Low voltage reported on V1 (6.8V) but no evidence of actual low voltage?

I'm seeing a V1: 6.8v (but V2 is 11.9V).  I do have two power supplies, so I pulled out the multi-meter, but both supplies are right around 11.9 volts output under load when the display is running.   [And the input ports on the F16V3 also show 11.9 volts on both the left and right sides...]  And the 1-8 port lights are just as bright as the 9-16 port lights, so no evidence that my 12v pixels are seeing a reduced voltage.

The player appears to be working just fine otherwise.   I'm suspicious that the voltage sensor itself may be off? 

Any other diagnostics I should be doing?

Thanks,
Jay

That is a bug that had been around for a while. Just ignore it

I agree with Poporacer.  Known problem for a couple of years.  Stop looking at those numbers and just use your multimeter.  sigh
