This is crazy..... so I checked out what Dick had suggested - the itty bitty (and they really are itty bitty) meters on the FX unit screen - and they were not registering.
So, I cancelled the routing that was what I had selected originally which was input>return and switched it to insert (random selection). Then I switched the input from FX1 to input 3 (totally random choices). Then I re-selected input>return and FX1 again and made sure I hit the 'apply' button. This was to make sure my selections actually were applied. I then triple checked every setting I could find with existing proven scene settings to make sure they were the same.......
However, no change....no itty bitty metering ....no nuttin'.........Aaaaarggghhhh.
Finally, I have manually copied all the settings I have on that scene to a different scene and the monitor FX work fine. I did it this way so I wouldn't be copying the same problem if I simply used the digital copy function.
I have kept the old scene in case I can get to the bottom of this for learning purposes.
If this is a glitch, I hope it can be fixed with firmware.
If it is operator error, I hope I can be fixed with a double Southern Comfort....
