Found a bug in beta 8.2.5056.1

Create TF engine. select any FFT size you like....8k, 16k, MTW....This bug does not seem to be dependent upon TF FFT size/selection, this bug seems to be contained within the live IR function.

Have Live IR displayed. In TF Options...Set live IR to 8, 16, or 32k, but use 16 averages. The 16 averages is the important part.

Start TF engine. Note stability of Live IR.

Now disable Live IR.

Re-Enable Live IR

Notice how Live IR now appears to be set to 0 averages.

Open TF options.....notice Live IR averages is still selected as 16, even though the Live IR appears to be running with Averages set to "none", as indicated by it's obvious instability.

Now, in TF options, set Live IR averages to "none", hit Apply. Notice that Live IR stability remains as you would expect it to be with averages set to "none"

Now, re-select 16 Averages.... hit Apply...Notice that NOW Live IR stabilizes as you would expect with 16 Averages.
