  1. RodeoRanger, did you try this potential fix that I posted back in April 2017? Hello All, I just wanted to throw this out there. Initially my Nexus 6p with Android Nougat 7 wasn't connecting or it was dropping the connection. I then downgraded, with no immediate success, to Android Marshmallow. Frustrated, I started messing around with the Developer Options which need to be unlocked. You can do this by going to Settings and somewhere you should see a Build Number option. Tap on this section 7 times to unlock. Then I enabled an option called "Disable USB audio routing" and tried connecting once again. It worked and has been working ever since. Now, I haven't tried to verify this by enabling USB audio routing because I'm a little gun-shy. I'm just glad it is now working...lol. I will give that a shot and update everyone soon. Also note that I'm not sure that every phone has the USB audio routing option either. However, it can't hurt to check your phone and see.  Let me know if this works for you or not. Good luck!
  2. Look up about 6 or so tellies in this thread. I wrote something in it that had worked for me and a couple others. Worth a shot. Good luck!

    Hey smokingaces! As phil-m stated, they just released a PC version of the Spider V Remote...called Spider V Remote. The cable that came with your Spider V is a USB Type B (amp side) to USB Type A Plug. Obviously, the Type a plug cannot plug into your Android tablet and that's why you need an OTG cable. The OTG cable will have a USB Type A receptacle on one end with a connector that will plug into your phone on the other end. What type of connector you need on the OTG cable depends on what type of tablet or phone you are using. In my case, I need a Type A receptacle to a USB Type C so it would plug into my Nexus 6p phone. I hope this helps you out a little. The Spider V is a fun little amp that has a ton of possibilities. Take care!

    Worst amp ever?

    Well said ppiluk and those are exactly my thoughts. Sweetwater have me 45 days to try the Spider V out and if I for some reason don't like the amp, I can return it free of charge. Can't beat that. But I really, really dig this amp. So for all of you that are a bit weary, give the Spider V a chance...I think it will surprise you!
  8. Thanks for sharing! I'll give it a go tonight and see what happens. At least it may be a stable solution until Line 6 gets this figured out.
  9. How do you like the VirtualBox setup? Was going that route on mine.

    Worst amp ever?

    I don't think this is a bad amp at all. However, you do have to be willing to tweak and dial in the sounds you looking for. I don't play one style of music. I play worship at church and I need to be able to dial​ in a wide variety of styles. This amp fits that bill perfectly! Also, it fits my budget. I can't afford to spend thousands of dollars on an amp and then hundreds or more on pedals. I'd like to some day but can't right now. Spider V is great for my scenario.
  11. Anything running on Android 6 or greater had not worked for me. I have a Nexus 6p, 2 LG G4s, and and an LG G Pad tablet. They ask run Android 6 or greater. Spider Remote WILL NOT work on any of them. I pulled out an old Galaxy S4 with Android 5.0.1 and it worked like a charm. Also, if you open a support ticket with Line 6, you'll see that the is no category option for Android 6 or greater. This tells me that they haven't developed for these versions of Android. Hopefully, they have it in the works because the Spider V is a great amp!
