Changing between several MS Pubcenter ad units

In the configuration file there is a single entry for secondary ID. As it can be hard to know what pubcenter categories are going to perform well I would like to have several ad units whith different categories in order to compare their performance. 

What would be the best way to do this? Can I add several adunits from one publisher in the xml file? Or would it be better to change secondary ID in the code when I invalidate the control?

I'm using xna if that has any effect.

Thanks in advance!

Right, in V1 you can only have 1 setting per provider per culture i'm afraid.  This is one of the things we hope to rectify in V2.

However if you have several remote configuration files you could have your app/game cycle through them (changing the selected config file at runtime), not ideal but at least one way to do it.

Alternately just change the AdID / Secondary ID in your remote config file to update your apps when you feel the ECPM isn't working for you.


Hope this helps.
