mtreehugger.just for information & my own curiosity i have downloaded & read(quite a few times)the Pod HD/DT25 L6 Link document,i have to say i find the instructions "vague",but i'm pretty sure it says. Set up The Pod (go through the various screens) for L6 Link,then wirh XLR/AES cable already connected switch on the DT25 & it should see the Pod & set itself up ready for use. I think what you're describing is pretty much the same procedure,but maybe the Pod should be fully read
