I am a Marklin digital man – Mfx is my blessing. A year or so a go I bought at a very good price an LGB digital starter set so I gained a CS2 and a few bits of LGB for Xmas and Grandkids. Naturally I started to love the LGB and bought a few more bits to experiment much to the shock of my wife and my bank account. So at present we have a turnout with a 55524 decoder all very fine except on the CS2 display it is out of sync straight to curved. Various little experiments no avail so I think I need to change the DCC polarity (?) but DCC is not in my grasp and I cant work out how to do this -help!
I would like to expand to a small shunting layout using another turnout and three 10560 uncoupling tracks. So do I go for the “old fashioned” 51755 control box plus my one digital turnout or do I go for a 55525 four decoder set plus my 55524 the instructions of which do not acknowledge the uncoupler model and this appears to need a further power supply (for the light mast?)

Have you tried reversing the wires to the point motor?

You should also be able to do it in the software. I know how to in MTS, but I haven't a MFX system....

I have tried reversing the wires at the point motor. reversing the wires at the track, swapping the point motor to the other side. It kind off doesn't matter but if I expand and try and use the CS2 track diagram it is obviously wrong!

Thanks for your response but I'm afraid you are dealing with nice but dim here and that went woosh over my head. I have read that bit of the manual many times but what I cant work out is how to get into DCC to programme it! From the CS2 page where the turnout is showing I press configure then press CV access then get lost!
