Addressing dmx ports to different universes

Maybe I was mistaken but at one point in Hog history you used to be able to change the universe coming out of the dmx ports on the back of the consoles. Or if it hasn't that would be killer if it could be unlocked to do so. I.E- Make dmx port 1 Universe 8. That's all.

    I've asked for this too...
    Along with being allowed to patch ANY sACN or Artnet Universe up to your allotted universe count. So if I have a Roadhog and I want to use Artnet 1, 5, 20, 58, 101, 31, 15, and 4, I can!

    I very much agree. Running servers in line with another console is hard enough but then not being able to differ universes is a pain. Lots of confusion. The dmx ports would be killer for a touring show that instead of having to move universes around for a Road house or just being able to connect hard line in from a FOH position. It's 2016........ There has been a man on the moon....... And I can't switch 4 hard line ports......

    jxgriffi, what you are asking for selection several universes should already be possible....
    Hog is just counting in the standard way with subnet and universe.
    You have 16 universes (counts from 0 to 15) per subnet which also has a range from 0 to 15.
    So you can select all 256 artnet universes

    Yes...ethernet wise you can, but I can't send those universes out the physical ports (if I need something special at the desk from one of those).

    Just makes life a little easier for road guys on a budget.
