Duane, thanks for your prompt reply. Well, after I sent my message, I
upgraded from 2.055 to 2.056. The problem still exists, but it appears
to be related to the Main tuning knob; it works fine when I use the
knob on the remote pod. The contrast setting still remained at about
35%. I guess there's something wrong with the (optical?) encoder for
the tuning knob.
