Does your W-7 operating system recognize the usb connection when you plug the GX unit in? If not...you could try checking in Device Manager & verifying that there aren't any annoying little yellow warnings present in somewhere like USB Controllers and/or do a manual check for new devices either by right clicking on the parent tree in Dev Mgr & 'scan for hardware change' or just 'Add A Device' from Cont Pan>Hrdw&Sounds>Devices &Printers>Add A Device. The system will perform a re-scan to see if anything is newly connected.
Red light on the GX unit?

Hi - Apologies for the absence..,. I was on holiday.
I have not yet been successful with my GX installation. The light on it is green.
I have captured some screen dumps. I hope something screams out at you as being wrong!

Nice screenshots. Under Sound>Playback properties, your GX is flagged as the Default Communications Device. Try changing that to
just Default Device (properties>communications tab). The Microphone in Recording properties is set to 'ready' status as well (possibly due to Communications Device...or a mic device is plugged in). Might be causing a conflict. I don't believe it's necessary to disable Stereo Mix either.

Thanks GC that did help. Signal now is getting to the software BUT not out of the speakers! Nearly there I hope...
Please see attached file for screen shots.

this is normal: you need connecting the LINE OUT to your sound system to hear the GX output
if you wish using your PC speakers, connect this out to your PC soundcard's input, or, if they're separate powered speakers, plug your speakers directly into it

Thanks for the reply. I attached speakers and headphones to the line out, checked they work for system sounds, and then tried in POD Farm 2. I can use the tuner, see the LEDs going up when I play the guitar, etc.
Sadly there's no signal there. Sorry about that... any ideas?

as I see in the last screenshot on GX Installation.pptx, output signal shows as present in the Mixer part of PodFarm2
please check if the GX output is muted (or not selected) in the Windows mixer, I suspect this to be the reason

OK, there may be a misunderstanding. If I connect speakers to the line out/headphone on the GX then all's well. (But not the speakers on the computer.)
If that's normal behaviour then I'm fine.
Thanks for your help.
