Customer Question

On a RTH6500 thermostat in programming,where the temp is displayed ,heat or cool is displayed and a statement below says to be sure this is setas you want.I find no way to change this in the couple of places it sholud change. How do I change it or is it not necessary ? Also after I program the full week then come back and go through it again,some of the settings are different than what I set.Is there something wrong with the device,or have i missed something in the programming directions??
