I am trying to route counter outputs to the RTSI connector in DAQmx via VB.NET. My routing code is simple:
I do this before starting the task. I've also tried replacing Ctr0InternalOutput with PFI36; I get the same result. That is:
1. No error message. Presumably then the route is valid and is made.
2. I get 5VDC on all the RTSI pins. This is true for all the RTSI lines (0 through 6 and OSC) and happens the minute the computer is powered up.
I verified my cable is correct (I took a ribbon cable and wired it to BNC connectors according to the pinouts at http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/392DEFA8A72
What am I not understanding here?

The following code does nothing in my case, even after adding an RTSI cable in MAX and "connecting" the PCI6602 to it:
Instead, I used the second way of routing signals:
inal = "/Dev1/RTSI0"
This works like a charm. Go figure why the other method doesn't do squat; it isn't the first time I've had this type of problem.
