I decided to let this thread go for a while so I could monitor future posts of various peoples
experiences concerning this fault, and it seems to be quite the common fault without a doubt.
I believe I took the necessary steps to approach this logically and fairly, as a technician would.
1. Search and confirm that others are experiencing this same issue.
2. Took all the required steps to assess and rule out the expression pedal first.
3. Had a discussion in this forum to gather more information and evidence.
4. Contacted other technicians to cross reference and validate the fault.
5. Contacted Line6 tech support as instructed to further investigate the matter.
I don't think I could've approached this in a more concise and thorough manner and
have proven without a shadow of a doubt, that this is a fault within the firmware coding.
I started with the expression pedal, knowing that it would be the main target for the
Line6 masses to criticize and I relentlessly punched through the negative reactions.
I can't do more than I have to get this taken seriously, and still no dice in my futile quest.
So after all this, what have we learnt ? I've learnt, that despite all my efforts to have this
diagnosed and solved in a due manner, it is being completely dismissed by Line6 tech
support themselves, and is being blatantly ignored by Line6 in general, without fair reason.
If we can't get Line6 to see this for what it is by now, then I don't see any hope what-so-ever
in starting a new thread. I've personally spent more good money, time and effort on this than
a customer should. Maybe like MikeWin did, Line6 just want us all to accept it and forget about
it, or as FlyingsCool has hypothesized, maybe there's a hardware/software limitation preventing
Line6 in creating a firmware update to correct it, but I highly doubt it, seen as tho there are
some people that don't experience this. Either way, Line6's response to it has been largely
ignorant and less than satisfactory by any company or manufacturers standards, shameful.
I don't say all this because of the fault itself, I say all this because of how Line6 handled it.
What you all do with this information is up to you, but I for one, came to the conclusion
that Line6 is no-longer a company I want to deal with and has left me with a bitter resolve.
If its not at all possible for Line6 to process an update, then the only reason I can think of for
this blatant ignorance, is that Line6 are trying to avoid a product recall with complete silence.
