Lightroom: Ability to shoot and edit while tethered

I like tethered shooting but we do some high volume shoots every year where one person is shooting and another person is editing files to print. When you are tethered the incoming image always interrupts the person that is trying to edit images.
We had to stop using Lightroom. Right now we use the Canon utility, Bridge and Photoshop as we can prevent the interruptions with this combination.

Turning off auto advance selection seems to fix the problem.

I thought I wrote tether to not auto-advance if you're not already looking at the most recent capture. So, for example, if you've already shot files 1-10, if you were looking at #10 and shot another image, it would auto-advance to #11. But if you were looking at #9, it would just tack #11 onto the end and not change your view. If this isn't working for you, let me know.

I tried it and it doesn't auto advance when shooting tethered. I think some of my issues occurred when I was using the Canon Utility with auto import. I'll doing more testing with tethering shooting in the studio on Sunday.
Thanks for the fast response. You are much faster than our own engineering dept.
