Im a musician and I use my MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) with Mojave to send a Multitrack audio channels thru the Ethernet jack Out to a Cat5e cable to the PreSonus switcher (SW5E) the to the Series III PreSonus mixer (StudioLive 32). I’ve test it and I can stream or send just 8 channels of the 64 ins/outs that appears available in my MacBook, it divides my channels into groups of 8 channels (1-8, 9-16, 16-24, etc) is there a way I can send and receive more channels thru AVB/Network Device Browser in my Mac?

Interesting that your Mac receives AVB signals. It has been said always that AVB recording is only possible in a direct connection between mixer and Mac (no switch involved). There is one article in the Knowledege Base which might be helpful. Here is the link:

I haven't found and seen any other article about AVB recording. Recording via USB or SD card is more popular. The banking of 8 channels/streams as sends and returns is correct, but Digital Patching allows you to send anything anywhere... Probably not on the Mac with its fixed settings, but within the PreSonus "ecosystem".
