I’m patching our new Chauvet Freedom Sticks into our Pathway Cognito2 board. Patching on it is straight forward. The board does this automatically when you chose the luminere. Each Stick uses 8 DMX slots. Right now we have four Sticks. The wireless channel is correct. I set each starting DMX address eight numbers apart. The first two patch in with no issues. When I get to the third one, only one slot shows, so I can’t patch. I have plenty of DMX space, I’m only at around 133.
Does anyone know what’s happening here? Thanks.

I wonder if you’ve change the Fixture Type on #3&4 to Freedom Sticks. If they’re just consuming one slot, sounds like they’re still dimmers. The label should say what they are or select them and touch the blue (i) Info button. Remember you can multi-select and patch them en masse.
Didn't need to change the fixture type. I was trying to patch each stick individually. When I went back in and used the shift key and patched the remaining 10 in masse, I had no issues.
BTW, your videos are extremely helpful and great. Thanks, Rob!
