Flashpoint R2 Pro TTL Transmitter + SB-800

I am playing around with a new Flashpoint R2 Pro TTL Transmitter on my Nikon D800 hot show and a Nikon SB-800 on a Flashpoint R2 receiver. I have the receiver set to Chanel 1 + Group A. On the R2 Pro TTL Transmitter I set Group A to Manual to any of the manual settings and the remote flash triggers just fine at whatever manual power I set 1/1 - 1/128 power and so on,

The issue comes when I set the mode on the Flashpoint R2 Pro TTL Transmitter Channel A to TTL (0.0 compensation and trigger the SB-800 (the SB-800 shows it is in TTL/BL mode), I get only minimal flash/severe under exposure (Camera is in manual mode 1/60 F2.8)  no matter what I do. Does the SB-800 only work in manual mode with the Flashpoint R2 Pro TTL Transmitter and R2 receiver, or am I doing something wrong?

Regards,
MIke
