Glad all went well.
I just saw zonk's answer about turning the setting to manual in order to change the hose setting. My machine is set to auto for CTRL and though the hose setting shows auto, I can adjust it if I want by turning the dial.
I just got this machine and I think the pressure relief setting is on but I have no way to tell as that was done by DME. I'll have to check in with him. I'm pretty sure it is because I hear a sound which changes when I breathe in and out. Do you hear that as well? This one is somewhat quieter than the respironics which actually kept me awake! Strange thing about the machines (or the ones I've had).. they are always really quiet the first few nights (can't hear it at all!) but then get louder (sigh)
Do I understand correctly that you had another autoset 10 before this? Or were you just having a problem with the auto setting itself?

I use the ClimateLine and I have both of my settings on auto, and it works well for me.
Breathingwell.........a quick question for you on your Airsense machine.
I used to use an S9 and with the heated hose you could run the Auto climate control in Auto with the default auto humidity setting of 80% humidity, but while running in Auto you could still change/adjust your hose temperature without having to go to manual.
When I got an early version of the Airsense AutoSet back in September of 2014 I immediately noticed that I could not run the climate control the same way as I used to on the S9. On my Airsense if I have it in Auto Climate control it defaults to humidity at 85% and hose temp to 80 degrees F. I can no longer adjust the hose temp while leaving it in Auto, instead the only way to change hose temp is to set it into Manual mode and then control Humidity setting and Hose temp setting independently.
It sounds like from your post that on your Airsense machine you can run it in Auto, but still control the Hose temp even though you're in Auto mode.......is this the case? And if so, can you tell me your machine's software version number (find that in "About" in your settings menu)...... You've got me curious if there are some different versions now out that function differently in this respect.
If the hose is too heavy, you can get some Velcro wraps that have clips on them, and clip it to you PJs or sheet, or whatever weors for you - takes that weight away! I used Amazon and searched on CPAP hose clips. Glad I did - no more wrestling with the hose.
