Yep. I have a piece of flex track just for programming. I don't have the Pro version of the NCE but the Power Cab with an SB5 booster so I got five amps. Since my layout is up so high, and the fact that the SB5 doesn't have a "programming track" mode, made me set up the programming part by...
My problem with this DCC stuff is that not only were they designed by electrical engineers but the manuals must have been written by the same guys. It's confusing to be sure. The DCC manufacturers need to hire tech writers that can actually present material to an audience that...
LOL! Too funny toot.
To set this bit...
The default value for CV49, Headlamp control is 15, but change this to 2 for a Mars light. The effect is there, but not very vibrant with an LED, as you’d expect. Add in 128 (128+2=130) into CV49 and look at the mars light now.
Yep and set bit 7 to compensate if you like...
Hyperlight Effect Select
Used to set the Hyperlight lighting effect and control mode for their respective output:
CV 49, Headlight Effect Select
CV 50, Backup Light Effect Select

I have read that you can download sounds from the net for some decoders. Not sure if you could do this with these or not but it might be worth looking into if you are not satisfied (??).
This will probably not be found humourous around the train guys but it reminded me of aerodynamics when I read the thread title as in...
...will the outside rail cause the inside rail to stall the locomotive before the other?...
Now that's just funny if I were around aircraft oriented folks ;)...
If it were me, I'd reset the loco and the command station.
Just a thought :)
I have no idea on the RF stuff, I guess it sounds plausable I suppose :confused:
I have been reluctant to solder my loco's just yet fearing the manufacturer would void my warranty if I needed to send it in. I would certainly like to though. Several of my loco's went "loco" and it turned out to...
My father taught me to solder and he said that was a "Cold Joint/Join". It's when you heat the solder only and not the piece being soldered if I recall.
I just looked it up on Wikipedia to make sure my info is good and this is what I found:
"A heat sink may be used on the leads of heat...
Get MRC to stand by the warranty...get them back and eBay them and get the Tsunami. That's what I'd do :)
I just read your posts more carefully and read you soldered them. Not sure how you or MRC would feel to do a warranty thing having done that.
I feel your pain about the soldering...
That is a VERY good idea Michael...thank you :)
Yea I'm trying. It may be tomorrow when I can get a fresh start...sorry Ken, it's been a long day.
I did see you have been researching the issue, I even found your convo over on the Model Railroader site lol. I'll holler if I learn anything else new. Not having your hardware I will be hard...
Let me look around and verify. If you cannot tell, this is bugging me lol.
Ok. Now maybe we are getting somewhere (maybe not). Look here...
Note the download location for drivers that may be updated. The driver at the download site is dated December...
You might have done this but did you get your driver from here? ...
I'm sure you did but I thought I'd take a shot in the dark.
