I don't quite understand you without a picture. I do love the Treadplate though. It sounds like your PC isn't displaying the HD500 Edit program correctly?
Try going here and there's a couple Mark V, Mark 2i settings using the Treadplate and Angel amp models.
I don't bother with EQ since there's four (Bass, Mid, Treble, Presence), "EQ controls" on the Pre-Amp, the "Amp Parameters", the "Cabinet Parameters" and about "12 mics" (counting the one's in the Fliptop) to get various sounds with.

Thanks Scotty... I am attaching a screenshot of the amp from HD500 Edit. You should be able to see clearly underneath each amp where it says Class, Topology and Mode. Im sorry if it is a noobish question, it has been a few years since I owned a Boogie (the rack mount Mark 2 studio) and I probably should know all of this.
The reason I was trying to get a good EQ is that I have the exact settings from John Petrucci and I was just trying to come as close as possible to exactly what he does... Knob Settings, Switches and EQ. I have graphics for that as well, but they are at home. Thanks for all of your help!!

...I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the switch settings are on the Treadplate amp in the HD500? I am pretty sure the right switch is for the Triode/Pentode mode. I am just unsure of the settings on the right. This panel is located in a separate frame below the typical amp settings...
those switches are used only if you are connected to a DT amp (are you?), otherwise they are useless and have no effect

I think the Uber will get you closer to the Mark IV/V tone than the Treadplate. You just need to pre-EQ it to suck out the muddy bass, and dial in a mid-range peak that makes it djent a little more.
Try a mid-focus EQ with low freq 22%, low Q 35%, high freq 90%, high Q 100%, gain 0% into a Line 6 Drive with drive 0%, bass 35%, mids 60-65%, treble 100%, output 100% into the Uber.
