Flex 6500 displays transverter IF on panadapter, not RF...Anyone else seen it?

Not new to transverters, and have set up my 6500 as per SSDR user guide, but for some reason when you slept the band (144 MHz), the panadapter displays IF frequencies, not RF. Only way to overcome it is to type the RF value in to a slice Rx. Using latest version of SSDR, no other problems obvious. Ideas please!?

    I think that is normal - I set up my kuhne 4m tvtr with my 6500 after some period on my 6300 and it puzzled me too second time round but after putting the correct rf freq in once it comes up as 70mhz each time now.

    Thanks for reply, Steve. Seems a bit odd, and no mention of that in SSDR...ho hum.. BTW like your profile pick - I'm just back from a week's sport climbing trip in Kalymnos

    Ross, thanks for your reply. I did that, and double checked...nothing wrong with the Xvtr tab settings.

    Its a defect ... same here .. whenever I set up a new transverter I just set the RF frequency first after opening the first slice. I think this has been open for a long time .. sure I read about this before

    Thanks, Simon. I did a search but didn't find anything....perhaps I didn't go back far enough. Given the prominence of transverter support in the 6000series, I hope it'll get sorted soon.
