SmartSDR RF Mtr not indicating output

I'm new to the 6400M as of a couple of weeks ago.  The last time I dove into Flex was with a 3000, so a little different.  I am seeing that when I am running FT-8,  I see little to no power output indication on the SmartSDR,  RF Pwr meter.  Looking at the DAX TX stream - it appears to be in the correct level, and my outboard watt meter is showing correctly.  Am I totally missing something here - which I am sure I have?  I would expect to see the SmartSDR output meter reading the same as DAX and my outboard meter.  Suggestions?

    The fact that your seeing output on the external meter but not the internal Flex meter would likely indicate a hardware defect.  In TUNE do you see a similar situation ( normal output on the external but  no indication on the internal flex meter ) ?  You may need to open a Helpdesk ticket.
