Any folks who have used the F48 with the receiver boards? Was thinking though that last night and it seems like zoning up the house with the receiver boards and locating the F48 in the garage would work well. I guess one potential downside is if the F48 goes down most of my show goes down....Any thoughts?

I used the 48 last year and it was awesome, had 10 receiver boards running and it was perfect, I bought 2 F48's for that exact reason though so if it went down, I had the second one all configured to swap out, yes its another $200 buts its still cheaper then putting a bunch of controllers all over vs $17 receiver boards

Lots of lines on here, but I think you can make it out. EBX is the receiver boards (should have used RB I guess). I have some places where I could probably collapse ports, but for ease of access and connectivity and possible expansion thought this would work.


Longest run on a port is 128 nodes....hoping to not have to do any power injection.


Thoughts?

So when I purchased quantity 6 of the channel and cover, I did not notice it said linear foot. Even though they only come in 6' lengths, the price is still per linear foot, which makes no sense to me at all. So since it was $5.41/linear foot of channel and $1.80/linear foot of cover, I spent over $52 to get one 6' length of each to get delivered to my door. Boy do I feel dumb! Time to return this over priced crap!!
