I just got a Studio 192 and when I hooked it up to my computer Pro Tools saw it and worked just fine playing back through DAW return #1. UC Surface has 3 more stereo DAW returns. I would love to be able to send a click signal back through a different DAW return, like 3, 5, or 7. How do I set this up? The 3, 5, & 7 DAW returns don't show up as available outputs in Pro Tools and I have no idea how to add them.

Thanks
Stuart

Okay, I figured it out. As I suspected this is a Pro Tools I/O issue not a UC Surface issue. The problem is just miss-matched path names in Pro Tools I/O Set up window. I went to I/O set up in Pro Tools and under the Bus tab in the Mapping To Output column were three outputs with odd names that ended with "path - n/a". If you right click on those names you get a list of actual functioning I/O. Just choose one of those (in this case "Line Out 3-4, Line Out 5-6") and your DAW returns will work properly. I guess this is fundamental Pro Tools stuff, but with my last set up I never had to mess with the I/O. So there you go, I answered my own question.
