7. Fixed bug where A2-2000 LED wouldn't go red in shutdown.
8. Changed menu-associated buttons (e.g. ZOOM on C2-1000) so that they only come on if at that menu AND adjusting.
9. Changed adjusting routine so that brackets stop flashing (i.e. can no longer adjust) after 20 seconds of inactivity.
10. Added menu item for 'Aspect change'.
11. Added in menu item for units with RGB input but no m.comp to allow selection between 'Normal' and 'Auto' De-int for 1080i input.

3. Added support for more S2 units.
4. Fixed CC-300 issue where negative numbers were not always allowed for.

8. Added 'RGB1 termination' option in System menu for units with PC/HD Loop output.

Version 120: c15_c2_2000_1.0.44_v120.exe
1. Can now lock to a 525i/625i YUV / YPbPr source - but requires that source is clean and jitter free.
