OK, My computer is running the latest Line 6 software and the latest drivers for all my devices.
My devices consist of the PodXT Live, Variax 300 Electric and Variax 700 Acoustic.
I have a 64 bit installation of Windows 7 Professional.
I run my computer, Pod XTLive and TC-Helicon VoiceLive 2 through a mixer
into a power amp and then out to Speakers.
When I run audio from my computer, everything works fine.
When I connect the XT Live via USB, the audio out on the computer
changes from the computer's audio card to the audio of the XTLive.
When this happen, there is only output to the left speaker.
Both the XT audio and the computer audio route through the XT.
When I disconnect the right 1/4" cable from the output of the XT, both speakers
have output, but it is in mono.
This is what I would expect, but I don't understand why the Stereo isn't working.
When I switch the default audio device on the computer from the XT back
to the Audio card, everything goes back to normal (i.e. Stereo output from
I know the VoiceLive 2 has no effect, as it works normally in all cases.
And the XT Live has the same strange operation in both configurations.

Is your TC-H connect via USB?
Not sure how you have your xt connected to the mixer, when you unplug the R analog, you should not have the PODxt Live sounding thru both speakers. This part confuses me. For example, I have a basic mixer and have the L&R analog out of my PODxt and HD routed to 2 stereo strips. If I unplug the Left, I will hear only the Right channel, if I unplug the Right, I will hear only the Left channel. If you call up an exaggerated stereo delay and unplug the right and you hear mono thru bith speakers, can you tell oif it is the xt's L&R in mono, or is only the L or R?

Yes, the TC-H does connect via USB, but the XT Live acts the same way if the TC-H is connected or not.
My XT Live is connected to a stereo input on the mixer. L/R 1/4" inputs.
I seems that the mixer, when only receiving the left channel automatically switches to Mono through both speakers.
It doesn't matter which end of the Right side jack I remove (XT Live or Mixer end)
With a ping pong delay, It just plays mono through both speakers.
I've done a modified fix by using the headphone out to the line in on the computer.
This allows me to record in Stereo. It must be something to do with using the USB as a Playback device for the computer.
The Computer and the XT Live get confused when the XT Live is used as a playback device by the computer.
At Least I've narrowed it down some.

I've put the XTlive away for a bit and I am focusing on the VoiceLive with my variax acoustic 700.
I got tired of messing with it. I'll go back to it later.
Thanks for all your replies, I'll mark it answered.
