I'm new to mac, but so far my music life is much easier with mac laptop than windows..

today before rehearsal for the performance I connceted SL1642 to macbook pro open UC and the controls were blacked out with a messege "to use these features upgrade you firmware". I clicked upgrade. (no internet connection) The progress bar was stuck at the very end, and a messege "do not disconnect!" still on. I waited about 10 minutes, mixer still working, not locked up or anything, So i had to quit the UC. than restarted UC and than controls were able. than I disconnected firewire cable and reconnected it to see if it will happen again, and again the controls were blacked out with a messege "to use these features upgrade you firmware". I quit and reopned UC and the control were available again.
I don't want to upgrade firmware, because once I did and it was a disaster. with both mac and pc.

I am assuming this isnt the first time you've connected the SL to that particular computer.

Did you start up in the right order?

Which version of the driver and firmware are you on?

Was the mixer ever connected to another system with possibly a different version of UC on it?

I've not ever seen this before.

SL version 1.13 I think. I use SL with desktop windows pc in the studio and with a macbook pro in live situations.
(I'll tell more info later because the mixer is there and I'm about to go there in an hour to the sound, no wifi there, I'll post when i come back)

If I remember correctly there's a slight variation in the firmware to driver communication between Mac and PC in that version. The variation causes what you are seeing. The firmware in the board is the same but the driver doesn't see it that way. I think ver. 1.2 fixed it.
