Missed alot of action as I was away for the weekend. The following is
what I intended to reply with before I caught up on the rest of this
thread. I'll try some of the other suggestions in the thread and see if
I can solve it.

If that's what you meant by "not installed in the same place", then I'm

However, if there's any more info I could give you about the

help you track down the problem as much as I can.
