Hi Merle,

It is the very last setting in the Services Menu in the Settings Screen of the Venus-device:

2.1 Configurable parameters

Hi Guy

Is two-way communication a necessity? Could it affect whether or not the Colour Control data is being logged onto the VRM Portal?

What will happen if I enable it?

I don't think so.

It is for the receiving of information back from the VRM portal like VEConfigure files for remote inverter/charger programming and firmware updates to VE.Direct devices.
