On the latest version of SSDR 1.7.XXX I see a small button on the right in between the pan-adapter and waterfall screen that says "LIVE" while  hovering over it I get the text that says "Jump to live waterfall stream" What is the function / use of this? I can't seem to find documentation about it. Thanks.

If you 'pull' on the waterfall on the right, you can scroll back through 'history'.  Whe you do that, the waterfall does not move, it is not 'live'. Clicking on the 'live' button makes it scroll again.

Tony I am pretty sure this has always been there. It is not new in 1.7.

ok guys thanks for the quick replies. I guess I am not seeing that functionality... clicking this button does not seem to do anything. Ok about it being there in previous versions... thanks for the quick reply though...

it's not real obvious at first :)  It looks like you should be able to click on it but of course  you can't until you move the display time on the right.

Glad you found out how it works and makes sense one you see it work. hehe
