I recently bought the FBV Express MKII to controll my POD XT (bean) unit.
The problem is, that the board doesn't switch any patches at all.
If I select different patches on my pod, the respective led on the fbv does light up.
Let's say I have 28A selected on my pod. The FBV then lights up on A. I switch on my pod to 28B -> FBV B lights up.
Obviously, the FBV should controll my POD, not the other way around
If I use the ABCD switches on the FBV, nothing happens on the POD.
How is this possible? The manual says, both units are compatible and they should work "plug & play".
What I already tried to do:
- I updated anything via line6monkey.
- I connected the FBV to usb only to test in Gearbox -> same as it is with the pod. I switch something in gear box and the leds on the FBV change, but not the other way around
- I connected the FBV to the POD with the original cable, having the POD conected to my PC via USB and without havong it connected to my PC. -> No difference!
- I calibrated the FBV multiple times.
I just noted, that the red led on the FBV (let's say is flickering in an interval of ~2-3 seconds when I put it on. (This is not for TAP, as I choose a sound without any TAP tempo stuff). The display shows nothing, until I change the sound on the pod. It then shows ABC or D and the LED stops flickering - > still no function on the FBV-buttons
Did anyone experience this kind of problem? Or is there maybe a simple solution I just didn't think of?
I'm looking forward to your suggestions
