Well, there is. It's linked from the store. Paper is sooo 90's and who wants to go back to.. oh wait. https://www.exxoshost.co.uk/forum/viewt ... f=27&t=161

Remember that this thing is on the back of the Mega STE which is hard to reach a small it is.....The function of the button also does not seem to work.
There is a pin header under the button so you can add an external button, just for MST(E)s. I realise that it's not included in the manual, however it says ext. button on the board. Unless you've got the first version.. If so, I'll trade you that one for a new one. Mega users should have that function. PM ME

That could indicate your PSU needs a recap. Pressing reset will always bring you into low res since there is no (certain, due to old PSUs and such) way to detect if there's been a reset. Cold boot will bring you to saved state, I usually keep the saved state as hires since a reset will bring me back to lowres.

Reflections? How? Could I see a picture? There's no trickery done to the signal from the switch (apart from the 6ohms added by the multiplexer).
