Flash to Pass feature on FX-R retrofit?

Not sure if this has been brought up or covered before. I did a search and found no results.
Over the weekend I did a FX-R retrofit on my pre-facelift sedan. Original lights were halogen Bosch AL.
The kit that I got from TRS came with a splitter cable for the high-beams. One end goes to the original high beam, the other to the projector shutter.
When l pull or push my high-beam stalk, both the inner high-beam comes on and the shutter flips up, regardless of whether the low-beams are on or not.
My question is: Is there a way to isolate them so that oem high beams only work as the "flash to pass" feature and the projector shutter acts as the actual high-beam?

Not really necessary. All the splitter does is activate the shield, it does not send power to the ballasts. If you drive with the HID low beams on during the daytime then the flash to pass will activate the halogen high beams and the HID high beams.
