I'm new with the 8000fw, so forgive me if this is a stupid question – but I've tried everything I can think of and I'm not having any luck.
I am currently running a Mac with OsX 10.5.8 and 4gb of memory. I'm using Logic 9. I use a Presonus FP10 and a Presonus Central Station for inputs and monitoring. The FP10 has a second firewire port so one can daisy chain devices. Everything works with no problems. What I would *like* to do is connect the firewire from the FP10 to the 8000fw, but when I try this the 8000fw doesn't show up. If I connect straight to the 8000fw, the 8000fw shows up. If I try to go from the 8000fw to the FP10 (the reverse of what I outlined above), no luck. I've tried multiple cables to make sure that it isn't a cable problem and it doesn't seem to change anything.
Any thoughts? Do Presonus products and Eventide not play well together? Thanks!

Not a stupid question, but not necessarily one that I can answer, as it involves a number of non-Eventide products beyond my knowledge. Presonus's Web Site is broken, so I can't get any information on their product.
You should check that all FireWire ports on both units are functional – these can be occasionally be damaged by static.
Beyond this, there is no reason I can see why the H8000 should not daisy-chain. I can't speak for Presonus – what do they say ?

Thanks for responding.
Their product is here: http://www.presonus.com/products/Detail.aspx?ProductId=3
The Presonus people have not gotten back to me yet, but this isn't particularly unusual (unfortunately). According to their documentation – as far as I can tell – it's the same firewire set-up as the Harmonizer regarding chaining devices.
I will double check both ports on both units to make sure they are both functional when I hit this problem hard again tonight. I may end up just replacing the Presonus unit with something like a Apogee Rosetta 800 with a firewire option card or an RME Fireface 800. Do you have any users successfully using the RME device and the 8000 chained? Thanks!

*bangs head on desk*
It's a bad firewire port on the Presonus device. Lesson learned. Thanks for your help.
