Event Control modules that have the new input will request the switch to this new one.

Optionally, you can click the Pre button to prepare a selected input. Prepared inputs will be switched faster. Prepare an input at least 5 seconds before requesting the switch for it.

By using the right-click menu

Right-click on the Event Controller module that you want to change the input. The module’s menu will appear.

Select Inputs and then choose the new input. Finally select Switch Now.

The module will prompt you to switch to the new input.
