I know this information is out there some where, I just don't know where.

How do I daisy chain two renard ss16 controllers. I understand the cable hookup, but how do you tell the system which channels are controlled by which controller. if someone could point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Remember, if they are daisy-chained, they are just one 32 channel Renard board and Vixen just see them as one controller. So just set up Plugin for 32 channels. If these are your only controllers, then you will have only one Renard plugin for channels 1-32. The Firmware takes care of all the work.

Provided you are not using any special FW, such as Start Addressing.

I really do appreciate the info.

Two controllers is probably all I will have this year, running a set of arches.

using sequences from your website.

You have been a big help. this will be my first year with some animation in my display, and it can be over whelming at times.

The controller plugged into the pc will be 1-16 and the next controller will be 17-32.
