Re: Contacting qsi regarding purchasing a new programmer.

 

Peteski: This was the first notice.
Email Kelli Dorf directly at kelly.dorf@...
This is what I received.

So you can see where I got the wrong spelling.
So I've now sent another email to "kelly.dorf'. Not undel yet! So all we can do now is wait and see if I get a response. I believe it was said that he takes some time t respond. So let's see - wait a week or so.??

Morgan,
I'm not trying to be cheeky, but when you said the email to Kelly bounced back to you as undeliverable, what reason was given?  Usually when email are bounced the email server provides a reason for the bounce. Things like "no such user", or "mailbox full" for example.  What reason were you given?  Just trying to "troubleshoot" the problem.

Re: Contacting qsi regarding purchasing a new programmer.

 

Frank: The misspelled name is only here in the forum. The actual email was spelled correctly. OK?
To Kevin and Gilbert and any of you that like to bash QSI. You may have good reason. You may have the right to feel bitter. But this group is mainly for people who own and like/love QSI decoders. And hopefully give support, advice and help to other modelers who own QSI decoders. So, please don't be negative. Be positive. If you'd like to sell your QSI decoders, I'm sure there are those on here that would be more than happy to take them off your hands. In case you haven't noticed, there are some modelers who have many QSI decoders, love them, and are ready to take them off your hands. I do wish to thank those of you who have offered the manuals, or have attached them here. I like to think that most Railroad Modelers are positive thinkers and are more than willing to assist other RM. Note the difference: MR vs RM.

And one other thing, while I’m on a rant about QSI.  CVP now makes a unit that can convert any decoder to wireless operation. BUT – it is a power hog and the one engine I have one in won’t run at anything faster than about 30 MPH scale speed. 


That's one I haven't heard before. I've used Airwire's "Convertr receivers, but haven't noticed them limiting my power in any way. Typically even with 14.8v batteries, I'm limiting my top speed setting on my locos quite a bit. My max speed for all my locos is around 30mph, as I typically run narrow gauge steam. Most of my locos have CV 5 set to around 180 give or take to achieve that.

Having said that, there are now wireless DCC receivers from a handful of other vendors which will work well with QSI's decoders. Tam Valley Depot's receiver works with Airwire transmitters. Revolution makes a DCC-compatible system for their Train Engineer line of controllers, and Blue Rail Trains offers a bluetooth receiver that works with DCC decoders.

For me personally, I've given up on QSI and moved on to its competitors. I like their boards, but Soundtraxx and TCS allow me to customize the sounds from a vast library already installed on the decoder itself without the need for an external programmer. And since I can't get my programmer to work with Windows 10 anyway, it's kind of a moot point even if they were available.

Later,

Morgan,

One thing I noticed is that you misspelled Kelly, that would make the email undeliverable.

The brilliance of the QSI wireless unit was that it plugged directly into the board, not between the battery and board like the CVP unit - and you could pull it in and out of the circuit with just a command.

 

The QSI Titan Large Scale decoders were phenomenal, complex products and I invested a lot of time in learning how to tweak them.  Now they’re gone.

The Quantum Titan Large Scale stuff is history, so far as I know.  And wireless operation depended on a receiver with a chip that Linx stopped making, just as I had three new locos to wire.  An updated version was supposed to be in the works when Mr. Shaedecker got crosswise with the parent company and support ceased. At that time I had (and still have) two Titans that needed repair.  I see nothing on the present website that indicates any support for the large scale stuff.  In fact, the first iteration of the site essentially told the large scalers to take a walk – that “we aren’t ‘QSI Solutions’”.

 

I have an 11 year old Magnum still going strong.  I was a loyal customer and spent a lot of $$$ and got screwed.

Why are you saying that QSI doesn't support their products? I have send decoders and programmers to QSI for repair and they have repaired them without delay.

GIVE THEM A BREAK!!!!

be glad for what they have done for use!!

For All. and FYI: I now have 32 manuals for QSI in my file. From 2003 to 2016. Most notated as for a version 7 decoder, which is what I have. Other manuals are recently received, for the programmer, etc. But I thought I'd let y'all know just how much info is still available to QSI decoder owners. And none of these I have mention Titan. Apparently all I have is for the older decoders. Of which I suspect there are a few around. Not everyone is a "QSI hater". So if anyone wishes a copy of one or so of what I have, email "pennsynut at gmail dot com. I share freely, just as those above have done. We must be willing to share whatever we have.

Re: Contacting qsi regarding purchasing a new programmer.

 

I tried sending an email to kelli.dorf at gmail and it is undel. So would someone please contact Kelli and ask him/her to contact this group so we can communicate. Or, if Kelli is reading these, please let us know how to help. I'm sure most of us are willing to do what we can to help promote QSI. The decoder is too good to be left to die on the market. IMHO even if the web isn't feasible - this groups.io certainly is. And we can all help keep QSI on the market - even if only by voice/email/etc. Let the "haters" know we care. And if people want to "hate", that's their problem.

Thanks to all. I now have what I need and Al and I are working on my purchase of the programmer from him. And if I need help when I get it, I can always rely on "QSI groups.io" for knowledgeable people with friendly helpful answers. Right?

Hello Al, PennsyNut and Gilbert,
Let me solve your problem. I have the Quantum Programmer Installation Guide in PDF format. Its Version 1.0.3 dated 3rd February 2016. If interested whoever buys the programmer, contact me at goveas dot donald at gmail dot com.
I will gladly oblige you. 
I would also like to state that if anybody 'hates' QSI, I am ready to buy their decoders, if in working condition, and if offered at a reasonable price. I have about 15 locos with QSI decoders running flawlessly over a decade.
Best Regards
Donald

Folks I have a QSI programmer that I'm willing to sell. I was in contact with Morgan Bilbo but since I don't have a manual he doesn't seem to be interested. The programmer has the powersupply, USB cable and the track connection which at this is a couple of wires with Alligator clips. It has been used a couple of times but I don't have the locos anymore. This will go to the first person that contacts me and purchases it.
