    Best way to hook the X48 to my DM4800 ??
    I` d like to rec on all the 48 track using the console.
    Shoud I get extra TDIF-1 cards ?
    What's the name of the cards if so ?

    If the console is hooked to the x48, can I still use the sends and return via the Fw card ? to use as inserts when mixing.

    Cheers
    Rod

    The TDIF cards you are looking for are the IF-TD/DM. Don't know if they are still available from Tascam or not.
    The answer to your question as to whether or not you can use the Firewire Card along with the TDIF cards is, yes. I use mine simultaneously with three ADAT cards and the on board ADAT to System Link Cubase and Nuendo. You will, however, be limited by, obviously, your available channels.
    By the way, page 52 of the owners manual explains all the available cards for the DM4800. If you don't have the physical manual, a PDF version is available from the Tascam site, along with all other documentation pertinent to the DM4800.
