Backup datafeed in NT7

Related to the little ZF problem today - did anyone have a backup datafeed connected in NT7. I had iqfeed as a backup to ZF but frankly didn't notice the top line correct (possibly because ZF wasn't down entirely but still trickling quotes through??) Order book is not backed up by iqfeed so I couldn't judge that at all.

Does anyone have a TT/ZF combo? Or has anyone noticed in the past whether NT handles the situation effectively?

I trade with TT on one pc and have Zenfire on another pc as a "backup feed". Problem is that the backup is way less reliable.

I only use NT/TT for live trading. ZF is way overated imo and not worth paying a premium on a per contract basis.

Thx, but I meant did anyone use multibroker NT 7 with TT and ZF for data, for example. Or any other broker/datafeed with ZF.

In NT7, the backup datafeed is supposed to kick in when the primary goes down. Did anyone see this work effectively?

I understand. I first connevt to TT and then ZF (in the rare event I want to take a trade in the ZF account). The TT never gives me problems, but the ZF account disconnects all too often.)
