I need some good and very basic directions on how to start programming a DS64 with a computer- I am a beginner trying to understand all of this. Secondly, do I need to program through my command station (Zephry Xtra) before programming with a computer to the DS64 relays. My DS64 relays will be used to control accessories rather than turnouts or locomotives. I have 6 DS64 relays and I want to use the 4 outputs on each relay giving me 20 output or accessories to control. Each DS64 relay will go ON and stay ON until they receive a OFF command ,I hope. Also, I have downloaded the programs DecoderPro with JMRI and configured them.
Does anyone know where I can find a glossary of definitions of programming terms in relation to Digitrax other than the Digitrax website ?Hope you can HELP ! me Thanks Dean
