macOS: DVS Clock Sync Locked / Unlocked

Due to a change in the OS X networking stack since OS X 10.13, we have found that our multicast clock traffic can be interfered with on some Mac OS systems, resulting in DVS periodically losing sync with the leader clock. We are working on a resolution for this in the next DVS release. We have not observed any impact on the audio.

A workaround for this issue is to use an adapter such as USB or Thunderbolt to Ethernet instead of the built-in network port. Running DVS at a lower sample rate such as 48KHz with fewer channels has also been found to resolve the issue.
