Hello Steven,

What kind of  wiring from the controller to the terminal ?

Are you using a patch panel ?

If a patch panel, are there connection indicator lights that are on solid or
that flicker? Try swapping patch panel cables to see if the problem moves to
another device.

Try to move the two problem terminals to another port.

Or move the whole port run to another port.

Does the 5494 have a config mode like the 394 where it shows a grid of all
the devices the controller sees ?  If so, try that and see if the problem
devices show up on the grid.

Using RTVCFGSRC of the *CTL and its devices is a relatively safe way to
delete the entire controller and then recreate it. If all else has failed,
delete the controller and then recreate it.
