If you do that in-service mode it should take as well.

Hi All,

Further to my question regarding the Mars light I have made progress,
sort of.
Having tried everything suggested, I resorted to a factory reset via the
handset which bought the loco back to the same operating condition as
the others. However, as you would expect, it's default address 03. This
shouldn't be a problem, however when I went to change the address back
to 63 (loco number) it won't let me do it. It takes 63 and reads it back
as the address, but I have no control under that address.
Not sure what to do now...

Gerry,

Thank you; I tried CV29 bit 2=0 and set CV11=1.  Everything works perfectly now; the engine slows based on momentum and then comes to a complete stop.

Independent control over Number Board Lights

kjlovesya
 

Hello all,

  I've got an issue with a Titan ver.  9.3.2

  I've set the number boards to be controlled using F16   CV53.18.0=101,   CV53.18.1 = 101 in CV Manager.

  Feature configuration initial state is what I'm having problems with.   I want automatic control off - done!  But initial state of the number boards On.   Then the F16 will turn the boards on and off at will.

 The problem is the number boards are only controlled by the Initial State box in CV Manager.  I have no control over the lights using F16.

  What am I missing?

Re: P2K Mars Light

Hi KJ,


I thought it might be a bit tricky to answer cold as it were.


I have been programming via my Lenz LH-100 but I do have the ability to
hook up to the PC and use decoder Pro. At the moment, I'll settle for as
delivered state and worry about the independent control later.
I'll give F11 a try and see what effect that has and read back CV64 in
the next few days when I get back to it and report back. Headlight
dimming isn't a priority at the moment.


All the best,


Kristian.


Re: GG1 Titan Decoder

kjlovesya
 

Hi Jay,

  I'm not sure I understand what you wrote.  

"Installed it in a Weaver GG1. Was able to program on program track with power booster. However, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Using NCE ProCab. Seems the 4 key has some effect but I not sure what is going on."

  The "However, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't."  is that referring to programming or actually running the locomotive?

  "Seems the 4 key has some effect..."  -  Are you asking what Function 4 does?   What does the manual say about the GG1 default function map for Function 4 button?  


  Do you have any of the following:   JMRI Decoder Pro, QSI Programmer or a NCE system hooked up to a computer?   Can you 'read' the decoder?   That may tell you what the Feature Map default for Function 4 is.

Hi Kristian,

  What you are asking is difficult to answer on a forum.   However,  if we know a bit more information, perhaps we can help.

1/  Do you have any of the following:  JMRI Decoder Pro, QSI Programmer or a NCE system hooked up to a computer?

2/  Which do you want, as delivered state or Independent control over Headlight and Mars lights? 

3/  Have you tried pressing Function button 11.   (Factory default accessory light can sometimes be found mapped to F11)

4/  Do you want auto dimming Headlight or Dimmer independently controlled as well?

5/  Using Programming On the Main, program CV64 = 7.   What does the decoder say?

GG1 Titan Decoder

Jay Beckham
 

Installed it in a Weaver GG1. Was able to program on program track with power booster. However, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Using NCE ProCab. Seems the 4 key has some effect but I not sure what is going on. When it works horn sound great and so does the bell. Also compressor and other sounds. Have an open house the 17th and 18th and not sure I can trust it to work.



Any ideas?



Tomorrow I intend to install a Steam Titan in an engine, also QSI. Hope it works better than the GG1 decoder.



I do have a QSI programmer but had hope to do it with the NCE.



Thanks.

KJ,

There is nothing you can do to enable Horn Master. The firmware as built either supports Horn Master or it does not. All of the Q3 diesel firmware starting with version 9.3.0 support Horn Master.

For firmware that is built to support horn master, you select a horn master horn (which "activates" horn master) using CV55.1.1 Horn Type. All of the types from 10 on are pre-defined horn master horns. If you select type 2 User-defined Horn, you can use CV130 CV's to choose the number of chimes and specify the pitch of each chime.


>>> Is there a steam version of Horn Master?  <<<

A whistle version of horn master is still under development. Don't expect this soon. Whistle sounds are much more complex than horn sounds.

P2K Mars Light

kristian@...
 

Hi All,


New member from the UK with a question I hope someone will be able to answer.

I've been a QSI user for many years and have always been very impressed with the quality of each decoder be they steam, diesel or my Broadway GG1.

