Re: Where is the official download site for CVManager and Quantum Upgrade programs?

Thanks for that info Gregg
The description of your "other" group states:
"Hi, this a forum I started so we have a QSI Solutions forum that is controlled by the QSI solutions people. I'm working with Josh to manage the last of the stock of decoders, and am looking into what it would take to make more of the G scale Titan. Note this is QSI Solutions, not QS Industries"

That is interesting.  I thought that Josh Shedaker was totally out of the picture. No?  Your group's description seems to indicate that he is still involved with OSI decoders?  If so, then you and him probably have the latest in the sound files for all the decoders and Quantum Programmer.  Not sure then why you are asking where to find the latest versions (other than is on Josh's website).

To be honest, having two separate companies managing a line of sound decoders is a bit awkward, but it is what it is.  It is not your doing either.  MAybe that is the reason QSI and QSI-S ended up where it is now - at what it seems to be a dead end.  Those Revolution and Titan decoders were way ahead of its time when they were developed.  I can't even imagine what the next generation woudl look like if the company thrived instead of fading away.  I suspect thay woudl give ESU and ZIMO run for their money.

I'm still amazed at the functionality and programmability of the Revolution decoder in my Walthers//Life-Like N scale 2-8-8-2 loco.  The 400+ pages manual clearly speaks to that decoder's capabilities. And that was back about 14 years ago!  That decoder still has the most accurate BEMF-synched chuffs from any other sound decoder I have worked with.

This software is used for all QSI updates, the Titans are current manufacture, right? (O scale one is for sale on their site.)

So, based on the many updates for these 2 programs, I find it hard to believe there have been no updates in the years since Josh went away.

Sure would like a comment from a QS Industries employee.

Greg

P.S. I uploaded the latest versions of the 2 programs to the QSI Solutions group, which I manager. All are welcome to join.

QSIS is the owner of some of the decoder designs, and sound files, and software. Since QSIS is long gone there are not and will no longer be updates. There really is no need for updates as the product hasn't changed since the last version was deleted.

Thank you Greg and Peteski,

Upon receiving a hint that such issues have already been discussed in the group archives, I was able to check that probably the 2 Ohm resistor in the Programmer is damaged. I will first try to replace this and then try again.

Üdvözlettel,

Hmm  . . .  the buzz and flashing red light seems to me to indicate a hardware problem.  Is the loco you are trying to access with the Quantum programmer fully functional? Can you run it problem-free on your regular DCC system?

What model is it? What decoder is installed?

One error message I get says:

The other:
SI_Read returns SI_REAF_TIMED_OUT
 
There is a very quiet short buzz from the programmer and the red light starts blinking quickly.

Greg,
I'm fairly certain that what is on Josh's site is the  latest versions of everything.  QS Industries has not been very active in developing new software.

So there is a "sister" group called 'QSI Solutions" on group.io?  How active is it?

I also wonder if you will be able to upload anything to this group - I tried and was not able to. I contacted the group owner about it, but I never received a reply.

Re: Quantum programmer not functioning

Greg Elmassian
 

That looks like an error from the Silicon labs driver.

Let me ask a few things:
1. what version of firmware is on your programmer
2. what version of CV Manager are you using
3. what version of Quantum Update are you using?
4 running Quantum update, can you read the loco firmware from the decoder?

It is not common for the programmer to fail.

But if you try to run a loco with the JMRI throttle, you can definitely destroy the output transistors drawing too much current.

In general, do not do this with any G scale loco, confine yourself to exercising sounds, not the motor.

But first, what exactly is the error message?

Re: Quantum programmer not functioning

Kevin Strong
 

My first guess would be that a Windows update did something to the drivers for the programmer. You can try to reinstall those and see if that makes a difference. (I don't know what platform you're using to run the driver, so I'm going to assume Windows 10. I run mine from an old XP machine which Microsoft no longer tries to update.)

Gentlemen.

I hear all of you, trust me. With all this covid stuff going on, my wife and I have been juggling shifts as well as the grandson. 
All of the files you seek are archived and property of QSI. Josh lost the rights when he bailed, however, some of his wix files are still out there. 
I have been tasked with updating the QSIndustries.com web page.  Trust me, it wont look as snazzy as Josh's, but it should give you all the links you need.
In the mean time, please feel free to email me at qsindustries224@....

Thanks for all your support.

Well Greg,
AFAIK, the only person on this forum who  *IS* QSI is Kelly.  Not sure why he (or QSI) is not hosting the files in their website, but I seem to recall that even he referred QSI customers to Josh Shedaker's (partially broken) site for QSI sound files and other software/documentation downloads.  What are we to do?

I also suspect that Shedaker's website does in fact have the latest versions of the files - I don't recall any new products or sounds being released after Titan.

That may not be the official site but it is the only site as far as I know.   Ask Terry from QSI if there is one.

Ed.Sauers <dockside98@...>
 

Greg,

The following is my opinion on the QSI support effort.

Most of the members on this group are long term supporters of QSI, we stay in support of QSI because the Titan is still the best and most sophisticated DCC decoder on the market.

We would all love to have more info., updates and new products but these things are going to take extra time due to the lose of Josh, QSI did not just loose one person, Josh was the QSI support arm, and with his exit QSI had to scramble to cover multiple areas of support without any prior notice. QSI Isn't Microsoft or Apple so when they lose a worker like Josh it could take years to recover from that (how many sound engineers would be willing to work for a model railroad decoder company?, I sure they are in demand) it would take a person that has a love for model railroading sounds and the model railroad hobby itself. 

Most of us are willing to wait and hope that QSI will some day be able to return to the level of support that was present before Josh made his exit but until then we wait patiently and hope for the best!.

Yeah, there's no place to get the latest (or even know the latest) version.

Josh is gone, and he was not a QS Industries employee.

Very weird that these 2 softwares are not somewhere hosted by QS Industries.

The latest versions I have are 
CVManager 3.1.0.39
QuantumUpgrade 3.1.0.5

Anyone have anything newer?

I have the groups.io site QSI-Solutions, I guess I better start uploading files there....
