Direction of zoom with Bebob ZOE-DVXL

I've used a Bebob ZOE LANC controller for my Z1 for years, so when it acted up I sent it to 16X9 for repair. They couldn't repair it, so they sent me a new Bebob ZOE-DVXL.

I used it for the first time tonight. The good news is it worked, the bad news is the direction of the zooming is opposite what I've used for years with the old controller and with my controllers on my ENG lenses as well.

They didn't send me a manual with the new controller. Is there a way to reverse the zoom direction of the rocker? My old one, and all my other controllers, have telephoto to the right and wide to the left, the new ZOE-DVXL is currently telephoto to the left and wide to the right.

Thanks.

INVERT ZOOM DIRECTION
To invert the zoom direction on the ZOE, switch on the camera and push the "Focus" button while the camera is booting, until the yellow LED makes a short flash.
