I looked at the scene file and everything looks good. I won't be able to test it on my X32 until later this evening. We did have a similar report of AES50 channels being linked just before the old forum was closed. But I wasn't able to duplicate it. I'll give it a try later tonight.
Whatever you send down the AES50 pipe will come out the other end. That means that if you send (from Mon console) the Local 1-8, AES50 B1-8, B9-16, B17-24, B25-32, that will be what will be available at FOH as the AES50 1-8, 9-16, 17-24, 25-32, 33-40.
Welcome to the forum. You could contact CARE (phone at (+1) 702-800-8290 for the US and Canada and (+44) 1562 732290 in Europe or email CARECREA@musictribe.com) and see if they can provide a source. Another option, if you have or know of someone with a 3D printer is to design and print off the rack ears. We have done that for the X-Air consoles. If you need help designing them, just let me know.
Actually Vic, I vaguely remember someone trying that (connect both AES50 ports with same cable) many moons ago and reporting back that it did in fact work. I don't recall the actual situation and why they needed to try it, but do remember that it did work. That said, network cable testers can be bought relatively cheaply (ebay, etc.) and would probably be a good thing to have in your tool pouch.
Welcome to the forum. The Ultranet port in the back of the X32/M32 console is connected to the Routing, Ultranet screen of that console. What is assigned there is what goes out that Ultranet port. It is also typically assigned to the 5th and 6th bank of the AES50 to be sent to the stagebox Ultranet ports.
If you want the P16's connected to the X32 Producer to have the same inputs as those connected to the M32 or stageboxes, you have to do one of 2 things
* Assign the AES50 5th and 6th banks to 2 of the Routing, home (inputs), then assign those individual channel strips to the Routing, Ultranet screen. But that eats up 2 of the 4 input banks.
* Duplicate the inputs to both the M32 and X32 and duplicate the Routing, Ultranet assignments on both consoles.
Actually that is not completely correct. I work for a large corporation where all of their laptops (including the new models they will be distributing this year) do include ethernet ports. Granted, there seems to be a trend with the consumer line of laptops to not include this port. As Rex mentioned one of those USB to ethernet adapters works just fine.
