Pushing Auto Button a Second Time Should Not Stop the Transition

If you double hit or push the auto button on TriCaster a second time during a transition it stops the transition. This is something that is easy to do by mistake in the heat of a live prodution and has been the cause of many bad switches over the years. I was told this was originally a "feature" but broadcast switchers like Sony, GVG, etc do not do this. I compare it to launching a rocket, if you push the launch button a second time it doesn't stop the rocket...

Ross Carbonite switchers give you options on what happens when you double punch the auto button. Halt/forward, reverse, halt/reverse, cut, ignore.
