Al Saunders Posted February 16 Share Posted February 16 Hey Guys, I know I'm late to the S5/S6 party but I'm getting ready to convert from good ole S4 to S6 pretty soon. Before doing so I am making some changes to controllers. I'm replacing one 16 channel controller with two 4 channel controllers due to distance between the elements. I was only using 7 channels of the 16 channel controller. One of the 4 channel controllers will have the same unit id that the 16 channel controller did but the other 4 channel will have a new unit id. I felt the easiest thing to do was to add a 4 channel devise above the 16 channel devise in the grid and then add a 4 channel devise below the 16 channel devise. I copied channels 1-3 from the 16 channel controller to the 4 channel controller with the same unit id and then copied channels 4-7 of 16 channel controller to channels 1-4 of new 4 channel controller. What I did and the reason for my question/post is after making these changes I deleted the 16 channel devise and saved the channel config. After doing so something went off in the back of my head from years ago hearing either one of you guys or the Great Chuck Smith say "NEVER DELETE A DEVICE or GROUP of channels" but I don't remember what it was. Either way, its deleted in the channel config and on 2 of my sequences so far. So did I mess up the "Behind the scene" workings in the software by deleting? I'm trying to get the sequences updated and just updated the channels in my Visualizer in preparation for the S6 conversion. Also, in Visualizer it doesn't know or care what channel devise it is does it? Do I have to delete the 16 channel devise and add the two new 4 channel devises? I hope not. :) All three of these controllers are regular A/C channel devises, no RGB/Pixel stuff. Thar's fine as is. Anyway, thanks for reading this and would love some input. Have a blessed afternoon/evening and stay safe. Thanks, Al Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
