IB-Com, Märklin and programming track

Postby tombjo » 10.02.2011, 08:47

Dear Railers,
can anyone tell me how the programming track is working.
I connect the PT with IB-Com (PT connector) and tried to program a loc from RocRail. Nothing happens.
Did I miss anything?

Kind regards

Hi Tommie,

did you activate the "PT" toggle button on the programming tab in Rocview?

In case you are communication with the LocoNet protocol this won't be necessary.

[EDIT]
Is this the same issue as:

?
Best Regards, Rob.

Hi tommie
I have had a similar problem with programming Hornby decoders from Rocrail, but the end result was the decoder did not support programming of all CV's as it was too basic. Maybe this helps.

Thanks for quick answer rjversluis.
I have used the PT button in RocRail and nothing happens.
Is there any other way to check it up?

The link is not the same issue but it's a friend of mine who has this problem.

Conclusion: The PT track is not working in Sweden :lol:

Hope anyone has a solution to this problem of mine.

Hi Tommie,

there are many Rocrail users running their layout with an IB-COM and also use it for PT.
You have to wait for some of them to respond.

In the mean time you could post your rocrail.ini and rocrail traces in a zip.
Best Regards, Rob.

Hi Rob,

Hi Tommie,

you are using LocoNet, so there is no need to switch on the PT button. It should work out of the box.

And yes, the *.trc files are the kind I asked for. Just zip and post them.

[EDIT]
But I'm not sure if you can program Märklin decoders; LcoNet is DCC.
Best Regards, Rob.

Sorry, I used WinRar instead of WinZip.
Now it's working (I hope).

Hi Tommie,

you must first configure the communication right with your IB-Com; All traces from february are without a working connection.
