I was asked to comment on the above exchange. Indeed, I have seen URSA analog 
Renaissance code exhibit this problem with the TLC doing an edit. Andy Toms is correct 
that the current work around is to do a <CMD> <PLAY> key sequence after the TLC has 
rolled the SOURCE deck. I was told by our software department that the current URSA code 
with the new Noise Reducer mode implemented may fix this problem. Looking over the 
latest exchanges with Andy and the factory customer servcice department, it appears that 
this is not the case. Maybe if Andy Toms is reading this, he could comment? 
If anyone has any further questions or comments, I would be happy to respond as best I 
can from this end.
