Since it is working under pc control both with v2.0 + older firmware, it seems that ur prblm lies on the model selector.
Search this forum 4 "model selector problem" I am sure it'll help u find out a solution.
May be it would be necessary to open a support ticket or return the unit 4 a replacemnt (if still under warranty).

The "Model Selector" is just a pot that feeds an A/D. There is a mechanical detent for each model bank position. If it's misadjusted it will pick up the wrong model bank. I don't know if there is a calibration for this. There used to be for the old original Variax. You may have a bad model selector pot.

Thanks for your answers.
Yes that's what I fear "bad model selector" !! I have opened a support ticket, waiting for line 6 answer.
You confirm that there is nothing more to test ?

And is it possible to buy this pot somewhere and install it by myself?
an idea of the cost?

Is your guitar still under warranty?

It's a little particular, I bought it 3 or 4 weeks ago during an auction in a compulsory liquidation of a music store, so the guitar is new, but I don't have any store to bring it back.
I have opened a ticket to line 6 support but no answer for the moment, and frankly I prefer to pay 10€ or $, change the pot myself and keep my guitar to play every day rather than sending it to line 6 and stay 1 month without it.

I would suggest to wait till L6 responds.
