You'll need to use an MRC to control the LXP5 from now on but you can use the following diagnostic to find out what knob position will prevent the random patch change;
The following diag lets you identify "good" settings for your knobs that will let you use your MRC and not have the LXP-5 change stuff on you.
1) Unplug the unit from the wall 2) Plug it back while holding the Learn button in. 3) Release the Learn button (no lights will be on at this point). 4) Turn the Preset knob to "Edit B" 5) Press and Release the Learn button (the LED will be RED now). 6) Set all three rotary switches (Preset, ????, Adjust) to the same * *position. I started from Bypass, Min, Min. 7) If the LED is green, this is a good setting for the LXP-5. * *If the LED is red, this combo of positions is hosed. 8) Move all three rotary switches to the next position and observe the * *color of the LED. Green = Good. Red = Bad. 9) Repeat step 8 until you have checked all 16 positions. Remember, for * *the test to work, all three switches must in the same position.

Dude, thank you SO much for this. This was a life saver! Now I don't even have to worry about glitchiness at all with this thing hooked up to the MRC with a beautiful green learn light.

Very happy!
