Track number of current device

    Sep 02 2010 | 10:58 am
    Hi, this seems easy but I can't find a solution:
    How do you ask the lom to give me the track number (or name) where a m4l device currently sits in? I don't want this to be done with the "view selected_track" but in the background.
    For example: I would have a device that only prints the track number on startup. I have 8 tracks and drag the device on each of them. On startup it would say:
    print: hi i am track 1 print: hi i am track 2 ... print: hi i am track n
    much obliged for any help stephen
