Hi, wondering if it safe to avoid multiple controllers for 821 and the 841 coming. I have a few slots open on a controller and would love it was functional and safe to do so. I know it is not recommended and Canaan states you should have a separate controller for each miner version but figured would check with the community to see if there has been success.

I know it is not recommended and Canaan states you should have a separate controller for each miner version but figured would check with the community to see if there has been success.
The main problem is that when upgrading the *.mcs miner firmware it is applied to ALL miners on the controller. Considering the .mcs firmware is model-specific and a 821 will not like thinking it is now an 841 and visa-versa I don't recommend mixing them.

Been there, done that mixing 721& 741's on 1 controller....
I just ordered 2x of the 841's and got another controller with them for that very reason.

Appreciate the details in the reply NotFuzzyWarm, about what I figured but thought I'd ask around.

Lock it up Mods, thank you.
