Praise: Version 2.6 Improved my remote usability 4 to 1

I upgraded my 6700 from version 2.51 to version 2.6 while carefully flowing the upgrade steps on...
  •  Win 10x64 desktop (Local) (Backed up profiles here) (TeamViewer)
  •  My win 7x64 laptop (Travel Laptop)
  • Win 7x32 laptop (Work Laptop)
  • Maestro "B" (Used everywhere  with a travel router)
         All went smoothly....All done while out of town.
  • No loss of profiles after cold boot (per instructions,  NOT HARD RESET)
  • No loss of SmartLink setup.

  My remote setup is satellite internet at my shack with 600ms to 1800ms of latency.  Before the update it was marginal operation with the FPS and RATE turned all the way down and it was usable most of the time from most hotels.

After the update.....
  • No more disconnects...so far (Greatly reduced)
  • Broken panfall is now smooth and filled-in (Error correction now fills in gaps!!)
  • Broken audio is now smooth and un-broken by at least 4 to 1 over previous version
  • Marginal locations (Restaurants and hot-spots) that had broken audio when I connected are now usable!
   GREAT JOB Flex !!!!
