I kind of like 2.054, it works pretty darn good for my purposes, and seems
to be crisper and sharper in operation. I like what they have done so far.
and since it is listed as a beta version, I am going out on a limb here and
think they will be bringing out a newer update sooner or later..
Bye the way,, it wasn't 3 months ago that there was a thread here asking for
Ten Tec to let us be beta testers and give input on the software, so here is
the chance. folks they listened to us and gave us a beta version, so lets
treat it as such, or if you don't want to play, re install 1.732.. it is
listed as Beta 2.054..

V2.0 has been a bear for Gary and company, with many hours and weekends
spent trying to get it right. But they seem to be caught in a loop in which
when one thing gets fixed three other problem pop up, and they seem to be
unable to escape the loop or trap they are caught in.
This still leads me to wonder if V2.0 if the right way to go, and that
perhaps revisiting 1.xxx with new insight and direction could pay off in a
more stable firmware without losing the fine functions of the Orion we now
enjoy. AS it is, the new firmware is unusable, except for a small group of
guys who operate the rig in a narrow and confined manner.
Based on what I have heard and experienced, I really don't expect to see
any rapid resoution of the multiple problems associated with 2.0. It will
be more of the same in the future unless some new approach is taken to
correct perhaps what could be called "inherent flaws" in the 2.0 core setup,
which weaken or nullify the fine features we enjoy in the 1.xxx versions.
