Yes. When you press the HD Tuner button, it changes the audio source to the HD Tuner, which in turn sends the power up command, switching the relay on and enabling the radio. When the radio has booted up, it sends its status back over the wire and AutoSense updates the onscreen display.
Also for presets, when you install the newest version (which I’ll push later tonight), redo your presets as I forgot to store which band the preset was. So that’s fixed and preset buttons actually work now.
