Hi Dolphin Jockey, welcome to the forum!
There is a setting for Mask Type, which for most accurate therapy I think needs to be set correctly.
My recollection is that on the S8 series machines, SmartStart only worked when the machine is set to certain types of masks. For example, perhaps it worked on Full Face mask type but not on nasal pillows mask type. The details should be mentioned somewhere in the Clinician setup manual.
Thanks for the welcome. It's truly appreciated. Thanks also for your comment regarding the S8 mask selection. I've been using a full-face mask (a Mirage Quattro) for several years, and a nasal mask before that. Can't remember what mask I was on when I received the S8 7.5 years ago and it has not been serviced by a clinician since then. I certainly will look at that parameter.
