Getting to grips with profiles and digital modes ?

I should have this figured out by now, but i still have issues and probably too stupid.  With PowerSDR and ye olde Flex 1500 or 3000 I had no difficulties setting a clean digital signal. With SmartSDR and DAX I am missing the obvious, I think. I asked the questions when I received the 6300 a few months ago but have not "got it" yet.  The basic question comes down to why with some of the profiles I have created (in attempts to solve some issues), some digital mode transmissions see a full "level" being indicated in the level/compression area and at the same time a full or good amout of RF Power being transmitted.  While other profiles see a full "level" indicated but ZERO  RF Power generated ? I don't see any settings differences between my various profiles, but some get zero RF and others, plenty.  I wonder what makes that difference.  Also, in trying to improve some profile settings that do actually produce an RF level , I notice I have the Mic Profile set with a "DX" setting.  I figure a NOR setting would be better for digital modes but can't change the "DX position to "NOR. Is there NO way to change a Mic profile once saved, you have to start from scratch?

Have you check your low and high cut settings when no RF is indicated?
