Media bay modules of different types on the same bus

Media bay modules of different types on the same bus

Media bay modules of different types on the same bus

(OP)
Can I put an asm8+ and a dsm16+ on the same bus?
What are the guidelines of the types of modules that can share a bus?

This is how I have the cards:

bus 2: dsm 32+
bus 3: dsm 32+
bus 4: dsm 16+ on half of bus 4 and asm8+ on a quarter of th bus
bus 5: gatm4
bus 6: dtm
bus 7: dtm

Please let me know if this will work

thanks!

RE: Media bay modules of different types on the same bus

You have to have like modules on each bus. The easiest solution is to replace the DSM 16 with a 32, and use ATAs on that bus instead of the ASM 8. The other solution would be to replace the DSM 16, and use IP sets, which is a whole nother story

RE: Media bay modules of different types on the same bus

I always thought I could have station modules with Analog station modules on the same bus. So if I have any single ASM on the BCM then that bus is essentially gone? I can't put anything else on that bus but other ASMs?

That kinda stinks.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But, rather to
skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body
thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming ~ WOO HOO what a ride!~

Correct

RE: Media bay modules of different types on the same bus

Aye, there's the rub....
