You know what - I tried to get this working today with Shownet and had an issue (running 10.4) Gary is working on it. I believe the INPUT selections in the combo box are now redundant.

Basically, in Patch by Output, Patch By Fixture and Look, there is an INPUT softkeys that allows you to specify a protocol and an Absolute address (XDMX). There should be no need to configure the inputs via the routing.

Snapshot is a bit tricker. It is a TOOL that will put deltas on fixtures which share the exact same patch as the desk. So, if you want to 'grab' the DMX levels from an old desk (say a Hog II), patch your Palette to the same DMX as the old show, initiate the Snapshot tool and the Univeral Attribute Control will do the inverse kinematics on the DMX to give you deltas in degrees, hertz, rpm etc.

This is not a full descritpion (obviously). Strand will be updating the manual.
