MultiPlus and Phoenix VE.Direct connected to Venus GX at the same time?

Is it possible to have a MultiPlus and Phoenix VE.Direct inverter connected to Venus GX at the same time? Sometimes only one of them will be on.

@osaether You can connect both products at the same time and have both on at the same time. Both will show up in the device list. The overview screen will not work as expected.
The inverter will not be shown there. The MultiPlus will be shown there when it is turned on

I tried today and the inverter is shown on the main screen in Venus. I can also turn it on/off in the menu. The MultiPlus is shown as well.

The power consumption is shown as zero even when I have around 50W drawn from it. Is this a known issue? I have upgraded it to the latest firmware, v1.12.
