After a few hours and back reviews of the manual (which did not help in the least) I have finally figured out my problem.
In mixing and in tracking I have come to look on the "record,playback,off" button as a mute button as well. It turns the damn track off. The light goes out and you get no sound. To me and I'm sure I am not alone here, That's a pretty damn good mute. There in lies my problem. Some of you may say geese this guy is lame but common! Well, I found out the hard way that this is not a mute button where automix is concerned. It's in the software not the hardware.
The mute for automix was on my monitor all along and it is the only one that will work. Clicking with a mouse does it, not muting by turning off the track. Imagine that. Every other damn thing is on the console; fader, panpot, EQ.
Oh well, at least I know it will be possible now that I know which mute switch to use. The only one for automix is on the screen. Not on the console
Hope this helps anyone out there who may have had the same problem.

I just need to add. You would think somewhere in the manual, Preferably in the automix section, they would let you know "muting a track can only be done with the on screen button not with the button on the console" Duh.
