The current behavior is that the Capture Image of Screen node determines the active screen when the composition starts, when the node receives an event, and when you change the input port using the editor; it doesn't automatically update it after that. We can modify this to a FR, and open it up for voting.

When we (Team Vuo) plan each release, we try to implement as many of the community's top-voted feature requests as we have time for.
