Hardware reset. The hardware reset has taken care of various issues. At first I was concerned with riliability because I had instances of worse behaviour than what your've experienced. As soon as I discovered the hardware reset, I started to feel very comfortable in regards to reliability concerns. You have to caliberate the Pedal after you perform a hardware reset andt that's the only nuisance. My problems came up while editiing through PC edit program and never through the PODs control paner or user interface, but my faith is in the hardware reset feature that obviously the designers implimented to catch, hopefully, all kinds of weirdness.

Ok, thanks man.
Two more questions:
1) Will the hardware reset erase all my settings?
2) I haven't done any updates on this unit either and I just read that there was a new update a little while ago with new amps etc.... if I update to that will that also erase any saved settings?
Thanks again for responding to my post.

OK, lets sort this out.
- Updating the firmware (using Line 6 Monkey) will overwrite your presets if you opt to do so during the installation process. It will ask you whether you want to.
- A global settings reset (which I think people mean when they say 'hardware reset' here will not overwrite your presets but will overwrite your system settings and playlist names. Note that, even though the playlist names change, the contents of the playlist do not.
Rule one. If in doubt, use HD Edit on your PC to backup all of your presents (aka patches) BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE!. It only takes a minute to fix your system settings but patches are hard to reproduce so the five minutes it takes to back up is well invested.
Details cut and paste ....
Global settings reset: hold down the 'left' button on the directional keypad and power up the Pod. This does a global settings reset and can help. It is also useful if the preset you were working with was corrupt as it jumps you back to patch 1A. If you use this, you will need to check your global settings to make sure they are how you want them. You will also need to recalibrate your expression pedal (details here --> http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2223). None of your homemade presets will be lost but your setlist names will be renamed to the default names.
If the global reset does not clear it then you can try a safe mode reset. This time be ready with your PC and USB cable. Now hold down the 'right' button on the directional keypad and power up the pod. Connect the USB cable and use Line 6 Monkey to flash-update the firmware on the POD. Make sure you choose not to overwrite exisiting presets.
As a final thing, if the previous thing fails, repeat the previous process but this time hold down the 'down' button on the directional keypad and power up the pod.. This is a deeper level of safe mode.
In each case:
1) Power off
2) Hold down the button and then ...
3) Power on
4) wait a few seconds then release the button
