You assign a preset to an input and then whenever you choose that input, all the settings associated with that preset are applied.
The preset contains things like your choices on the listening modes page, your speaker settings, Dirac preferences, front panel display etc.
So I have a preset that I assign to the input for my video source that specifies 5.1 channels, Dirac on slot 2, Dolby Digital decoded as surround, DTS decoded as surround, lipsync settings, tone control settings, display to show video resolution and audio codec etc.
And I have a preset assigned to the input I use for music, which is my BluOS input, that specifies 2.1channels, Dirac slot 1, all listening modes to stereo, tone defeat on, display shows something different than above (I've don't recall right now).
It took me some time to wrap my head around it too, but once you get it, it's a simple concept and quite handy.
