Unsolved Blended TFR

I was in TFR Blended mode enroute to STP 8 in A-G mode with AGM-65G. Shortly before reaching STP 8 I changed to NAV mode. The video shows the change at 0:05. But when I reached STP 8 the DED did not show an auto steerpoint change to STP 9.
- Fly an Air-Ground flight
- Set TFR to Normal, 500 feet and SCP to 450 feet
- Engage the AUTO TFR
- Set AUTO ROLL Select to STRG (blended mode)
- Shortly before reaching a STP change from A-G mode to NAV mode
According to the BMS-Training.pdf, p181, Engage AUTO TFR and let the aircraft descend to its SCP. A/P STRG SEL can be blended with TFR but exit A-G master mode if you want to enable auto steerpoint as it does not work (on purpose) in A-G mode. In my flight after I changed from A-G mode to NAV mode, I expected the STP to automatically change from 8 to 9. It didn’t.
Lets clear one thing up.
Blended mode is entered by placing the A/P switch to PITCH ALT HOLD or ATT HOLD while your are in MAN or ATF . In both cases, the STBY light illuminates. The Autopilot ROLL switch has nothing to do with blended mode, nor dose it influence automatic steerpoint selection in any way.
The STP number is not increasing automatically because you in manual steerpoint selection.
You will need to select the STPT page and dobber right to toggle between automatic or manual steerpoint selection. AUTO or MAN will be displayed on the STPT page. If AUTO is selected ,on the CNI page the letter A will be displayed adjacent to the steerpoint number.
AUTO STPT is inhibited while in AG mode.
Here is a video showing AUTO STPT selection, Blended mode, AP ROLL set to STRG and AG mode inhibiting AUTO -STPT

@Leech I had misunderstood Blended Mode. Thanks for making it clear what it is.
Now I’m still not sure when AUTO SPT is inhibited, even though you said: AUTO STPT is inhibited while in AG mode. And you provided a video.
Here is my video showing AUTO STPT selection, Blended mode, AP ROLL set to STRG and AG mode NOT INHIBITING AUTO -STPT. The change from STP 4 to STP 5 in A-G mode occurs at 0:35.
@jc1 Ok, you found a bug.
Auto steerpoint selection is inhibited while in AG mode ( CCRP delivery mode) as shown in my video.
In your video, you are in preplanned weapon delivery mode. Nevertheless The STP should have not incremented.

This auto steerpoint bug will have an effect on Training for AGM-65 Mavericks in TR_BMS_13/14 and for Inertially Aided Munitions, JSOW/JDAM in TR_BMS_15_IAM.
@jc1 It has been reported.
