SmartSDR not showing power or SWR from Flex 6300

I have a Flex 6300, I've had it about a month now. As of this morning, SmartSDR is not showing any power output or SWR on key down. I've been using it for a lot of FT8 in the last 2-3 weeks, and it has been working fine. This morning, not so much.

I tried SmartSDR from 2 different windows machines, one running win 10, and the other win 11. On both machines, DAX rx is working fine, smartsdr shows recieved signals as well , but on transmit (or tune), while DAX shows output, Smart SDR shows nothing. As I'm not physically at the station most of the time, I do rely on seeing what is going on with regards to both SWR and power.

I thought I had **** something up on the machine I usually work from, however, my other Windows machine shows the same exact behavior. So, if I did it, at least I'm consistent.

Any ideas what might be going on? Seriously, as of last night, working fine, this morning, nada.

    Check your RF Power and Tune Pwr SLIDERS.

    I wonder if maybe the transmit antenna select (the red characters at the top of the flag) maybe got set to TXVR (transverter) by mistake?

    [just noticed I made the same mistake here and wondered why there was no RF OUT showing :-)]
