APs, the mount very rarely GETS lost (well as long as it's leftalone
and manipulated via the HBX or computer).
Perhaps someone can confirm something I was told about the Paramount:
that if you want to control it remotely you are required under some
license terms of Bisque to use only their software to do so.
It didn't make any sense to me to have such a policy as a user, but I
can see why a vendor would try to get away with something like that
if they can. I just don't know if it is true or not.
I have two AP1200GTOs that are serving me very well so I am not
especially interested in a Paramount, but would like to know what
part of that rumor, if any, is true.
