“O” stands for current old setting, and “N” is the new setting.
You can only change the “N” setting.

- Use the LEFT and RIGHT arrow keys to select other digits. Once the desired parameter is displayed, press ENTER to make the new value the current ("O") value. You will be asked to confirm the setting change. Press ENTER to accept or BACK to cancel the parameter change.
All entered values are stored in the unit's non-volatile memory and will be restored after a power cycle.
