I haven't used SPDIF for a while as my central heating also causes sync loss, but I remember this being an issue for me as well. I had the same issue with the X3 too. Not sure I ever got an answer on it!

It seems that on the HD500 the tuner function stops other things as well such as the looper. I think it's the nature of the beast as it stands unfortunately. Your best bet is probably to use an external tuner.

Ya. I thought of using an external tuner but I think I would probably just switch back to using 1/4" rather than have to worry about batteries or another power cord.
I would think they could fix this in a software update. What do you think? How can I make such a request to Line 6?

This sounds like it would make a good feature request. Here is a link to our Customer Feedback page:

I don't know if the problem has been solved and i have no solution (not yet) but what i can add that problem is the same as you but alos occured even if I am not using tuner or loop: just wait few time and the syncro stop for 2 seconds and then come back, and it can happen during playing but not so often, not very worry but enough to be uncomfortable with spdif.
