xLights configuration for Smart receivers

If you have a model that uses several ports (let's use 8 ) and you are going to 2 smart receivers daisy chained (Say ports 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 1B, 2B, 3B, and 4B) How is that configured in xLights so that it will upload correctly?
I would think that it would be 8 strings and Port will be 1 and Smart Receiver should be *A*->b->c ? And what would the order of connections be? 1A, 1B, 1C, 2a...etc
Or 1A, 2A, 1B, 2b, etc?

And will it show up correctly in the Visualizer?

@Poporacer Did you ever find the answer to your question? I am STUCK in xLights trying to get it to output configuration for the EXACT scenario that you've described. I can set it up in FPP correctly, but getting it setup and outputted to FPP from xLights is proving impossible. xLights wants to land everything on 1A, or 1B, with no way to select or configure 2A, 3A, 4A... etc.

LOL, that was 2 years ago, xLights vVisualizer now has several Cascade options like @K-State Fan mentioned, specifically Cascade remotes,
