I can see a lot of info is being thrown at you, but what is being talked about with Network Preferences is this. I'll bow out of this conversation now, your in capable hands ;) just wanted to show you a picture of Network Preferences.

1- You have nothing input from unit 8 circuit /channel 8

Are you manually building these controllers in or are you opening SE and right click on a unit and "insert device" "above/ below"? That's the correct way

So if you have 10 that's why you only see 8

That was a click glance

You have to finish building unit 8-10 to find 10 units.

But you have not network pref or anything built into unit 8 circuit 8 -unit 10. You can put all the words you want for humans but the computer cannot comm with it.

The correct way to add device

Open SE

Open a SEQ or MAster Config

Right Click on a unit

Select Insert Device above or below

Select your ctb device

set the LOR Reg network

and unit ID

Then just fill out the channel button

have not inserted device above or below which do I do

If I was you id start all over. Ive been there with a lot more channels.

However

You can try to start from 8

You should create a master config first

Open SE

Edit

Export channel config

Save it where you can find it

Close what you got

Now start by opening a new sequence and select that config from the folder instead of using the default 8

Now

Delete unit 8 -10

Now

right click on unit 7 and follow the steps above a couple posts

Also a little advice

Group your channels per controller or system.

Easier to scroll through and fix stuff later. There is a box to check when setting up conrollers as above.

when u say right click on a unit do u mean a channel

Yes, a channel. Or unit if you group its much easier.Group while setting up, you can always group now.

Example

Right click on Unit 1 channel 1 and select add as group. Then you will select the channels ie 1-16 for unit 1 and ok. Now you have everything on that unit packed into 1 tab until you click the + button

If you haven't done so already you can right click on unit 1.1 Hand rails. "Convert to group" you can name the group "hand rails" since that is what the 16 are. This will consolidate all 16 channels under that 1 button. 

Makes life much easier.

I was trying to be fast with my replies so difficult to explain 100%.

If you have SE open with your sequence the edit tab next to file. Almost all the way down you should see Export/ import channel config

just select any song and then use the config you just saved.

That was just so you don't accidentally delete your sequence.

Once you are done rebuilding your new units then save that one as your new master config.

do I delete 8-10 on all my sequences

 

No do not mess with your old sequences.

You will copy paste from your old to new sequences as needed. Some may say something different but that works for me. I'm trying to keep it easy for you at this time.

When you open the "new sequence" with your config you saved it will not have a sequence on it. Just empty sheet with unit/ channel buttons that were on the sequence you used to export it.
