Venus OS on Pi3 Issue with DC power reading.

Evening guys,

So ive just run all my victron items into my Venus Pi and working well apart from one strange thing. When i turn on the inverter in idle the DC load spikes up to 70-90w use even though the BMV-712 still shows minimal draw of max 30w, if i turn off the inverter the use drops down to 11w on the BMV and also tallys correctly with whats shown on the Venus Os and VRM website. Funnily enough if i load the inverter the value also corrects itself, its just when its idle or not up to much.

Anyone run into this issue before and how do i sort it out its a little annoying, im guessing its coding of the site? because surely that should just show the BMV use minus the calculated use of the inverter?
