Using the Setup Menu
When the Auto Input Save mode is enabled, the system automatically saves the selected
input after it has been acquired for the first time. If the In Auto Acquire mode is OFF, the
field has no effect. The default is ON.
The Auto Take mode allows you to bring an input source to Program by simply pressing an
input button (1 through 8, SDI, or LOGO), and without requiring a Take.
Regardless of your In Auto Acquire settings, the input button you select blinks "fast," to
indicate that the system is performing an action such as an auto acquire, file association, or
another action. When the system completes its tasks for the input, the button blinks "slow"
to indicate that the input is ready to be taken to Program. Lastly, the button lights solid and
the source goes to Program automatically.

When an input without a saved configuration file is selected.

timing is different from the saved configuration.
When OFF, the system uses the last known configuration for each input, to the
greatest extent possible.
