sounds to me like you've got the MoreLoops parameter set to 3. This divides
the memory among 3 loops (or whatever its set to), so when you power up the
display shows the time available in Loop 1. (198/3=66)
Either go to the MoreLoops parameter and set it back to 1, or maybe just
reset all the parameters to start completely fresh. Do that by holding the
parameter button at power up, and keep holding it until the echoplex gets
through with its bootup sequence.
