I'm using the eclipse in AES with a Xlogic Alphalink SX converter.
the whole system is clocked on a BigBen via WC
But when i want to route a signal to the eclipse i have "poor signal' as status in Dig In Setup.
If no signal is routed Status is Ok Pro, it only switches when sound reaches the eclipse via AES.
I'm little bit noob to AES…i'm getting headhaches with this! Somebody can help me ?

Poor signal probably means what it says. Try a different cable.
You could also try connecting the Eclipse AES input to its AES output (while still synched to word clock) and see if this says the same – if it does, you may have a hardware problem.
I assume that you have set up the Eclipse to sync to Wordclock (SETUP/Digin/CLOCK) and have set the unit to receive AES in (SETUP/Digin/DIGIN).

thanks for your reply
i'm using a
digisnake db25 cable 110ohm compliant so i can't test to connect AES in
to out. But if i change the routing matrix table in my alphalink to input AES > output AES is'nt the same thing that you suggest ? (it would be better than buy a new cable)
is synced to worldclock and i'm on XLR in Digin Setup.
tried to change routing matrix on Xlogic

Don't know your alphalink….
Try and borrow another cable (a short mike cable would be fine) to try these tests. Otherwise, it's hard to know what to do.

When you say "short mike cable" does it means a simple microphone cable (XLR standard not AES) ?
I'm sorry lil'bit noob in english (and with AES lol)

A regular XLR mike cable would be fine for a test.
The electrical characteristics of the cable mainly become important when the cable is long, and at higher sample frequencies.

Ok! Nice to know, i'll keep you updated about my tests!
Thanks for your help

I've connected AES IN to OUT (aes loop) It says "Ok Pro"! So does it means that my Eclipse is OK 🙂 ?

Sounds like you are good – the problem would appear to lie elsewhere.
My guess is that your Digi cable is incompatible with your AlphaLink, but I don't really know much about either of these – you should maybe talk to SSL.
