The big reason this is going to be tricky is that when you hook up the DT-50 to the HD500 with L6 Link, the output mode will automatically change to Combo Front. This will change the tone in both tone paths even if you have no amp modeling in one. The one workaround would be to use the HD500's effects send as an output to your Marshall, but that might mean having to change your effects order. I just can't see a way right away that will make this setup work in a way you want it to.

I think Phil has probably hit on the best option here.
You run the cable from the FX Send on the Pod, to your pedal board then directly into the Marshall Input without returning to the POD. The Loop goes in channel B and the amp model in channel A.
It would mean thought that you have to run your ping pong before the split though so yeah, compromise on FX.

I was just hoping there was an option I missed.
I have not tried using the effects send as the output. I just assumed that it would give me the same result as what I described above using the effects loop to my analog effects and back into the pod, and one of the quarter inch outputs to the marshall.
I'll give that a try next time I have the chance. If I have any luck, I'll post about it here.

Using the effects send seems to yield the best results for what I'm trying to do. Thanks for the tip.
