Is it possible to update the JTV firmware without the interface i.e. using HD500 or do I need the interface?

I no longer have an HD500X, but I used to use it for my JTV-89F. Is it not working for you?

JTVs work with the 500x, former Variax models just with the non-X version of the POD HD.

You can do jtv fw updates with the 500 and 500X. I have both of them and have done it. The helix just recently got the ability to use HD WB, but as far as I know, cannot do jtv fw updates. Don't know why. Use line 6 monkey to do it.

Right! With Helix (2.21) you can use Workbench. Monkey sees the Variax but can not update the firmware.

I guess it‘s a USB MIDI problem on the Helix.

Maybe some wrong MIDI adresses‽

Hopefully Line6 makes it possible to open Helix firmware for future Variax firmware updates. ;-)

Just to clarify,... Helix v2.21 Firmware is not the same JTV v2.21 Firmware.

It‘s diffrent yes. Maybe I wrote wrong. Simply Helix can not update the Variax. Monkey sees the Variax connected to PC via Helix ;-)
