New VRM, Delete AC Input Icon

I´ve got an off-grid site with no normal AC input, just a generator.

Is it possible to remove the icon for AC Input and just keep the generator icon?

@Peter_A Can I ask when the Generator icon appeared? Did it come up the first time you started the Generator or was it there since the beginning?

The reason I ask is that I have a generator on ACIn1 but it hasn't been running since the new VRM portal update and it doesn't show on mine (yet).

Sorry, I dont know!

Generator was running this weekend so I can´t say :(

Perfect, thanks for the feedback. I'll start the generator to see if it will pop up after some data collection.

@Ingo I think @Peter_A have a Quattro, not a Multi.
A Quattro has two AC inputs, one for grid and one for a generator.

I have an Easy Solar 12/1600/70, I´m quite sure it only has one AC input.

I have the same problem with both my systems.

One uses an Easy Solar 12/1600/70, the other one uses MultiPlus 12/1200/50.

Picture in VRM looks the same for both sites

@Matthias Lange - DE I didn't want to hijack Peter's thread but thought it strange that he has one Input only but two shows on VRM. I on the other hand have a Quattro with Grid and Generator but the generator hasn't run since the portal change and doesn't show (yet). I suspect it needs input before it's recoginised.

I have the same problem. I have a Multi with no grid input. But one shows on VRM

You can change the AC Input from Grid to Generator.

Go here:

Then it looks like that:

In VRM it looks like that:

My VRM says N/A and AC Loads is showing because I have a grid meter set as grid and I don't want to mess about too much with my production system. Maybe I can repeat this with my development system. I think it still demontrates that you can have one AC source box labelled as Generator.

I repeated this with my Development system.
I had exactly the same as you show above - both AC Input and Generator boxes (both showing N/A).
When I applied AC to the MultiPlus, then the AC Input box disappeared from VRM and now I just have Generator:

Unfortunately, when AC is switched off, the AC Input box returns:
