  1. Hi Izzy It was not Gaugemaster it was a friend I know who plays with electronics in his spare time Bryan
  2. you need to split up you railway and use the esu booster pack to power part of the layout, you are drawing a high current with all the stay allive units on start up? the contoller think there is a short on the layout by pressing the go button you are charging the stay alive unit a little bit, when pressed again, a little bit more, and will stay on when the stayalive have chaged and the start current has droped. Bryan
  3. Thank to all who took the time to reply, this is the most I have ever had on any topic. There is a bit of good news here, the base unit has been repaired with parts from rs component at a cost of £12 with postage so it is economically to repair. Thanks Bryan
  4. Is Gaugemaster having problems with Prodigy Advance2 ? the base unit is failing when sent back to gaugemaster the reply is uable economically to repair the unit is shorting out, and cannot supply a replacement base unit. Have any others had the same problems, where do you go from here?? Bryan
  5. Hi how did you sort out your problem without using a consist? ( both decoders with the same addess) this problem only hapens with railcom and railcom plus turned on
  6. Hi I had a problem with a v5 loksound decoder esu5200 would not find it I thought it was a problem with the decoder it turn out that you have to have Railcom and Railcom PLus turned on then it will work ok Bryan
  7. Hi Phill I would like to know what you have done in ECoS I did not know you could do that. The two decoders where bought as separate Items
  8. HI Nigel you can run two decoders with the same address with Railcom OFF (sound, traction, lights and other lights trailing car) As soon you turn Railcom ON Then you cannot use the same address on ECoS it keeps changing it.I am looking at this to see if the software will allow me to link the address (functions) I know the drive functions can be joined in consists and this changes the directional light only
  9. The new signals are very nice with the servo operation, I have unpluged the servos from the intrernal board and connected them to a Megapoint servo controller to run on DCC, I hope they are going to revamp the single post signal to servo so I can do the same with them.
  10. Thanks for all your replys, I used two different address and run them as a trainset in RR&CO head and tail lights ok the only differance is coach lighting does not work as one, they are separate decoder funchions buttons this is not the end of the world? ManyThanks again Bryan
  11. Hi Juian Thanks for that I have run two loco's in consist with differant address as one unit, I think you have sorted my problem out many Thanks
  12. I run two car dmu loco's with the same address in the driving loco and trailing car to run the coach and directional lights, this works ok with railcom turned off,and will not with it turned on the ESU ECoS will not let me run two decoders of the same address. The problem is I run my layout with RR&CO and the new V5 loksound decoders will not work with railcom turned off via RR&CO? the problem only came to light when I had a new loco with v5 decoder.
  13. I set up a new loco in TC (create engine) and this sets the ECoS controller, I do not set up the ECoS and I allways had the RAILCOM and RAILCOM PLUS turned off the answer to your question is no Many Thanks
  14. Hi Andy ( two tone green) and all who help me with this problem, I have now found the answer with all your help Many Thanks the loco is now running with TC and TP programes. If you turn on Railcom the ECoS controller auto detects the loco and loco runs on ECoS controller only you can also turn railcom off and it still runs on the controller only. On the ECoS controller there is anouther switch you must turn on turn RAILCOM on and RAILCOM PLUS on the ECoS controller, with these turned on TC works the loco ok, if you turn off RAilCOM PLUS the loco stops w
