Hey guys - my trusty 2882 is currently not working and it's a weird problem.
I upgraded (my hdd died along with a bunch of work - yay!) I was happy on mountain lion but had to go to Sierra..
So my 2882 is powered by the fw bus but isn't showing in core audio. I've also tried hdd on this fw port and they don't mount but provided some power as I can hear the disc spinning.
So I've done every conceivable reset (smc ect) changed cables ect but the point of failure appears to be the physical port - looks like some of the puns may have bent (as it's partially working obviously by providing power)

So I guess the question is can I go via thunderbolt with the appropriate connectors? As far as I can see it will work.

Another case of please please release the 3D card! Smile
