I keep getting problems "seeing" all the components in my system via Victron Connect.
I have a CerboGX with ve.direct cables to a BMV-712, a ve.bus connection to a MultiPlus Compact, and with a ve.direct connection to four Smart Solar MPPTs (using ve.direct-to-usb adapters from each MPPT to a powered USB hub, then a USB cable to the CerboGX).
I like the simplicity of the ve.Smart network for synchronizing the MPPTs and the interface is much faster and intuitive than the clunky setup of using Victron Connect to go the the CerboGX's web-based panel to access the MultiPlus. Of course, then I can't see or control them via the GX.
I've set up DVCC control of the MPPTs via the GX and the hardwired ve.direct etc network, but frequently encounter problems seeing all the components of Victron Connect. It looks like if I use bluetooth to look at the MPPT operations, the resulting bluetooth connection may be conflicting with the ve.direct connection, and I then have trouble seeing things like the MultiPlus.
Victron Connect also sometimes shows two CerboGXs, I'm guessing that one that is bluetooth linked and one that is ve.direct linked.
1) Do I need to NEVER use the bluetooth connection to any of the components to keep the ve.direct network reliably operational?
2) Is there a simple way to re-establish ve.direct "control"?
