  1. Hey man, I was referring to reset where you hold the 2 switches together while powering up. You know the simple one. Not the complicated one. :) See my attachment. I really don't know if it will help.
  2. That's sounds strange. Have you tried to reset the DT and then try what the manual describes? I got to try mine out again soon. Lately I always just use the amp by itself.
  3. lollipop is an auto censorship within this forum, lol.
  4. I don't know about this either. Sounds untrue to me, lol. That's funny man! LOL
  5. I was brushing up on what the manual has to say at around 3-1 and 3-2. What I'm gathering is that you power up the HD500. Then make your patch. Then go into L6 settings and set that correctly depending on your set up. Then set the midi channel. After that plug in the L6 link to the DT. Then turn on the DT, let it warm up and set you master volume, etc. I would say to power down. I usually turn the DT's master volume all the way down then switch to standby. Wait 30 seconds then flick the power switch off. Then the HD500 can be powered down. I know there is controversy about putting the amp in standby before powering off. I think some people just turn the amp off but I don't think Line 6 recommends that. Oppppps, after reading the quick start guide for the DT it says it's not necessary to put the amp in standby when powering off. Now that I think about it I remember someone on the forums saying many just flick both switches at the same time to power down. http://line6.com/data/6/0a06434d107f14f7b82d58d962/application/pdf/L6%20LINK%20Connectivity%20Guide%20for%20POD%20HD%20&%20DT%20Amplifiers%20v2.00%20-%20English%20(%20Rev%20E%20).pdf
  6. I suppose if you've done that over and over again for a long time and it still works it's a good way. May I ask what your shutdown process is?
  7. It happened again? I'm not sure but did Line 6 ever recommend a certain startup procedure when hooked up via L6 Link?
  8. LOL, the ole in/out.....Somehow I knew that was ​coming.
  9. Hey BillBee, when I first dealt with midi the Uno was my first other than using my HD500 to control my X3Pro. When I first looked at the ins and outs as simple as it seems I was still confused a little, lol. I was thinking it was going to be A to A and B to B, hahaaaa so when I saw midi out to midi in I had to think about it. :unsure: Sounds like your saying the Midisport Uno doohickey can go either way but I'm not sure about that. Like Old Rocker said the midi connectors on the Uno say "to midi in" and "to midi out". I haven't dug mine out of the bag lately so I'm not sure how mine was marked. Now out of curiosity I gotta look at it, lol. :)
  10. I haven't experienced this one but some weird stuff can happen in the digital realm. Glad it's working for ya now. Sarcastically speaking, "don't do that again", lol. Keep on Rockin'
  11. Hey Old Rocker, did you try turning off the cab sims using DT Edit to see if you hear a difference in tone? Hope your having fun. :)
  12. Glad you got it working. Yes 2.0 is latest version as far as I know. Since you got DT Edit working you can play your amp and turn the cab sims on and off to see if your tone is affected.
  13. You could call line 6 support or ask the place you want to buy it from. I have no idea how to check the serial numbers on these.
  14. Also here's an old thread on it that might help you. There's more to the thread than what I copy/pasted if you want to read more of it click the following link. http://line6.com/supportarchivenew/thread/89126/ DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by greghall on 2012-11-06 00:57:17.9270 I've tried to update my DT25 with the 2.0 firmware, but get the 8000000A error code. I bought a new UNO midi cable, connected to my Mac Book Pro (running Lion), ran Monkey, selected MIDI device, then DT25 combo. Monkey detected the DT25 and confirmed the current firmware version. I ran Update, and got the error code. I have the latest driver, and have tried swapping the cables around, and also doing the update from a manual download. Does anyone have any suggestions to overcome this issue? Re: DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by DarthHollis on 2012-11-06 04:48:36.0570#1 Keep trying (sometimes I have had to try multiple times to get it to work) #2 Switch the Midi In and Midi Out pins going into the amp (make sure the lights on the deviced are on) #3 BOTH the Midi in and out on your computer need to show the conntection to the UNO midi cable #4 Make sure the amp is "On" (I was wondering why it wasn't working for me before I noticed the amp was off - duh) Hope this helps Re: DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by warta on 2012-11-06 10:06:52.7870I have the same issue Latest drivers, switch cables, restart computer, turn amp on/off The monkey still doesn't find/update the amp Moving the controls on the amp makes the midi light blink, wchich tells me the UNO is presumably working Can't help but wondering why no line 6 techs have answered these problems Re: DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by TheRealZap on 2012-11-06 10:13:35.1720warta wrote: Can't help but wondering why no line 6 techs have answered these problems line6 doesn't do support in the forum anymore... if you want input from line6, you need to call them or open a support ticket. Re: DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by sopachrga on 2012-11-06 10:42:45.1200Try this: -Power the amp off -Disconnect Midi cables from the amp (and all other cables, so you only have a speaker and power cable connected) -Hold the Channel selector switch down (towards channel B) then turn the main power switch on (Just leave it in standby) -Continue holding the channel switch for a good six seconds. (Nothing will happen to indicate that you have held it long enough) -Then release the channel switch -Plug the midi cables back in -Start Monkey back up That worked for my DT50, hopefully the DT25 is the same. Re: DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by greghall on 2012-11-06 14:47:54.5400Thank you for all your help / suggestions. After many attemps, I finally got the firmware update to work, by turning the amp on with the MIDI cables connected / USB plugged into the Mac. Then I toggled through topologies I to IV a couple of times, until on IV the MIDI in light on the UNO stayed on for a few seconds. This seemed to get the MIDI connection working, becuase after that I opened up Monkey and ran the update, and it all worked fine. I'm not sure why this worked, but it may be that the driver has to receive a MIDI signal before it will send one - just a guess! Re: DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by warta on 2012-11-08 08:18:57.0790The saga continues.... I called Line 6 Tried the safe start mode. Nothing He suggested I buy new cables or try another computer. Maybe thats's the problem. And oh by the way, this is not a warranty item since the amp "works". He said I could send the amp to them and they could update it. Ya, right. I purchased a midi cable to see if my amp received signals via HD500. It does. I downloaded Midiox and in the window I have midi signals coming and going through my existing cables when I move diasl on the amp. The issue seems to me to be the Line 6 monkey and its inability to find the amp for whatever reason. Based upon the many posts I've read from clear back to 2007 it's an ongoing issue. Many users seem to keep trying, flip swithches 20 times, start and restart their computers, the monkey, or the amp and magically it works. Unfortunately for me it hasn't And line 6 appears inable or unwilling to fix the issue. Re: DT25 Update - error code 8000000A by snuffels9 on 2012-11-10 07:37:11.1720Here is another magic trick, that worked for me. ;-) I had the issue that Line6 Monkey could detect the DT25, and started to update the firmware, but the update failed with some weird error message. I got It working after I downloaded the firmware file from the web page and told the monkey to update from file instead of letting it download the file.
  15. Your welcome. I have to admit I haven't used mine in a while so it sounds like you have the right connection made. I'm sure that when I did it I had both in and out connected to the DT. You said earlier you had the issue during the download part of the update. Maybe you need to manually download the update and then when you start the installer point towards the already downloaded file. I've this issue before but not with this install.

  16. Good Morning Old Rocker, You should have midi out to midi in. Take the UNO's midi out and plug that into the DT's midi in. http://smallbusiness.chron.com/use-midi-cable-out-plugs-49492.html
  17. When I did it I was always on edge cause this area was/is known for power outages. Messed with my nerves a bit but I never had an issue.
  18. While some in the past have posted they were successful with other midi interfaces there were some that didn't go well. I think your making a good decision getting the Midisport. I think when I got it I had to get the drivers from their website. Here's their driver search page in case you haven't been there yet > http://maudio.com/support/drivers-search
  19. .Maybe a factory reset needs to be done. It helped one other person but with another issue. There can be any number of issues that a factory reset can fix. Check out the FAQ,s page and root around in the Spider Jam section.
  20. I have and used the M-Audio UNO. Still works great. If you use the Uno it's recommended by them to check for and update it at their website.
  21. Glad to hear yours sounds good after the factory reset. The one I got still sounds good and is the same age as yours. I'll use until it gives up the ghost then try to fix it if it's simple enough.
  22. I have 600 ohm headphones which work and feel really nice. It's not needed though, 250 ohm and below work great with the HD Pod's.
  23. If I recall correctly I tried that and it worked but if I wanted to control midi with the footswitches I had to have the "midi" part on screen on the pod on and if I wanted to control the effects part I needed to have the "chain" part on screen in essence making me have to switch between them to control each half so to speak. I hope you can understand that, lol. You can use it like that but unless I'm missing something it's not very convenient to operate that way. I think this is where the L6 link and the midi are separated in that the L6 link does it all and not only part of the controlling.
  24. You're welcome. I had the older UX2 which came with GearBox for the GUI.

    Could the 1/4 inch guitar input be bad? Sometimes those connectors lose connection.
