If you have firewire on your motherboard you shouldn't need an additional card, however audio interfaces can be very picky about what firewire chipset you have. Should you encounter problems with your new MR818, your best bet is getting a firewire card with a TI chipset, they are usually recommended for audio work.
Software: Steinberg Cubase Pro 8 64-bit.
Hardware: Intel i5 6600, 16Gb DDR3, Win7 64-bit
Mackie Onyx 1620i - Steinberg Midex 8 - Steinberg CC121.

My humble contributions to what could be considered music.

I know of the problem with the chipset , thats why i figured i ask just in case someone has used it via there motherboard and didn't have to buy a separate fw card ,

any recommendations on which card to get?


thanks

The p7p55d has got a Via firewire chipset, which should do the trick nicely...

on my desktop i insalled a firewire card with VIA chipset (before i had the MR816) for camcorder connection,when
i bought the MR816 i connected it to the FW card and there was nothing i could do to work with it. then i bought a FW card with TI chipset and it worked right away.

on my laptop sony vaio f13 i have onboard fw card with Ricoh chipset which is not recomended to work with MR816 by steinberg, and i had lot of problems indeed, but i manged to let the MR to work with it after many tweaking.

well conclusion. its hard to tell untill u have it hoked up to ur computer.
good luck with it. ;)
