I just got in my PCM D50, and immediately tried the digital-in to see what data points I could add to this confused picture.  I fed it with a 24/96 signal from a Core Sound Mic2496 optical out.  The D50 read 48/24 but the second hand was racing, and sure enough on playback I heard my test speech played back at 1/2 speed (and down an octave, of course).  I have not yet tried editing the wave header, but my guess is that I will have an okay 24/96 recording.  This is a kludgy work-around for something that should function correctly out of the box.

Same problem with the MTII

http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,95661.0.html

Lets see if Sony can fix the problem faster than M-Audio. Hope Sony wins the race because people expect more from Sony (but M-audio seems to fix most of the old MT problems quite fast with regular firmware updates). I'm really surprised these companies don't check these things before releasing it to the public.

Mine will arrive next week Parker said :(

Just got the digital optical cable from the mail box....

Took a little fiddling around with the settings on my computer but I was able to
input to the D50 from my computer at 96/24
and I output back to the computer at 96/24 and recorded to the hard drive with
the pre-recorded files and the built in Mikes...

So I guess its working fine for that configuration...

Just for the heck of it, I tried my 8GB pro duo card in the D50.  In the D1, the 8GB card only showed about 1 hr 45 minutes of record time at 24/96 (while a 4GB card shows 1 hour 57 minutes), but the D50 shows almost 4 hours, even though this is not an "HG" version of the memory stick pro duo.  I ran it twice, first time it shut down after an hour and half when I pushed the "display" button, the second time I just let it run and got four files, 3 of them 2.1 GB and the last 1.575 GB, I am transferring to my computer now but this looks like good news for the HG version, even if the non-HG version runs a bit flaky it CAN do four hours with seamless splits.

Any recordings with this yet?  I'm curious to hear how it sounds
compared to the Korg and Edirol via analog in.

Right on, right on, right on!  I hope to have some of my stuff from the Xmas Jam up this weekend.  The battery life was great during the Jam.  I changed before Hornsby with 50% still showing just because I didn't know how long the standard alkaline would last but probably could have easily done 8 hours at 16/44.1. 

Enjoy the dTb in FLA!
