I'm in the middle of a month long theatre show and I'm having some issues with the desk I bought earlier this month. It's a full size X32 with an S16, connected using a shielded 50m Cat5e Ethercon and running the latest firmware.
The desk is losing sync with the stage box seemingly randomly (causing a loud pop!) - it still recognises that it's an s16, but the AES box on the desk is red. It won't resync until I swap to the other AES port, and sometimes has to be reconnected multiple times to get it working. After that it works for a couple of hours and then goes off again. I've tried swapping sync master to no avail.
Has anyone had a similar issue?

All kidding aside, I did have a similar issue with the ultranet feeds to our church's P16M. Using shielded cat5e, we were getting a buzz. Using unshielded cable, the buzz disappeared. We know that there are issues with the electrical power on the stage (which was built in the 70's), but haven't had time to sort it all out (and crawl space underneath is not very fun to work in).
