Lightroom: Auto Import - Same As Previous

Because LR tether does not support Live View and other advanced functions available in 3rdf party offerings, I often need to use a watched folder and auto import.

However, this does not allow the Same As Previous develop settings so useful in tethering.

This leaves me caught between a rock and a hard place, in that the built in tethering isn't up to snuff, but neither is the auto import to support 3rd party tethering.

I use an EyeFi card to send basic jpegs to my laptop during shoots and workshops - and then the auto import to get them into Lightroom. Same As Previous is very useful - especially if the shots will ultimately be mono - the attendees can get a preview of what they will look like. I don't like tethering though - the cable gets in the way.
