I love you forever :)
will try it shortly.
I've hit another booboo! when I remove the ibus wire from the sound linx adaptor, something happens to the sound. I think the adaptor is usng the 12v supply from the ibus to do something. I'll try to provide 12v from the other wire and hope that this way, I can bypass the adatpor's ibus intrusion, but still use it's leveling capability.
