Newly installed SCT Tuner, now tranny slamming into gears

Just installed my SCT Livewire. Not real impressed with the instruction manual as it does not tell what each option means or is for, it just tells you what options you have. So unless you know alot about these programmers it is a waste of time to even offer these options. I changed the transmission shift from 0mph to 7mph, I have no idea what I did or what it meant. Now when it is a custom tune it is slamming into each gear at a slow speed. If I start around 20mph or more it shifts fine. When I change to pretune extreme it is still slamming into gear acting like it wants to come out of the last gear unless you get into the pedal. Very strange acting, any ideas or direction someone can give me?

-I believe that the 0 mph shift allows u to change when your trans shifts above the set point, whether its a custom tune or canned. i wouldn't change it on a custom tune. for example, 4 mph shift changes your trans to shift 4 mph later than programmed. At least this is what i gather from talking with sct. As far as the slamming into gear goes, my truck did the same thing when i would first change tunes. Try doing a trans relearn.

you can search to find a couple of different ways faster than i can type it. No other problems with my sct, tech support isn't the best but they are reachable and sometimes solve your problem. I had a stock file problem and they remote logged on to my computer and downloaded my stock file, corrected it and loaded it on my livewire while on the phone. They dont give you alot of info for the options on the livewire or live link online either.
