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.
