Hi, I've just acquired a POD XT live, I'm using it for practice through my  Blackstar HT-5, there are so many variant ways to connect these two units, has anyone any suggestions, mainly conecting the XT between the send and returns, or bypassing the front of the amp and just connecting the XT to the return and use the XT as the input device, either way there are two adjustments that I'm not sure about:

a) On the XT is a line/amp output switch, what should that be set to when connecting to the Blackstar's return

B) On the Blackstars return is a 4db/10db switch what should that be set at. 

I would like to set all the patches to neutral, ie no amps/effects ( like a bypass ) any ideas on the best way of doing this, regarding levels, ie bypass levels and amp levels, tis all a bit daunting really and any help would be welcome.
