There is a working example for the online access to midas.
The example is $ROMESYS/examples/midas.
There is a README file in the directory.
The example works with an example experiment in MIDAS package so you can try.
If you look at ADC2 tab, the histograms should be updated when DAQ is running.
The "Trigger" events are polled in the MIDAS frontend, and "Scaler" data are taken periodically.
So I guess the "Scaler" corresponds to your INPT and "Trigger" corresponds to your other event types.
You may compare the examples and your analyzer/frontend for finding the cause of your problem.
> Hello all,

> That is, when I run the analyzer that accesses the INPT bank (standard for PSI

> I also tried printing the data in the various tasks and indeed in online mode
