I have DN19 and DN20 now and it doesn't work.
Only because the INT mapping on the riser is not right?

http://www.morex.com.tw/drawing/MAR122-J%20Drawing.pdf shows some IDSEL
jumper with ADxx numbers. What could these be?

Still DN's?

So at least try the different jumper settings (without additional info,
I hope Morex responds to my emails).
Else do a little soldering.

Looking at the photo I don't think I see a bridge...
