Need DEEP data on how Dreamstation BiPAP AutoSV work

Need DEEP data on how Dreamstation BiPAP AutoSV work
Well this has been a major quest for understanding the New Dreamstation BiPAP AutoSV machines…
 
I have learned they now track three breaths not five as did the older System One 650 and 960 machines.
 
I believe they are more sensitive and can be messed up even by holding your breath for a breath of two??
 
I also believe I have learned what the correct term for the problem I felt with my old 950and seem to be have some problem with a new Dreamststion BiPAP Auto SV machine it is:

VOLUME air volume, not air flow…My 950 lost air volume and even with good pressure and AHIs etc. reports I was crashing daily.
 
The Newer Dreamstation ASV system is having problems with its volume..most of the time I feel it is too low. I got an hint that this might be adjustable by changing some of the settings.
 
The older System One 950/950 seemed to provide more air Volume that this newer system.
 
The Dream Station ASV system seems to be a little irregular, sometime too high or so much volume it blows the mask off others too little: only a slight whisper of air flowing across my face, almost to the point I feel it is not helping at all.  
 
Here are the settings for Oscar
