V2 Expansion Board Network config
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:32:45 AM »
Last year I had 80 Universes including one Universe for my AC controllers which was Universe 80. This year I increased to 103 so my 103'rd Universe will be my AC controller. On one of my V2 controllers I had it set up as Universe 65 thru 80. This year I am using an expansion board on that controller so I set the board to Universe count 32. The only way I can get the Network config to work is by making port 32 not 16 Universe 103? Is that how it should be. I was thinking port 16 on the main controller should be Universe 103 but it wont allow me to set it up that way.

Is this correct?

After stepping away for a bit and thinking about it ..it does make sense that its the last port as the board is now treated as 32 ports not 16. But a little confirmation would be nice ....lol


Thanks

The controller needs to have all universes received setup in the E131/Artnet page. When that is done each string port can use any universe/start channel that is being received. The ports are not tied to any particular universe. In fact, they could all be set to use the same universe.
