I've dedicated about 10 solid hour over the last two days and each time I attempt to measure various listening positions, I get the message that "The soundcard didn't provide any input data..."

Here is my set up
UMIK-1 going into MB pro
From MacBook pro I have HDMI going to an assigned HDMI input on my Rotel RAP1580 (only using audio)
I downloaded the xxx-xxxx_90deg.txt for the mic
I followed the instructions on the preferences page, BUT, when I select the MIC/Meter tab, I can go no further.

I can't get to where i can run tests in the MIC/Meter mode.

Any advice would be appreciated.

But wait! There's more! I could not see any, but two speakers in my 7.1 setup. I could not see or find the HDMI in the audio in pull down. Thanks.

Finally, would using a miniDSP 2x4 HD help or be any easier or might it be newbie user error?
