Just bought a JTV 69 and HD500x - Any tips?

The JTV69 got here. It's nice. Better than I expected.

Line6 did not send a VDI cable with it. Can I use a standard Cat5 ethernet with it? I've got plenty of them laying around.

I tried using one to plug into the USB interface and Line6 Monkey/Workbench HD wouldn't recognize the JTV69 was connected.

I just ordered a couple of VDI cables from Amazon, but they won't be here until Saturday. Trying to figure out a workaround in the meantime.
Yes, but they can break the connection if you're not careful. It it's just a few days and at home, you should be fine. Just be gentle with it.

I'll call support and see why it isn't working.
The workbench and monkey apps won't recognize it without Line6 adapter. It should have come with one if you bought new.

otoh, once you have the 500x, you won't need it. You can go Variax->VDI->HD500x->USB->computer.

P.S. Check out the Variax and HD500x sections on the Vguitar forum. LOTS of great info there.

Support straightened me out. Gotta have a dummy connection in the 1/4" to activate the electronics when using the Line6 USB adapter.

Apparently, that is not needed when using the 500x as the interface.
