Worth checking the jumper settings. Since this is my master back end and
I work during the day, it may be a few days before I have time to take
it down, disconnect all the cables, and open it up to check. I didn't
want to do that until I actually knew what I was going to be looking

Yes, that's what I would have thought. But there is obviously something
going on here that is beyond my limited understanding of how the
hardware works.

Thanks for the tips.
