configurations I may have missed or something?

There is definitely two different audio signals recorded on the tape.
