Nevermind..... Sweetwater sent me a bad VDI cable. Figured it out by using the cat5 cable that came with the USB interface.

Don't use the cat 5 cable for any extended length of time. The connector is slightly smaller than the VDI connector, and because there is no locking shell, it will damage the guitar's connector.Then the VDI connection won't work until it's replaced on the guitar.

Yes I know. It came in handy for trouble shooting though. Definitely wouldn't have used it for anything other than that.

Are your comments related to a standard Cat5 cable or the specific cable that ships with the guitar for the USB connection?

I ordered a separate vdi cable but yes I used the cable that came with the jtv that has the housing on one end.

I believe they are just cat5 cables with metal housing on the ends.
