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.

73, Joe
