Unit ID changed by it self

Recommended Posts

The other night the lights inside the house blinked. Causing the computer running LOR to reboot. Since that night it appears that controller 02 and 03 have swapped IDs. The original daisie chain order was 01-03-02. It now appears to be 01-02-03. Can this happen? Am I crazy, high or both?

No.... Both.

It will always come up in sequential order regardless of how it's connected.

If you really want to know if your controllers swapped ID's, there is a simple test, load the Hardware Utility and then run the sequential aspect for each controller and see which lights come on.

You'll probably find they are still in the same order you placed them, like William said, the HW will *always* show the controllers in sequential order.

My set up this year was controller 2,3,5,4 and 1, when I load the HWU to verify a string is or is not working, it comes up as controller 1,2,3,4,5 every time, but when I run the sequential check, the correct controller comes up with the correct lights on that controller ID.
