I did not scour the board in depth, so hopefully this isn't a repeat.  Last year I had a single smart receiver via my F16V4 and it worked great.  I added a 2nd smart receiver this year and may have caused myself some issues.  Coming out of the 1st receiver port (two receivers daisy chained), I used channels A and B.

For the 2nd port, I also have a single receiver and am again using channel A.  Should I be using Channel C or does it matter?  Attached is my controller set-up.  Hopefully this is enough detail.

Thanks in advance.


Normally you start each port with A

Ports 17 to 20 would be A,B,C,D etc

What you have looks fine, you just need to terminal the last smart receiver in each chain.


If you are not daisy chaining, you can use them in Normal mode, but in reality, you can designate it as any Letter. You just have to set the mode switches to match the letter you are using.

If to err is human, I am more human than most people.


Thanks so much for the responses.  Yeah, last year my singing-bulbs were working fine.  I added the additional chain this year (only 4-channels, 21a-23a), and now my Singing bulbs are out of whack.  I am sure it is operator error, but it just isn't obvious yet.  I believe I did set all my terminators, but will check first thing in the morning.

Attached is a picture of my controller channelization if that helps.  Thanks again.


OK - Going to answer my own question again.  I did a test of the lights on that receiver after the show was over, and on the receiver directly chained to it.  All indications are pointing that I hooked up my bulbs to the wrong receiver (DOH!).  I will know for sure in the morning when I can verify, but am fairly sure that is the issue.

Sorry for the bother.

(P.S. I feel like such an idiot sometimes)
