Power readings in DIGU on PGXL not showing correctly. It that normal?

Lately, I noticed that when in DIGU mode the PGXL display shows only 1 watt out even though other physical meter show 380 watts. Is that normal or have I set something up incorrectly? When in USB mode everything looks correct.

    I have not seen that on my PG XL.

    What is the radio TX bandwidth set to?

    what version firmware in amp?

    Does the Windows app show same low power?

    What if you use the tune button? (Steady carrier).

    Yes, Win app shows about the same (hard to tell exactly)
    Tune button with amp on show about right power reading on both.

    ALL Meter readings are Bogus in 3.6.23 It should have never been released... Use an external Watt Meter.

    When I transmit a carrier on the PGXL, I'm getting 960 watts output indicated on my LP-700, and 323 watts on the PGXL Utility.

    This disparity continues no matter the mode, but am using this as an example using a carrier to avoid the differences between PEP vs. Average power measurements.

    I opened a ticket on this today, and hopefully everyone else experiencing similar issues will do the same.
