You've got the ports right but I'm not sure of the hex ID codes.

All 3 ports are I2C prts, the port itself doesn't have a number or name but the device has an address.

Some I2C devices can have their address changed, usually done by sending it a command.

I don't know about the EZ robot rgb leds though. But connect it and by default itll probably copy JDs eyes.

If you want them to work independent of each other you will need to change the I2C address of one of them and then change the I2C address in the settings of the RGB animator to the new I2C address.

As far as I know (and I haven't looked recently so it may have been changed) the information to change the I2C address of the RGB animators has not been given yet, if it hasn't been you will need to wait for EZ-Robot to provide details.

There is a control to change the i2c address of the RGB - but it's so funny because I forget where I put it! I will get back to you soon

Turns out i forgot to save it in ARC. The code was there, but no button to use it. Haha

I have added the Change i2c utility for the next version of ARC - which will be this evening.

i made victory to early.you can change the adres.but here's a problem.
best to use one rgb at the time to change an adres.taking a second one,
causes a problem,you need to close and reopen ARC to validate the adres.
so you need to save your project with two rgb els the ezbv4 goed into lock up.
and thats when ezb or rgb gets confused.it works for about 45 min,
then one rgb goes out.then you need to start from the beginning,
to get bolt of them working again.with original adres.
