MUX.New()

Type: CLASS FUNCTION

Purpose: Creates a new MUX object.

This object is a software construct that must be associated with a physical ECM8 before it is useful.

Similar to Pstat objects, a MUX object does not need to be associated with specific ECM8 hardware when MUX.New() is called. If a system contains more than one ECM8, the user can select among the available multiplexers in the Setup() function's dialog box.

The associated ECM8 is identified by a MuxNo variable.

Usage: MUX.New(Tag, MuxNo, Prompt)

or
