49-9er problems

I think I'm going nuts. I looked at the diodes in the 40-9er. There is
a dark band which I believe indicates negative. I installed them with
the black band lining up with the band on the circuit board. I was
testing the diode with my ohm meter (at 1.5 volts). when I place the
neg. lead of the vom on the lead nearest the black band I get no
conducting. But when I put the positive lead there it conducts. Could I
have the diodes in backwards? I am interested to find out how others
with Rev. B boards have installed the diodes. Thanks.
