MKII Express stupidity checklist?
by scragglejaw on 2011-12-26 14:06:08

Hi,

A noob here.  I have done everything I know how to do, but I can't get my MKII Express to control any of the Pod HD presets.  It's plugged in properly to the Pod HD, and I've installed FBV Control on my computer.  Anyone have a basic noob troubleshooting checklist I could run through for this?  Thanks.

There is a guide on how to setup and use a FBV Express MKII with the POD HD included in the POD HD user manual starting on page B1 - B22:

Ifyou the FBV still does not seem to connect to the POD HD, try using another ethernet cable to connect the two.

Thanks, Don.  The problem wasn't the ethernet cable.  What seems to be happening is that when I have the MKII Express plugged into the computer with the USB cable for MIDI functionality, it overrides the connection to the POD.  In other words, when I unplug the USB cable from the floorboard, its LEDs light up and it controls the POD fine.  But when I plug the USB cable back into the floorboard, its LED screen goes black and it won't talk to the POD.  Any ideas on how to keep the USB cable plugged into the floorboard and maintain POD control functionality?

no reason to do that, that i can think of.. but what you are describing sounds like expected operation to me.

Q: "Any ideas on how to keep the USB cable plugged into the floorboard and maintain POD control functionality?"

A: This functionality is not possible. When the USB cable connection is physically engaged, it overrides embedded hardware device control functionality (the connection to your POD). This is expected behavior.

Thanks, Perry.  That makes sense!
