Thanks for the reply Carl.
Well it works MUCH better with Version 2 of the firmware. So you may well be
right. I loaded Version 2.063Xg and did a RAM CLEAR and followed that with a
Master Reset and it seems to function quite nicely with the SP OFF!
Others seem to NOT have the same problem running 1.373b5 that I do? So I guess
I'll live with it and just wait until the next new and improved version 2.xxx
hits the Ten-Tec site.
Again, thanks for the reply.

What happens with version 2 Orion firmware? I think the entire path for
monitor is in the firmware. This could be a bug back in 1.373b5.
