Can you folks take a quick peek at my schematic for Classic Rev6?

Sorry, yep, SV1 (not SV2). And correct, on SV6 I mean "pins 2 and 3" it's just they are labeled "1" and "2" in the "LEDs" description section of the manual (page 5).

I just wired it up as you suggested and it seems to be working great. So glad I got all this info. Thanks again!

You're welcome. Sounds like you are good to go.

If the reason you were resistant to the idea of the extra resistors (see what i did there? Heh) is that you don't want resistors cluttering up the visible side of your display board, keep in mind that you can mount them on the "wrong" (back) side of the board instead.

Look into it later when the dust is clearing off the crater.

Oh, also, I put 120K resistors in my sketch because I had to pick something. If you have info for the particular neons you are using - specifically maintaining voltage and current - it might be worthwhile to do the math to select the optimal resistor values. If the resistance is too low it will still work but bulb life will be shortened.
