Do I need to press the trigger button first before receiving SMPTE time code for the script to start?

In 18R2 Controller firmware version 5.0.3 (alpha release), the user is not required to start the script as the receiving of the SMPTE timecode is enough to start the script. In 18R2 firmware version 5.1 or higher, the user must start the script by pressing the trigger button on the trigger channel. At this point, PAU will display on the 18R2, and the script will begin once the SMTPE timecode is received.
