1. REMOTE FUNCTION
The remote functions are use to modify every settings in the main menu. Those
functions call the same event as the remote control. Moreover, some news functions are
available only by the serial port, such as read/write some information into the microcontroller. The syntax for each function is always the same. The ‘#” character is the start
flag followed by the function name in capital letter and a space. The space tells the SH2
that the function name is ending. Finally, the parameters required for each function are
separated by a space and ending by the ‘\r’ character or “Enter”
#FunctionName_param1_param2_param3_param4\r
ASPECT
This function set the aspect ratio. If the extract or through mode is chosen, the default value
