  • Connecting the KBD300A to a matrix and is expecting the number on the KBD300A to display the camera number.
  • The LCD doesn't default to 01 in direct mode.

Resolution

The KBD300A or KBD200A will not display the camera number when connected to a matrix system when configured to Matrix Mode or ASCii Mode.
