are you sure, that you did not have the live out set to "mute" in the second attempt? You can check this by pushing "outputs" on your POD, when having selected the right patch.
Regarding the first attempt: I only know the Blackstar HT-Club 40, as I own one, but I don't know the HT-5. So, does the HT-5 have a master volume pot? If yes, then you should be able to control the volume with that master volume, because it should affect the power amp's volume.

Actually I kinda fixed it but forgot to came here and report upon it!
In short it was all right but when connecting the POD in front of the amp, I didn't raise the volume high enough to hear it. It can sound a bit ridiculous but I normally have the master volume on the POD set around 10 o'clock and that's enough to blast my pair of speakers or the headphones.. but when connected to the amp I basically had to max out the volume on the POD, something that I just wronlgy assumed in the beggining as not working
Connecting the POD straight to the FX loop of the amp produced a freaking loud sound on the HT-5 but since it doesn't have a master volume you have to control the sound on the FX loop volume output of the POD. I guess if using the 4 cable method this wouldn't be a problem because you would be using the volume of the pre-amp of the HT-5 back into itself via the FX-loop
