  7. Select ""AES67 Flow"" (red arrow). Select the channels that you with to add to the AES67 flow (blue arrow). Click ""Create"" (yellow arrow).


  8. While still viewing the Device View in Dante Controller, select the ""Transmit"" tab. A list of all the transmit flows created for the MXA910 as well as the Multicast IP address and Multicast Flow Number will be shown. Verify that these are correct.
