AEM Wideband + Xcal2 + Live Link + Din9 = NO a/f logging? HELPPPP

Here's what I'm working with-

Live Link 6.1
Xcal 2
Din 9 cable (using proper pinout & trimmed connector 2 fit into xcal all the way)
New hp laptop running windows 7 64bit
AEM wideband

My problem-

All PIDs log perfect BUT no signal on 'analog 1' in logging software (or any other analog in software for that matter)

Things I've checked-

I am receiving proper voltage at the din plug from the wideband (fluctating around 2.5v-3v at idle on base tune w a multimeter)
I've tried hooking up the wideband to xcal before loading software, durring the pid list and after selecting pids still no signal to log
I have the correct formula plugged into livelink (tried other version of formula too)
Ground for signal / gauge are same and good grounding point
Trimmed din 9 male end to plug all way into xcal2

Soooo I really need 2 get this logging so I can send my datalogs to get my tune finished. I was thinking about running the signal wire from the wideband to the 'analog 2' pin on the xcal2 if by chance the analog 1 pin in on the xcal is no good. I was also wondering if the shielding wire off the din 9 (bare wire) needs to also be grounded? Is it possible to run the serial output from the gauge strait to my laptop and log a/f via livelink and serial input if I can't get analogs working? Any input is GREATLY appreciated guys... I have a 1100 mile trip to take in a week and theirs no way I'm gonna try it on my base tune.

I don't personally use the Xcal2 but FWIW I think with the din 9 connector, this may be your problem.

I've pretty much eliminated that as a problem since the correct pins on my din 9 cable are giving proper voltage at the pinout (0v-5v)... it has to be something I overlooked...

Figured it out!

In livelike you must enable 'rappid packets' in the drop down menu. In order to log analog inputs

Everything is logging perfect... hopefully this thread might help someone down the line
