Despite being a long-time POD HD user, I recently ran into a problem, that seemed really odd to me.

In the POD:
I have inputs set to Input 1: "Guitar", Input 2: "Variax", to avoid signal doubling.
There is one single amp in the patch, in mono.
Mixer set to both channels at 0 degrees (center).
There's 1 FX block post mixer, which is reverb.
I run only 1 xlr (left or right) as mono send to FOH board.

The channel in the FOH board has got pan set to center.

And I get only one channel working in the FOH. To have guitar in both channels, I have to set input 2 to "same" or "guitar", so there's sound in both sides of the FOH system.

I don't f***ng get it. The outs are mono per se, unless they're panned in the Mixer block, right? There's a mono patch, I send mono signal from the XLR out to a mono channel on the board, HOW ON THE EARTH the sound is only in one channel?

there must be some missing information in your post, because from your description it seems impossible what is happening ..
whatever you do and connect/send via an XLR cable into the channel of the FOH, if the FOH channel pan is centered you should hear it both right and left

positive this is a mixer board issue. as hurghanico said, check channel pan, bus assignment, etc.  the other possibility is you are being put into a stereo strip on the board and are only hitting one side with your mono signal.  make sure they are putting you into a mono strip, panned to center.

i posted it right after the gig. as soon as i switch both inputs on, the signal is in both sides. i am kinda.. terrified. will do more tests next week and report back. and yes i do understand, that it's an impossible scenario, but it does happen and it's NOT the first time. will have to check thoroughly the rest of the chain post modeler.
