How does the auto select of the Chord Hugo Mscaler work?


Can someone explain how the auto select of the Mscaler operates? Does it switch to a newly started source?  When listening to music using USB, will it switch to tv on optical as soon as I turn on TV, or do I need to stop the music? And does it switch back to music if I pause and play it?

What does it mean that USB has priority?


And with more than two sources?

Sometimes, it's best if you ask the people who made the gizmo you're having a problem with.  I've always had good luck contacting the manufacturer about how this or that should work.





I think so too, as it is not in the manual, but the question has been here for a few months. For instance: does it switch to a connection that becomes active only when all other inputs are off/not used, or does it switch anyway (which I would like: listening to music (USB) I switch to tv (OPTICAL 1), will it switch to tv or does it keep playing music)?

I got an answer from Chord, good tip.


Dear Sir, thanks for your email.

Testing this on my own Mscaler; if it is running over USB on Auto, and I switch the TV on, it will stay on USB until the signal is stopped. At that point, it switches to the optical signal from the TV.
All the best
