Logic- can't see multiple FireWire interfaces in OS X

I'd love to hear from a Logic user who has first-hand knowledge that Logic 7 can see multiple FireWire interfaces when running in Mac OS 10.4. (For example, multiple MOTU 896HDs.)

Previous OS X versions of Logic could not do this. And even Logic 7 couldn't do this when running on 10.3. (If you're amazed, it was true!) It's been years now with no fix.

I was told by Apple reps (at two consecutive MacWorld Expos) that this flaw would be fixed when Tiger 10.4 was released. But recently, a user reported to me that it is still broken, and I see no mention of this in any of the info for the many Logic/OS updates. I'm seeking confirmation before I drop $$$ on Logic yet again. Has anyone seen this work first-hand?

(Logic v7.1.1 was released 10_04_05)

Are you talking about daisy-chaining the 896's together? If you are, then I might be having a similar problem. I am trying to daisy-chain an 828 Mk II & Traveler together to go to my iMac and am having all kinds of trouble. Please anybody help.

This is related to daisy-chaining MOTU FireWire interfaces, but the problem mentioned above is with Logic. If you're not using Logic, check out this thread, all about daisy-chaining MOTU FireWire interfaces, and how to clock them:
