The MADI cards work autonomous, they are only controlled by a few 
parameters. If the parameters are the same, the behaviour is the same. 
Thus the settings must differ, and we have to find out where.

I don't believe electromagnetic interference to be a reasonable cause 
for this. What exactly is your setup - 1x 703 and 1x 713? And both lose 

I just had a glance over the Euphonix' user manual and had to learn that 
they cannot loop through MADI and you have to use the wordclock. So, 
please, be a bit more specific about the setup - and maybe via private 
mail, because that's of no relevance to alsa development..

Machines can do the work, so people have time to think.
