Inputs

Check out these pictures. I don't have the optical input expansion, why are my input selections only letting me use optical, can't move the selector to analog?

Does it also happen with the monitor and mouse disconnected?

Is your vga expansion original or one of these selfmade ones?

Just tried it with them disconnected, still the same. I think it is a genuine VGA addapter.
It's weird as it did work. First it wasn't working, not giving me the options for analog. I thought it might be that the analog option would only work if an input was plugged in, connected up my SP808 to the input, and it was working, so i thought that it was now cool. But now it is not working again even with an input source plugged in. Tried a bit of contact cleaner in the Jack sockets, no joy!

Super weird. Just thought I would try a new project and now it is working fine!! Only option on the Global input screen is Analog, WTF is going on., Cool it works but not cool I don't know what is causing it to stop working.

Weird indeed.

Perhaps bad RAM or a dying harddrive is causing these issues..?

The fact that it´s working in a new project could mean your old project got corrupted somehow...that´s why I thought about a bad harddrive...

Yeah I had similar thoughts. Have been thinking of swapping out the HDD for a new one as I don't know its history. I would quite like to strip the hole machine, give it a good clean out, replace the dodgy components etc. The machine feels a bit used and abused, would be good to give it a good service to ensure its longevity.
