Gutbucket, and all........well my ganging function is a real  :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:
Through sheer coincidence i have been try two opposite things on my two 680's.  When I couldn't get the ganging feature to work at a show, the next time I set my deck to stereo and the ganging worked.......

Well of course it did, deck-1 only has V1.11 firmware, and deck-2 has V1.20.  It seems I kept trying to get the old firmware to do ganging one deck -1 which it wont.  And kept getting the ganging to work on deck-2 which of course is part of the firmware upgrade.  I don't know how I kept managing to try the same thing out on the same deck each time.  that solves the big mystery and it has nothing to do with limiters or anything else except operator error :zombie03:

Good hear you both figured out the issue and that no problem with the machine.

Gang on.

So, I was wondering if anyone else experienced this situation?  Just before recorded a matrix last Sunday, Channel 1 and 2 disappeared from my screen.  In the past, I would go to the card, hit information, and it seemd to reboot the channels.  This time, it did not.  So I changed the inputs to channels 3-6 xlr ports and got a signal thorughout the set.  When I tried opening the files, it said the files were corrupted and the spaced used read as "zero." 

Glad I got a warranty.  Any idea what happened here?

Has this happened with more than one SD card? It sounds like it could be a card issue, but that is just a supposition. I have never had any channels disappear from my screen, so that in itself sounds like a red flag, but still possibly a card reading issue?

What happens when you try to arm the channels? Nothing?

But you can arm and disarm the other channels without problems?

I can arm and disarm channels 3-6, but it did not record the other night after the channels disappeared.  The files say corrupted files.

Hmm.  Do channels 1,2 work if you put the recorder in stereo mode (selected with the button on top most people never use)?

Have you tried initializing the unit? [page 46 of the manual]
