No Servospeed With SSC32

I discovered something tonight, while using the "servospeed" in a script.  I have a servo sonnected to D0. Got the servo to move fast or slow using servospeed just fine per the instructions. Then, with a SSC32 controller, and the same servo now connected to V0, the servo moves at one speed only, The servospeed command has no effect either way. So...

Adding Phrases, How Many?

So I got a weird issue, maybe.

Continues Read Of Ir Sensor

That's my issue, why it displays the values twice...
