I can only access this email account from my work, so I always forget to check things when I get home, but I'm pretty sure mine has to flash too when it's working.  
Also, I think I used a mono 1/4" with a stereo 1/4" - 1/8" adapter at the end because it was the closest thing I could find, but I think pure mono would probably work fine.

The wav file I used, which worked for me, was from here

My experience with the patch loading ist that the "load" leds HAVE to flash. 
this seams to indicate that the micro is able to read the zeros and ones from 
fm signal on the tape (or cd or whatever).
I had to try different wav files from the internet until i found one that 
worked well with my poly800 (i purchased from ebay).

btw. the guy who sold it to me offered it as "in perfect working condition" 
actually there was a brocken tl062 that caused all eight voices to sound when 
only one
key was pressed (all voices at different frequencies - ugly sound) .... 
different people seem to different  opinions on the term "perfect working"!
