Topic: UFX+ Thunderbolt Not showing input status Sync etc

I switched from a working USB connection to Thunderbolt for my Windows 10 machine. Now, it works fine, except that the Input Status display shows only "No Lock" for all settings.

At the same time, I changed from an external input via AES, to playing from a Windows software player (Squeezelite-X) to the AES channel (second row Total Mix) and using Loopback to pass the signal to Acourate convolver, and out to Analog 1-4.

I do not know whether "No Lock" is expected when using an internal signal and loopback? Or, is there a problem with my Thunderbolt setup?
