Orange light and no sounds from 8250 and 7270

Orange light and no sounds from 8250 and 7270

I recently had to wipe my computer and start from scratch. During this process I found it extremely hard to get the GLM software for my set up (8250s and a 7270). Trying to get GLM v1 off of the Genelec site was amusing. I kept getting redirected to the GLM2.0 which stated it wont work with my system. Great, thanks! Super helpful.

Luckily I was able to dig through some old boxes and I found the physical GLM CD. 

HERE IS MY ISSUE: I have correctly set up the GLM software and calibrated the speakers using the wizard. However, now as soon as i select my set up from the options in the software, my monitors wont produce sound. The lights stay orange and don't turn to green. However, during the set up, The speakers all played their test tones. 

If I use analog cables, the monitors work fine, but this forces me to bypass my 7270. 

Any idea why my monitors lights won't change off orange to green? Is it because the GLM is from the CD and pretty dated? Is it something Genelec did? Is my sub now a giant brick? Can I even get the most recent version of GLM v1?

The monitors and sub were working perfectly before i had to wipe my harddrive and start from scratch and again, they all played test tones during calibration and the monitors work with analog cables.

Any help is super appreciated.

GLM v1.5 and GLM.SE v1.3.1 are now available here, sorry for the trouble!


Have you managed to sort out the issues already or is the system still behaving strange?
