DIGITRAX..HUM, DID I MAKE A MISTAKE????
hello every one,
i recently converted from an MRC prodigy advanced system ( the reason i
changed is because MRC's tech department is terrible..very rude) but the system
ran fine,i had some small issues with the throttles .so over the past 2 weeks i have
spent in access of $500.00 to upgrade to the Digitrax DCS100 w/ DT400 & UP5 i was having
problems programming locos ( posted on here about a week ago) so i purchased the PR3,2 PS14"s & a UR90.
this is my question. how long does it take to download the the info on the
supplied CD? i have read the instructions where one of the comments was " don't
let windows download the drivers" i never saw that window come up. it took about
3 minutes or less to load the cd. does that sound right? i am having a multitude
of problems & i think they are all stemming from the download.
here is a quick overview of how i have the wiring set up.from the DCS100 track
a/b to terminal strip from there, 16ga bus around the layout also from track a/b
i ran track status wire to the UR90 terminals.i used the supplied cable to
connect the locoNet from the booster to the UR90 which is powered by one
PS14.the program a/b is wired via DPDT.( i was having problems programming
locos)which lead me to my next purchase of the PR3.it is located about 10' from
the booster, right next to my computer.so i also installed another program / run track
at this point .it is insulated from the layout & is controlled via a DPDT switch.
i didn't have one single piece of cable for the loco net hook up so i used some
atlas cables that i had for their signaling system. i check for the wire
orientation against the digitrax & found them to be exact.agaian these cables
where not long enough so i used a coupler that has 6 postion connectors.so the
locoNet cable runs from the UR90 to the UP5. from the UP5 to the PR3.
i have a dedicated USB port for the PR3
so with all of that being said, i hope some one can guide on how to install
the CD properly & hopefully rid the rest of the problems i am having. i will
wait for the proper installation of the CD before i get into the other problems
i am having. i don't want to send anyone on a wild goose chase if the CD install
is the problem
thanks in advance for your help