I have a couple of P2K(Walthers) QSI F7's that form an important part of my Milwaukee road collection. They were bought second hand and on arrival were set so the Mars light would flash when the main head light was on. I had reason to perform a factory reset on one but once this was done, only the head light comes on with F0. Despite trying all I can think of, I can't get back to as it was before the reset.

Does anyone know the CV setting required to get back to the as delivered (to me at least) state ? 

My ultimate aim is to be able to control the headlight and Mars light independently but I'll start with getting it the same as the others at the moment.


All the best,


Kristian

KJ,

>>> Perhaps I'm not so familiar with Feature 145 after all.   I thought you were referring to a Feature map number. <<<

The feature ID is the number you program to CV53.PI.SI in order to assign a feature to a function key.
For example, the feature ID for bell = 3. If you program 3 to CV53.9.1, then pressing F7 in NFF/NFR turns the bell on/off.

 
>>> 1/  What would cause the CV 53.1.1 = 143 (shutdown) instead of 145 (Disconnect/Standby/Shutdown)?    I certainly did
not program CV 53.1.1.    Is that some kind of Function button 9 default? <<<

Most firmware models have default CV53.11.1 = 145. On a few models, QSI Solutions requested the default CV53.11.1 = 143.


>>> 2/  Does double pressing Function button 9 (at idle) actually Program On the Main - Changing CV 53.1.1 = 145 to CV53.1.1 = 143 ? <<<

No. Double pressing F9 does not change any CV. Nearly all of the features assigned to function keys do not change any CV.
The exceptions include
Feature 63 System Volume Decrease (usually assigned by default to CV53.15.0 and CV53.15.1)
Feature 62 System Volume Increase (usually assigned by default to CV53.16.0 and CV53.16.1)
so that pressing F13 decreases the value of CV51.0 System Volume and pressing F14 increases the value of CV51.0.

Re: ATTN: QSI staff - Software/Firmware glitch inside

Hi Gerry,


 Add this to the above questions.

  Looking back, I think a little clarification in activating Horn Master is needed.  

1/  The firmware must be version 9-3-2 (in one of the Diesel loco sound sets)

2/  Enable "Only Supported CVs"

3/   _ _ _ _ _ _ _   ?


What else is needed in order to enable Horn Master?

Is there a steam version of Horn Master?   If so, what is required to enable it?


Thanks again for your help.

Hi Gerry,

  Perhaps I'm not so familiar with Feature 145 after all.   I thought you were referring to a Feature map number.



  Since this is a new decoder:

1/  What would cause the CV 53.1.1 = 143 (shutdown) instead of 145 (Disconnect/Standby/Shutdown)?    I certainly did not program CV 53.1.1.    Is that some kind of Function button 9 default?

 2/  Does double pressing Function button 9 (at idle) actually Program On the Main - Changing CV 53.1.1 = 145 to CV53.1.1 = 143 ?

Re: ATTN: QSI Staff - Update

kjlovesya
 

Hi Gerry,

  The non-working pop-up issue is on the page before I can choose OPs Mode or Service Mode.

  The decoder is 'new' so it's address would likely be set to "Short address 3".  However, this is irrelevant.  I can now do everything after I've chosen the decoder.   I'm just saying the pop-up before choosing the decoder is defective.

Re: Keep ALive Circuits

kjlovesya
 

Hi Rich,

  Just a heads up,  the Keep Alive interferes with loading firmware (using Quantum Upgrade).   You can add a connector to the Keep Alive while installing to allow unplugging if you plan to use Quantum Upgrade.

  Let us know how your install turns out.

KJ,

If you select "Options | Enable Only Supported CV's" you will not have these issues.

If you select "Options | Enable All CV's" all the CV's in QuantumCVManager are enabled, whether or not the decoder's
firmware supports them.

For example, if you Enable All CV's, QCVM shows CV51.3 enabled, even though the E9 firmware does not support this CV.

I try to keep QCVM updated with the latest CV defaults for the CV's supported by the most recent production firmware for each model.
The "Enable All CV's" option is provided only for those (hopefully) rare occasions where the most recent production
firmware for a particular model has a new CV or two added since the last QCVM release.

So, in general, do not Enable All CV's. If you do, beware that the firmware may not support some of these CV's.
