Unfortunately there is not a way step through the 4 different voices of the DT via the POD and have the DI's output match the speaker's output.

Well, does that settle it? I think it settles the question of whether my amp is f*cked up. The answer is: "yes, but not in a 'broken' sort of way. It's by design."
I'm pretty sure if I'd have known this I wouldn't have bought the amp. I'm still gonna use it (unless someone wants to offer a fair price) and I actually think it sounds fantastic, but as a backend to a Dream Rig - no way. Woulda used the POD XLRs and a cheap powered monitor. Woulda saved myself many hundreds of dollars and countless wasted hours of twiddling.
BTW all my posts on this thread pertain to LVM
