variax can't be seen by my podxt live
on 2010-10-27 20:40:41.9060
hi. i have a variax 500 that can't be seen by my podxtlive. whenever i try to connect it to the variax port ,podxt live says "no variax connected". what can i do to troubleshoot this? i have lost my vdi cable, so i use a standard cat5 cable. i've tried lots of cat5 cables just to be sure it's not just an issue of faulty cable but still nothing. i am from hongkong, the local distributor here isn't really helpful ( even when ordering vdi cable takes 6mos to eternity!). it really gets frustrating when i can't get the most out of my gear. i hope you guys can help me out. thanks

check ebay for the cable. they all ship world wide. just got a package from australis to us. 6 days. also chect the wires in the vdi connector on your pod and the guitar if one is lower than the others or bent to the sides that could be your problem if so take a bread tie shape the end into a j shape and carefully pull it up to the level of the rest. the key word is carefully.
