Indexed Configuration Values

  • There is an issue in the PowerPro command station software which causes incorrect writes on any Indexed CV address above 256. Using the Program Track, Indexed CV write operations are truncated to an eight bit value, causing any CV greater than 256 to be misinterpreted and the incorrect CV to be written. To prevent this do not use the program track with indexed CVs. JMRI is aware of the problem and can work around the firmware issues.
  • Recent (2015/2016) versions of JMRI are capable of programming indexed CVs with an NCE PowerPro DCC system. Attempting to program indexed CVs using the NCE throttle will result in problems with respect to values being written into the incorrect CV.
