The switch configuration option lets you control whether the Digital Broadcaster will acknowledge or ignore a manual switch (a switch using the buttons on the switch faceplate). To change the switch configuration click on the configuration option.
To enable the Digital Broadcaster to acknowledge a manual (faceplate) switch, select On from the drop-down list. When the server detects a manual switch, it will ignore programmed switch events until the operator returns the switch to its home path manually.
To prevent the Digital Broadcaster from acknowledging a manual (faceplate) switch, select Off from the drop-down list. The server will then ignore manual (faceplate) switches.
Click the Save button at the bottom of the screen. To return to the Config page without making any changes, click on the Config tab.
When manual detection of switch action is on and the operator wants the switch to hold the same path regardless of what events have been scheduled, the operator locks the switch. There are two ways to lock the switch.
With the switch away from the home port, go to the Switch section of the Dashboard and click on Lock for the output port you want to lock.
Manually change the switch path by pressing the buttons on the switch panel. Consult your switch operations manual for guidance.
This table illustrates how the switch behaves, depending on whether it is locked into a path or unlocked.
