hi
you see only 19 slot because probably you have configured the slot 20 as mailslot, that is used to ad catridges witout need to run again a discovery.
for second question, I don't know software products, but I can immagine that the catalog performed the first time read all the catridges to record all is on the tapes, but not sure about this,
bye

i believe there is a setting in bent to do a quick inventory" -- this means it wont need to mount and read each tape, only the barcode label.
