In the LOR Control tab of the Hardware Utility you can only control 16 channels at a time. The CCR has 150 (plus macros)

Click the "Console" button at the bottom of the LOR Control tab. You'll want Extended Circuit ID's and either LOR % or DMX settings.

Since you've verified you can talk to the units, I'd just stop there and move along to the sequence editor. The HWU is of limited use for large channel count items like CCR's.

very good advice,I ran into the same issue last year,and went to the se and all worked as it should(after I set them to normal mode)

Ok checking network 1 on com5 it identifies all 17 controlers 5 controlers and 12 CCR controlers, on com 6 it identifies all 17 controlers also and it shows a com3 that dosnt find any controlers??????? network 1 should identify 5 controlers and 6 CCR controlers. network 2 should ID 6 CCR controlers????

I've seen that before. turned out to be noise on the line. Make sure you have all good connection and good cables. I have short cables that I crated myself that test OK with an ethernet tester, but when switched out, the problem went away.

Same thing caused countrollers to have ?????? in the description.

I found it by searching for controllers with only a couple of controllers connected and then slowely added controllers until I started having problems, replaced the last cable and it worked.

I have max amout of unit id at 11 and it finds 17??????

11 in Hex is 17 in decimal (or whatever numbering system we humans use.)

I have an ELL on each network leaving my computer. Is that a problem?

I doubt it, but to rule it out, disconnect the ELL from the network you are not currently testing.

Don even if I unplug the USB on one of the networks it still sees all 17 controlers on both networks.

unpluged the other USB to the other network and it cant find any controlers.

i m sure its something simple but i cant quite get it.

You don't have two networks configured then.

How do you have things set up? Try something simple. Connect one ELL and CCR Controller to one USB485B, and another ELL and CCR controller to the other USB485B.

That would be two different networks configured.

I have 2 USBs and 2 485B and 2 ELLs that should give me the two coms and two networks. Yes? and I have the two networks setup in the CCR sequences.

That should give you two networks. However, if you are seeing all 17 on one network, then they aren't separated out. I don't use the ELL's enough to know if they would be causing the problem or not.

OK, I think I found your problem. Since you have two logical networks you have to have two ELL networks.

Connect (one at a time) the ELL's that are on one network, go into the hardware manager and select the "LOR RF" tab, Read the configuration of that ELL and change the frequence to a different ELL network (I use 08 for my second ELL network), then click "update configuration"

Once you have each set of ELL's on there own network, you should have any crossover in network traffic.

Frank I went and checked at they were both on the same so I changed one and then the coms stopped recognizing any ELLs. I disconected the ELLs and went straight cat5. Now one network sees 11 controlers and the other sees the other 6. But the 6 are still blinking.....AWGGGG
