Stuck- 4 port smart receiver not recognized w F16v4+16 expansion

F16v4 (board 1.01, firmware build 12?) with 16 port expansion attached via ribbon.  system doesn't light the mini leds on the logic board of extra 4 port.

tl;dr- can't get 4 leds to stay on on 4 port smart expander.

I can configure the main board as 16+16 and basic tests work, but the 4 port smart expander isn't being recognized (4 leds lit on smart board.) i set the 4 port to A, and toggled the 4 terminator switches off to on and have tried to daisy chain 2 (set to A,B w termination) to what is in the manual, but no luck. I have even tried to reproduce this with a second main 1.01 board, 16pt expander, and second 4port smart receiver no luck.  

I have run the test mode successfully w pixels attached on the 4 port and swapped not only between the red receiver ports, but I have swapped rj45 cables.

I have tried most of the 16+16 drop down configurations offered, but have not tried matching exactly (2) 4 port receivers connected to both the 2 receiver on the main board rj45's at the same time.   Does the board function with a 16 port expansion board plus a single 4 port smart receiver or does it want two like the manual?

Yes I've toggled the terminator switches and set the roller switch from 0 (zero) to A.  

Any help appreciated.
