Changing Focus Screen in D100 (follow-up)

Hi,

Got my split screen Beattie screen today and popped it into my D100. All went well until I tried to focus. When the split screen appears focused, the green autofocus light doesn't come on. You take a picture and it is out of focus. If you focus until the autofocus light comes on, then it looks out of focus in the viewfinder, but the picture is sharp.

I tried replacing the Beattie screen without the black spacer that is between the screen and the prism, and this helped a bit, but didn't solve the out of focus issue. When the original screen is put back in, all is well. So it seems that my efforts show you can replace the screen with a split screen, but the focus using the split screen doesn't match the autofocus light (which is correct). Bah!......perhaps Joseph is having better luck than me.
