Feature Request: VRM - ET112 meter Role

Hi @Guy Stewart (Victron Community Manager) @mvader (Victron Energy)
what's the best way to ask for a Feature Request ?

I don't know if anyone has asked for this before.
But my main system is a pair of MP II 48/5000 with a BYD Battery stack.
and a second battery that is separate from the main one that charges and discharges via a smaller Multiplus. I know it's not the most efficient way, but it keeps the two batteries separated.

I have a ET112 to monitor the in's and out's of the smaller system. but in VRM, it's only shows up if I set it's role as a PV inverter.

screenshot-2023-11-06-at-10-39-11-i-am-motorhomele.pngbut this effects the Total solar figure... as it's not solar, and power flows both ways

It would be nice if I could have a DC inverter role for the ET112 meter, that worked similar to the PV inverter


But did not effect the solar readings, and showed the positive and negative flow.

I can't be the only one, I got the idea from watching @Andy's Off Grid Garage youtube channel !

or is there already a way to do this better than I am doing it ?

just wanted to BUMP this

maybe I am the only person that has this set up.
I have now set the role to Generator, at least it does not affect my total solar.
but still does not show the two way flow :(
