Pipes and Channels...I realize this type of question has been asked to death but I have not yet found a clear answer...the project has 3 or more transmitters each capable of sending to any of the same 10 or so selected Receivers, but only one per transmitter. As there are only 6 Pipes available, changing the pipe address will leave me short of the required Receiver quantity, so I was going to keep the Pipe addresses constant and change only the channel for each Receiver, selecting the required Transmit channel thru a menu on the Transmitter. Confirmation of data received is not critical so i will provably not look for it. Is this a workable approach for this project. If the above is not clear, please ask specifics and i will try to answer. Doug

  • maybe the reason you have not found a clear answer is because, just like you, the people have not posted a question. – jsotola Jan 27 '18 at 9:57

    I’d suggest having the same channel and pipe, but have the fist byte in the packet indicate the receivers ID. – Gerben Jan 27 '18 at 10:44
  • Gerben ..Thanks for your answer.. if I understand correctly..1/ the selected receiver ID is sent to all receivers..if the ID does not match the selected receiver ID variable, then the data is ignored, only the selected receiver with matching ID will action the data. 2/. As i have 3 plus transmitters acting at the same time, would using the same pipe and channel cause confusion, even though each transmitter is targeting a unique receiver. – Doug Jan 27 '18 at 21:11
  • Gerben...Your suggestion was the way to go, it appears that you cannot change the CHANNEL and I assume PIPE, from outside SETUP, so supplying each receiver with a unique ID works and proved to be quite easy. When I finish and have proven the sketch I will post.Thankyou. – Doug Jan 30 '18 at 1:21
  • Moderator..how do i get the recipients name to highlight so that he is notified of my comment.thanks. – Doug Jan 30 '18 at 1:23
