    First, thank you very much for this great software project. I am using Hyperion fr a few years already and it is really great!

    A few days I go I updated to Hyperion-NG.
    Now I have some questions, as it seems that there is some functionality missing, which I was using with the old Hyperion.

    My setup consists of a USB grabber which has two different kind of inputs: 1) Composte and 2) S-Video.
    The Composite input is needed for my media boxes and the S-Video input is needed for my TV (using a SCART adapter).
    With the new Hyperion-NG Alpha 7 you have implemented the "Input" setting for USB Grabbers again which is great.

    But now there is one usability problem.
    With the old Hyperion I could switch between different config files (json).
    For example like that:
    --> I have a shortcut for that script on my TV remote

    sudo killall hyperiond
    sleep 1
    /usr/share/hyperion/bin/hyperiond /etc/hyperion/hyperion.Scart.config.json
    Then when I switch back to one of my media boxes I use:
    sudo killall hyperiond
    sleep 1
    /usr/share/hyperion/bin/hyperiond /etc/hyperion/hyperion.config.json
    There are different kind of settings for the USB grabber inside this file:
    - input
    - crop settings
    - color calibcication (this is not priority though)

    Can I implement the same behaviour with Hyperion-ng?

    Thank you very much in advance!
