Two volume control questions for 8260A

Hi there,

I recently got my 8260As for home use, and I am extremely happy with them. I'm still wiping the drool from the floor every time I listen to them :)

I have a couple of questions for those who have used these speakers for longer.

- I have programmed a Contour ShuttleXpress to match the settings in the GLM Autolink. The buttons on the ShuttleXpress do succesfully raise and lower the volume, but not the rotary wheel. I have made sure the wheel is programmed correctly several times (same settings as the buttons), but it just does not work. Wondering if I'm missing something? I have tried a "frequency" of "once only" and "60 times per second", but neither does the trick.

Maybe I should switch to the Griffin Powermate? That works without programming it, right?

- The second question concerns the attenuation levers on the back of the monitors. I am feeding the monitors a digital signal. I have the GLM volume control at -55 db. I notice no difference in volume when I switch both the levers and the rotary level control in the back to achieve 42db of attenuation. I still have the GLM volume control at -55 db, and no difference in volume. Am I missing something?

Thank you for your help,

Hi,

Controls on the back side of the speaker work only when the GLM is not being connected and "Stored/Manual Control" dip has been set to "Manual Control" position. Otherwise GLM volume control always overrules the volume control.
