BAR 48 Installer Mode and External Player Mode?

The latest firmware update provides two new modes but I can find no information about them.


Does anyone know what they do?

I do know that "Installer" mode disables the AUTO on feature and enables the always on mode (so it does not power off after no audio signal is detected).

Do you know how to enable/disable this feature?

1. How to check if the "Installer Mode" function is enabled?
2. I understand that to turn it on "ON / OFF" button for 3 to 5 seconds, and to turn it off should you do the same again?
3. Did I understand correctly that this feature causes that there are no problems turning on the soundbar after prolonged non-use?
4. Does this function need to be activated each time or is it enough once?
