The sweep on the Orion has been slow since about 1.362 (or there abouts)
update. I have mentioned this to TT a few times but I think that getting it to
read real-time is on the back burner. But who knows, maybe this next update
will improve it.
Lately I have been using the N4py control program sweep. Being able to click on
a signal peak and instantly being transferred there is cool to say the least.
So you might want to look at getting the n4py control program for your Orion.
