DualRack setup in ilive requires two MixRacks per system to create the 128ch into 32mixes architecture.
Fixed format systems use an M-ACE card in Master MixRack port-B to bridge to Slave MixRack portA which is built in ACE normally used for the surface link.
The only available patch-able port in a fixed-format DualRack system is port-B in the Slave MixRack which handles 64ch, so you cannot share any more than 64ch with a 2nd system digitally.

If you have modular iLive hardware, then you can fit MADI or DANTE cards to port-A and port-B which provide splitting and custom routing capability, so it may be possible to distribute more than 64ch between systems.

With your hardware, you can create one DualRack system using your iDR64+iDR48 with a choice of surface to operate. 112 XLR mic/line inputs into 32 mixes, not a bad system! you would need another two MixRacks to create a 2nd system. With the Slave port-Bs you could share 64ch, any additional splits would be analogue.
