Now here's an interesting problem: I can't seem to get my three TCS T1 decoders to work reliably with short (2 digit) addressing with my DCC systems!I've just completed fitting another T1 to my old Kalamazoo 4-4-0 (following on from fitting in Playmobil block as per my other thread from today).
Jason,Well its my turn for an update and you can probably guess what happened to mine.
After fitting decoder and setting to 28 speed steps and to address 25 without any problems using a Massoth system i placed engine on mainline and went for it.
Everything went fine so i rebuilt engine and began testing.
After engine had been running for over a day with and without any load it all looked ok mind you at times i was running it close to the limit with 4 wagons on, and then the front wheels derailed and caused a short which blew the chip and engine died there and then!
Now i kept my Massoth system at 24v as i could not find a way to change track voltage only track amps, although after working with my dads new Massoth system i see the latest firmware does include and option to change track voltage between 7 - 24v so i will update mine tomorrow and then have another look at the T1 decoder.
As for the warranty not sure if that will cover use on G Scale items but it could be worth a try did not think of it myself.
