Not famliar with your rig but it sounds like it is working as intended. HOWEVER - you must ensure that VFO A is selected while receiving since SPLIT only causes a VFO swap on transmit (it does not determine which VFO is used for TX and RX). On the TS-590 I ensure that VFO A is selected for receive by use of the A/B button which swaps the active VFO. I'd assume there is a similar switch on your rig.
There are many traps for the unwary with ver 1.1 and I expect that later versions will include more robust protect for commmon user errors.
