E682 Universe Selection Question

In looking around I did not see this issue discussed

I have 14 universes I am trying to drive across 3 E682's. On the 3 controllers I have them divided up like this

E682 - 1 = 1 - 5 Universe
E682 - 2 = 6 - 10 Universe
E682 - 3 = 11 - 14 Universe

In the Universe Selection section, in the Mulitcast area, I have entered in the universes above on each controller, and entered "0" for every other box, including the Unicast section. I then selected the Update Universe Numbers button. As soon as I leave the page, and come back, I get where in the first 5 (or 4 in the case of #3) the universes I have assigned to the controller. All the "0"s I entered in the rest are replaced and an example looks like this:

E682 # 1 I see this when coming back to the webpage:
1-2-3-4-5-6-7 8-9-10-11-12

E682 # 2 here is what I see after I come back to the page:
6-7-8-9-10-6-7 8-9-10-11-12

E682 # 3 looks like this:
11-12-13-14-5-6-7 8-9-10-11-12

It basically puts the universes I assigned in the first boxes, but then puts the added numbers in the remaining boxes instead of the "0"s I entered. What am I not doing right?? The manual says you can enter "0" and that you should not have duplicated universes in boxes, etc..... I am trying to get to the point where I have a full up system test on my RGB Tree, as soon as I can get this figured out.

in the universes you are not using, put 101, 102, 103 and so on
It's the same on the e6804 as well and that's a work around I've adopted too. I just used universe numbers well away from what I wil be using. I too read the manual a number of times and tried multiple times to place "0" in the unused sections. It may be someting Jim needs to look at in the firmware.
