Steinberg MR816x with cubase 5 Latency

Hi I use Steinberg MR816x with cubase 5.
When I start a new project I have zero latency when listen. After I record a few tracks then the latency is like a half second or more.
I use a Yamaha UX256 for my midi. I have a latency problem now on my midi instruments to. It records without latency though, both audio and midi. But listening have latency. Why?

Not shure if there is something in cubase I can optimise.
I only have one MR816x but I wanted two more. Now I dont know anymore.
Cant be a problem only recording a few channels while playing a few channels.

I made a mix using almost 50 audio channels and fx on every channel. No problem. But then I cant record something because of the latency issue while listening.

I cant use this interface as it is. I use Yamaha Steinberg FW Asio drivers in Cubase. I had other asio drivers installed before. I used a presonus interface. Do I have to Re-install windows and make a fresh install?

I rather dont try to flash my motherboard with a newer bios. I destroyed a few asus board in the past trying to update my bios.

I have a descent pc.
Asus P5K

1. Use the MR Console Software for near zero latency
2. or set the audio device MR to Direct Monitoring

1: MR console software. You mean the small mixer?
2: Direct monitoring Listen to this device, Control Panel\Hardware and Sound?

I Downloaded "TOOLS_for_MR_V172_Win64" and there was MR Editor. Nothing more.

Thanks for helping me. I really want to learn how to use a computer as a recording and mixing tool.

(I just found Direct monitoring in Cubase. Gonna see how it works now.)
Something happend to the internal routing. Monitor-out is now headphone two, headphone two is headphone one etc.
I have a huge headache and a small understanding. Still reading all manuals.....

No, direct monitoring is in audio setup somewhere in Cubase. Once you turn on direct monitoring your latency problems during recording will be a thing of the past.

1. MR Console is where you set INPUT levels IF you want to use the MR Console for near zero latency monitoring and NOT monitor THROUGH Cubase.

2. Again, 2nd option is to use DIRECT MONITORING in Cubase and not use the MR Console.

BOTH will give you the same thing pretty much.
