Default Pitch Changes on Throttle Hold on 8U

Hello,
I am trying to set up to do auto rotations with the throttle hold switch like the book. I really want to do it in normal mode (not Idle1 or 2) due to the way the govenor is set up and the pitch curves I have (see set up below). I get pitch movement when i toggle the hold switch no matter what mode I am in and can't figure out why. It looks like it goes to something like idle 1 or 2 curves but:
in idle 1 or 2 mode the pitch does not change at 100% up or down as throttle hold is toggled. It only moves between these points and always negative going to hold?Why?

What I really want is throttle hold to go to the normal pitch curve (or let me stay in it while its selected) so I get -4 pitch as a minimum) and so govenor knows to be disabled.

Please help.

Additional Info-8U super radio
Throttle curve. I use a GV-1 that operates on stick position in Normal, runs 1550 in idle1 and 1700 in idle 2. This works great.

Normal pitch curve is -4 degrees to 11
Idle 1 and 2 are -11 to 11

I have no hover pitch adjustment in knob or trims set

Use a HH 401 gyro - works great also

Adjust your Throttle Hold Pitch Curve to match the numbers on your Normal Pitch Curve. TH Hold has it's own unique Pitch Curve.
