SVBony introduced the ability to store the settings in a recent SDK :
<< SVBCAMERA_API SVB_ERROR_CODE SVBSetAutoSaveParam(int iCameraID, SVB_BOOL enable); >>
I don't use this feature. In my mind, it's the wrong way to go. The settings should be stored in the client software, not at low level, or you may experience
the issue you just discovered.
Sadly, AstroDMX seems to use it.
Thanks for sharing your experience.
