hi ,Murray here, my LS8ACF ,has had 1.6a from day one when I bought it new, on rare occasion after a perfect alignment ,after a half an hour it would lose alignment , so I would realign, and it would be ok, does this happen to anyone else ,and do you think that redoing the installation of firmware may help. thanks

I do not think redoing the firmware would make a change.

If you have not done so recently, try training the drives.

There will be slight changes in gear behavior as time passes and retraining the drives helps this.

Holler back if that does not stop the problem and we can scratch our heads a little more.

Possible things that can cause it to loose its alignment. Low or weak batteries GPS loosing its fix.if around a lot of metal the GPS will give you funny reads and get lost.
I havnt used mine much lately due to clouds but have never had this happen to me. Let us know how you make out on it.
