Daisy-chaining (going from one receiver to another) is recommended but not always possible. A maximum of 16 receivers can be daisy chained from a controller port.

If more that 16 receivers are required for your system, or if you do not want to daisy-chain the receiver connections, use the CM9760-CDU-T.
