I do not sure about omni V but
1. The filters can be put either side, there is no differance.
2. If you put normall 217 in 217 place you have to compensate for
the filter loss by moving the gain jumper from low to high position...
In Omni VI there is jumper nearest the front panel nearby the filter.
Check it !
