Phos4D posted a topic in POD 2.0, POD XT, Pocket POD, FloorPODsThe HW/SW details: PowerMac G5 1.8 GHz DP/4GB RAM Mac OS X 10.5.8 PodXT Live info screen displays: v 3.01 / USB v1.12 / ESN 01278564 Line 6 Edit v 3.0.1 Line 6 Monkey v 1.32 Brand new USB cable, tested, known to work with Printer & Scanner. All USB ports work fine with every device Iâ€™ve tested. I purchased my Pod XT Live used, several months ago. Iâ€™ve tested it with guitar amps and headphones, and it seems to function properly. Itâ€™s in perfect condition, save for a few small paint scuffs on the corners and edges of the housing. The retirement age gent I bought it from said heâ€™s never had it out of the house, and I believe him. Thereâ€™s not even any visible wear on the footswitches or the CC pedal. Unit seems virtually new. After connecting the Pod XT Live to my PowerMac and launching Line 6 Edit, the software does not recognize that the Pod is connected, telling me it is â€œoffline.â€ Nothing I do in Configuration seems to get them to handshake. Iâ€™ve connected directly to the front and back USB ports on my G5. Iâ€™ve disconnected all devices except for my mouse and keyboard (which are both wired) Help files in Line 6 Edit suggest that I run Line 6 Monkey to make sure Iâ€™m fully up-to-date, but even when I apply the same username and password which allows me access to the Line 6 website and this Forum, a floating alert window appears telling me that: My rebuttals to the Alert message: â€¢ I am ALWAYS connected to the internet with a robust, fast cable connection. â€¢ I have no system-wide popup blockers, or malware utilities running. â€¢ Just for good measure, I disabled popup blockers & AdBlock Plus in my browsers â€¢ (not addressed except on the License Manager FAQ page...No anonymizing apps in use) I perused the Line 6 forums & support pages and followed suggestions to download the Line 6 License Manager; after some trial and error I discovered that v 1.0.4 is the most current which will install on PPC architecture. It was only after I installed it and logged in (this time with success, I got no alerts about a failure to connect to the internet) that a message was displayed in the License Manager app that told me: Sooo...what installation or troubleshooting procedure am I missing here? BTW...the following message on the following page http://line6.com/support/page/kb/_/computer-based-recording/computer-audio-set-up-and-troubleshooting/usb-compatibility-with-line-6-devices-r342 is a HUGE engineering FAIL: ------------------------------------------ If you have tried all available USB ports on your computer and have either no device recognition or poor audio quality (clicks-pops), you will want to consider purchasing a PCI USB 2.0 card to connect your Line 6 USB audio interface. ------------------------------------------ Thanks in advance for pointing me toward any solutions...I champing at the bit to drive this thing around in Appleâ€™s Logic!
