Question: How do we change the 3x 'Scroll Lock' key press in changing the switch port to increase the speed of the switching?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

An administrator can change the specific 'Hot-key' used for switching sources from Scroll Lock to any other key in the "Setup" screen of the On-Screen-Display menu (on the OSD selection menu, press F1 to display the SETUP page). That being said, this would still require three presses of the Hot Key.

For more information on changing Hot-key, please see the "System Settings" section on page 38 of the Raritan MCD-LED17116 User Guide.
