Well, perhaps you SHOULD have resisted, Dan!I've just come to this thread and cannot resist. Forget everything and convert to battery power.....
So Greg, if I understand right, you don't think this has any relevance to the inability to activate other sounds etc ?If that is reading the setting in CV29, that means Analog Conversion is enabled, i.e. the decoder will recognize analog DC and run. This setting NEVER disables it's ability (and desire!) to recognize and operate on DCC signals.
So, if this is indeed the decoder setting, and specifically CV29, which the rest of the screen seems to agree with, it makes no difference.... all you can do is enable/disable the operation on Analog, you never affect the DCC recognition.
Well, again, please bear with me for my greeness but I believe it is assigned, it is 00001 on my Navi, as you can see in the photo.Re the picture you posted in post 150, I notice no loco address has been assigned?
Well since I started this thread, maybe I can comment, after a few months with digital.Well, perhaps you SHOULD have resisted, Dan!
This is an exceedingly divisive topic, almost as bad as politics or even the Mac/PC debate, and equally unlikely to ever be laid to rest.
Track power (DC or DCC) works just fine for lots and lots of people.
Battery RC works just fine for many people too.
Some of us happily do both, and don't consider either one "better" than the other.
Both will give you endless trouble if you try to skimp or bodge things.
What's the old saying: "There are none so devout as the converted"...... in this case, converted to battery power......
Thanks for that. I followed that..however I now cannot work out how to save the changes I have made (see photo) Should I press M1, M2 or M3? I have assumed M3, which gets me out of that page, however when I go back to check, my changes have not been saved. I often get this kind of problem with my Navi. It and I have different ideas of the meaning of the word "intuitive".Re my post 153:
To be able to continue with programming, an address is required, once this is entered, then the options of moving and changing come into effect.
Think that makes sense!, when you do it as often as I do, it becomes second nature, it's the trying to explain it, that it tends to come out garbled!!!

I think that the problem that we all had with the Navi when starting out is the Changeable Menu Options that M1-3 have when you have done something. I finally got the lightbulb moment with it and can only say go slow and watch the screen, particularly what shows on the screen after you have done a change. OK is what you are looking for a Menu to have changed to! Plus pressing the right M1-3 to make that change happen.Thanks for that.

Also would you or anyone have the time and patience to walk me step by step through how I would read the CV values (29 and 49 is of interest to muns ).
I thank you all
