Rel 2.7.5 High SWR on PowerGenius

After updating my Flex 6500 to 2.7.5 the antenna SWR on the attached PowerGenius went from 1.4 to 3.7. Both the 6500 an my PowerGenius were power cycled. I downgraded the 6500 to 2.7.3 and the SWR immediately went back to 1.4. No other changes were made. The PowerGenius is at FW 3.5.23

Any advice is welcome. Thanks, Ron K2RAS

    Well I upgraded back to 2.7.5 and now everything is working fine. Go figure... Just FYI if anyone has a similar problem.

    I had the same thing on my 6500 on 10mhz, I use a johnson matchbox for the open line fed doublet. Pegged right out to pegged over 3:1. It was like the antenna in the rig was improperly selecting. And I HAD also rebooted everything I thought. I didn't down grade. I shut everything down, cycled the power on the radio. Booted the radio back up from a cold start. Restarted the computer and everything was perfect.

    You tell me what that was, ha.... Hardly a HOT FIX, or HOT Patch. Those terms were for systems that can't be shut down and the fix integrates itself. Well its behaving just fine. I dont do remote so all is well.
