    At the moment i only have a pot connected via 4 pin mini din, but planning on a button box and sequencial shifter. so will be ending up with at least 3 sockets, now can i plug and unplug the leads while the board is still connected to the usb?

    another reason i ask is i have a 4 pin mini din socket on my handbrake and i could accidently unplug that and am thinking of getting a lockable type socket.

    Sorry Nigel :p

    Been a tad busy lately! I have never tried tbh, but I think it probably will for buttons, encoders may well too if the util prog has been run, but pots/H/E sensors / LC's I doubt...... Also you might hurt the unit...... but I doubt it :)
