Please clarify exactly how you have things hooked up when you get the problem.
Is it Variax 600 -> VDI -> HD500X -> L6 Link -> DT25 and all sound cuts in and out on your DT25 ?
If you replace the Variax 600 -> VDI with Strat -> 1/4 inch cable then everything is fine?
If you use the Variax 600 with VDI with X3L is everything OK?
If that is correct then you have narrowed the problem down to the VDI socket on the HD500X. It could be that there is a bent pin in the socket or maybe some dirt - so it is worth giving it a quick clean with some switch cleaner. It is also worth trying to use the short ethercon cable that came with the Variax for use with the USB dongle - the one that only has the lockable shielding at one end) - and see if that works. It is also worth trying just a standard Ethernet cable just to see if that works. If the problem continues after trying cleaning and different cables, then I suggest you send the unit back and ask for a new replacement.
Thanks. It's routed exactly as you've outlined. When it does cut out, I try the tuner on the HD500X and there's no signal so it does look like it's the VDI socket. I'll have a good look at it tomorrow and see if it's dirty.
I didn't get the USB dongle with the Variax, but I have a spare network cable I'll try out just to eliminate the possibility of it being the VDI cable.
