we need to know what exactly you are doing to understand.
Please describe everything step_by_step.

I plug Spidif in and out cables from dsp4000 to my RME fireface 4000 soundcard.
i go to "Set up" on the 4000 then to "Audio"
– in source sp DIF
-out from sp DIF
i press audio once more on soft keys..
sample rate 0
s/p dif bad
scms no copy
and of course no sound in or out from the 4000 on respective spdif in out on my soundcard.. …
analog works fine..
cables are tested on other devices and work fine
in and out spdif from souncard from and to other devices also working

first advice is you use true S/Pdif cables, not generic RCA ones.
Try disconnecting the S/Pdif out cable from the 4000 to the RME.
Set input: S/Pdif.
Make sure you have:
-a valid signal being outputted by the RME
-enabled the RME S/Pdif out and routed a signal to it
all the best

HI thank you..
Im using propfesional coaxial cables ,
though, the in-out spidif sockets from my dsp 4000 look slightly diferent than any of the coaxial inputs sockets ive seen before..(maybe is juts an old socket design)
I tried all and it stil gives me the spidif Bad sign..
the input-output from rme (9-10 respectively) are workin with other devices…
Ive tried another soundcard (fireface 8000) with also spdif in outs and no luck also..
my question is
how normal or ikely for this device to have this option damaged ?

the socket looks a bit different, yes. But that's not a problem.
I would suggest you try the 4000 conncted to the H8000Fw via S/Pdif to check one more time.
No, it's not common for the S/Pdif to not work. Honestly it's the first time I have a report about it.
Please let me know!
