    Hi everyone. Hoping to receive some guidance on an obstacle I encountered, after reading my loco’s decoder, saving to a roster, and attempting to test some of the loco’s functions. I read the loco from the programming track, successfully. No errors. I can’t get the loco to respond to throttle commands, while on the programming track, though. Is this not supported in DCC++?

    I tried switching over to the main track, and running a throttle through panel pro. However, I encounter the same issue.

    I do have the power turned on to the track. All of my LEDs are on, my loco is selected and set. How can I trouble shoot this issue? If I monitor traffic, I see the command going to the loco at the set address, last line in the traffic for the command says (no reply expected). Not sure if that has anything to do with the issue.

    Any guidance is greatly appreciated!

    Sorry I can't help but you would probably get more attention to your problem if you posted in the DCC++ forum here on Trainboard. It is monitored by a lot of friendly and helpful people.

    Incredibly sorry. I thought DCC++ was part of this one. Thanks!

    No need to be sorry, it's not always easy to determine which forum here to put things. I've been known to mis-post at times. lol

    Check in the JMRI setting preferences and make sure it is setup for the DCC++ being the main command station. You can have it set to use the Programming track but have another command station to run your trains.

    The power on button is, is a "Power ON" only.

    Hi i am a newbie and on my first foray into dcc++ and Jmri.
    My difficulty is that when I download jmri the messages in green that jmri is communicating with the shield and Dcc++ are printed. Also the lights on the shield are always switched on and I cannot switch them off from the power switch on jmri. I checked the voltage on the track and is is around 16 volts but to me it is dc and not ac

    Another problem is that when I put an engine on the track and try to read the decoder type it gives a generic answer and that the decoder is not in the file. In the mean time the engine runs at full speed backwards.

    Any idea on what i am doing wrong?

    Regards Chris
