FPP E131 Config - Multiple Controllers same channels
« on: September 08, 2017, 01:35:00 PM »
Question regarding the e131 config within FPP and multiple controllers having some of the same channels.

I've got my FPP going to a network switch which has both a Etherdongle (channels 1-16384 first 4 universes of pixelnet) and a F16v2 (mostly channels above 16384).  My etherdongle goes into a falcon hub which feeds my house with those channels.  F16v2 does most of the above 16384 minus I want to run a couple props that are in the second pixelnet universe (4097 - 8192).

On the FPP e131 screen can I just leave the channels 4097-8192 on multicast and both the etherdongle and the f16v2 will respond and do the work to the assigned channels on each within that range?

To answer my own question after some testing yes both controllers can have the channel range I just have to make sure that channel range is set for multicast vs just unicast to the controller.
