Raymarine networking help
I am having a couple of issues with my Raymarine system. The system was installed here in Panama and had been working fine till the autopilot control head died. The technican does not really know what he is doing and never shows up then he is supposed to so I have to do things myself going forward (Life in the tropics!) The system consists of 2-e125's (MFD's), 1 CP370 sounder module with 1000 kw transducer, ev200 autopilot with P70r control head. The problem started with the control head started not turning on. I could control the autopilot with the MFD's but I had to send the p70r back to Raymarine so I unplugged the p70r and sent it back. Now the MFD cannot find the pilot at all. Is there a reason for the MFD to not be able to find the pilot? I did not cap the connector to the p70r and that is the only thing I can think of.
I also have a fusion 750 that I would like to control from the MFD's but I only have a Seatalk HS plug available on the slave MFD (I don't have a network switch and would like to avoid it). Can I plug the fusion in to the slave and have it work? I know I can plug it into the Seatalkng but I have heard it is better in the HS port.
