I haven't yet got my JTV, and don't have a PODx3L, but from what I've read elsewhere on here the X3 has Dual Tone capabilities, and that's exactly what you're getting - the signal from the mags and the Variax (Alt Tune) tones are both going down the VDI cable. You need to adjust the POD inputs so that you're only hearing the Variax tone, but as I'm not familiar with the X3, that's the limit of my competence, so you'll need to work this out yourself! (or wait for someone else to chime in).

Make sure that you have got the latest firmware on your X3L - this includes the support for the JTV and the ability to have mags or models or both.
Once you have latest firmware on the X3L, connect your Variax to the X3L with the VDI cable, then select the input for the Tone you are working with. Scroll through the options - you will see that you now have Variax Ch1 and Variax Ch2 as additional options along with Variax.
If you choose Variax for your input option then you will get BOTH mags and modelled sounds.
If you choose Variax Ch1 you will just get the model sound.
If you choose Variax Ch2 you will just get the mag pickups sound.
You will need to set the appropriate input selection for both Tone1 and Tone2 for your patch you are working with.
It sounds like you have got Variax selected as input - so you are hearing both the modelled sound (with the alternate tuning) and the mag pickup sound (with the standard tuning). Select just Variax Ch1 to hear just the modelled sound with the altered tuning.
That should fix it for you.
