Hi Paul,

I've held of from replying in the hope that someone with more knowledge
would reply.  Having seen no other responses I'll try to be some help.

I'm assuming that the 249c is MIDI/USB only (i.e. no Audio).  If not,
please ignore the rest of this.

I have an m-audio Oxygen 8.  Given M-Audio now owns Evolution I'm hoping
that there are some similarities :-)  The thing I notice missing from
your comments is any mention of hotplug setup.  M-Audio USB-MIDI
interfaces (i.e. the M-Audio keyboards and the Midisport interfaces)
require firmware to be downloaded to the hardware when plugged in.  Does
that sound relevant?
