I have had this problem off and on since 2004. I found that if I hit the
pins of the RIT/XIT encoder with some heat and a bit of solder, it cures the
problem. But many times it has shown up again a year or so later.

Subject: [TenTec] Orion 565 RIT XIT stopped working from front panel but
works ok from POD.
Remember a number of comments on this subject. Mine stopped working...
sometimes it will bounce between 0 and -10 but that is about all. I can
set up the remote POD for RIT XIT and it works great from there....
pressing the front panel RIT control causes the proper clear. The RIT
XIT buttons come on as they should. Running 2.062a. Reloaded firmware
numerous times. Did RAM and Hardware RESETS numerous times as well.
For those who have experienced this.... what were your resolutions?
