Yes PT 5.3.1 was to enable HD hardware on OS9... Conversely, PT 6.4.1 let you use 'Mix' era hardware with OS X. I've never tried the 5.3.1/HD setup but I AM curious if all the OS9 plugins would work. I think the vast majority of people that purchased an HD interface went directly to the new fangled OS X! ;D

I did use HD hardware with OS9 and PT 5.3.1. All plugins I had in 5.1.3 with MIX hardware worked as long as you kept bit/khz at the most 24bit/48khz.

I'm curious, I'm pretty sure they refreshed the 192's about midway through it's lifecycle, we currently have 3 in my 'normal' OS X studio. I know for a fact that one of them is an older one and one is a newer one. I'll try and take pictures with the lids off at some point.

Do both versions work in OS 9?

exactly correct
+ exactly the point of the post!
to highlight the fact that it was made compatible with os9 for those people who chose to stay on os9
