Upgraded HD500x to 2.61 and now I can't use it for my JTV VDI connection to Workbench HD


Recommended Posts

I just upgraded my HD500X to 2.61 and purchased and installed the HD Bundle Model Pack. No issue within any of the upgrades, however, now when I have my JTV plugged into the HD500X and run Workbench HD, it says that there is no JTV connected.


I upgraded everything else via line 6 monkey at the same time and have even went through and reinstalled the latest.


Workbench HD - Ver. 2.12

POD HD500X Flash: 2.61, USB: 1.04

Line 6 Drivers: 7.3.7

JTV: Flash: 2.21


I was able to connect via the USB/VDI adapter, so I am thinking it is the POD HD500X upgrade that was caused the issue.


Anybody else having this issue?

Since day 1...long before the latest firmware...I've had to connect to Monkey first when trying to get Workbench to recognize the JTV through the POD. Don't know why, but if I plug everything in and try to go directly to Workbench, it never sees the guitar. Give that a try, see if it works.

Thanks everyone, but this issue is only relevant to using the HD500X as the VDI connection for a JTV to be able to use WorkbenchHD. 


I have tried to run Monkey first, which sees the JTV as connected through the HD500x, but no matter which I launch in whatever order, the JTV is never seen by Workbench if connected through the HD500x.  This worked flawlessly before the upgrade the the HD500x firmware.  The HD500x seems to be working fine as a HD500x.


Really looking for anyone that is specifically using the HD500x as the VDI connection for a JTV to access Workbench HD.

Interesting that this happens to some people and not others. (I'm on HD500 and not X, so the point is moot for me...)


If you haven't already tried it, I'd suggest reinstalling the Line 6 Audio/MIDI drivers and restarting the computer. If that still doesn't work, then if possible, try a different computer and see if that makes any difference.
