How are you synchronizing the word clocks on your two cards? I had
similar problems with my two Delta 1010s until I discovered that
the word clock input `locked' indicator in envy24control was working
the wrong way around. It's since been fixed, but I know there was
still an issue with the 1010LT (also fixed AFAIK). If you are
using S/PDIF instead of word clock input to sync the cards the only
indication that they are synchronized is that jackd runs properly.
If you have a bad S/PDIF connection you'll get a slew of xruns
scrolling off the screen (or the watchdog timer will kill jackd if
using -R).
