Push 2 User Mode 8x8 pad LED feedback

Mac Pro, OS X 10.10.5, Live Suite 9.6.1, Push 2

Having trouble getting feedback 8x8 pad LEDs working in User Mode.

I have followed the guides for setting up User Mode:
- Added as a second control surface entry with Push 2 User port (the first being Push 2 Live port).
- Input: Push2 User port - Track=On, Sync= Off, Remote=On
- Output: Push2 User port - Track=Off, Sync= Off, Remote=On
But am not getting realtime feedback from the pad LEDs when I send them MIDI as tutorials have shown. They only update when I switch back to the Live Mode and then back to User Mode, but stay static.
i.e. whatever was being sent to the User port at the moment I switched to User Mode will light, but things that play after that are seemingly ignored.
Strangely, if I enable Push2 User port output Track=On, and switch to Live mode, the LEDs do light correctly but are overlaid on top of the usual Live mode LEDs.

    What's your I/O routing look like?

    Try setting MIDI FROM to (Ableton Push (User Mode)

    and MIDI TO to (Ableton Push (User Mode).

    Make sure monitoring is set to IN.

    This way you'll get feedback when you press a pad, or what I like to do, is create a blank midi clip on that empty track that loops with the pad I want colored, lit up a certain color to group certain sounds, etc.

    You might want to start your own thread since this is about Push 2.
    I don't have an APC so I haven't tested it/can't vouch for it, but this script looks pretty interesting and people say pretty good things.

    Hey there,

    I'm trying to get my APC40mk2 to light up the pads with custom mappings, but no luck... Followed the above, but any advice from anyone?
