Hog 4 systems are capable of running on up to universe 1000.  A processor has a limit to how many universes it may output.  Check out this article to find out how many outputs your console/processor is capable of processing.


Additional universes to your processor's capabilities may be added and mapped, but will not be processed.  These mappings are indicated with a yellow triangle with a black exclamation point in the License Priority column of the rows not being processed.


A universe may be mapped to multiple outputs.  This will require the universe to be listed numerous times with different output types.Multiple outs.JPG

The same universe may also be mapped to multiple widget outputs.

  1. When done with all mappings, press Apply or OK.
