Calibration issue in PI with PEDESTAL not carrying forward

I am hoping someone more familiar with PI then myself can help as I have run into an issue with calibration when the raw files have a PEDESTAL value of -100 recorded in the FITS header. This is specific to the brand of camera being used and I cannot get PI to co-operate to get rid of it.

I have tried setting ImageClaibration's Pedestal Mode field to 'Literal Value' and then Pedestal Value (DN) field to '0' (zero). This made no difference so I tried replacing '0' (zero) with 100 and again no difference.

The PEDESTAL value is recorded to all the raw files (bias, darks, and lights).

Any insight would be appreciated as so far I cant get it to play nicely.
