Tuner Genius Question

Options

My Tuner Genius arrived about a week ago and so far works well. But my question is How can I fine tune the tuner with my Power Genius inline. When I auto tune the tuner genius it gives me a very low SWR as it should. But it puts my Power Genius in Standby while tuning. When I operate and my amp is online the SWR is over a 2:1. I tried fine tuning the tuner but it prevents me from manually tuning it while the amp is online even with low power. I preformed the same test into a dummy load with the same results. Has anyone else had the same problem?

    if I understand correctly your SWR is fine at low power but not at high power?? If that is correct then you should check your antenna for a short or failing coax or trap.
