Hornby E-Link...

Hi
Some good news and some not so good news.
Hornby has a new command station designed to work exclusively with their Railmaster software via a pc/laptop/handheld device,etc.
Rumour has it that it is an Elite without any user controls or a view screen. See here: http://www.hornby.com/shop/2013-range/e ... ansformer/
I wanted to see if it would work with Rocrail so I switched it for the Hornby Elite previously in use with no (real) problems.
It worked straight away without changing any settings in Rocrail, except that it sends all commands 5 times.
There is a known problem with the Elite missing out on command listen/sends so it seems Hornby may have elected to send multiple commands to get the job done.
I have no way of measuring this activity except what I see on the UI client/server panes.
Can anyone please suggest what may be happening here.
Thanks Rob

Hi,

why spending money on Hornby's faulty hardware!?
The used protocol is Xpressnet so it has to confirm every command. If it does not; Try to get your money refunded and buy the original from Lenz.

In this case the bad news is Hornby.
