I had received my new engine, an RHB "Blick" engine and was using two different kinds of remotes at once, one was a dimax navigator snd the other an old Lgb remote. . The engine started playing the horn for every sound that I had. So I shut it all down and decided to leave it for a few days. . It was quite weird hearing all of the horns going of on my train when I was trying to hit some of the other sounds on the train. I believe that this sound issue started when I used the Lgb remote Does anybody have any ideas on what happened? I am now headed down stairs to check on this locomotive. Now I just came up from my basement after finding out that the sound from my train were back after having lost them thee days

Sounds a bit like a serial / parallel issue, with (I assume) F1 for horn, and higher F numbers being interpreted as multiple F1 signals. How that happened and why it is not happening now is a bit if a mystery.

Hello Philip,
I tried to send you yesterday and just a minute ago an answer, but it looks like that I got my answer back to myself. I used the answer button.
Just in case, that the answer did not get through to you. I'm interested in that copie, please.

again, you must match:

mode of decoder to mode of control...

parallel vs serial
14 ss vs 28 ss

FYI all Original LGB serial decoders were 14 steps only and did not have BEMF (55020 by Lenz and Massoth). 55021 decoders were 14/28 speed steps.
There were several firmware versions of these decoders and the higher the version number, the more features they had.
Also watch out for the function keys for F1-8 as there are 2 different tables (1-8 and 9-16)

CV51 Command for F1 terminal
0. lighting button (LGB=9, others=0)
1. button 1 (parallel only)
2. button 2 (parallel only)
3. button 3 (parallel only)
4. button 4 (parallel only)
5. button 5 (parallel only)
6. button 6 (parallel only)
7. button 7 (parallel only)
8. button 8 (parallel only)
9. button 1 (parallel and serial)
10. button 2 (parallel and serial)
11. button 3 (parallel and serial)
12. button 4 (parallel and serial)
13. button 5 (parallel and serial)
14. button 6 (parallel and serial)
15. button 7 (parallel and serial)
16. button 8 (parallel and serial)
17. buttons 1-8 with fast pulse string (for 55021 with P-Update only)
18. lighting button (LGB=9, others=0) (on only when loco is reversing)
19. button 1 (on only when loco is reversing)
20. lighting button (LGB=9, others=0) (on only when loco is moving forward)
21. button 1 (on only when loco is moving forward)
