Huh? Doesn't that stop the capture? 

Sorry I was not clear.   

I have the revgrabber window in a substack.  This way I can hide the preview
of the recording by hiding and showing the substack.  This does not affect
the capture.

If I am not capturing, just previewing and I want to stop the preview I
close revvideograbber window and close the substack.

I can save the audio settings with the revvideograbsettings command but like
you said the video settings that have been set are changed as well so I had
to take the audio settings feature out.
