s9 without humidifier?
Been searching the archives, but no luck. I use a Resmed S9, and want to try it without the humidifier. How do i do this? Obviously i need something?

You disconnect the humidifier from the blower unit and hook the hose to the air outlet that is on the side of the blower unit. This air outlet is usually hooked into the humidifier unit, which is why you don't see it when the blower and humidifier are hooked together.

Once you remove the water tank, push the the release button (black button) to separate the humidifier from the machine and connect the hose (not climate line) directly in the machine

Yeah I struggled, hot or cold without the humidifier.

Though, i am using the slime line hose it is showing humidity rather than when I use the winter hose, it shows me the temperature which is set at 26 degree but with humidity it is currently set at 3. What is the prefer choice?

Boar - The Climate Line hose actually has a heater built right in to the hose and this is what you set the temperature for. It is supposed to help prevent rain out issues along with heating the air that YOU breath in. As far as what is the preferred setting for temp and humidity, that all depends on your personal preferences and how you want to set them for your comfort. I use my climate line all the time and I have my machine set for 72f with humidity at 4. Again, this is what I like and most likely it would be too cold for others.

I find heated air oppressive especially when I initially turn on the device. It feels like I am in the jungle with an octopus on my face. Cool air seems like a mountain breeze. Yes, I live in my head.

I am using the humidifier on the S9 but do not turn on the preheat feature. Can anyone tell me why the screen turns orange when the S9 is started. I suspect that is the heat feature so I push the knob down to turn it back to blue/white. Am I right?

H5i has the orange light when it's warming and the blue lights when not
