I've been dicking around for months trying to get one of these cheapo ebay USB-MIDI units to work with any of my Line 6 products.
Endless hours trawling internet sites looking for clues, downloading dodgy drivers and doing registry hacks, all with no joy.
I finally bit the bullet last week and ordered the m-audio uno which arrived today.
Plugged it in and everything now works perfectly.
So, not ideal when you've already spent a ton of money on Line 6 gear you have to shell out another £23 just to do updates :-( but (for me anyway) it now works.

You'll eventually find other uses for it, so it's an investment in stress relief. I originally got mine for a totally different purpose a few years ago. There will be other updates in the future, I'm sure.

So like Stueyd I tried the cheapo route and got some USB-MIDI cables for $4 on Amazon; Took a week to arrive and of course they didnt work. So then I thought, "what could be so special about the Uno cable making it worth $40 compared to the $4 one from Amazon? It must be the driver!" Tried the M-Audio driver but of course the $4 device doesnt pretend to be the M-Audio so it ignored the drivers and used its own. So I broke down, visited Guitar Center on Black Friday weekend (shudder) and bought one for $40.
It actually didnt work the first time. The MIDI Out defaults to Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth and you have to change it to MIDISPORT Uno Out and then choose the DT25. Then it sees the amp and also displays the installed version (mine was at 1.00 so I guess I didnt update it, though I thought I did in the past.)
Anyway, all good now. Of course, since I'm using a "Dream Rig" configuration, I probably wont benefit from it, but at least I'm up to date on all my stuff (JTV/HD500/DT25.)
Now back to jamming.
Thanks for everyone who made suggestions
