I was just talking to a PCer via email and I said how i wanted to order a CTB-08 cuz i'm a beginner. He said that I might not get all the new functions. I was wondering if all the LOR2 capabilities will be availible on it when LOR2 comes out? What then is my next cheapest option?

Almost all my LOR controllers are CTB-08's. That said, if I were to do it from scratch, I wouldn't order them (CTB-08's), but rather, order one of the "D" products (e.g. CTB-08D, CTB-16D...) The main reason is that minor issues can be easilly fixed by LOR and issued as a downloadable firmware update for those controllers. With the CTB-08, you're basically stuck with the firmware burned in the processor, and the only way they could be upgraded is if LOR issued you new chips (which they're probably not likely to do unless there is a major problem or major shift in direction, due to the costs involved).

Just my opinion... The CTB-08 is a fine controller other than this issue.
