Repeater offsets not working with 70CM xverter port

The repeater offset function is not working with the transverter port when working at 70CM. I have narrowed the failure to the Flex SmartSDR software 2.49 not the radio, as the iPad and iPhone software works fine with the hardware configuration noted below.
As an example: local FM repeater on 442.725 with a + shift (5MHz). If you set these parameters in the software, no shift takes place in transmit. However if you also select “REV” which now changes the displayed frequency from the repeater output to the input frequency. One can transmit and have the repeater hear and relay the transmission. Thus verify the transmission parameters are correct. Simplex works as expected as well.
Interesting note, the same configuration works fine with the transverter port when used at 2M (2meter amp, not actually a transverter).
System configuration, Windows 7 (64bit), Flex 6700,
Transverter 432-28HP (new). (IF out to Receive port B, TXIF to transverter port, UHF Antenna port to antenna (SWR 1.2-1.4 for 430-450MHZ), PTT RCA port the RCA port 3 on the Flex.
I have not tried previous versions yet.
