  1. I'm running into this same problem. As soon as my MacBook loses the network connection my DAW immediately crashes. It doesn't seem to matter if I leave WiFi on or not. As soon as the network connection is terminated, everything crashes. We've been talking about it over on TGP. From what we've been able to find so far, it looks like the issue happens to users who used a WiFi connection when they first installed and authenticated Native. If you used an ethernet connection, everything should be fine, but if you used an ethernet -> USB dongle you might have to keep it connected. Does anyone know if Line 6 is aware of this issue? Is it something that's being worked on?
  2. Well, I found the answer. It seems the metal coffin is the culprit. I took my 300 apart, shielded the whole thing, and the problem is gone! I'm gonna take the 600 apart tomorrow and do the same thing. Does anyone have gut shots of the JTV? How are the electronics mounted inside it? I hope they've moved away from the metal coffin...
  3. Interesting, I thought I had heard somewhere that this was a common issue with the old ones. I'll have to scan through the archives and see what I find. If it's something simple like grounding, I might just have my 300 and 60 repaired. I know there's a local guy who does repair work on these, but I was hesitant to drop more money into fixing them when I could put that money towards a JTV... though it would have 2 instead of 1 which would be nice...
  4. This has probably been discussed on here somewhere, but I'm hoping to get some info from my personal experiences. Does anyone know specifically what Line 6 has/hasn't changed to fix the issues with model jumping on the old Variax's? I used to gig constantly with a 500, and had no issues at all, it was solid as a rock. Recently I picked up a 300 and a 600, and both have horrible problems with the 5-way selector and model select knob randomly changing models on me while playing. It makes the guitars completely un-giggable. I've heard this isn't an uncommon problem. I really want to use Variax's as my primary guitars. I'm totally sold on the concept, and I absolutely love what I can do with them. They're perfect guitars for me, but I need to be able to have complete confidence in my gear. I'm thinking about picking up one of the new JTV Variax's, but I'm hesitant. I don't want to spend that kind of money on something that is going to start developing the same issues in a few years. I'm hoping this was enough of an issue with old Variax's that Line 6 has done something to fix it and make the new one's more reliable, but I can't find any info on specifically what they might have done to fix some of these old issues. Does anyone have any info from Line 6 about this? Thanks!
