I really like this, but have a small concern.
As I understand it, the Teradek will self-configure only if you turn it on during the pre-buffer period. This is okay for a regular webcast with a two-hour pre-buffer period, but a test broadcast only gives 10 minutes. That does not give much time if the Teradek doesn't come up when first started. Ours takes almost 5 minutes to boot up, and does not always come up Ready the first time. If we had to do it again, we would be late for our test broadcast.
Is there any way to trigger the Teradek to accept the auto configuration during the pre-buffer period if it is turned on before the pre-buffer period has started? Obviously, any type of trigger would have to take place during the actual pre-buffer period. Or is the only method to turn it off and take our chances on bringing it up again during the pre-buffer period, or just never turn it on early for a test?
Again, for actual events with a two-hour pre-buffer, this is not an issue. And I guess a test is a test is a test, so it is no big deal then. I was just wondering if there was another way to trigger the auto-configuration than the poor little switch on the side of the box.
