The hiss like air being let out of a tire and the small delay in functionality is NOT with the JTV, it's ALWYS been with the Vetta. Everything you've mentioned from the thump when powered off (most all Line 6 amps do this to some degree) and the hiss when disconnecting the VDI cable is perfectly "normal" for this gear. nothing wrong, just how it works and nothing you can do about it except to make sure you turn off the amp, turn "off" the speakers on the output page. Turning the amp off is the smiplest way to work this, or you can also put the amp into tuner mode which also prevents that hissing from happening.
These are 100% correct answers and after using a Vetta combo since 2003, and with a Variax since 2006, I know there are no other options other than what Ive listed. I'm not a wise-guy or a smart-a$$, but in this case I DO know exactly what I'm typing about.

I was having the same issue with my Vetta and a JTV69, the guitar was exchanged for a new one and everything now works fine.
I tried new cables, reloading the amps firmware and nothing would stop the amp cutting out every 3 seconds. The guitar also worked fine with a pod HD500 sio I did not think it was a guitar issue.
I would try a different JTV.
Im sure the guitar is faulty.

Well - now you have two differeing situations that have given very different results. I can only guess for you now is to try either my suggestion or brushfo149's suggestion. Which ever suggestion is eaiset for you to try, then you'll have your specific solution to your situation.
I still think you should try using the 1/4" cable from the guitar into the amp and see if the guitar or the amp does anything faulty. That would certainly give you the answer to if it's just the VDI connection or not.
Best of luck and take care,

+1 to MerlinFL.
To verify how the JTV VDI jack is functioning, I would suggest trying it with a POD that supports a variax connection: POD XT Live, POD X3 Live, or POD HD500. From here you can see how the VDI works, see if it cuts out consistently as is does with the Vetta. If it does then the problem could be with the guitar not the amp.

I have just read your link about the Vetta 2 and the JTV59 variax.
I had lots of problems getting my JTV59 and my vetta to work together, tried everything, took me weeks.
Got a brand new VDI lead, even though the VDI lead i had was brand new and guess what, everything worked 100%
So mate if your still having problems, just try buying a new VDI lead ( i know there £25, but it might work)
