Godox groups and channels

I have been a long time user of Godox flash ever since the Ving 850 with Li_ion batteries was introduced.

I was delighted with their triggering system as it was simple and dead reliable.

I had started out on their 433Mhz FT16 system with 16 channels and a LOT of groups ( I forget how many).

When I switched to the 2.4Ghz system with the receivers built in I have been reduced to 5 groups. For the most part that is not an issue but sometimes I need more than 5 groups as I have up to 8 lights or more in various parts of a scene that need controlling.

I still walk around and adjust them manually but sometimes it seems the trigger resets the flashes to a new setting. In some cases switching them to off (OF) which is surprising as there is no group set to off.

I have searched for FW updates to rectify bugs but the group limits are a puzzle.

Has anyone using a large number of lights developed a workaround?
