Looks like I am not alone.

No I guess we are in this one together.
It seems like the HD500 somehow losses the detection of the external pedal when changing patches. Totally annoying and if this is how it is going to work, I wasted money on a Mission pedal as it is useless this way with two pedals. I was better off using ONLY the on- board pedal.
The way I see it, this issue is quite easy to replicate.

I posted this in response to ReverendLove's orginal post that he link you to above:
I tested this using ReverendLove's recipe that he provided in his original post. I used a POD HD500 v1.40 and POD HD500 Edit 1.06 with the Line 6 EX-1 expression pedal. I connected the expression pedal to the POD, powered the POD on, then connected directly to the USB port on the Windows XP computer.
POD HD500 Edit received my presets, at that point, I navigated to the Best OF HD presets 1A One Coil Brit. I loaded them and checked to see which pedal was assigned to EXP 1 and 2. The on board expression pedal was assigned to EXP-1 and the external EX-1 was assigned to EXP-2, they worked just fine to sweep the full range of the wah or volume models assigned to them. I switched to 2A Jimi Got Gyped, and same results on board expression controlled EXP-1 and external EX-1 controlled EXP-2, full sweep works just fine.
Prior to testing this I performed a Global Settings reset by holding down the left arrow key while powering on the POD HD500. I then performed a expression pedal calibration by powering up the POD HD500 while holding down the right arrow key and following the instructions available at the link below:
