VE Can to VE Bus interface

Hi All, i've just attended the webinar so have found this community which i didn't know about. i have an issue with my PV system display and comms. 3kw solar array with two victron smart mppt can controllers connected with VECan to a CCGx panel. Also a phoenix 48V 5 KW invertor with only has VEBus comms link, I’ve now added a VE Can to VE Bus interface to allow the phoenix data to be remotely displayed on the CCGX, I only have one Cat5 running about 100m to the house. All the above are connected in series with terminators on each end. The problem is that I have no data from the invertor for any of the devices on the VECan. If I plug both VECan and VEBus into the CCGX all is working so I definitely have an issue with the interface. I haven't as yet updated any firmware as i need to do this on the pheonix using the BT interface i think. All the kit except the PV is victron, even the 8 x 210Ah AGM are victron.

Just a guess but according to this:

https://www.victronenergy.com/live/ve.can:ve.bus_to_ve.can_interface_manual

the VE.Can to VE.Bus interface is for one specific purpose only, not as a way to run a Multi on the VE.Can. bus.
