Options Trading

Can someone please help me with understanding Quicken's automatic transaction entries for buying and selling options ( Put & Calls) in an investing account. Quicken never matches my Brokerage firm's downloads regarding "securities value". When I go to investing tab and open the account transaction list and view the "securities Value" at the bottom of the window, it is always below my securities value from the Brokerage firm, but the cash balance is always correct. When I view the account "value" window ( investing tab then "value" dropdown, and find my actual stock holdings values, they match up exactly to my brokerage firm's numbers. It's all the puts and calls entries in the market value and cost columns that is throwing things off I am convinced.
Sorry for the windy question, but perhaps someone out there has experienced the issue and found the answer. Tech support does not seem to know!
