Since I have a VDI cable and a POD HD500, I know I can connect them using that.  But is there any advantage to ALSO hooking an instrument cable from the 1/4" jack to the guitar input as well?  While I am at it, what are the benefits/issues with each input I could select inside the HD500, namely Variax, Variax Mags, Guitar/Aux/Variax and so on?  I have been selecting "Variax in input 1 and "same" in input 2 so far...

However you play music using whatever gear you may choose that day-- the JOY of making it is the heart of it.

1. No

2. Each input goes to path 1 or 2. So setting to same means the same signal is sent to both paths. This is a normal setup (although read in the HD500 forums about distortions some believe this may cause). To further understand these inout choices, look into dual paths on the HD500.
