Yes, I did get it to work a while back.  I have not had a chance to 
check if these instructions work with the newest DIGI drivers (6.4 I 
think) yet, but, I can check tonight.  Hope this helps,

Using the Mbox with PD

I think that this is complete.  If not let me know and I'll update it
mmturner at mindspring.com

Three things to load/setup first:
1) Jack
	setup according to their very good documentation

2) PD compiled with Jack
	Direct link is:

	Found on the page:

	You will need to set this up a bit.
		- move the pd-0.37-0-Jack folder to where ever you plan to keep it
		- Inside the pd-0.37-0-Jack directory, run the "PD (launcher)"
			(it may open wish for a second and then wish may close)
		- Go to the Preferences for PD (Launcher) and set the command line
		mine is:
		/Applications/MusicApps/pd-0.37-0-Jack/bin/./pd -jack
		 	the "./" before pd -jack was needed on my system as this bin 
			directory is not in my Path
		- Save the Command line, then close the PD (launcher)
3) Plug in your Mbox
	- run the DigiDesign CoreAudioSetup
	- click the supported Applications button
	- click Add New Application button
	- select JackPilot
	- Jack Pilot should be added to the list
	- click Done and then Done

Now the running procedure (do this in the order given):
1) plug in your Mbox
2) launch JackPilot
3) in JackPilot, set the Preferences (in the JackPilot Menu)
	set the Interface drop-down menu to Digidesign HW (MBox)
	click save
4) in JackPilot, click Start Jack
5) launch the PD (launcher) app
	wish should open and it should use the Mbox as your I/O

When you shut down, close Wish and PD Launcher before trying to shut 
down JackPilot

Hope this is helpful, please let me know if it works or if I should 
change some things in the instructions.
