Dual Port USB485B Question

I see 2 ports on there.

Can you use both ports seperately to go to 2 units with having to daisy chain? Or is the second port locked for wireless/accessory use.

I would think you could use both since you can connect the wireless unit into the standard transmitter port.

Curious,

I'm pretty sure you can. In fact, I think one of the LOR Support pages shows a 485B with two connections. (I could just be remembering things wrong, though.)

Both ports on the 485B adapter are the same.

You can for instance put the computer with the adapter in the middle and run opposite directions to your controller(s).

Yes you can use both. I have an indoor loop of boards on one of them, and a single board in a Orbit case connected to the other. I probably never would have even tried that, but when Dan Baldwin was helping troubleshoot a defective board at the Philly mini+, I saw him separate the suspect board by plugging it into the second port. Later when we got a backup board in place, he plugged it into the second port and we ran the show. It's been connected that way ever since...
