The OD channel isn't producing any OD but is audible (when just the guitar plugged in. Nothing in FX loop etc.). I just tried hooking up my GT100 via the 4-cable method: Guitar > GT input. GT out > Amp return. GT send > Amp input. GT return > Amp send. I didn't try the amp on its own immediately before trying this but the last time I played the amp on its own the OD worked.

Did this issue get figured out? Was it a tube issue? My HT-5RH had the very same issue. I was told by a tech to check the tubes, and knowing that eventually the tubes may become an issue, I bought replacements for both tubes.They arrive soon. Just wondering what happened with this amp as it sounded very familiar to me. Any answers?
