Default is it possible to switch off the test tone on the Aurora?

Hi, is it possible to switch off the test tone on the Aurora? I would like to play some test card music through my set and wondered whether it can be shut off with the test card still on screen for music to be played through,
thanks

I think it does shut off when fed with a signal.

The tone only switches off when fed video. So feeding audio only will produce audio and tone together. I think there are internal dip switches, if one of these shuts off the tone I can't remember.

The user manual can be found here.

I says that the internal tone is switched off in position 2
