DCS-200 boots up.

The Status Menu provides information about the current input on Program (the button that
is lit solid), and the input that is next to be transitioned to Program (the button that is
blinking). The Status Menu always updates as "current" and "next" sources change.
In the Status Menu, the variable fields are as follows:
Table 4-2. Status Menu Conventions

[Hact x Vact @ Vr]
[*Hact x Vact @ Vr*]
To return to the Status Menu from any point within the Setup Menu, press ESC
To display the Setup Menu from the Status Menu, press SEL.

If Menu Context is

for the "next" transition automatically displays the Input Menu. This menu always
reflects the source currently on Program. To return to the Status Menu, press
If Menu Context is OFF, the Status Menu remains on display when you select a
Program Input Type — Specifies the type of input signal currently on Program.
Program Input Format — Indicates the current input video format, in the form:
Hact x Vact @ Vr Hz
If the currently selected input does not have a valid input signal, the Input Format
field displays Invalid Signal.

format has not been "best guessed" or saved.
Asterisks. The format has been "best guessed."
