    No one? Well, I don't have a Duet. But, if consistent w/older SBs, you
    should not have to do anything w.r.t. SC. That is, SC identifies the
    clients by their MAC. So, even if the IP changes because of this switch
    (which is really a function of who ever is dishing out the IP addresses
    (your router perhaps?)), SC should still "see" the same client.
    Further, I assume the Duet box and the Duet remote appear as 2 different
    clients to SC. What the remote is probably doing is presenting commands
    to SC w/the box's MAC over the CLI port. That way it looks to SC that
    the box is controlling it's self (i.e. it doesn't matter where the
    commands come from provided they contain the MAC of the client to be
    controlled.). Or, to put it another way, it would be simple for the Duet
    remote to control any SC client (old or new) just by changing the MAC in
    the commands it sends to SC. However, I don't know if this is a feature
    of the Duet remote.

    Confused? Not to worry. I think what you are trying should just work.
    And if not, post again. I'm sure someone w/a Duet will know why.

    No, but switching a Receiver from wireless to wired is not trivial or
    intuitive. You need to factory reset the *Controller* and go thru the
    whole setup process.

    If you just plug in an ethernet cable the SBR will quietly keep using
    the wireless link.
