Allright.. I may be able to help about this. I was having this problem,
and it's unrelated to the Afterburner or Nemesis (since I don't have
either.. I'm a lurking musician wanting everyone else to get the bugs
out before I dive in). I have the ADAT interface, and was getting the
same sort of things you mention, including switching outputs randomly,
etc. It turned out I had a corrupted mixermap. I reinstalled it and it
runs perfectly now. Try it..

I also see this occasionally via the ADAT interface.. 44.1k showing,
while connected device is actually clocking at 48k. I think the problem
is the order you power up.. it seems if I power up the master clock
device (digital mixer in my case, DAT in yours) prior to booting up the
Falcon, it works.. I haven't tried this enough to say it IS solving the
problem for sure, but it seems to work for me so far.

I don't know about this.. I'm successfully running NVDI 3.x with CAF and
